Ryo had been doing some badly needed renovations on his apartment; there was a lot that needed to be done, so he was checking his to do list as he arrived at work. One particular thing jumped out at him and he smiled. He knew just the person to help him.
“Morning, Dee,” he called to his partner as he hung his coat up in the squad room. “Can you come over to my place tonight if you don’t have plans? I’ve got a hole that needs filling.”
Dee spluttered into his coffee and turned to stare at his partner in surprise, a broad grin slowly spreading across his face. “Say no more, baby, I’m always ready and willing to fill your hole!” he purred seductively, rising to his feet in preparation for a pounce.
Ryo frowned at his partner’s reaction, quickly going back over their conversation in his head. As understanding belatedly dawned, his eyes widened and he could feel his face heating up, right to the roots of his hair and the tips of his ears. “Oh! No, that’s not what I meant! Some plaster’s come off the wall in Bikky’s room, leaving a hole, and I know you said you were doing some plastering for Mother a couple of weeks ago, so I was hoping there might be enough left over to…” He trailed off, still blushing.
“Oh, right.” Dee sagged back into his seat; shot down again. “Sure, bud, I can do that for ya. I’ll be over with my tools around seven, have that hole fixed in no time.” Any invitation to spend time with Ryo was welcome; Dee intended to take advantage of every opportunity that presented itself, even if it was only because his partner wanted to take advantage of his plastering skills.
