Chapter Three
After almost two hours of alternating between pounding on the door to loitering around, Lestrade finally came to the conclusion that Holmes and Watson were not in, and probably wouldn't be for a while. She didn't know wether to be relieved or disappointed. She chose relief. After all, they weren't close family; they really didn't need to know. Besides, they'd find out along with everyone else once it became rather obvious.
Yeah, right. Admit it; you're scared of what they're gonna think about you.
No, I'm not. I just think that since we're really only business colleagues, my being pregnant is none of theirs.
With that thought in mind, she turned around (she was in one of her door pounding sessions) and walked back down the hallway, down the seventeen steps and out to her cruiser. A glance at the chronopiece on the computer had her groaning. No wonder she was so tired. Well, she'd go home, get some sleep and...then she had no idea what she was going to do. Maybe talk to Alice. Yeah, that sounded like a good plan.
The next morning she woke up to a persistent pounding on the door, followed by consecutive buzzes. Groaning she sat up and threw on a robe over her nightclothes. The only person she knew who came here this early was Holmes, and if he didn't like the way she was dressed then he shouldn't come so early.
"All right, all right, I'm coming. Geez..." She yanked the door open, and stood staring at her father.
"Morning, sweets," he said kissing her on the cheek, "I just thought I'd come over and tell you that your mother and aunt have gone insane. You know that group of 'troubled' teens your uncle and I have been counseling with old war stories and such? Well, Janine had this bright idea that they would make the perfect crew to redo your extra room. Coming with me?"
"What?! Yes, just let me get changed." She rushed back into her room and quickly dressed in her uniform, mumbling dire threats the entire time.
A few minutes later they were in her father's hovercar flying over New London.
