Day 74. HAPPY BIRTHDAY filthgoblin! Prompt: Sherlock/Moriarty: C'mon baby, I'm tired of talking. Beta'd by hllangel. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: John takes issue with Sherlock's new lodger.
“You should charge him rent,” John remarks, breaking the silence in which Sherlock has been brooding for over an hour.
“What’s that?” Sherlock’s disorientation confirms John’s suspicions.
“Moriarity. If he’s going to live inside your head, he should pay his fair share. We’re out of Marmite again.”
It’s meant as a joke, but no laughter is forthcoming.
“What kind of a man could plan and execute such exquisitely evil crimes?”
“An evil one?”
Without another word, Sherlock grabs his coat and swoops out the door, leaving John to sigh into the empty room.
“I hope you’ll be very happy together.”
