: A visitor comes looking for information, but it is so much more he starts to see.
He waits until the young, self-proclaimed consulting detective
left his new home and disappeared around the corner before he crosses the street. While he donned a satisfying disguise it would not be advisable to risk drawing the young man's attention.
It is not yet time for them to meet each other.
And yet curiosty can even bend the most powerful man's will and he could no longer resist the temptation of taking a closer look. Holmes is just too refreshing
A simple look at his living conditions will grant him a lot of material for his equations.
He is quite surprised when the landlady declares that he might wait for Holmes, but should not be a bother to the doctor. A doctor?
the rooms with someone?
Just what kind of man would willingly share their daily live with a man like Holmes?
He has been observing the boy for a while now and is quite aware of his most ecentric character. Who is this doctor?
He gets his answer soon enough - while the doctor,crippled and weak, is most respectful and polite, he watches him like a hawk and the battle horned senses of a soldier immediatly recognize him as a threat.
Apparently Holmes is not the only outstanding man living in 221b.
He makes his excuses quickly and leaves; the doctor's piercing glare follows him through the window until he disappears around the corner.
He takes his waiting carriage and starts to remove his disguise, his mind racing through the possibilities.
The doctor is a new element to the equations and he has to consider him carefully.
But he is an interesting
element and he can not wait to see just what the two boys are going to achieve.
The outcome, James Moriarty muses, might be phenomenal.
