I Think I Love You - Chapter 10John sat on the couch and watched telly. Sherlock observed him from his spot. He wasn't exactly sure what was going on was John sad because his relationship with Sarah was over, or was he upset about hurting her feelings? Was he upset at all?
Sherlock took a step forward. "John," he started reluctantly.
"Are you okay?"
The words hung in the air for too long. Sherlock wished he hadn't said it, and John was surprised Sherlock had said it.
"I'm okay." John finally replied. "I'm just a bit confused about things." What am I doing? Why am I talking to Sherlock about this?
"What things?" Sherlock asked. He was a bit concerned now. "John, tell me."
"I'm sorry, I shouldn't have said anything."
"Well you did, so finish it."
John looked at Sherlock, surprised. "Since when do you have interest in what people think and feel? This isn't like you."
"I have interest when it's you, John."
"Well that's nice to know Sherlock; thank you. It's just " Jo
(7) A Study in Skyrim [Sherlock/Skyrim Crossover]Sherlock and John ran towards the river.
"I suppose they found the guard out cold." John panted.
"We should have hidden it." Sherlock said. "It was a stupid mistake."
"Sorry." John exhaled.
They'd just met the river, and were now running alongside it.
"It's not your fault. At least we got out of town before they noticed; otherwise I don't think we'd have any hope." Sherlock said while slowing his pace. "We should be safe to move at a brisk walk. News of our escape wouldn't have reached Riverwood yet."
They kept walking, and John spotted a stone bridge, and behind it, the small village of Riverwood. They crossed the bridge when they got to it, and Sherlock took lead. They entered a building; it was a general goods store. There was the ring of a bell when Sherlock pushed the door open, and their gaze was met by that of the shopkeeper.
"I was just about to close up." the Dark Elf spoke in rough voice.
"Please, we won't be long; we just want to buy some food." Sherlock said in the kindest
(6) A Study in Skyrim [Sherlock/Skyrim Crossover]Sherlock observed his surroundings, and picked up an old torch stick. With the other hand, he ripped the bottom of his shirt, and wrapped the fabric around the end of the stick. John saw what Sherlock was doing.
"How are you going to light it?"
"Like this," Sherlock smirked.
He muttered a strange word and the fabric set alight, causing the surrounding walls to glow. Sherlock began striding through the tunnel, while John trailed behind.
"Is that one of your Dragonborn powers?"
"Yes. They do come in very useful at the best of times."
The came to an open area, with more tunnels leading off from it. There were stone steps on the left side, which led up to a large tunnel.
"This way." Sherlock led the way up the steps, and through the wet tunnel, Sherlock's head nearly scraping on the top.
They came to a small room, where Sherlock halted and passed the torch to John.
"Here's the trapdoor." Sherlock stretched his arms up and slid the bolt on the door to the right. "I'll give you a leg-up. O
I Think I Love You - Chapter 9John was awake bright and early the next morning. He couldn't sleep while thinking about what he had planned for the day ahead. The truth was, he didn't feel for Sarah anymore. He didn't look forward to seeing her, he didn't feel like visiting her anymore. In fact, after the previous day's escapade, he was quite pissed off with her. John knew she didn't like Sherlock one bit, and that wasn't acceptable in John's eyes.
He finished reading the paper, and folded it before placing it on the coffee table. He pulled on his coat and walked into the hall. He heard a shuffle from Sherlock's room. John quickened his pace and exited the flat. He didn't want to explain what was going to happen. He would rather tell him when he got back. He called for a cab and waited.
Sherlock looked at the clock in his room. It had just turned eight o'clock. He rose out of bed slowly and ran his hands through his hair, before yanking his bedroom door open and stepping into the living room. He saw the day's pape
(5) A Study in Skyrim [Sherlock/Skyrim Crossover]The next few days went by, and the nights with Sherlock's beast form were terrible, but John had tried to talk to the wolf-Sherlock to calm him down. It did work, but if another prisoner shouted at him, he would become vicious again.
During the day, the two men would discuss their escape.
"It will be the day after the cycle ends. When night falls, I act as if I am about to transform. The guard will leave quickly to get back up. I will use this," Sherlock held up a lockpick.
"Where did you get that?" John asked in amazement.
"I snatched it once when I went out for a job. They were bringing in one of those Thieves Guild lot. That's what I meant when you first came in, when I said I could escape if I wanted. I just had no reason to. So I use the lockpick to pick my lock, then I give it to you so you can pick yours open, while u get the grate in the floor open." Sherlock gestured to the iron grate in the middle of the dungeon floor, near the guard's watch. "We jump down there, and we go th
I Think I Love You - Chapter 8Sherlock awoke from the sound of loud knocking. He groaned at the pain in his head. Why did he have to get drunk? Stupid experiment
He pulled on his robe and thumped down the stairs clumsily, wrenching the door open when he got to bottom.
"Hello," Sarah said nervously.
"You! What are you doing here?" Sherlock asked in a lazy drawl.
"I came to see if John was alright."
"Of course he's alright. Why wouldn't he be? Hasn't he contacted you for five minutes?"
Sarah rolled her eyes and pushed past the tall man.
"Hey, what do you think you're doing?" Sherlock called.
"Trust me, I don't want me to be here either." Sarah said as she climbed the staircase.
"What's going on?" Sherlock heard John call from his bedroom.
"Intruder! There's an intruder in the house! Get your gun, John!" Sherlock shouted, and received a glare from Sarah. He grinned back at her slyly.
John pushed through the door, his gun in his hand, and he pointed it at the first person he saw.
"What the HELL, John?!" Sarah shr
I Think I Love You - Chapter 7"Should I call cab?" John asked as he was getting ready.
"I thought we could walk, since it's only a few streets away." Sherlock said while tying his blue scarf around his neck.
"Where are we going exactly?" John asked, appearing in the living room.
"A new place I found. Called 'Crusaders', it's four star, not too expensive, but not too shabby. I thought we should try it."
"Alright, excellent. Just give me a few minutes and we can go." John said as he left the room again.
Sherlock locked the door behind them as they stepped out onto the street. Sherlock led the way briskly, his coat swaying, as John tried to keep up.
"A bit excited, are we?" John panted as he arrived at Sherlock's side.
"A bit, yes. I'm quite hungry too."
John grinned. Now that he thought about it, so was he.
A few moments later, they arrived out front of the restaurant. They proceeded inside to be met by a hostess.
"A table for two under 'Holmes'." Sherlock spoke to her.
"Follow me," she smiled at the couple in fr
I Think I Love You - Chapter 6Sherlock received a phone call at about half past seven in the morning. It was Lestrade, informing him about an 'unusual case' which he wanted Sherlock to check out.
"John!" Sherlock called as speed walked into the living room while pulling on hi gloves.
"What?" John shouted from the kitchen.
"Case. Let's go!"
"Alright, hang on a minute." John jogged out of the kitchen and into his room, coming out shortly after with his black coat on.
Sherlock and John arrived at the scene, ducking under the crime scene tape to be met by Detective Inspector Lestrade.
"Follow me," he said, and he led them into the house and upstairs into the master bedroom.
As soon as they were through the doorway, Sherlock pushed in front of the others. Floating above the bed, was the body. It was suspended from the rafters with tangled rope, so it hung about a metre above the bed.
"His wife is the one who found him. She woke up early this morning and got quite a shock when she saw her husband hanging above her."
