Might Be in Love with You

Stuck
On a plane
On a runway

Beth was really tired. She had just boarded the plane from a law enforcement convention. It really was just an excuse for the higher-up people to get together, pat each other on the back, and get drunk.

Cheap red eye
It's a one-way
Getting back to you
It takes forever
Will I ever hit the sky?

She glanced at her watch. Why did it take so long to get the plane going? She needed to get home to.... She thought about what her anticipation was, exactly; it came quickly. She wanted to get home to Holmes.

I think
I might
Be in love with you

I think
I might
Be in love with you

Lestrade decided right then and there to tell him how she felt. It was too much to keep to herself anymore.

Three
Whole seats
To myself
I'll lie down
And stretch out
But I know that I won't sleep at all
You're all I see when I close my eyes

He probably wouldn't take her declaration too well. He'd probably leave London. But then again, there was a glimmer of hope that she felt might come true. The possibilities of his reaction wouldn't let her rest.

I think
I might
Be in love with you

I think
I might
Be in love with you

I never had any reason not to roam
But tonight it feels like I'm going home
I think
I might
Be in love with you

"Lestrade!" Holmes smiled as she walked into his apartment. "You just missed Watson, he-"

Holmes didn't get a chance to finish his sentence. Lestrade had kissed him hard on the lips. She sighed and looked at his surprise. "Holmes, I like you. I like you a lot. Quite frankly, I think I might be in love with you."

She waited for what seemed forever for his response.

I think
I might
Be in love with you

"I'm glad those feelings are shared, my dear Beth." He smiled and kissed her. "If you think you love me, and I think I might be in love with you, then I guess we are in love."

"Figured that out all by yourself, huh, Sherlock?"

"Of course. I am, after all, Sherlock Holmes." He bent down for another kiss.

I think
I might
Be in love with you
