A/N: This one’s a drabble and a half, 150 words.
Hate seemed much too mild a word for what Ryo felt when he looked at the man responsible for the deaths of his parents. Leo Grant was a mobster, a cold-hearted bastard who dealt in drugs and weapons, among other things, and he and some cronies had wiped out two innocent people. By mistake.
They didn’t even feel bad about, not really. They just went on with their lives as if nothing had happened while Ryo’s life was changed irrevocably.
He wanted to kill the bastard, gun him down in cold blood, just like Leo had done to his mom and dad, and yet he couldn’t do it, because unlike Leo, he wasn’t a cold-blooded murderer. He’d taken a vow to serve and protect, and not all the pain, or rage, or hate in the world could make him anything but what he was: a man who upheld the law.
