Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
A/N: My third attempt. It didn’t quite work as a drabble so I re-wrote it as a double drabble.
Dee finished cleaning Ryo’s kitchen, leaving everything gleaming, and crept quietly into the bedroom to check on his partner. The sight that met his eyes stopped him in his tracks. How could one man be so heartbreakingly beautiful? Fast asleep, Ryo looked like an angel. Dee found himself irresistibly drawn towards him.
Sitting carefully on the edge of the bed, he reached out to rest his hand lightly on Ryo’s forehead, relieved to find that his fever finally seemed to have gone. It was about time too. It had surprised Dee to realise just how worried he’d been about Ryo.
As he gazed into the sleeping man’s face, Dee felt his willpower start to crumble. Ryo looked so peaceful, lost in sleep as Dee gently brushed the hair back from his closed eyes.
Although he knew Ryo needed the rest, the temptation eventually proved too great for Dee to resist. Sending up a silent prayer of thanks, he leaned down, capturing Ryo’s lips in a soft, gentle kiss and feeling faintly guilty as Ryo stirred and woke.
Dee expected to be pushed away and yelled at, but for once, seemingly still half asleep, Ryo offered no resistance.
It was bliss.
