A/N: This one’s a triple drabble.
As ideas went, it probably wasn’t the best one Ryo had ever had. He was man enough to admit that, although at the time it had seemed like a no-brainer. The huge and heavy flat-pack box had got itself wedged as he’d put it in the trunk of his car, so he’d climbed in with it, and from that position it had been simple to get it free and settle it among the other boxes already there.
Unfortunately for him, the other end of the box must have caught on something else and the next thing he knew, he was in a bit of a predicament. There was only one thing to do; he pulled out his phone and hit speed dial.
“Hey babe! What’s up? You sound a bit muffled.”
“Ah, about that. I’m sort of a bit stuck; I could use some help, if it’s no trouble…”
“Sure. You know me, always happy to be of assistance. Where are ya?”
Ryo told him and twenty minutes later, Dee pulled in beside Ryo’s car.
“You really shouldn’t leave your keys in the lock,” Dee teased as he opened the trunk and smirked down at his lover. “How many times have I told you that? Someone might’ve stolen your car and driven off with you in it!”
Ryo blushed. “It’s a good thing I left them where I did; they wouldn’t have been any use to either of us if they’d been in my pocket.”
“Maybe, but I still could’a got you out. I can jimmy a lock, no problem. It’s a useful skill for a cop to have, in case someone’s trapped in their car after an accident.”
He offered a hand to help Ryo out. “Only you would lock yourself in the trunk of your own car.”
