A/N: This one’s a triple drabble.
JJ is at it again, babbling romantic nonsense, so Dee closes his ears and ignores him. It’s either that or take his attention off the barely moving traffic long enough to gag him. He has no idea what he did this time to get the old badger mad at him, but he must have done something, because getting partnered with JJ to tail a suspect has to be punishment.
Okay, so Ryo is in court and Dee needed backup for this, but couldn’t the Chief have assigned Ted, or Drake? Even the squad’s new rookie would’ve been better than saddling him with Jemmy J Adams, his own personal stalker.
“Shut up and keep an eye on that cab,” Dee snaps. They’re a couple of cars back, creeping through the evening rush hour. Tailing someone through a traffic jam is a nightmare; they could easily get held up at an intersection while the cab carrying their suspect gets away, or just as easily miss him disembarking and end up following an empty taxi. That wouldn’t happen if eagle-eyed Ryo were here.
“I am keeping an eye on it; I can still talk at the same time.”
Dee almost groans aloud when JJ goes right back to rambling about going on dates, and snuggling by an open fire, and true love, and sweet kisses, and suddenly more than anything Dee wants to hear Ryo’s voice. All the things JJ is saying, Dee would welcome if only they were coming from Ryo’s lips instead.
‘I’ve really got it bad,’ he realises, tuning JJ out again. ‘It’s only romantic nonsense when the wrong person is saying it.’ Because Dee knows he wants dates, and snuggling by the fire, and kisses that go on forever, but he only wants those things with Ryo.
