Title: Everything’s Changed
Characters: Ryo, Dee
Setting: At the end of Vol. 7.
Summary: Ryo’s fears were unfounded.
Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
A/N: For the prompt ‘Everything Has Changed’ (I’m using a bunch of prompts I already used for Torchwood drabbles – this one’s a song title from the Billboard Hot 100 charts.)
Lying in Dee’s arms, drowsy and content, Ryo couldn’t help but wonder why he’d resisted for so long, why it had taken him another three weeks to ask Dee out and admit how he felt. His fears seemed ridiculous now. He was still the same man, just happier, more at ease, and feeling very thoroughly loved. He’d be sore in the morning, but a good kind of sore.
“What are you thinking about?” Dee murmured.
“I was scared about what might happen if I gave in to what I wanted.”
“Now everything’s changed. I’m not scared anymore.”
