A/N: This one got away from, me so it’s a triple drabble.
“Do you realise we’ve been up all night?” Ryo asked blearily.
“Ugh, yeah. Hell of a night. On the bright side, that drug ring is history. The chief better thank us with a few days off; we went above and beyond, considering our shift ended twelve hours ago. Man, all I wanna do is go home, shower, and sleep. Not necessarily in that order.” Dee sagged against the side of their unmarked police car, yawning.
“Don’t fall asleep here,” Ryo chuckled. “Maybe I should drive.”
“Nah, I’m fine. Hey, look! Sun’s coming up! A whole new day’s just starting.”
“Better head back to the precinct then, write up our reports.”
“Aw, dude! The paperwork can wait! I’m beat!”
“It won’t take long, and if we get it done right away the Chief’s more likely to give us time off.”
“Well, when you put it that way… Okay, let’s just get it over with. On one condition.”
“We stop somewhere for a coffee first. If we’re doin’ paperwork, I’ll need me a shot of caffeine to stay awake, and I want good coffee, not the swill we get at the 27th.”
“Okay, I could use a coffee too. How about that place by the river? It’s only a few blocks away.”
“Good choice. Y’know, maybe while we drink our coffee we could watch the sunrise, whaddaya think? A little romance to start the day off right?”
“Dee…” Ryo blushed faintly.
“Is that a yes?”
“True, but that’s why you love me, right?”
“Not the only reason.”
“Good to know. C’mon, let’s get goin’.” Dee opened the driver’s side door and climbed in, leaning across to unlock the passenger door. The day might be only just beginning, but it looked like it was off to a great start!
