A short vignette, the first of three, to fulfill the Beginnings, Middles, and Ends prompts for sherlock100.  Fits into Operating System universe, as usual.  Enjoy!



John Hates Mornings, Part 1

 “Mrs. Hudson has the lease for you to sign.  She should be in her flat all day.”

John put his cup of coffee on the counter, and stifled a yawn.  He couldn’t have had more than three hours of sleep.

“Make sure you wash those sheets before you give them back to me.  Use a detergent that is free of dyes or scents.”

“Hmm?  Oh… yes, yes…”

“You can put food in the left crisper drawer.”

“Thanks.”

“The right is for experiments.”

“Okay…” 

John nearly tripped when Sherlock swooped past him and dashed down the stairs.  He stood in the silent kitchen for a few seconds and wished he’d thought to make a cup of coffee.  Then he went upstairs to get his phone and wallet.  Now that rent was sorted, he could afford a cup from Starbucks without feeling too much guilt.  He’d buy one before he picked up the rest of his things. 

He was just starting to pull the sheets off his bed when he stood up.

“Hang on!  You took my coffee!”

Ha! That was great. Had to read it a couple of times before I got it. Apparently Sherlock took my coffee too. :-D

^^ I was wondering where the coffee had gone... You capture the slowness of the mind in the morning very well! :)

Can't help it; I envisioned Jack Sparrow's "Why is the rum gone?!" Poor John.

Haha! John, just as disappointed, and perhaps just as confused...

(Now I have that stuck in my head as well... :-P )

I can see him doing that.

It is funny how you mention unscented detergents as that is my head canon too. :)
