Previous 221b: Off the rails

Today's prompt:
_________________________________________________________________


Watch your tongue


Sherlock left the room and barely reined in the desire to slam the door. Mostly because it would have broken Lestrade’s nose.

Lestrade followed him out and mumbled, “Nothing to gain.” Sherlock silently agreed but ignored him.

Not for the first time he wished John had come with him. He was getting nowhere and Lestrade was no help at all.

****

The next day he slammed the door shut with a bang. Thankfully Lestrade was walking in front of him this time.

To his confusion he still said, “I’m in pain.” Sherlock ignored him.

Instead he wondered what John might be doing. Did he miss Sherlock? Not that Sherlock missed John. He'd just appreciate his professional opinion regarding the case.

****

The day after there was no door that he could slam. He vented his frustration by talking to Lestrade.

“These people are useless. I’ve tried French, Dutch and even German. They just sit there and stare at me stupidly.”

Lestrade shook his head.

“This was in vain.”

“I agree.”

“You agree? To what?”

“That this was in vain.”

Lestrade looked very confused for a second. Then he glared.

“Do you listen to me at all?”

“Not really.”

“I said ‘We are in Spain.’ In fact I have said it several times over the last few days. We are not in Belgium!”






Next 221b: There is no pleasure without pain


------------------
AN: This one is for my fabulous friend Stacey, who once told us that she was in Salzburg but the Austrians didn't understand what she said because she used the wrong language and spoke French. I said that that would make a great 221B, wrote it and promptly forgot about it. *ahem* [livejournal.com profile] chocolamousse screamed at me gently reminded me about it recently.

Stacey Love it

You clever little devil. I love it. I have to say I am really enjoying these darling. Its like the 12 days of Christmas in 221b's.

On the First day of Christmas my true love gave to me,
Sherlock on a train journey.
On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Two different languages
and a Sherlock on a train journey.........

Bloody marvellous.

I didn't scream at all, I murmured softly to your ear. And it was a good idea, I think.

P.S. I saw the "sophisticated title is sophisticated" tag, so I looked at the title again. Now I get it. :D

The title is brilliant!

And it's so Sherlock that he doesn't even pay attention to what country he's in, especially when John's not there to tell him!

I was very pleased when I came up with the title. *amused by own genius*

England is the only important country anyway ;)

*snorts again* Ok, I won't say that this has happened to me, and if it ever happened it would have been because of that damn jetlag!!
