One quote taken from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's A Study in Scarlet
and slightly tweaked.A/N:
Totally forgot to mention yesterday, but I intend to write all prompts connected to the early 1880's, mostly concerning Holmes and Watson starting to live together (maybe also the time after Holmes' return, when they re-start
living together). I just bought a flat myself and am renovating it (sadly not yet moved in), so I took that as inspiration (and challenge ^^) for this year's JWP. :)
So many things could go wrong, so many things quite probably will
go wrong. His mind races through all the possibilities, each worse than the one before.
It is the most dangerous decision he will ever make - not dangerous to his body nor mind, but to his heart and that is such enormous that even he can feel fear.
He knows this will change his life, will change everything and it is the most dangerous gamble ever.
And yet..."How are you?" I say cordially, gripping the doctor's hand. "You have been in Afghanistan, I perceive."
