Previous 221b: Something fundamental

Today's prompt: Coach B

Off the rails

He opened his eyes and wondered what might have disturbed his concentration. It took him a few seconds to realise that the sound of furious typing next to him had stopped.

He turned his head to look at Sherlock. Sherlock who was grinning like a madman.

"You solved the case then?"

"No." Sherlock said without even looking at him.

"Then what?"

"Thinking about seat numbers."

"Seat numbers?" Lestrade glanced at the seat to his right. 70. He shrugged.
Sherlock, still grinning, started typing again.

Lestrade decided that the grin disturbed him enough to take action. He got up and wandered over to John, who was sitting a couple of rows ahead because the train had been almost full when they boarded.

The seat opposite John was empty for the moment so Lestrade dropped into it.
"All right?"

"Sherlock keeps grinning at me and I have to be honest, it is vaguely terrifying."

"Well, he... hang on, he just texted me."

John lifted his mobile and started reading. Lestrade noticed an elderly woman sitting behind John reading over his shoulder. Suddenly she blushed and quietly said "Oh my."

Lestrade turned his gaze to John. John who was now also grinning like a madman.

"Yeah, you know what? I don't even want to know. If you need me, I'll be in coach B."

Next 221b: Watch your tongue

AN: If you feel confused, read it again. I was told that helps. ;) If not, think about what seat would be next to the one Lestrade mentions :D

Hello everyone :)
I recently was on a train with Atlin and Verity. I was bored. Atlin gave me a prompt. There you go. *haha*
I love writing. I don't really know why I stopped. No, that's not true. I was exhausted after writing and posting almost every day for one and a half year. Still, it took me way too long to start again!
Anyway. This is me, starting again. [Not every day though. Sorry.] Atlin, darling, get your prompt sheet ready!

And yes, this is still the same verse as all the 221Bs from the challenge respectively 'An almost gravitanional pull'.

Verity had to read it more than once to get it. I had to read it more than once to get it. GETTING IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT.

Now, as I fling weights about, I shall visualise what they get up to though *how* they'd do *that* I just can't quite see...

You're back you're back you're back!

Well, I read it more than once too and I still don't get why the fact that Lestrade is sitting in the seat 71 should be funny. But maybe I go about it the wrong way round. (What?)

*joins Atlin in the welcome-back-Anarion squad*

P.S. This 221B so demands a sequel! ;-)

P.P.S. You forgot the "1" in "221B", in the title! You're too modest. :D

Wheeee! I'm late to the party, sorry. I hope there are still some cheese straws left.

Lovely to see you writing again, sweetie! Welcome home.

Of course I forget to check LJ for a few days and you start to write again!! Does that mean that I should leave for good? Imagine all the things you could write!
Hehehe, welcome home, babe. It's good to open my mailbox and see THREE 221bs waiting for me. And yes, I got it the second time around and snorted.
