Ryo picks up his luggage and draws the crisp, clean air into his lungs, letting his breath out in a happy sigh.
“Smell that air Dee, there’s nothing like the scent of a pine forest!” He gestures towards a signpost. “Looks like we made it!”
“It’s about time. Haven’t they ever heard of the phrase ‘Limo service’?” Dee grumbles.
“You want some cheese with that whine?”
Dee’s grumpy about having to walk the kilometre or so from the parking lot, but Ryo’s determined not to let his partner’s bad mood spoil their vacation before it’s even really started. After all, he didn’t make the other man come with him; Dee invited himself along, so he has no right to complain about the location or their lodgings.
This is just what they need though, a secluded little hotel in the middle of a pine forest. What could possibly be a better location for spending a couple of weeks relaxing and unwinding? They’re going to have a wonderful time hiking in the surrounding forest; Ryo just knows it. The fresh air and exercise will do them both good after the smog of New York. This will be a vacation they’ll never forget.
