Nancy Holmes

*Part of Sherlock Competition* Kathleen Holmes. Younger (19 year old) sister of Sherlock and Mycroft. Nicknamed herself 'Nancy' (after fictional character Nancy Drew) due to her love of solving crime. But what will happen when she joins Sherlock and John Watson on a case?


6. Chapter 6

I woke up with a terrible headache. When I’d gained full consciousness, I found myself laid out on the sofa in Mrs Hudson’s living room. John and Mrs Hudson were sitting beside me.


“W-where’s Sherlock?” I asked weakly. “Upstairs in his ‘mind palace’ working on another case,” John smiled “How are you feeling?”

“Weak but I’m OK now.” I replied. “I’m going to put on some tea.” Mrs Hudson said with a broad grin. I turned to John “Why aren’t in Hospital? I lost loads of blood.”


“Because I was around,” John explained, “I’m a fully trained doctor.”

“Oh, so it’s Dr. John H. Watson, is it?” I joked examining my bandaged wrists. Later, once I could stand up, I went upstairs to see my brother. “Get out, I need to go to my mind palace.” Sherlock boomed. Then he realised it was me. I smiled “Thank you, for saving me back there.”


He wasn’t listening to me but I continued anyway. “You know, I came to you because I looked up to you and I still do now. Mycroft wasn’t really a good role model for me. But you…you’re just amazing. You’re my favourite sibling and you always will be. I love you because you’re weird and crazy and that you’re the reason why I exist.”


That end part was true. Sherlock was bored of Mycroft being all perfect and successful so he asked Mum and Dad if he could have a sister instead. And here I am. Kathleen Lucinda ‘Nancy’ Holmes, sister to Mycroft and Sherlock Homes. And I wouldn’t change that for the world.
