Dee still remembered the night clearly. He and Ryo had only been working together for a few months, and it had been their first stakeout; bored stiff, after a while they’d got to talking about all the places they’d like to visit someday.
Ryo sometimes accused Dee of not listening to him, but he was wrong; Dee not only listened, he remembered, and although it had taken some saving up, now he was going to prove it.
“Pack your bags, babe, we’re goin’ on vacation for our anniversary!”
“Vacation? But what about work?”
“I cleared it with the chief months ago, didn’t tell ya ‘cause I wanted it to be a surprise. Everything’s arranged and paid for and we’re flyin’ out tonight.” Dee was grinning like a madman, and he handed Ryo the airline tickets with a flourish.
Excitement started to take hold of him, and Ryo fumbled with the tickets, opening the booklet to see where Dee was taking him. His eyes went wide and his face lit up. “London? I’ve always wanted to go there!” On their previous visit to England, they’d gone nowhere near the capital, flying into Manchester airport instead because it was closest to their holiday destination.
“I know, I remember you telling me.”
Ryo frowned. “I did? When?”
“Five years ago, on our first stakeout.”
“And you remembered after all this time?”
“Baby, I remember everything that matters to you. Now go get packed, we have two weeks of sightseeing ahead of us.”
Before going to do as he was instructed, Ryo pulled Dee close and kissed him. “Thank you, this is the most amazing anniversary gift. But I don’t have anything anywhere near as good for you.”
“You don’t have to give me anything, I have you, and you’re all I’ll ever need.”
