FAKE Drabble: Tidying Up

Title: Tidying Up

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Dee, Ryo

Rating: PG

Setting: Sometime during the manga

Summary: Dee has learned that cleaning calms Ryo.

Written For: The tw100 prompt ‘Cleaning House’

Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.

Dee lounged on the sofa watching Ryo bustling about, cleaning. The place already seemed spotless to him, but a little detail like that wouldn’t stop Ryo when he was in the mood to clean.

They’d been working a particularly distressing child abuse case recently. Cleaning seemed to be Ryo’s way of soothing himself, as if by tidying things away he could do the same with his thoughts, tucking them where they belonged and shutting a door.

By the time he settled beside Dee, Ryo was much calmer. Dee found himself wishing he could tidy his own thoughts away like that.

The End
