A/N: This one’s a triple drabble.
Dee just stood, staring into space, feeling completely numb. He and Ryo had fought before, but never like that. He wasn’t certain, but he had a horrible feeling they might just have split up. Worst of all, he was pretty sure it had been his fault.
He’d had a bad day at work, gone over to Ryo’s and taken his foul mood out on his lover, snapping at him for no reason. That was when the fight started, ending with Ryo yelling at him to get out.
Hours of walking had brought him back here, standing outside Ryo’s building in the rain, staring up at the window and thinking of everything he’d managed to lose. After all he’d gone through to win Ryo in the first place, how could he have been so stupid? Ryo meant everything to him and now he’d thrown it all away…
“There you are. Have you cooled off yet?” a quiet voice asked. Dee turned to see Ryo standing on the stoop, raindrops sparkling in his hair. He looked tired. “I didn’t deserve that. You’re not the only one who had a rough day. Now get in here before you catch your death.”
Dee stared. “You’re not breaking up with me?”
“I probably should, but I’d rather not if you don’t mind. I’ve just got used to having you around.”
Dee leapt up the steps and pulled Ryo into his arms.
“I’m sorry, I’m an idiot.”
“I’m sorry you’re an idiot too, but I guess I’ll just have to live with that.” Ryo’s voice was muffled against Dee’s shoulder. “You were gone for hours, I was getting scared; you left without your phone.”
“I don’t deserve you. Love you so much, baby.”
”Love you too, Dee. More than anything.”
Somehow that made everything right again.
