Your childhood friend who has always been there for you. So it came as no surprise when he had concerns about your relationship between the legendary Sherlock Holmes and yourself. You both his best friends therefore, he knew the both of you very well. He knew how heartless Sherlock could be and how sweet and kind you were. He was scared that you’d have your heart torn to pieces and that he’d walk all over you. He wanted you to be happy however he didn’t think Sherlock could make you feel that emotion. You had began to notice that John had changed. He became more awkward when you and Sherlock were near each other and would somehow get your attention when you began to show affection with your lover.



“John,” You said. You were sat in Sherlock’s chair in 221B and John was sat in his old armchair opposite you. He was visiting after his work before he returned home to Mary. “Why do you not like Sherlock?”

“Because he’s a tosser,” He laughed. “No, I do like him. Why would you think that?”

“You always react badly when we are near each other… Are you jealous?”

“What? No! I’m happy with Mary. I don’t fancy you, or him! No, I’m not jealous I just…”

“You just what?”

He sighed. “I’m worried about you, Y/N. You’re lovely and he’s… Well… Sherlock. I don’t want him to abandon you for some stupid case. He can be cold hearted and I don’t want you to be hurt.”

You smiled. “Thank you for your concern John but I’m happy with Sherlock.”

“Are you sure?”


“Well then I am happy for you."
