A/N: This one’s a drabble and a half, 150 words.
Dee shakes his head in amused exasperation. Ryo Maclean, patron saint of lost causes. You’d think at his age, and being a detective to boot, he’d have more sense, but he’s a sucker for sob stories. First he takes in that drug dealer’s orphaned brat, and now he’s being all sympathetic with this kid.
The girl’s a crook. Dee wouldn’t trust her as far as he could throw her; he has more sense when it comes to street kids. Just the day before, she’d picked Ryo’s pocket and if Dee hadn’t been on the ball, his partner would’ve lost his wallet, yet despite that, Ryo’s willing to open up his home to her, protect her from the trouble her light-fingered habits have gotten her into. All she needed to do was shed a few crocodile tears.
On second thoughts, Dee sighs, maybe it’s his new partner who’s the lost cause.
