Rise and Shine

Work Text:

“Rise and shine, little Davey! Coffee’s almost ready.”

“Rise and shine for what? It’s Sunday! You’re not really gonna make me get up early on a Sunday, are you?”

“Well, why not? It’s a beautiful day today. Just look outside -- the sun is shining, the birds are singing—“

“And my pillow is as soft as a cloud, so excuse me if I prefer to go back to sleep right now. You can enjoy the great outdoors this morning by yourself, Jeremiah Johnson.”

<Hutch throws an object at Starsky’s head and misses by mere inches>

“What the?!” <Starsky holds up the object and inspects it> “A purple egg?”

“Relax, dummy, it’s hardboiled.”

“Guess I better get up before you pour hot coffee on me next.”

<Starsky follows Hutch into the kitchen and spies two surprises on the kitchen table>

“The Easter bunny was here last night. But if you’re not interested, Starsk, I can bring your basket over to Kiko and Molly’s later.”

“And what about your basket?”

“Well, I’ll bring that over, too, of course.”

“Lemme see what’s in there.” <Starsky carefully inspects the contents of his basket> “Colored eggs, marshmallow peeps, jelly beans, chocolate bunny…you did all this, Hutch?”

“Who me? Do I seem like the kind of guy who would bring all this tooth-rotting candy into my house? I guess the Easter bunny took pity on you.”

“Then why’d he bring you a basket?”

“’So that you could have twice as much candy to eat, I suppose. And anyway, it’s not all junk. Have an egg with your coffee.”

“Don’t mind if I do. I see there’s one for each color of the rainbow. So I guess that means I’ll be tastin’ the rainbow, then?”

“I thought that was what we did last night in bed?”

“That too. Hey, where ya goin’?”

“Just getting the other two baskets. The Easter bunny left them on the coffee table. I figured we’d bring these over to Kiko and Molly later.”

“Sounds like a plan. But hey, before we go, can you taste my rainbow?”

“Sure thing, partner.” <Hutch leans over and kisses Starsky> “But you sure you don’t want to go back to sleep instead?”

“Not a chance, Blondie <Starsky takes Hutch’s hand and presses it against his bulging groin> as it seems I have risen. And if you want me to shine, you’re gonna hafta polish my knob.”
