A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Dee was worried; Ryo was working himself into the ground on their current case. He’d tried subtle hints, gentle persuasion, hell, he’d even tried ordering Ryo to quit working and get some rest, to no avail. He loved Ryo, but the man could be so fuckin’ pigheaded at times.
Still, Dee wasn’t about to give up. Ryo had barely eaten or slept in five days, he was practically living on coffee; something had to be done before he collapsed from sheer exhaustion.
“Okay, enough’s enough. I’m not lettin’ you kill yourself over this case. It’s home, dinner and bed for you,” Dee announced.
Ryo shook his head wearily.
“Can’t, there’s too much to do here.”
“Sure ya can. Here, let me help you.”
With that, Dee grabbed Ryo, threw him over his shoulder and headed for the stairs. Ryo kicked and struggled, yelling to be put down, but Dee was having none of it; he just tightened his grip, hoping the resulting bruises wouldn’t be too painful.
“Sorry, babe, can’t hear ya.”
By the time Dee reached his car, Ryo had stopped struggling. As Dee set him down to unlock the car, he found out why. Ryo was fast asleep.
