Imagine telling your father and your sister that you’re dating a high functioning sociopath

She pursed her lips and then spoke, “You know sociopaths don’t fall in love, don’t you Y/N?”

“Sherlock’s not a sociopath! He’s a high functioning sociopath.” Your father scanned you and frowned as if he could recognise you. “He can love.”

“Y/N, are you sure about this? This guy…uhm…” her voice trailed off.

You ran your hand all over your face. “He loves me and I love him, ok? Nothing is going to stop us. Love is the most powerful thing on Earth!”

“Darling, did this boyfriend of yours accidentally drugged you?” Your father asked concerned of your state.
