"Neighborhood Threat" Sherlock drabble Sherlock, Lestrade Rating PG Gen-fic

Title: Neighborhood Threat
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Characters: Lestrade, Sherlock (Gen-fic)
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 100
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011 Day 70. Prompt from holmes100: Lust. Most excellent and speedy beta by filthgoblin. Comments and concrit welcome.
WARNINGS: Please read at your own risk. Possible trigger.
Summary: A different kind of case.

Sherlock has seen resentment and desperation on Lestrade’s face when asking for assistance, but but this time there’s something else: doubt.

“Not sure this one’s up really your alley, Holmes.”

“But there is a crime? One you apparently can’t solve without me.”

Sherlock knows he could be nicer, but sees no need.

“Five to date, and the profiler says there’ll be more.”

“And what leads you to think this case is beyond my skills?”

Lestrade shrugs.

“Maybe this is a criminal you can’t relate to.”

“Come now, Lestrade! I’ve helped you catch murderers, thieves, blackmailers, forgers….”

“But never a rapist.”
