Characters: Dee, Ryo, OMC.
Setting: After the manga.
Summary: Dee accepts the risks that go with his job, but this shouldn’t be one of them.
Written Using: The dw100 prompt ‘Wounded’.
Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Being a cop, injuries are an occupational hazard. All cops know they risk being punched, shot, or stabbed, in the course of their duties. Even being blown up isn’t beyond the realm of possibilities. That’s life, and anyone who doesn’t accept the risks has no business being a cop in the first place.
Dee’s fine with that, he’s careful, he doesn’t take unnecessary chances and he watches his partner’s back just as Ryo watches his. They do everything they can to avoid injury.
This, though, is plain ridiculous.
When you call for backup, you expect to get competent help, not a patrol car driven by a rookie. It had come tearing around the corner, and when Dee had stepped out to flag it down, instead of braking, the idiot behind the wheel had swerved towards him and driven right over his foot!
It’s only bruised, thankfully; Dee’s pride is wounded more than his foot, but that’s hardly the point. The young officer responsible isn’t safe to be out on the street; what if he’d mown down an innocent bystander? He could’ve caused far more damage than a bruised foot.
Dee’s gonna make sure he goes straight back to driving school.
