Summary: A peaceful evening at 221b is abruptly interrupted by an unexpected emergency: a security breach at a secret government lab. As a first responder, Sherlock Holmes is called to join the entry team to investigate the situation — and John Watson discovers the terrible truth of what lies beneath a quiet island in the Bristol Channel.
Sherlock still looked terrified, though he was trying to hide it. John had seen that same look too many times before in young men who knew that at the end of the flight, someone would be shooting at them, and the years fell away from Captain John Watson, RAMC. With his old, quick grin back in place, he said, “If we’re overthrowing the government because Mycroft’s irritated you, we will have words about this, Sherlock.”
The mindless fear in Sherlock’s eyes slipped away, replaced first by shock, and then by a desperate sort of black humour as he barked out a laugh. “If we did, I’d at least let you have the army.”
“What do I want with a bloody army? I have my hands full dealing with you.”
Morning reblog! Because oops, I launched a new story at oh-shit-a.m. for most of my readers. :)
And unless something disastrous happens, I’ll be posting a new chapter every day or two.
It’s a grand start- can’t wait for the rest!
