Theme: morning person
It didn’t make any sense that Shizuo was a morning person, Izaya thought. Everything about him indicated he wouldn’t be, that he’d sleep until two pm and still wake up groggy and tired.
Izaya loathed the day that Shizuo would realize despite all presumptions, Orihara Izaya was not a morning person. He would wake up early only for work but until he had his coffee, he would be irritable. On the worst days, he would walk into the wall a few times as he tried to leave the bedroom.
The morning that the truth was revealed, Izaya tried to wake up before Shizuo and slip out of bed, wake up before the blond could tell. But a single movement awoke the blond and going back to sleep would seem suspicious, so he had no choice but to act as normally as he could.
Shizuo was stretching when Izaya stood up, reaching over and pulling on a pair of boxers laying on the ground. He muttered something about the shower under his breath and could see Shizuo sitting up from the corner of his eye, already looking as alert as Izaya would be in a few hours.
Izaya stopped to rub his forehead from where he had walked into a half open door and knew that Shizuo was staring at him.
"You’re not a—?"
"I didn’t expect—"
Izaya turned around.
"Shut up or I will slice you apart."
From then on, Shizuo decided it was best to not be a morning person at Izaya’s.
