A/N: This one’s a triple drabble.
Most of JJ’s time at the police academy was spent longing for a kind word or a smile from the object of his desires. He’d been completely smitten with senior cadet Dee Laytner since their disastrous first meeting, to the extent that just spotting him in the distance was almost enough to make his day.
Almost, but not quite; JJ would go to any lengths to get closer to the other man in order to gaze dreamily at him while basking in his presence, and as for touching him… Suffice to say JJ was perfectly willing to throw himself bodily at Dee, unashamedly pawing at that perfect body. If Dee seemed less than enthusiastic about such open displays of affection, well, JJ just shrugged the raven-haired love god’s moodiness off as the result of stress. Nobody ever claimed training to become a police officer would be easy.
The day Dee graduated filled JJ with mixed emotions. He was proud of Dee, of course he was, and naturally he was there to cheer as Dee took the oath, preparing to go out into the world and protect the public. At the same time, he was devastated because Dee was leaving; they wouldn’t see each other again until JJ himself graduated and was assigned to a precinct. Would Dee come to his graduation too? JJ could only hope he would, but it would obviously depend on whether Officer Laytner could get time off from work.
With Dee gone, JJ threw himself into his studies even harder than before. Dee had graduated near the top of his class so he would expect no less of JJ. He couldn’t let the man of his dreams down.
But until they met again, which JJ knew they would, he’d have to content himself with his dreams.
