could you please cross my street like that

“You could have called me, Sherlock, I would have helped.”

Mycroft sat across from his brother at 221B Baker Street. Sherlock had used again, and Mycroft was trying his best to get him some help, but he outright refused.

“Oh, like how you helped me last time by sending me away to rehab when I told you I didn’t want to go?”

Sherlock sat in his armchair, arms and legs crossed, looking more annoyed and tired than usual.

“Sherlock, please. Let me help you. I don’t want to see you like this.”

Like this, Sherlock repeats in his mind.

Like this - Vulnerable. Tired. High. Sick.

He’s sick. He knows he’s sick.

His drugs are his kryptonite.

Sherlock uncrossed his arms and placed his hands in his lap, staring at them in thought.

“Sherlock, please…”

Sherlock sighed. He couldn’t be mad at Mycroft. He was just trying to help, and he was just being difficult in return, as per usual.

“I will only agree to getting help -”

Mycroft perked up a bit.

“If the one to help me is you. No one else. No rehab centers. No strangers. You. I only need and want you, Mycroft. You helped me more than anyone, or anything, else has. Besides John, of course, but he has made it quite clear where his position lies.”

Sherlock felt the familiar pang in his chest when he thought about John. He had told Sherlock not to bother him, so he didn’t. It’s been three months, now.

Mycroft looked at his brother, a hint of empathy evident on his face.

“Alright,” Mycroft said. “You have me.”


It’s not Johnlock, but I’m still tagging in hope that you’ll all enjoy any other writings I do? xx
