Do Not Open
 

 
Don’t look in the fridge!” Sherlock yells from the sitting-room.
 
“Didn’t know you were back,” John grumbles.
 
He’d only taken the extra shift last night because Sherlock was away. It’s 6 o'clock and he’s exhausted. He wants tea. Now.
 
Fuck knows what’s in the fridge this time. Probably not a severed head, because Sherlock doesn’t usually repeat himself.
 
Today of all days he would really like a nice cup of tea and then bed. Not a stand-up row with the world’s only consulting detective. But it looks as if that wish isn’t going to be granted either.
 
John opens the fridge door, bracing himself. No body parts on view. They’re probably just lurking in that big white box though. Bloody Sherlock.
 
The milk’s at the back of the fridge so he has to pull the box out.
 
“I said don’t!”
 
John just registers that Sherlock’s naked and aroused; then the box pops open, startling him so much he nearly drops it.
 
“Spoiled my surprise,” Sherlock complains. “Where were you?”
 
“Hospital. Night shift,” John says.  “Is that chocolate fudge cake?”
 
“The cake's for later, really,” Sherlock says with an insinuating expression, “but you might want to try some of the icing now.”
 
“You remembered,” John says.
 
“Idiot,” says Sherlock, pulling him in close for a kiss. “Of course I did. Happy birthday.”

That was so sweet!
And trust Sherlock to try and spoil it and get straight to the point,

John just registers that Sherlock’s naked and aroused

poor John takes extra precautions everywhere now.

well I think that was supposed to be the other part of the surprise...

I doubt John is complaining about it. distracted by cake, obviously.

I shouldn't have gone to bed so early...

Was just wondering whether Sherlock was naked because he'd made a mess of his suit while cooking and had to strip off, but no, the cake's in a box and John doesn't notice anything unusual in the rest of the kitchen, so he bought it. Cheat!

Don't suppose John minds, though...

I shouldn't have been posting in the middle of the night! *groans*

no, I don't suppose John minds either. mind on other things, probably. and a shop-bought cake is almost certainly safer to eat than anything cooked by Sherlock...

I think I just melted into a puddle of goo. Happy goo, mind you.

Sherlock being sweet is so adorable! I bet he made John forget all about sleep *sighs*

thank you! melting seems suitable for birthdays (especially with chocolate fudge icing).

yes, I expect he did! I hope John at least got a cup of tea, though.

D'awww! Bless. Also, how lovely for John...coming home to a naked Sherlock... ^_^

thank you! yes, we hope he will be properly appreciative, even if he seems at first to be rather more interested in the cake...

AWWWWW!

(I was so distracted by the chocolate fudge cake that I almost missed this: "Sherlock’s naked and aroused..." >.< How could that happen?)

thank youuu!!

John seems to be more focused on the cake than on Sherlock's condition at that point in the story, so it's probably his fault...

Re: It is good
thank you very much! I am glad you enjoyed the story. I have written some other stories about them but this one was written for a birthday so it had to have cake in it!

I'm wondering what Sherlock was doing before John got home. hmm

I think he was waiting to ambush John, though I don't know how long he'd been in that state! *grins*
