Trust Dee to blunder into poison ivy on their hike, despite all of Ryo’s warnings. It might have been okay if Dee hadn’t managed to make things worse by tripping up when Ryo yelled at him to get out of it, but… Well, maybe if they hadn’t been messing about with the Frisbee they’d found, and if Ryo hadn’t thrown it quite so hard, and Dee hadn’t gone tearing after it like a puppy chasing a ball…
It was all too easy to be wise in hindsight.
Pained whimpers came from Dee, who was lying rigidly still on the bed in their hotel room while Ryo smeared cream all over the rash to soothe the itching. So much for their romantic weekend getaway, Dee was much too itchy and uncomfortable to indulge in everything he’d had planned. Looked like he’d be losing out on sleep for all the wrong reasons.
