Dee stared out the window at the grey skies and snow-covered streets. When it had first started snowing a few weeks earlier, he’d been as thrilled as a kid on Christmas, but now the pristine white covering had turned into uneven, filthy, frozen clumps and mounds, interspersed with patches of treacherous ice. Winter had definitely lost its charm.
“We need a change of scene,” he decided, turning to Ryo. “We’ve both got holiday time we need to use up, how about we take a couple of weeks off and go somewhere sunny and warm?”
“Will the Chief let us both take time off together?” Ryo asked.
“Only one way to find out! I’ll ask tomorrow. Now, fire up your laptop and let’s decide where we can afford to go.”
Ryo smiled, doing as Dee asked. Escaping the bleak winter weather sounded wonderful. He just hoped Dee could persuade the Chief.
