Chapter Eleven: Sister
He did it. The zedhead got us all here and's waving a laser
in my face. He finally gets to kill us and take over the world. God.
Lestrade looked at her companions out of the corner of her eye.
Well, guys, it's been fun.
I thought the good guys were always supposed to win in the end.
"My dear Beth, you must understand that this is all for your
own good. I can't tell you any more because you have to die
happy. You believe me don't you Beth?" Moriarty was waving the
laser more energetically now. "You understand?"
I always knew this guy was crazy.
"What?" Lestrade said exactly what was on her mind.
"It's for your own good, I don't want you to be hurt. Beth, you
have to understand."
"My own good?" Lestrade repeated blankly. "Youíre killing me
because you donít want me to be hurt? Oh yes, I understand perfectly,
you little zedhead."
Something flickered up in the back of Moriartyís eyes. "Iím
Yeah, weíre all sorry, jerk. Obviously not sorry enough,
Shaking his head sadly, Moriarty rounded on Holmes, "You must
stay out of the way or your little friends here will be, let us
say, put to sleep." He waved the gun towards Fenwick and the
"James, for heaven's sake. There is nothing I can do. If you
hadn't noticed I've had my hands and feet bound. Which, by the
way, made walking down that tunnel very uncomfortable."
Moriarty waved the laser some more. "Well it's your own fault.
Youíre in the way."
"Iím flattered. But, while on the subject of me, why on Earth
are you killing her? Not to seem arrogant, but I thought it was me you
wanted to get rid of?"
"That comes later."
I'm going to scream soon. Lestrade flexed her fingers.
Moriarty turned back to her, holding the laser to her head.
Though I might not have time.
"Hey, yeah, one thing before Iím murdered for my own good
health, Iíd just like to say that my spare car keys are in the
left hand drawer of my Yard desk. And Holmes... Holmes, if you
scratch that car, God help you."
"Of course, Inspector." Holmes looked like he was going to say
more but Moriarty flipped the safety catch. But even now, in his
moment of glory, he didnít seem at all happy.
"No." Holly's voice came out raspy and quiet, but seemed
thunderous in the ensuing silence. "No. Please, no."
Moriarty didn't bother to look at Holly when he asked "Why?"
"She's my sister!"
"You're s-" Moriarty's eyes widened, but didn't look away from
Lestrade. "What's your name?"
"Well, I'm sorry, sister, for that is, after all, Holly, what
you are, but it's the only way to keep her happy."
Moriarty pulled the trigger.
