Chapter Eight, Perseveration
Walking down the street with groceries John stopped when his mobile started to ring. Putting down the bags he dug through his pockets in search of the ringing device. Glancing at the number before answering John frowned his brow.
"Good morning, Detective Inspector." John greeted.
"Dr. Watson." Lestrade greeted in turn. "I need you to get Sherlock to come to the Isle of Dogs."
"Why don't you call him then? I'm not Sherlock's keeper."
"Of course you are." Lestrade retorted. "Anyways, he's not answering his mobile. The last three cases I tried to get him interested in

"Stop what?" John asked.
"Holding your wrist to your chest. If it goes off prematurely you'll end up dead rather than just maimed."
John looked down and saw that he was cradling the wrist with the deadly watch protectively against his chest. Moving slowly John held his arm out to the side awkwardly. His heart was still racing as they made their way into the basement morgue of Bartholomew Hospital.

John woke with a dry throat and a splitting headache.

Still fully dressed John found himself tangled in his bedsheets. Trying to get to his feet John fell to the floor.
"Sher..." John stopped as his stomach rebelled and he was sent into a fit of dry heaving. "Sherlock!"
John was not surprised when his friend didn't come to help him. Taking a deep breath to reorient himself John managed to get up. Looking and feeling like he'

Chapter Four, Den of Iniquity
"Where are you going, Sherlock?" John muttered to himself.
John felt that so far he had managed to avoid being spotted by his friend, but as they traveled deeper into a seedier section of the city the population was starting to become spares making it more difficult to hide. Rather than grab a cab Sherlock had been making his way across the city on foot.
