The loss of a young boy’s life is discouraging, and Sherlock blames himself. John is there to comfort and reassure his detective. Enjoy previous chapters: Two Gentlemen Sharing, A Game For Gentlemen, and A Gentleman’s Gratitude!
And a short teaser…
Only eight years of age and according to all, a bright and friendly lad, whom in no way deserved to fall into the clutches of the vile kidnapper, Hailey, and his gang. Hailey insists the death was an accident, that he had not intended the boy to die, that it was his underling who delivered the fatal blow. Holmes actually struck the man at that point, in one of his rare displays of actual temper, which is much different from his usual melodramatics.
We left the Yard shortly after and returned to Baker Street. Mrs. Hudson brought up a tray of sandwiches and tea, but Holmes ignored it, going instead to the window to stare down at the road below.
I managed half a gammon sandwich and took several swallows of the tea, but the sight of Holmes so still at the window caused me to leave off trying to behave normally. Instead, I rose and went to the sideboard to fetch two portions of our best whiskey before joining Holmes at the window. He was reluctant to take the glass but I forced it into his hand. “Drink it, Sherlock,” I said. “On your doctor’s order. And your dear companion’s advice.”
