Sherlolly Appreciation Week 2017 - Day One
It’s not quite the 14th here, but I’m calling it close enough. Utterly unbeta’d because that’s how I roll during Appreciation Weeks (apparently).

Sergeant Lestrade gave her a slightly distracted smile, but it was obvious that the majority of his attention was focused on Doctor Riker. “Have the results come through on the lab work I asked for?”
“You’ll have to ask Doctor Hooper,” Riker huffed. “I haven’t the time to humour your … associate; looking for traces of foul play that don’t exist, when Mrs Perkins clearly died from injuries sustained in a vehicular collision. Getting hit by a bus when you’ve darted into traffic can often prove fatal.” He smirked and tried to share a ‘Can you believe this?’ look with Molly, which she pretended not to see.
“Yeah, I imagine it does.” Lestrade nodded, then quickly turned toward Molly (and very deliberately away from Doctor Riker). “So, the results?”
