A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Checking his work schedule for the coming week, Dee groaned. “I don’t believe this!”
“What’s up?” Ryo asked sounding concerned.
“That rotten old badger’s got us workin’ different shifts most of the week! That’s so not fair!”
“We’re short-handed at the moment what with Ted and Marty being needed in court for the Bryson case,” Ryo reminded him. “You know as well as I do that the squad’s two new children aren’t ready to work a shift without the supervision of a more experienced detective.”
“I know; doesn’t mean I have to like it!”
“Besides, it’s not like we won’t see each other,” Ryo added, which was a good point; they might not see each other at work for the next few days, except in passing at shift change, but they did live together.
“Still sucks; you’ll be gettin’ up as I’m goin’ to bed. I hate sleepin’ alone.”
Ryo laughed and shook his head. “It’s for one week, Dee; I’m sure we can both survive that.”
“Assuming the Chief doesn’t make it permanent.”
“He wouldn’t; we work too well together,” Ryo said firmly. “You don’t break up a winning team.”
“I suppose.” Dee only hoped his partner was right.
