A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Arriving home at gone one in the morning after working second shift, Ryo naturally expected Dee to already be in bed, so it was a surprise to see him sitting on the sofa, TV on, watching a late-night horror movie.
Glancing at the screen as he pulled off his shoes and hung up his coat, Ryo realised the movie was one of his favourites, so he figured he might as well join his partner and watch it before going to bed. He’d just say hi to Dee and then fix himself a snack.
Padding across the room in his socked feet, he slid his hands over his lover’s shoulders, intending to lean around and plant a kiss on his cheek, only to have Dee jump about a foot in the air with a loud yell. The top of Dee’s head connected with Ryo’s nose and he stumbled backwards as Dee scrambled to his feet and spun around.
“Ryo? Dammit, are you tryin’ to scare the livin’ daylights outta me? Don’t sneak up on me when I’m watchin’ scary movies!”
“I didn’t.” Ryo’s voice was muffled behind his hands as he clutched at his abused nose. “I was only saying hello.”
