Summary: Holmes always wanted to be free and now he really understands what it means.

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

Holmes has always rebeled against being entrusted in someone's care. He refused to be constantly supervised, be it his mother, his nursemaid or mostly his older brother.
It was never that he did not care about those people nor that he did not understood their wish to see him safe.

But being supervised by someone almost always meant someone had some kind of control over him. They could tell him no, they could tell him to stop and he never wants to stop.

Even worse was their judgement, when they looked at him from above and more often than not simply shook their heads, dismising him and his ideas.
Holmes always just wanted to be free.

Now as he stands surrouned by a group of thugs all he can think of is the warm weight that settles against his side.

* "It could be dangerous," Holmes warned and Watson simply shruged. "Then we better stay together." *

With Watson watching over him, standing right at his side, Holmes now understands what it means to be well and truly free.
