A/N: Yes, I know I’ve written and posted a ficlet on the same theme, but I wrote this drabble before I wrote the ficlet, so I’m going to post it anyway, as a precursor to a ficlet from Dee’s POV that I hope to post tomorrow.
Sitting on his bed, Ryo sipped hot coffee, thinking sad thoughts about his parents. To everyone else, Christmas Eve was a time of joy to be shared with loved ones, but to Ryo it was the saddest day of the year. That was why he’d volunteered to work, so he wouldn’t be alone with the blues.
That idea had backfired.
Now here he was, all by himself in an empty apartment, feeling utterly alone.
Until the door opened and Dee walked in, bearing champagne and the tiniest Christmas tree Ryo had ever seen.
Suddenly, it was his best Christmas ever.
