A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
The sun was warm, the sky was blue, and it seemed as though half the city had decided to descend on Central Park. Everywhere Dee looked, people were sunbathing, flying kites, throwing Frisbees, walking dogs… He didn’t care. All that mattered was getting to spend his day off with Ryo.
They’d found a spot by the lake, spread out their picnic blanket, and settled down for a leisurely lunch. Nearby, ducks bobbed about on the water, like a flotilla of feathery boats, occasionally upending themselves to dabble beneath the surface. Ryo pointed out the different breeds; he seemed to have an encyclopaedic knowledge of birds.
Picking up a ham sandwich, Dee took a big bite, washing it down with a mouthful of beer. Oh yeah, this was the life! No paperwork, no mean old badger yelling at him, just him and his baby, kicking back and relaxing on a sunny summer’s day. It didn’t get better than this.
He was about to take another bite of his sandwich when it was abruptly snatched from his hand, nearly taking his fingers too, and he found himself face-to-face with a gigantic swan.
“Ack! Maybe we should find someplace safer for our picnic!”
