Sherlock had never run faster in his whole life. Not even the pouring rain could stop him; no matter how much he slipped, he would get up and continue to run. The people around him would either move to the side, freeing the way, or be pushed by him. He had to get back to 221B.

The fear, the anxiety, the nerves got over him, taking over the bit of control he had of himself and his own emotions. His hands, forehead and armpits were sweating and his heart was beating faster – and no, it had nothing to do with his current running marathon – without mentioning the fact that he was looking paler than usual.

He was human, after all, and knowing that the one person who could get him to feel, to embrace his humanity, could be in mortal danger was more than enough for him to forget about everything else and act like a regular person would. If it had been someone else, except for John of course, he would’ve acted as chill as possible; but it was (Y/N) and there was no time to play-pretend when it came to her.

It was just one text message, a very simple and annoyed one that made him lose all control. She had sent it, or so it seemed, because Sherlock received it from her phone. It could’ve been a trap, or worse, but that didn’t matter because Sherlock would become even more reckless when she was involved.

If he exploded, if he got murdered, or trapped or kidnapped, it didn’t matter. As long as she was safe… he would go to the end of the world and sacrifice himself to the Gods if necessary.

His fear was such that his whole body turned off the physical sensations, and so he didn’t notice the muscular exhaustion that was caused by him crossing London by foot in less than ten minutes. He also didn’t feel the scrapes on his knees and elbows, as well as that little twist in his ankle. No, all he could focus on was saving (Y/N).

I remember when I was ten somebody gave me a diary for a present. But I felt like it was too late, so I didn’t write in it. Too much had already happened. So, it wouldn’t be the whole story. I feel that way again, and I’m fourteen. Nobody’d believe it. Ain’t nobody to tell. A girl falls in the city, but nobody sees it. Did it happen?

Sunday Progress Update:

Welllllll…this week has not been my best.  Not even close.  It’s been much more mental exhaustion that has kept me from working out every day like I always intend to.  Between work being hectic and requiring me to be “on” even more than usual and my mother being in the worst mood ever, I’ve just done far too much sitting around watching OITNB (least favorite season so far) and reading (Before We Were Yours was awesome, and I really enjoyed Allie and Bea!).  My mother is currently on her “I have no life so I wish I could just kill myself” kick…which then leads to her “But I would never do that because God is just testing me” kick…both of which put me through the emotional wringer.  She qualifies for respite care services; however, due to a fun late-in-life-onset bout of racism, she is “too scared” to leave a stranger alone in her home because I told her that NO she is NOT allowed to request a “white caregiver only please.”  WTF?!?!?!  I seriously blame her membership in the cowboy church–I loathe that she’s become a member of that backwards cult…but that’s taking us off topic.

Long story short, it’s been a taxing week.  I’m not in the mood to beat myself up for falling short.  I should FINALLY be able to work my summer hours for the first week ever next week, and I’ll compensate for this week’s poor showing.  Annnnd, because I sometimes make brilliant decisions, I took Monday off!

Thanks for the support on yesterday’s post!  The husband is extremely patient with me, and he pretty much left me to my own devices all day and I felt so much better!  Then, we went on a early evening date, enjoyed some no-kid-in-the-house sex, and then headed over to our friends’ house for poker night!  The husband won $130!  And, that will now finance tonight’s dinner at our favorite pub! 

Poker night (Race x reader)

//I found this v old fanfic I made a while ago on my old wattpad and its pretty cringe but why not post it🤷🏻‍♀️//

Jack,Race, and all the other newsies were sitting in the Newsboy lodging house playing poker when Romeo decided to play truth or dare instead.

It was Jack’s turn first and that was never good.

“Alright hmmm” Jack said as he was scanning the room looking for people to embarrass

“Racetrack truth or dare?” Jack asked the boy sitting down, smoking.

“Truth” he replied taking out his cigar to speak.

“Okay Racetrack… who do you like?” Jack asked curious to find out the Italian’s crush.

“U-ummm… Y/N” He said looking down at his lap and fiddling with his cigar and blushing.

The newsboy lodging house fell silent before it erupted with laughter.

some newsies made comments like..

“Look at his face its so red!”

“he looks like a tomato”

“I bet you my papes for a week that he don’t got the guts to tell her” Jack said earning a glare from Race.

“I do too!” Race said slightly offended

“Fine then you will just have to show me” Jack says

“Alright fine if we win the strike then I will tell her how i feel and if I do then you owe me all of your papes for a week and if I don’t tell her then I will give you all of my papes.

~Time Skip to end of strike~

It has been one week since the strike ended and Race was pacing around the newsboys lodging house. He didn’t think they would actually win.

"Whats the matter Race? Thinking of ways to ask out Y/N? Jack asks him teasingly

"Oh shut up Jack” Race says slightly annoyed

“Well you better think fast cause here she comes” Jack says motioning towards a figure walking towards the Lodging house.

“Hey Jack and hey Race!” You said as you walked into the lodging house

“H-Hey Y/N” Race stutters a bit as Jack walks into the bathroom not wanting to ruin the moment but also wanting to watch Race blush and stutter.

“Look I need to talk to you” Race says sitting down on his bunk and patting a seat down next to his a motion for you sit down next to him

you sat down and he looked into your eyes

“Listen i’ve liked you for a while now and i was wondering if you would like to be my goil?” Race asked hoping for you to feel the same but expecting rejection.

You kissed him and he kissed back but you were pulled apart from hearing an annoyed groan come from none other then Jack Kelly.

“Why did he groan at us” you asked confused

“Oh he is just mad that i get all of his papes for a week” Race says as he smiled

//Ahhh cringe 😷😤//
