A teaser as always…
My over-bearing brother occasionally accuses me of taking John Watson for granted.
I could argue the point but probably will not trouble myself to do so. On one occasion when Mycroft expressed that particular opinion, Watson overheard his words and replied mildly, “If a man cannot take his most intimate friend for granted sometimes, then perhaps their bond is not as strong as it should be.”
Life is perfect between the Detective and his Doctor as they find humor and yet another case. By nightfall, the mystery is solved and the two share a private moment together. A Game For Gentlemen is part of a continuation from last year’s December Fielets, by mydogwatson! Above art by Andy White on deviantart. [Fielets you may have missed: Two Gentlemen Sharing]
A little teaser as always…
We had long since finished breakfast and were both indulging rather lazily in a third cup of tea whilst reading through the morning papers [myself the Times and Holmes, sadly, the notorious Pall Mall Gazette.] He claims that all the gossip in a scandalous paper like that is worth more to him than the reasoned thoughtfulness to be found in a respectable publication such as the Times. I have given up the battle on that particular front.
Despite that long-running journalistic stand-off, all was contentment within 221B. Billy had done stalwart fireplace duty earlier, so the room was pleasantly warm and very cozy on what was a blustery chill day beyond our walls.
I cannot speak for Holmes, of course, but for myself, that contentment was not unrelated to our to our activities of the previous night.
What we had experienced was so special that it can barely be spoken of. The words do not exist, at least within my poor lexicon to describe the tenderness, the sweet devotion that Holmes and I had shared within our bedroom. The heat of passion is one thing and not to be dismissed. But our mood during those hours was of a different nature. Each touch was a blessing. Each kiss an act of devotion. When we came to our completions, in harmony, the very act of love became a sacrament.
I suppose those words would, in the eyes of many, condemn me to a fiery eternity, but to anyone who believed in that sort of thing, I was already doomed. That was a possible fate I would be willing to accept if I still believed.
As we ate our eggs, toast, and ham, then continued to linger over too much tea and our newspapers, we still exuded a sense of mutual peace that was entirely pleasant.
Enjoy the full story at A Game For Gentlemen and please share your thoughts with my talented friend mydogwatson.
