A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Dee wanted to do something nice for his lover; Ryo deserved it. He’d been on his own all month while Dee was undercover, yet despite working long hours and dealing with the house ape, he’d somehow managed to fit in cleaning Dee’s apartment, clearing out his refrigerator, and doing all his laundry, including the ironing.
He owed his baby big time, but what would say ‘thank you’ best? Taking him out to dinner wasn’t enough; it should be something that would take time and effort on Dee’s part.
The idea hit him like a bolt from the blue; Ryo had been giving him cooking lessons for a while now. Why didn’t he put what he’d learned into practice? How hard could baking a cake be?
A trip to the shops got him all the necessary ingredients, then it was just a case of putting everything together following the recipe.
Dee grinned sheepishly as he presented the cake. It was lopsided, and a bit crispy around the edges, but he’d tried.
Ryo’s face lit up; he didn’t care what it looked like, Dee had taken the trouble of baking it for him. As far as Ryo was concerned, it was perfect.
