A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
The London Underground really wasn’t that different from the New York Subway system, so Dee and Ryo took to it like ducks to water, buying passes that allowed them to travel freely on the tube, as Londoners called it, throughout their anniversary vacation.
They quickly learned the main routes, but there were maps on the walls they could consult if necessary, and anyway, their London guidebook told them which stations were closest to the places they wanted to visit. Within a couple of days, they were hopping on and off trains and switching lines as easily as if they were locals.
Almost the best part for both of them were the quaint place names: Mile End, Whitechapel, Piccadilly Circus, Shepherd’s Bush, Ravenscourt Park, Sloane Square, Knightsbridge, Neasden, Bayswater, Marble Arch, Earl’s Court, Swiss Cottage, Maida Vale… There wasn’t enough time to go everywhere.
“Next time we should come for a month,” Dee declared. “Then we could travel every line from end to end. Hey, d’you think we could arrange some kind of exchange between the NYPD and Scotland Yard? Think how cool it would be to work here!”
Ryo laughed. “You’d hate it! In London, the police don’t carry guns.”
