    Summary

    "You're a man," John says
    "Problem?" the man asks, his voice a rumble of thunder across sandy planes.
    "No. I just didn't expect..."
    "Well," the man says. "Neither did I."

     

     
    John Watson wants not to be bored, and not to be forced to take these dance classes his fiancée wants him to take. Sherlock Holmes wants to live off of money not begged off of his brother, and to be allowed to solve cases that the idiots at New Scotland Yard clearly can't solve. They meet one Friday at 4 o'clock. Nothing is ever dull again.

    Summary

    Caution seemed characteristic of Sherlock now, along with the kind of careful thought about John’s likely reaction that he’d so completely failed to apply the one time it had really mattered.

    Summary

    The woman standing before him was gorgeous, all curves and long dark hair – exactly Greg’s type of woman. She was vaguely familiar, but a lot of people here were, so he pushed it out of his mind.
    “Yes?” he answered.
    “I’m Anthea. I’ve just made the winning bid on you,” she said with a ghost of a smile.
    “Really? Great. It’s not weird to congratulate you is it, given it’s my company you’ll be getting for the evening?” Greg tried to make a joke. Given her restrained smile, he suspected it had fallen flat.
    “Not my company, no,” she said.
    “Pardon?” Greg asked, wondering if he’d misheard her in the steadily increasing noise.
    “I’ve bought your time, but not your company,” she repeated. “In fact, I have a further proposition for you.”
