Thank you. Please, take care of him. Watch after him SH
Oh, I know. I'll water him twice a week Molly
Don't, Molly. Don't try to joke SH
Sorry - Molly
How is he? SH
Depressed. He misses you Molly
I knew he would. SH
How about you? How are you? Molly
Bored. And terrified by food. That bigos thing looks strange SH
Oh! I heard it's good! Fetch me some? Molly
How? I won't be in London for... I don't know how long SH.
Here, have a picture of bigos SH
You're right. It looks strange Molly
He got himself a puppy Molly
Oh God. It's worse than I thought SH
Yup. It's a bulldog. Gladstone! It's drooling everywhere and it's rather lazy Molly
He should have gotten himself a Labrador. At least he didn't call him Sherlock SH
He was thinking about it. I told him it was stupid Molly
Thank you SH
He has a girlfriend Molly
Her name is Mary. She's nice. He looks happy. He's still sad, inside. I saw him yesterday, he cried a little Molly
Hug him for me, please? SH
I'm doing it anyway Molly
They're getting married. John and Mary Molly
Do you even care? Molly
How are you? Molly
The wedding was today Molly
He would really need you right now Molly
Why? He has a wife now SH
She was shot when they left the church Molly
Sherlock? Did you get my text? Mary was shot Molly
I got it, all right? SH
Oh, okay. Sorry. He's sad, he cried on my arm. He's sleeping here tonight Molly
Take good care of him, will you? SH
That's what I've been doing for the past three years, right? Molly
Don't let him do anything stupid SH
I won't. He just said me she was pregnant. He's devastated Molly
Hug him from me SH
How are you? SH
Wow, that's new. You never asked Molly
Why are you asking anyway? Molly
I'm just being curious SH
Um. Fine. I met with John yesterday. He's in bad shape so I let him sleep on my couch. Again. I think he likes it here, since I still believe in you and I don't hide it Molly
Of course there is also that cute bloke with big ears... Henry? That one from the Hound case! Molly
Is he at your place...? SH
Who? Henry? I wish. Molly
No. John SH
Not tonight but he left Gladstone here. He went to Harry's Molly
And I was afraid you would get yourself a dog. Cats are better for you. Would you be so nice as to open the door? SH
Molly stood up from chair, almost dropping her phone.
You're HERE? At my door?! Molly
What are you even doing here?! Molly
Are you going to open it? It's freezing out there SH
What are you doing in London?! Molly
Well, there's the last of Moriarty's people I need to get rid off and I'm free. I have everything to clear my name. That person is probably the one who killed Mary. He's here in London, waiting for me, and if I don't stop him now, John will be the next victim. Now. Open. The. Door! I AM FREEZING HERE! SH
She ran to the door and opened it quickly. She looked at Sherlock oh, he was a bloody ginger now and almost cried. He looked so tired.
"Come in. I'll fetch you some tea and feed you. You look terrible."
She hugged him tight.
"What's that smell...?"
"Bigos. You wanted some so I brought you some..."
She smiled a little.
"Welcome home, Sherlock. I mean... To London..."
She saw a small smile on his face.
"It's good to see you. Thanks for taking care of him, and... for everything. Thank you for being my friend, Molly."
Oh, why would he say such a thing? She was going to cry... She had always been his friend; he just didn't realize it for such a long time. But it was okay; he trusted her in the end. Well, it was Sherlock after all always too busy with his thoughts to notice that people cared about him.
"It's good to have you here!"
A small, tired smile appeared on his face.
"It's good to be back."
