The World Wide Web

Before Lestrade could respond to Holmes' last message he had
signed off. Zed! She could just imagine his reaction to that site.
Sure, most of it was speculation, but a lot of it came uncomfortably
close to the truth...at least regarding her feelings.
Holmes arrived fifteen minutes later, and Lestrade
reluctantly pulled the website up. He skimmed over it quickly,
making noncommital noises which started to get on her nerves.
"Holmes! Will you please cut that out? Do you believe Aralyn
Holmes didn't even look up. "Oh, those doubts were cleared up
as soon as you told me about this. What I am looking for now is
something that may tell us what is going on."
Lestrade shook her head. "There isn't anything. I've been all
over this site, with the exception of the messageboard." At her
words, Holmes instantly clicked the link to the messageboard. She
rolled her eyes and pulled up a chair, prepared for a long wait.
After a few moments of reading over Holmes' shoulder
(laughing at some parts), Lestrade was convinced there was nothing
to be found, and she told Holmes so.
"Are you quite sure about that, Lestrade?" he questioned, his
eyebrow going up.
Frowning, Lestrade looked at the board again. "Yes, I'm sure."
"Then you did not notice that the dates on here end on
December the seventh, 2001."
Lestrade shrugged. "So, what does that have to do with
anything? Maybe no one liked this site after that date."
Holmes shook his head. "I highly doubt that, Lestrade.
Something happened to the people on this board...and it has
something to do with our friend's ability to speak through time. I
want to have a little chat with her."
Lestrade shrugged and told him to go ahead. She was a little
bit miffed that he hadn't even commented on the material contained
in this site.
