A/N: The Opening line of dialogue is borrowed from the manga.
“By the way, you want to stay the night?”
Such an innocent question, but it sent a surge of hope through Dee. Could Ryo’s offer actually mean what he thought?
A pounce seemed in order.
With Ryo pinned to the floor beneath him, Dee stared into those impossibly dark eyes, seeing only confusion and worry instead of the hoped for desire. With a heavy sigh, he slumped on top of his partner. He couldn’t keep doing this, not to himself and not to Ryo. It wasn’t fair to either of them.
Ryo would never be his, pursuing him was hopeless.
