3. And Now? Warning- Johnlock
*WARNING* This chapter is a Johnlock (Sherlock/John) chapter, for those out there who ship it. It's not really about the case, so there's no need to read it if you don't like Johnlock. However if you do- I heartily congratulate you on your choice of ship, and feel free to read on!
'I've been thinking.'
John jerked out of a doze, gazing bemusedly at his brown-haired companion.
'John. John. I've been thinking.'
John twitched his nose. Sherlock, thinking? Imagine that. ''Bout what?'
'About, not 'bout. But if you really want to know-'
'I really didn't.'
'You do now. I've been thinking about that boy.'
Sherlock flopped down on the arm of the chair that John was slumped in with a dramatic sigh.
'All that pain he went through- being kicked out of his own home, being strangled...all because of who he loved. And I've been thinking. Would you hate me if you knew who I loved?'
John had a mental picture of Mrs Hudson, but banished it immediately. 'You know I wouldn't hate you.'
'Are you sure?'
John's mental Mrs Hudson was now jumping up and down and waving a large purple feather.
'Of course not. Who is i- ah.'
There was nothing like a kiss to end a case, in John's opinion. Well- almost nothing.
*Aaand you can draw your own conclusion from that. (Bwa ha ha...)*
