Ryo’s eyes widened as Dee limped into the squad room, leaning on a cane.
“Dee! What happened?”
Dee mumbled something, but all Ryo caught was the word ‘spring’. He knew Dee got hayfever when the trees were in blossom, but he’d started taking his allergy meds before the pollen could cause problems. Besides, how could hayfever cause a leg injury?
“I was chasing a mugger down an alley, followed him over a wall, and landed on an old bed. My foot got tangled in the springs. Fire brigade had to cut me loose.”
“Damned mugger got away.”
