________________________________________________


Straight from the horse's mouth (1/4)


“Sherlock! Look at you, all bloody and bruised. What happened?”

“I'm fine, Mrs Hudson.”

“You are clearly not fine, young man. Get in here and sit down while I get you a wet cloth and a cup of tea.”

“John will be perfectly able to do those things.”

“John is not here at the moment. You’ll have to make do with me.”

“Where did he go?”

“How would I know? You boys never tell me where you're off to. Although John is much more reliable in that regard. Now where was I?”

“You were going to bring me a cup of tea.”

“Oh, yes. Just this once though, because you're hurt. I'm not your...”

“...housekeeper. Yes, I know.”

“Oh.”

Mrs Hudson busied herself making tea and then prepared a wet towel so that Sherlock could clean himself up. She looked at him with big worried eyes.

“Look at the state you're in.”

“It's nothing, Mrs Hudson.”

“But what happened?”

“I got run over by a bicycle messenger who went too fast.”

“You should have called the police.”

“What for? I work with them every day, I know what an incompetent lot they are.”

With that he finished his tea and left.

Mrs Hudson never found out the truth about why Sherlock was limping and why his left arm was bloody.

I am very glad this is a four part series except not really because I don't want Sherlock to be hurt but if Sherlock is going to be hurt at least if it's a four part series I'm going to find out why soon enough I hope.

This run-on sentence brought to you by my need to know now what happened to Sherlock.

I'll be over here, sitting quietly (not) and patiently (not) and also non-pressurey (hurry!). Thank you.

What is this? What are you doing? What were you thinking leaving us with that cliffhanger? Plain and simple: What?

ARGH! No fair! This is not what you do! This is what *I* do!

*does not like being on the business-end of a cliffhanger*

Lovely dialogue, though!!!

The last sentence is pretty angsty, but I can't help but laugh hard on it: “What for? I work with them every day, I know what an incompetent lot they are.”

*can't wait next part* *so runs and reads it ;)*
