Everyone turned to stare as Dee and Ryo walked into the squad room. Dee led the way, an expression of mingled embarrassment and shame on his face. Ryo was just behind, the seat of his pants wet with melting snow, holding a tissue to his split lip and laughing uncontrollably.
“What the hell happened to you?” Drake asked him.
“I slipped getting out of the car. Dee tried to grab me and accidentally punched me in the mouth instead,” Ryo managed to stop laughing long enough to explain.
Drake snorted. “Worst rescue attempt ever!”
“Don’t rub it in,” Dee growled.
