Fic: ‘Tis the Season: Too early.  
Title: ‘Tis the Season: Too early.
Fandom: Hawaii Five-0 (modern)
Rating: (G)
Time Period: In December.
Summary: It's too early.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

It's been awhile since I've written like this and y'all can guess the characters involved.

And just to let folks know: I'm really not against decorations of any kind! I've just been struck by how early decorations just seem to be going up!

“Heyheyhey. What're you doing?”

“Moving this box.”

“To where?”

“To that room.”

“Why?”

The taller man looks at the shorter. He hefts the box in his arms. “Because it's too early,” he replies.

“To put up decorations?”

“Yes.”

“For a holiday later in the month?”

“That's right. It's almost a month away.”

“For a holiday later this month?”

“Yes.”

“I see.”

He stops at the door, looks back at the shorter man. “You see what?”

“Why you wouldn't put up decorations. Can I put some up at the office?”

“Our place of work?”

“Yeah. It'd give a festive air.”

“No.” He enters the room, puts the box down. “It'd be distracting.”

“Distracting?”

The taller man quickly runs his hand over the box, walks from the room. “All right. Disrespectful.”

“To whom?”

“What?”

“To whom would it be distracting or disrespectful?”

“The victims' families.”

“Ah.”

“You approve?”

“That doesn't mean you can't have them at home.”

“Do you want a beer?”

“Sure but you didn't answer.”

“Answer what?”

“What I said.”

“I did earlier.”

“When you had the box.”

“That's right.”

The taller man heads to the kitchen while the shorter sits on the sofa. “If you wanted to decorate early, I wouldn't tell.”

“Drop it would you?”

“You were far more easygoing at Halloween.”

The taller man hands over the beer.

First week of December is kind of early. Next week is just fine.

Though when I get my own place, I know I'm going to put up decoration the day after Thanksgiving - at lease on the inside. Outside, I'll wait a couple of week.

I can see the point of decorating next week but I know some stores start decorating last week of November, if not earlier.

Some folks decorate outside pretty early here, as in this week so waiting a couple weeks to decorate outside, as you say, seems sane!

Well written.

What do you agree with Steve about?

And thank you.

Too early. But then, I wouldn't have decorations or carols till the week before.
