Missing racehorse. Need to go to Totnes. Today.
SH

Message sent 13:13
How does a whole racehorse go missing?

Message received 13:13
There is precedent. Even you’ve heard of Shergar.
SH

Message sent 13:14
Is this linked?

Message received 13:15
Don’t be stupid.
SH

Message sent 13:15
You brought it up

Message received 13:16
Train leaves at 15:06. Meet me at Paddington.
SH

Message sent 13:16
You want me to come?

Message received 13:16
Obviously.
SH

Message sent 13:17
Need to be a later train then. Don’t get off till 5

Message received 13:17
Urgent.
SH

Message sent 13:17
The horse will still be missing in a few hours

Message received 13:18
Not if I get there.
SH

Message sent 13:18
Working

Message received 13:18
Boring.
SH

Message sent 13:19
How long are we going to be away so I can tell Sarah I’ll be unavailable for work?

Message received 13:20
Tell her you’re unavailable now.
SH

Message sent 13:20
Come on I can’t leave her in the lurch

Message received 13:20
How is leaving now leaving her more in the lurch than not being there tomorrow?
SH

Message sent 13:21
I’d like to give her warning

Message received 13:22
Warn her you need to be at Paddington by 15:06.
SH

Message sent 13:23
I’m not leaving

Message received 13:23
Packing your gun.
SH

Message sent 13:25
Good. You get the bags and take them up first. I’ll get a later train and meet you there. Text me the hotel address

Message received 13:26
Don’t make me come and get you.
SH

Message sent 13:28
I can get a train at 18:03. Be in Totnes by 21:00

Message received 13:29
On way to surgery.
SH

Message sent 13:30
I’m sure you can cope for a couple of hours on your own

Message received 13:34
Outside Surgery.
SH

Message sent 13:34
Busy

Message received 13:35
In waiting room.
SH

Message sent 13:35
Go away Sherlock I’ll follow later

Message received 13:36
Come out.
SH

Message sent 13:36
No

Message received 13:36
Then let me in.
SH

Message sent 13:37
Busy

Message received 13:37
You haven’t got a patient in there and you haven’t buzzed for a new one.
SH

Message sent 13:38
That’s because if I open the door you’ll try to get in

Message received 13:39
If you’re not working you may as well come to Totnes with me.
SH

Message sent 13:40
I’d be working if you went away

Message received 13:40
But I won’t so you’re not.
SH

Message sent 13:40
Go away Sherlock

Message received 13:41
We’ll miss our train.

You’re still in the surgery I can hear you

Message sent 15:59
What are you doing?

Message sent 14:01
Sherlock?

Message sent 14:02
You can’t make me come out

Message sent 14:04
I can hear shouting what are you doing?

Message received 14:05
I’m solving your patients.
SH

Message sent 14:06
Oh god

Message received 14:06
If I solve them all for you you don’t need to stay till 5.
SH

Message sent 14:07
Why was there shouting?

Message received 14:08
One took offence.
SH

Message sent 14:09
Which one?

Message received 14:09
Mr Hallinson.
SH

Message sent 14:10
He’s huge!

Message received 14:10
I’m aware of that.
SH

Message sent 14:11
He used to be wrestler!

Message received 14:11
I know. He didn’t like it when I told him he used to throw fights.
SH

Message sent 14:12
What?

Message received 14:13
I’m coming in.
SH

Message sent 14:13
No!

Message received 14:14
Sarah is letting me in.
SH

Message sent 14:14
I don’t know how you persuaded her but you’re not coming in

Message received 14:15
I’m a patient.
SH

Message sent 14:15
No you’re not you’re a pain

Message received 14:16
What would it take to make me a patient?
SH

Message sent: 14:17
A real actual injury

Message received 14:17
Define ‘real actual’ injury.
SH

Message sent 14:18
One with blood. Lots and lots of blood.

Message received 14:19
Will approximately 3/5 of a pint do?
SH

Message sent 14:20
What? Are you thinking of giving yourself an injury just to get in?

Message received 14:21
No, Mr Hallinson has already taken care of that.
SH

Message sent 14:23
What?

Message received 14:25
Sarah thinks it might be broken.
SH

Message sent 14:26
Are you kidding?

Message received 14:27
She says I need to go to the hospital for x-rays.
SH

Message sent 14:28
Is this a joke?

Message received 14:29
I’m not sure that’s supposed to stick out like that.
SH

Message sent 14:30
Are you alright?

Message received 14:30
Feel a bit woozy.
SH

Message sent 14:31
Why are you still texting?

Message received 14:32
Because you’re still shut in your room.
SH

Message sent 14:33
Coming out now

Message received 14:33
Hope we don’t miss our train.
SH

Message sent 18:57
No sorry can’t come out tonight am in Totnes. You would not believe the act Sherlock pulled to get me out here.
