Dee lets himself into Ryo’s apartment with the key he’s been given and calls out to his lover, “Hey, babe, it’s only me.” Only silence greets him, which is instantly alarming. Ryo’s car is parked out front, and anyway, he invited Dee over tonight for dinner because Bikky is away with Carol and her aunt.
A quick search of the apartment reveals it to be empty, and Dee’s reaching for his phone, feeling a bit panicky, when he spots the post-it note stuck to the wall beneath the coat hooks.
Sorry if I’m not here when you arrive; I’m out of milk so I’ve gone to the store. Shouldn’t be long, so just make yourself at home. You always do anyway.
Smiling, Dee folds the note carefully and tucks it in his wallet, kicks off his shoes, and makes himself comfortable. No need to worry after all.
