Summary: Holmes needs a test subject - Mrs. Hudson nor Watson are amused.


"This is the only warning you get, Mr. Holmes!"

Watson stops in front of the door to their living room when Mrs. Hudson storms out of it, her old terrier clutched in her arms. She nods curtly a greeting, then goes downstairs while muttering under her breath.

Bemused Watson enters the living room to see a pouting Holmes moodily staring into the flames. "What have you done, Holmes?" he asks and Holmes growls testily.
"Why do you immediatly assume that I did something?!"

Watson just cocks one eyebrow and to his amusement Holmes blushes and lowers his head to his chest.
"I might have tried using the dog for one of my experiments."

"Now really, Holmes," Watson admonishes. "You can not use one person's pet for an experiment!"
"But it is already old!" Holmes complaines with a slight whine. "And I need a test subject."

He throws a calculating glance at Watson, who simply snorts. "Don't even think of it."

With a put upon sigh Holmes' stare returns to the fire, while Watson takes his seat in the other chair.
Nevertheless he is going to be careful with his food for the next few days - you never know what his flatmate might be up to.

Wise choice, Watson, especially in light of Stamford's comment about how capable he thought Holmes of slipping an alkaloid into someone's food just to see the results.

"Watson, describe the pain you're experiencing! And be precise!"
