A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Ryo hadn’t been worried when Commissioner Rose had requested his assistance on a case. After all, the commissioner was his boss. Dee hadn’t been happy, but then Dee wasn’t good at sharing, and for some unaccountable reason, seemed to have taken a particular dislike to Rose from the moment they met.
Everything had been going smoothly until Ryo and Rose had encountered Dee leaving a hotel with Agent Spacey hanging all over him, and when she’d kissed Dee right in front of them… Ryo wasn’t jealous, of course not, but that was appallingly unprofessional behaviour when they were supposed to be working.
“Worried?” the Commissioner asked. He meant about Dee.
“Why would I be?”
He wasn’t expecting what happened next, but when Rose leaned it to kiss him, Ryo quickly blocked him. He was rather proud of the way he’d so neatly avoided his boss’s unwelcome advances, but Rose wasn’t so easily put off and employed underhand tactics to steal a kiss anyway.
Ryo didn’t even think, just reacted automatically, punching Rose square in the jaw. Oops, awkward situation. He hoped Rose wouldn’t press charges against him for striking a superior officer. Still, he doubted Rose would try that again.
