It had been a long day and all Ryo really wanted to do was go home, shower, eat, and get an early night. Fat chance of that!
There was still two hours to go until shift change, and he had a pile of paperwork to get through. If luck was on his side and they didn’t get called out on another case, there was a chance he might just be able to get it finished before taking off for the weekend. Two days off work seemed like a pipe dream after working double shifts all week.
At the desk opposite Ryo, Dee was rummaging through the files on his desk.
“Dammit, I need the folder on the Thompson case from the file room. Mind gettin’ it for me?”
Looking up from his work, Ryo glared at his partner; they’d been working together for three months and he’d had more than enough of being treated as a gofer.
“You’ve got legs, Dee; get it yourself. I’m through being your errand boy, I have more than enough work of my own to do,” he snapped.
To Ryo’s surprise, instead of getting annoyed, Dee grinned. “I was wonderin’ how long it would take before ya dug your heels in!” Pushing his chair back, he got to his feet. “Anything ya need while I’m up?”
“Coffee would be good.”
“You got it, partner.” Dee winked and set off for the file room.
Ryo shook his head, bemused. He’d never understand Dee Laytner.
