~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After no one could say how it happened and the both of them could only stare at each other in shocked silence. Neither of them moved, but when they heard the steps on the stairs they jumped into motion.
Together they removed any trace or proof of what happened within moments and were barely able to sit down when the door opened and their newest adversary entered the room.

Minutes later when they were alone again, they exchanged worried, even scared looks.

"She is going to flay us alive!" Watson whispered shakingly and Holmes quickly jumps to his feet full of nervous energy.
"Not if we are able to replace the broken one. Let's hurry, before Mrs. Hudson wants to make us fresh tea and comes looking for the pot!"

I'm somewhat surprised they don't just keep spare matching crockery in a secret box! ;)
