Sprawled at his desk, eyes half closed, Dee Laytner covertly studied his new partner, who was slaving away over the paperwork from their current case. It made Dee feel tired just watching him. They’d only been working together for a month and already Ryo looked frazzled.
“You shouldn’t be pushin’ yourself so hard, man, all that stuff’s not goin’ anywhere,” Dee advised. “Keep up that pace all the time and you’re gonna burn yourself out before long.”
Ryo glared at him.
“Seriously, dude, you need to learn to relax.”
“If you’d do your share, maybe I’d have time to relax!”
