Previous 221b: Off to a flying start

Today's prompt: a damp flannel
_________________________________________________________________


That escalated quickly

Lestrade woke to someone pulling on his arm.

“Sherlock? How did you get in here? The door was locked!”

“In a manner of speaking.”

“What?”

“Never mind.” And with that Sherlock dropped into the armchair in the corner.

Silence.

Lestrade groaned. “Sherlock, what are you doing here? It’s two in the morning.”

“John is in Edinburgh.”

“Yeah...?”

“I am bored.”

“Get out!”

Lestrade dropped back into his bed and pulled the duvet over his head. He didn’t hear Sherlock leave.

***

Lestrade woke to something wet on his face.

He pulled the damp flannel off and regarded his visitor with a sigh.

“Sherlock, please tell me that you are not here again because you were bored...”

“John is ...”

“...still in Edinburgh, I know.”

“I need something to do!”

“Fine. Fine! There is a cold case file on the table in the kitchen.”

“Lestrade, were you expecting me? I am touched.”

“Get out.”

***
Lestrade woke up screaming, ice cold and wet to the skin. Next to his bed stood Sherlock, holding a bucket.

“Sherlock, goddammit! Have you lost your mind?”

“I solved the case.”

“Of course you did. It couldn’t wait until tomorrow?”

“Suspect died two years ago, there’s nothing you can do.”

“THEN WHY ARE YOU HERE?”

“I just wanted to tell you that John is back.”






Next 221b: It's the berries!

AN: The prompt was 'a damp flannel'.

Hello y'all! Back after the turn of the year. Sorry that it took me so long, but I started a new job (teaching music in primary school) and when I'm not working I am constantly tired. Probably the reason for poor Greg not getting enough sleep in this one ;)

You're back, yay!

It's a good thing John is back too because I don't dare think of what would have woken Lestrade next time. :D

Oh that's hilarious! I love the image of Sherlock running into the bedroom with a bucket of water!

Great to see you back.

The things you miss when you don't visit LJ in weeks! *hangs head in shame*
Sherlock you arsehole!! I would kill him! I hate when my kids wake me at night and I know what I'm talking about.
