A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Dee stood looking up at Ryo’s lighted bedroom window, waiting to catch sight of his lover. It was stupid, but they’d had a rough day and Ryo had been injured trying to get handcuffs on a drugged up perp. Nothing serious, just a wrenched shoulder, but still, Dee wanted to make sure he’d made it home okay.
He’d had to take the perp in while Ryo got his shoulder checked, but even though Ryo had phoned to say he was fine, Dee knew he wouldn’t rest until he’d seen for himself. His patience was rewarded when he finally saw Ryo pass the window. Good, he was safe.
Dee was about to leave when his phone rang.
“You planning on staying out there all night or are you coming up?” Ryo sounded gently amused; Dee couldn’t help smiling.
“Sorry, babe. I wanted to make sure you were okay, just didn’t want to disturb you. Figured you’d probably want to rest after today.”
“I do, but I’d rest easier with you here. Unless you have other plans.”
“Nothing that’s more important than you. Sure you don’t mind?”
“Door’s open, Dee. Don’t be long.”
“On my way.”
They could both rest now.
