Truth or Dare
by Mary Christmas (unicorn_76010 at lycos.com)
Heh. Here's the next part.
Watson cleared his throat and looked away from the others and
mumbled to Holmes, "Truth or Dare?" hoping to get the attention off
"Dare," Holmes answered promptly (a little too promptly, if
you ask me...but of course you didn't, so I guess it doesn't matter.
Anyway, he chose 'dare' so I better come up with one, or rather
Watson had better come up with one....and here it is.).
"Hm. Then...I dare you to..." Watson looks around desperately
for help. "Say, Mary, what are these dares supposed to be about?"
Mary grinned evilly and moved to whisper in his ear. Watson's
eyes widened and he nodded. "Oh, yes, I see. Holmes, I dare you to
stand up and sing 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' at the top of your
lungs in a Texas drawl while jumping up and down on one leg and
wearing this." He held up a large nightgown Mary had stolen from her
mom and handed it to him. Holmes just raised an eyebrow and slipped
the gown over his head.
The next few minutes were rather hysterical as Holmes
performed his dare. Really hysterical. In fact, it was so funny and
chaotic that I can't even describe it. (So there.) It took about two
minutes for everyone to calm down and then Holmes turned to
Lestrade. (So far, only one hour of the forty-eight had been taken
up.) "Truth or Dare, Lestrade?"
"Truth," Lestrade answered promptly. (A little too promptly
if you ask me...wait a minute, didn't I already go through this? Oh,
well. She said 'truth' and there it is.)
"Is it true that the person you went to the senior prom with
ended up in the emergency room?"
"Yes, but he got fresh!"
"Really?" Mary questioned, "I never went to my prom. Just
another beauty pageant is all it is. I had more fun with all my
friends going out to a movie and PuttPutt afterwards." When everyone
just stared at her, she shrugged. "I don't know it just seemed an
appropriate moment to bring that up. Carry on, Lestrade; 'tis your
turn to ask."
"Uh huh." Lestrade turned to Deidre and asked the same
question all of them had asked.
"Truth, I think," Deidre said.
"All right," Lestrade said with a grin, "Isn't it true that
you have a major crush on Helton Paine the Third and just pretend
not to like him?"
Deidre went bright red at this and sighed. She mumbled
something only Tennyson with his enhanced hearing, and Frodo with
his hobbit hearing could understand. Of course no one really had
to understand, considering the fact that her face told the entire
story. So they all took pity on her and let her go ahead and ask
Wiggins "Truth or Dare?"
"Dare," Wiggins answered, "We haven't had enough of those."
"Okay then, Mary, do we have to say the dare out loud to
where everyone can hear?"
"Um...no, but you do have to tell at least three other
people. Or it doesn't count. I'll pick the people you have to tell.
Let me see. Harry, Frodo and....Moriarty. Oh yeah, and you do have
to tell Wiggins, of course."
"All right, then." Deidre stood up and whispered into
Harry's, Frodo's and Moriarty's ears. They all grinned and shook
their heads. Then she whispered into Wiggins' ear and he cried out.
"No way! That's too embarrassing!"
"You know what the alternative is, don't you?" Deidre said
with a grin.
"Fine." Wiggins stood up and went over and knelt in front of
Lestrade. He started singing, "Good morning beautiful, how was your
night, mine was wonderful with you by my side, when I open my eyes
and see your sweet face, it's a good morning beautiful day." His
face was flushed from embarrassment as he moved back to his spot,
muttering something about telling Helton Payne. Then he turned to
Tennyson who pressed a couple of keys.
"Okay," Wiggins said, "Is it true that you still sleep with
your security blanket?"
Tennyson emphatically shook his head in the negative and
pointed back at Wiggins, who went even redder than he already was.
"Uh, hehe, uh...well, ask Harry now."
I don't know how long this is going to be...I'm really
having fun with this. I can tell you that someone will feel that
their dare is way more embarassing than the alternative....
