A/N: This one’s a double drabble. Dee’s thoughts are in italics.
Ryo was always gorgeous, a delight to Dee’s eyes; he knew he’d never tire of looking at his partner, even at work when looking was all he was allowed to do.
But today, Dee’s eyes were riveted on Ryo to the extent that he couldn’t force himself to look away. His heart was pounding, his mouth was dry, he could scarcely draw breath and all the blood had fled from his brain, heading south. Thank God he was sitting at his desk. This was so insanely hot it was practically unbearable.
“Ryo?” Dee croaked out.
“Isn’t that one of my shirts?”
“Oh, yeah, I lost a button off mine. You don’t mind, do you?”
“No, that’s fine. Was just wonderin’.”
“That’s okay then. I was in kind of a rush, but I should’ve asked first. Sorry.” Ryo smiled blithely.
‘I’m dyin’ here, and he doesn’t have a clue what he’s doin’ to me! I swear he’ll be the death of me!’
‘Did I say that out loud?’
“Are you okay? You look kinda flushed.”
‘Hell with this! There’s only so much a man can stand!’
Ryo never saw the pounce coming.
