“Can I change my mind?” Dee asked, fanning himself with one of the files from his desk.
“Huh?” Ryo looked up from trying to unstick his shirt from his body. The humidity was so high that everything was sticking to everything else, and the laboring air conditioner was hardly making any difference at all to the temperature in the squad room.
“I said, can I change my mind?” Dee repeated.
“About what?” Ryo felt like he must have missed half this conversation somehow, because he had no idea what Dee was talking about. Then again, sometimes he thought Dee didn’t know what he was talking about either.
“Yesterday,” Dee reminded him. “When I said I wished we’d get some of the hot weather other parts of the country were gettin’. I think I’d rather be cold than feel like I’m cookin’ and meltin’ at the same time.”
“Oh.” Ryo frowned. “What was the question again?”
Dee shook his head. “Never mind. Forget I said anything.” He slumped in his seat; the past couple of weeks had been unseasonably cold, wet, and windy, but now he couldn’t help feeling this sudden heatwave was his punishment for complaining. He’d welcome the cold.
