    Summary

    Thirty-five was the established boundary, Sherlock decided after extensive calculations. He would be dead by thirty-five. That was the kind of man he was. That was the kind of life he lived.

    At thirty-four, a year before his appointed rendezvous with oblivion, Sherlock met a man. Nobody special, or so he thought, an ordinary man--who soon proved extraordinary, a man who killed without hesitation to protect a life Sherlock cared nothing about.

    ***

    This is the story of how Sherlock Holmes lived long enough to grow old.

    Summary

    "I've got Louis."

    He didn't mean it to come out that menacing but the naturally deep lilt of his voice wasn't helping. The female on the other end of the phone gave a hysterical squeal.

    "Please! Don't hurt him!"

    Harry frowned, lip protruding sullenly in mild offence.

    "I'm not-I'm not going to hurt him," he argued.

    "What do you want?" The woman cried, voice wobbling with emotion.

    Harry frowned.

    "I want Louis," he answered because wasn't that much already obvious? Maybe Louis' family were just really thick.
