A Study In Annoyance

Scarlet is a famous crime scene investigator but one case stumps her and she is forced to ask for help from a self-absorbed ball of sass named Sherlock Holmes.


1. Prologue

A body lay covered in blood in the long alleyway and I grimace at the sight. I never said my job was easy. Being a crime scene investigator I saw things I didn't particularly want to see on a daily basis. I walked over to the body and knelt down examining it to find out the exact cause of death. Lestrade came up behind me and bent over the body "Find anything interesting." He asks and I jump slightly. "Jesus Christ you scared me! Don't sneak up on me like that!"

"Sorry Scarlet." He says and I nod at him and look back down at the body. "Cause of death is multiple stab wounds to the chest and abdomen. Victim appears to be male." He nodded and I looked closer. "There's a marking on the right side of his neck. Looks like a symbol of some kind. Maybe whoever killed him branded him. Doesn't look familiar." I said.

He looked at me in shock "You've never seen this before?"

"No sorry I won't be much help on this." I said.

"It's alright. I still want you on this case. I'm going to bring someone else in to help you though." He says.

"Oh really? Who?" I ask slightly amused.

"His name is Sherlock Holmes."
