FAKE Drabble: They Don’t Know

Title: They Don’t Know

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Dee, mentions Ryo, the rest of the 27th’s detectives implied.

Rating: PG

Setting: After the manga.

Summary: The others have no idea…

Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.

A/N: For the prompt ‘They Don’t Know’ (I’m using a bunch of prompts I already used for Torchwood drabbles – this one’s a song title from the Billboard Hot 100 charts.)

Dee knows his friends feel sorry for him. They see him flirting with Ryo, as he always has, see Ryo rebuff him with an annoyed look, and he knows they’re wondering why he doesn’t just give up. It’s clear that they believe he’s wasting his time on a man who will never reciprocate his feelings.

But they don’t know.

They don’t see the other Ryo, needy and desperate, clinging to Dee as they move together, naked bodies glistening with sweat. They don’t see the fond looks, tender touches, shared showers.

If they did, they’d never feel sorry for Dee again.

The End


I really liked this. There is a lot of emotional mileage in such a few words.
Thank you! This, I have to admit, is probably my favourite of all the FAKE drabbles I've written. I've been sitting on it for quite a while, waiting for the perfect time to post it, so it's my 100th posted FAKE drabble =)

Something just clicked when I was going through old tw100 prompts, which I use to spark ideas for my FAKE drabbles, and I saw this one; it worked so well.
