A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Ryo had been out buying groceries when he’d walked in on a robbery in progress. It definitely hadn’t been his finest hour as a detective, he reflected as he lay limply on the sofa in his apartment with an ice pack on his head.
Bikky was being surprisingly considerate, getting on with his homework and keeping quiet in deference to Ryo’s splitting headache. Through half-open eyes, Ryo saw him check his phone yet again, before getting up to open the door. Dee was outside, just slipping his own phone back into his pocket.
Stepping inside, he glanced at Bikky, muttering a quiet “Thanks, kiddo.”
That was weird.
‘They must really be worried about me if they’re not insulting each other,’ Ryo thought groggily.
Making a beeline for the sofa, Dee crouched down beside Ryo, a concerned expression on his face.
“Hey, babe. What the hell happened? Bikky said you tried to prevent a robbery!”
Ryo smiled wanly.
“’Tried’ is right. I almost got one of the perps, but then his accomplice hit me over the head with a pineapple,” he admitted sheepishly. “I don’t remember anything else.”
Dee laughed so hard he fell over.
“Only you, Ryo!”
