Sometimes, the doubts would start to set in and JJ would wonder why he didn’t just give up on Dee and find someone else. He’d been hung up on the raven-haired detective since the moment they’d met, years ago in the police academy, and yet if JJ was honest with himself, Dee had never shown the slightest sign of interest in him.
Worse, it seemed that ever since Dee had met Ryo Maclean, the man who was now his work partner, he’d set his sights firmly on winning him, even though he didn’t seem to be making any progress. Another case of one-sided love.
Deep down, JJ knew he could keep throwing himself at Dee for eternity and it wouldn’t make the slightest bit of difference, his feelings for the other man would remain unrequited. And yet he just couldn’t bring himself to give up. Hope was all he had.
