“Ahhh got it!” Sherlock jumped up from his chair and walked around the room tapping his fingers together.
“About time.” You laughed walking out of the kitchen. He gave you a funny look and turned around.
“He’s a scientist. How else would he have access to all those chemicals and, AND know how to use them? Ohhh I got you! To think you almost had me fooled. Ooo, I have to tell John.” The world’s only consulting detective, grabbed his coat and made his way out the door.
“Sherlock—halt!” You yelled before walking over to him.
“Why are you leaving so quickly and with no goodbye?” You placed a hand on your hip and raised an eyebrow whilst waiting for an answer.
“I’ve had a breakthrough; I need to go get John.” He responded as he bounced around, ready to run, in the spot in front of you.
“Mr. Holmes,” You flipped his collar up like he prefers it, “All I ask of you is; to give me a kiss every time you leave, so I can have you with me in some sort of way in case something were to happen to you.” You ran your hands down his coat then let them fall to your side.
“I’m sorry.” He bent down to reach your lips then gave you a smile when he pulled away.
“Thank you– now go, the world needs saving Sherlock.” He spun around on his heel and began down the stairs. “Oh and Mycroft wants you to call him!”
“Tell him I’m busy!” He yelled from the bottom of the stairs. You let out a laugh and headed straight to your phone. With Sherlock’s newest break through, you knew he wouldn’t be home until later. You and Mary had gotten very close, so surely a girls night was in plan.
“Sure, I’ll be right over! Ooo, do you have my favorite biscuits?”
“Always.“ You answered laughing.
"Give me ten minutes.” Hanging up you noticed how you were suddenly craving tea, so you put the kettle on. As the water heated you cleaned up then waited for Mary to show up.
“Hello!” You heard a voice call from the front room. Walking out of the one you were in, you were met by Mary’s smile.
“Come in, come in! Have a seat. Would you like a cuppa?” You took her coat and bag and placed them on the rack.
“Yes, please. It’s colder than usual today. And to think our men will be running around London in this weather.” She said laughing.
“Ohh, I’m sure they can handle it.” You replied also laughing. You went to get her some tea with biscuits and were humming while doing so. You were thrown off when you turned around and saw Mary giving you a big smile.
“What? Do I have something on me?” You asked.
“No.” She answered shaking her head with a smile.
“Then what is it?”
“You’re glowing.” She smiled.
“Oh, we’ll thank you.” You laughed.
“No Y/N, you’re glowing.” She stuck her head out and looked at you.
“I’m not pregnant.” You denied her accusations.
“Y/N, I know a mother when I see one.” Mary smiled at you while you thought about everything that has seemed out of ordinary.
“Oh my god.” You sat down looking around the room. “How do I tell Sherlock?”
After Mary went home, you took a pregnancy test just to be sure and it was positive.
“This is for real.” You told yourself quietly. Just a few minutes later Sherlock walked in so you went out to meet him.
“Hey.” You leaned on the door frame giving him a smile. “Did you solve the case?”
“Yes, as usual.” He smirked. He put his belongings down and looked at you again. Instantly he knew you were hiding something.
“Did something happen today?” He asked coming closer to you. You placed your hands on his face and gave him a kiss.
“Let’s sit down.” You followed right behind him and sat in the chair John would normally be in.
“So I’m just going to say it.”
“Mhmm.” His eyebrow lifted as curiosity set in.
“I’m pregnant…” You let out a deep breath. Sherlock didn’t move. He didn’t blink. For all you knew he wasn’t breathing. You sat there uncomfortable for the second time since meeting Sherlock. The first being when he told you your entire life story with just the way you smiled.
“Sherlock?” You put your head down to look in his eyes. “Are you alright? Do you want me to give you some space?”
“No.” He answered, shaking his head slowly.
“Ok, well I’m going to make some tea.” You got up and went to the kitchen. While you waited for the water, Sherlock came over and gave you a hug from behind.
“Oh– are you back, Mr. Sherlock Holmes?” You laughed turning around with his arms still around you.
“Think of all the cases he’ll be able to help me solve!” The detective looked around in thought, then to you.
“He’ll? You think it’s a boy?” You smirked.
“Well my mom did have two of them, it’s reasonable.”
“Oh lord, if he’s anything like you–”
“He’d be incredibly handsome, smart and love science.” Sherlock finished your sentence for you.
“Look out London.” You smiled giving out a slight laugh.
“There’s a new detective in town.” Sherlock grinned before bending down to kiss you.
