Dee didn’t understand the words, but he didn’t really need to; the tone and the volume with which they were delivered told him everything he needed to know. Ryo was furious about something, but Dee could thank his lucky stars that at least this time his partner’s anger wasn’t being directed at him.
Still, some things were best left to run their course, so he wisely decided to keep his head down and his mouth shut until Ryo cooled off.
That night, as they were leaving work, Dee fell into step beside Ryo. “There’s somethin’ I’ve been meanin’ to ask you.”
“Oh? What’s that?”
“How come you always swear in Japanese?”
Ryo glanced sidelong at his partner and blushed slightly. “Um, well, I don’t want Bikky learning any bad words.”
Dee threw his head back and laughed. “You’re about eight years too late to prevent that, dude! The house ape probably knows more cuss words than you do. All you’re doin’ is teachin’ him to swear in a second language.”
Ryo’s blush deepened and he frowned. “I hadn’t thought of that.”
“Ah, don’t sweat it! At least if he starts cussin’ in Japanese, hardly anyone’s gonna understand what he’s saying!”
