21 Days
SH

10:02
What?
JW

10:03
21 Days and 9 hours.
SH

10:03
Until what?
JW

10:04
Should be obvious, even to you.
SH

10:05
Need I remind you that I've only gotten seven hours sleep in the past three days thanks to your case?
JW

10:05
Oh, my case is it? And I only got four.
SH

10:06
They're all your cases. True – but you don't have to work come Tuesday mornings.
JW

10:07
Didn't know my cases were such a burden upon you. You always seem quite eager to assist.
SH

10:07
You know what – let's just take a breath. This could turn into a nasty fight very quickly.
JW

10:08
Breathing is boring.
SH

10:08
Sherlock!
JW

10:09
Fine. Yes. Breathing deeply. Satisfied?
SH

10:09
Yes. Let's start over then. 21 days until what?
JW

10:10
It's really not that difficult.
SH

10:11
Sherlock I'm at the Yard waiting to give statements for you to the press because you couldn't be bothered to mingle with the other case agents for fifteen minutes. So stop being an arse. I'm not guessing.
JW

10:11
Then count the days.
SH

10:12
Fine. Let me find a calendar.
JW

10:15
Oh – can't believe I missed that!
JW

10:15
Told you it was simple.
SH

10:15
Stuff it.
JW

10:16
Right. Sorry. But you do see the importance?
SH

10:16
Course! Halloween is my second favorite holiday.
JW

10:17
Second?!
SH

10:17
Yeah. Xmas comes first of course.
JW

10:18
Christmas?!
SH

10:19
Somehow I can actually visualize you spitting that word out disdainfully.
JW

10:19
Perhaps you have remote viewing skills then.
SH

10:20
Ha ha. What's wrong with Xmas anyway?
JW

10:20
I could provide you with an extensive list. However that would upset you and seeing as we've just avoided one fight I'd rather not begin another.
SH

10:21
Good call. I'm guessing that Halloween is your favorite holiday then?
JW

10:21
Brilliant deduction.
SH

10:22
Careful love, you might drown in all that dripping sarcasm.
JW

10:22
I'm an excellent swimmer.
SH

10:23
Never mind. Somehow it doesn't surprise me that Halloween is you favorite.
JW

10:23
And why is that?
SH

10:24
Just suites you. Creepy stuff, body parts, skulls. Sounds like 221B.
JW

10:25
Never thought of it that way, but you make an excellent point.
SH

10:25
Why have you never made such a big deal out of it before?
JW

10:26
What do you mean?
SH

10:26
We've lived with each other for the past two Halloweens and you've never even mentioned it.
JW

10:27
I was occupied with cases at the time. Work takes precedence.
SH

10:28
Oh right. I remember now. So what are the plans then? Decorating?
JW

10:28
Unsure. Though as you earlier pointed out our flat is already fittingly decorated for Halloween.
SH

10:29
Yeah. Few more spider webs and we could open it up as a haunted house.
JW

10:29
I will not tolerate hordes of mindless idiots trampling through our home.
SH

10:30
I was just kidding. No decorating then. Costumes?
JW

10:31
I haven't dressed up for Halloween in quite some time. I saw no reason to do so when I knew I would simply be sitting around the flat on my own. But perhaps this year.
SH

10:31
Lestrade hosts a small Halloween party every year. We should go.
JW

10:32
A party?
SH

10:32
Yeah. Molly is helping him plan it – Halloween in her favorite holiday too.
JW

10:33
Sounds tolerable.
SH

10:33
There's a few ghost tours we could go on as well. Though I don't suppose you believe in ghosts.
JW

10:34
I have no opinion on their existence. It's not entirely out of the question.
SH

10:34
The tour or the existence of ghosts?
JW

10:35
Both.
SH

10:35
Okay the. I can look up some that have ghost of those who were murdered. You can try and solve it on the way
JW

10:35
A challenge? I'm in.
SH

10:36
Great. So haunted tour and party. Sounds good to me. What are you going to be?
JW

10:37
Be?
SH

10:37
For the party. What costume are you going to wear?
JW

10:38
I've a few ideas. I need to do some research.
SH

10:38
Research? What for?
JW

10:39
My costumes are always historically correct.
SH

10:39
Right fine. Don't tell me. I'm thinking of going as a zombie.
JW

10:39
How original.
SH

10:40
I just want to have fun.
JW

10:40
And being a mindless brain eating creature is fun?
SH

10:40
To me.
JW

10:41
Fine. Though if I where you I'd plan on eating before we go.
SH

10:41
What?
JW

10:41
I don't think there will be on overabundance of brains present.
SH

10:42
You're a twat.
JW

10:42
Perhaps. But a clever one.
SH

10:44
Ah – reporters finally here. See you in a bit.
JW
An update! In honor of my favorite holiday, because who doesn't love Halloween? (That is a rhetorical question and if you do not love Halloween leave immediately because there is something seriously wrong with you.)


If convenient please review; if inconvenient review anyway.

My cousin does amazing Halloween. I'm not surprised  he likes it so much. John can just eat his brain and will be full for years to come.

Makes me remind this Halloween. Actually, this would be the very first Halloween I have ever had. Some kind of excited, and a little nervous. Well, perhaps not as sweet as theirs, but still looking forward to it~
