yawn i'm sleepy

  • *Bart's lab*
  • Sherlock: *enters; sopping wet*
  • Molly: *raises her eyebrows* Whoa, is it raining out?
  • Sherlock: *shivering* No, I jumped into the Thames.
  • Molly: *sighs* Alright, I only asked.
  • Sherlock: ...
  • Molly: ...
  • Molly: *chuckles nervously* You- you're not serious?
  • Sherlock: *nods*
  • Molly: *horrified* Oh my God...why? Why did you do that? Nevermind, I have some towels in my locker... *starts to run out*
  • Sherlock: *grabs her wrist* No. I'm fine.
  • Molly: *swallows* Are things that bad? Because you know there's people you can talk to *touches his arm* there's John and Mary, Mrs. Hudson...your brother. And me.
  • Sherlock: *smiles* You misunderstand. I witnessed...
  • Molly: Witnessed what??
  • Sherlock: *breathes deeply* Someone threw a box of helpless kittens over the side. I counted six in total *rummaging in his coat* Only one of them made it.
  • Molly: *sympathetic* Oh, Sherlock...
  • Sherlock: *removes the tiny kitten* Oscar. If you don't like it, feel free to change it.
  • Molly: *smiles* He's beautiful.
  • Sherlock: And yours.
  • Molly: *hesitates* Oh, no. No, no...I can't-
  • Sherlock: *stroking the kitten* I'm sure you'll take better care of him than his previous owner. This poor orphaned kitten with the black patch of fur over his left eye, making him look like a pirate.
  • Molly: *takes the kitten* You jumped into a dirty river to save some baby cats from drowning.
  • Sherlock: *shivering* Yes.
  • Molly: *sighs* That's not fair. At least give the other men a chance.
  • Sherlock: *smiles*
  • Molly: *gestures at his coat* You're getting my morgue wet.
  • Sherlock: I'd undress but it's cold in here.
  • Molly: *shrugs* I can take you home-
  • Sherlock: *grabs her hand; pulling her out of the morgue* Okay.
