General Disclaimer

Here is a song fic I wrote. I'll admit it probably isn't that great since it is my first try at writing. The original song is by Lifehouse and the song is called "Everything".

Find me here
Speak to me
I want to feel you
I need to hear you

Lestrade woke up suddenly realizing it was another nightmare. She tried to calm down, but she couldnít rid her mind of that sad day. Then she did the strangest thing; she started to cry.

You are the light
That is leading me
To the place where
I find peace again

It had been a week since Holmes died, again. But this time it was for real, and he would not be coming back. She remembered it clearly, like it was yesterday.

You are the strength
That keeps me walking
You are the hope
That keeps me trusting

"Ah, Holmes and Lestrade. How nice it is to see you here," Moriarty said with an evil grin on his face.

"Too bad I cannot say the same," Holmes replied, frustrated.

"Moriarty, why did you bring us here?" Lestrade asked as she looked over the edge to the river below.

He started laughing. "I want Holmes to suffer the same fate I did when I died here at this waterfall."

You are the life to my soul
You are my purpose
You are everything

A fight had broken out and Holmes and Lestrade were losing. Unfortunately Watson was shot with an ionizer and was out cold (if you can say that about a compudroid).

And how can I stand here with you
And not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this

It seemed that the battle had taken a turn for the better as Lestrade shot the last guy standing in the way between her and Moriarty with her ionizer. Holmes was right behind her, being weaponless himself. She turned to say something to Holmes, but a swift kick knocked the ionizer out of her hands.

"How pitiful, Inspector. I expected more from you," Moriarty sneered as he threw her ioniser over the edge of the falls. "Now I shall kill you with this." He pulled out a revolver and aimed at Lestrade.

You calm the storms
You give me rest
You hold me in your arms
You wonít let me fall

Moriarty pulled the trigger and the world seemed to be in slow motion.

"NO!" Holmes yelled and pushed Lestrade out of the way, taking the shot himself.

"HOLMES!" Lestrade yelled as he fell to the ground. She decided Moriarty had gone too far this time. She ran and kicked the revolver out of his hand before he had a chance to shoot. She knocked it into her hands, and took aim at Moriarty.

"This is for Holmes," she said as she pulled the trigger. She looked to see a mortified look on his face as he fell over the edge.

You steal my heart
And you take my breath away
Would you take me in
Would you take me deeper now

She ran back to Holmes and examined him. The bullet had hit the middle of his chest and luckily not his heart.

"Holmes, Iím sorry...." was all she managed before she started to cry.

"Itís ...not your... fault, Lestrade," Holmes gasped. The bullet must have hit a lung. "I... would have... gladly...taken a shot... for you...because...I love you."

"I love you, too. Now just hang in there, the med team's on their way," she said still crying.

Holmes said in a weak voice, "No...Itís too...late. Iím...going...to die." He grasped her hand and held it tight.

"Please hang on," she said, grasping his hand a little tighter. "Holmes, you canít die. Not now."

"I canít...help...it...Beth." Lestrade smiled at hearing him call her Beth. "Donít...bring me...back...this time."

"Holmes...." was all she could say before he continued.

"Remember, Beth...Iíll...always...love you...and Iíll...always ...be with...you." And with his last breath he said, "Goodbye."

'Cause you are all I want
Youíre all I need
Youíre everything
Everything

Lestrade felt his grip loosen up and she knew he was dead. "NO!" she screamed and leaned over him. She stayed that way until the med team arrived two minutes later. They covered his body and drove away with it.

Now you understand why Lestrade woke up crying. She looked over at her dresser and saw a picture of Holmes smiling. She picked it up and hugged it close to her. She lay back down in her bed thinking, I will be with you, someday. And she fell back asleep.

And how can I stand here with you
And not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this

THE END
