A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
It’s a long way back to New York from L.A. but that’s not going to keep Bikky from getting home in time for Thanksgiving. More than anything he wants to be with his family for Turkey Day, and that’s not just because Ryo always puts on such a great spread.
He misses his foster father, and he misses his best girl; Carol is at college in New York, but they’re making the long distance relationship work. It’ll be good to see her in person instead of just on a computer screen; summer break feels like forever ago.
He won’t admit it to anyone, but he’s missed Dee too. He’s hoping to pick the perv’s brains on how to deal with the girls who keep hitting on him; telling them he already has a girlfriend doesn’t seem to be getting through.
The plane is late, and finding a taxi is a nightmare; seems everyone else wants to get home too, but at last he’s standing outside Dee and Ryo’s building. Ignoring the elevator, he takes the stairs and lets himself in.
“Surprise!” he shouts, closing the door behind him.
The delighted smile on Ryo’s face is well worth the gruelling trip.
