In The Dark - Chapter 5There was a buzz. John turned his head and pushed himself up in the bed, reaching over to his phone. There was a new message.
I was just wondering if you wanted to catch up today. You could choose the place; that's if you want to catch up. It's okay of you don't.
John stared at the message for a while. When he thought about it, Molly was probably the only person he'd really want to see. Even he knew men weren't exactly good with emotional situations. He couldn't picture how Lestrade would react if he burst into tears in his presence. John sent back a text to Molly.
Sounds great. Where do you want to meet? Do you want to have breakfast somewhere?
John inspected his message before he pressed 'Send'. He still had the habit of writing 'JW'. The thought of erasing it and writing his full name occurred, but he decided against it and sent the message.
Molly sent back a reply quickly, making the arrangements, before placing her phone back on the tabl
AsylumJohn strode through the sickeningly white halls of the asylum, being led by two tall, burly men. They came to a halt at a plain white door labelled 'Holmes, Sherlock', and unlocked it. The pushed open the door and let John walk through, the two men following him inside, closing the door and standing on either side of it.
There he was; the former detective. He was once so brilliant, and now, he sat in the corner of the white room, in an off-white straight jacket. His chest was rising and falling with each breath, and he stared into the nothingness absently. John approached Sherlock cautiously, worried about what might happen. This was his first visit. He was scared to see Sherlock; scared that he'd be too different. He wanted to remember his best friend for what he was; when he was sane. But then, he didn't want him to be alone.
He crouched down in front of Sherlock, and looked into his eyes. After a few moments, the former detective looked up, and met John's gaze. Those brilliant eyes
In The Dark - Chapter 4"John, was that really necessary?" Mrs Hudson closed the front door behind them.
"Yes, it was! This is his fault! He gave all that information to Moriarty so that he knew exactly how to destroy Sherlock!"
"I think we'd best go up and have some tea." Mrs Hudson suggested.
"Contrary to popular belief, Mrs Hudson, tea does not solve everything!"
"Maybe so John, but you should have some anyway.
John had calmed down a bit after he sat down with Mrs Hudson, and they talked about Molly.
"I think you should take her up on her offer." Mrs Hudson said.
"I don't need help."
"You may think that isolating yourself is the best thing to do, but it really isn't, John. You need company and friends. Otherwise you'll drown in your own thoughts."
"So you know what I need do you? You just know how I'm feeling now?"
"You're not the only one who's lost someone, you know." Mrs Hudson spoke softly.
Now John felt stupid. Of course, she'd lived longer than him, of course in that time someone she loved would ha
