Never Got to Say Goodbye - Chapter 4He was lying in a hospital bed. A machine next to him measured his heart rate, which was going slightly faster than usual. A tube attached to his wrist was feeding him nutrients.Never Got to Say Goodbye - Chapter 4 by crazyzukofangirl1280
And right at his bedside? Holding his hand with an expression of pure ecstasy?
“John…” Sherlock croaked.
Kind, brave, wonderful, brilliant, amazing, John in all his jumper-wearing glory.
The fact that John looked like he hadn't had a proper meal, or a good night rest; both things he nagged Sherlock to do; in a month didn't bother him,
What was important was that John was alive.
Sherlock then tried to hug John. But his limbs were like spaghetti from lack of movement. But John knew what Sherlock wanted and pulled him into an embrace. Sherlock gripped John as tightly as he could. He also shook with light sobs.
The hug didn't last long. John had raised Sherlock’s bed so he could sit up.
“You don’t remember what happened?” John asked
Sherlock, still shaken from the
Never Got to Say Goodbye - Chapter 3Sherlock was now in front of John’s grave. He didn't need to look at the gravestone. But he knew.Never Got to Say Goodbye - Chapter 3 by crazyzukofangirl1280
He just didn't know if you got to say goodbye. Not a grunt of acknowledgement. But a proper goodbye. One you say to someone when you might never see them again.
He was crying. He didn't know where he was, or what time was it. All he knew, was that he was crying.
He doesn't know how long it has been. Ever since Robert visited him, time didn’t have a meaning. It rushed during cases; when he was deducing. But was always painfully slow when there should have been a ‘fantastic’ or ‘amazing’ or ‘brilliant’’. When there should have been John, a second felt like an eternity.
He heard a voice.
“Sherlock, you need to wake up!”
It was so warm, inviting. Achingly familiar.
“Please Sherlock…” the Voice continued, “it’s been almost a month. Give me a sign you are somewhere in there.
Never Got to Say Goodbye - Chapter 2“What?” Sherlock all but yelled “Why didn't he tell me?”Never Got to Say Goodbye - Chapter 2 by crazyzukofangirl1280
“John said he did tell you. But you probably deleted it”
Sherlock’s anger at John vanished, John probably did tell him, but Sherlock deleted it. Why did he take that information as ‘useless’? Why? Why? Why?
Sherlock felt horror pierce through his veins.
“Why are you here?” Sherlock asked. “Why did John tell you to give me a message?”
Robert looked everywhere but at the Consulting Detective.
“Because…” Robert’s voice strained “because…”
Everything came to a screeching halt.
“What?” Sherlock’s voice was small. So so small.
“We got ambushed.” Robert explained, “He got shot, right in the heart, just as backup arrived. By the time we could get to him, nothing could be done.”
Never Got to Say Goodbye - Chapter 1There was a knock at the door.Never Got to Say Goodbye - Chapter 1 by crazyzukofangirl1280
“John?” Sherlock called, as he was in the middle of an experiment.
No answer. John must have left for work. Dull.
Sherlock answered the door. It was a young man, in his mid-20’s. Army. Not high rank. A Private.
“Sherlock Holmes?” the Private asked. His tone was riddled with uncertainty.
“What do you want?” Sherlock asked, “You aren't a client. Yet you are in the army and are wishing to speak to me.”
The young man cleared his throat.
“My name in Private Robert.” He said, voice strained even though he cleared it. “I have a message for you from Captain John Watson. He made me promise I tell you when I came home.”
“What?” Sherlock asked, “When did you speak to him”
“A few weeks ago.” Robert said.
“Why can’t he just tell me?” Sherlock, for a rare moment, was confused.
Robert gave a sigh, with a small laugh.
“He said you woul
Ursroh week:ZukoI used to be jealous of you, you know. You had such high priority with your mother, she would drop anything if you called out for her, including me. Actually, that did happen once. You see, your father was away, and we had spent the night together. Then you came knocking at her door, crying about a nightmare. Well, she made me get dressed and move over so you could fall asleep right in-between the grownups, and then she let you spend the night there. Although she had meant no offence, it was frustrating at the time, but looking back, its pretty amusing. But Im getting off track.Ursroh week:Zuko by fourfourfourfour
Anyway, I dont think I could ever forgive myself for feeling this, however many years ago, but I almost came to hate you, if only in a small moment of anger. A big contributor to that small moment was that your mother and I had talked about running away together, and taking you boys along (your sister had not yet been born, you see), but she wouldnt hear of it. Her reason was
Ursroh-Love+AffairLove was something strong between the two of them. No matter what would happen, they would still remain in love with each other. Of course, the worst they ever thought would happen was war that would divide them apart for a long time. Maybe death of one of them would be the worst. However, nothing could have prepared them for what was to happen.Ursroh-Love+Affair by paintedbluerose
The marriage was a sight to see. The perfect match in all ways. But not in love. She didnt love him. Not the same as she had Iroh. Still, for their love they continued with this masquerade. They would find a way. Their love was real; thats all that mattered to them.
In the dead of night she made her decision. For her, it was an easy one. Even if it did come with deadly consequences. If you love someone, you would do anything for that person. You would do anything to be with that person. Even if it meant death.
Do you know what you are doing? Iroh whispered in a hushed tone once he saw her.
Yes. I do. And I wouldn
