“Afraid I’ll embarrass you?” mocked Sherlock, looking up suddenly, his stare spearing Mycroft where he sat.
Sherlock was too thin, too dirty – it was always a bad sign when he neglected personal hygiene – and he looked as if he hadn’t slept for a week.
“Oh, that ship sailed some years ago. You’ve been vocal enough about what you don’t want. So tell me, brother dear, what is it you do want?”
“You to leave me the fuck alone,” said Sherlock venomously.
Several heads turned. Mycroft ignored them. He took such incidents for granted when he was with Sherlock and had never cared what strangers thought – unless required to do so by his job.
Why You Should Read This:
Greg Lestrade and Mycroft Holmes meet over the arrest of Sherlock (naturally) and are drawn to each other. The story is slow building, taking a deeper look of Mycroft’s and Greg’s inner feelings in this pre-slash part 1 of the series. And it works, both have personal hurdles to overcome before they are both in a place to take it forward. And it gets better and better with each part that you read. You will fall in love with this pair because 1. they are god damn sexy and 2. they work well with their multi-grey levels in their lives (infidelity, secret squirrel, violent crime etc). Kazvl works magic with this pairing and it’s an addictive read.
