Tales and Prayers of a Discerning Man

By whirligigkat

Drama

Que Onda Guero

A/N: A series of One-shots, inspired by Pickwick 12's "Snapshots of Sherlock". This was put together by going into my iTunes and putting it on shuffle: you are allowed only the amount of time for each track is to write a one-shot, with no editing (besides grammar) allowed. I might also add that I am a classical musician so there will be a LOT of classical music. This is a short little one, but there will be more, and longer! Enjoy!

"Que Onda Guero" - Beck, 3:29

"Sherlock?..!"

Footsteps pound up the staircase, cheerful shouts. Not a 'honey, I'm home!" but queries on burned experiments, burned hairs, burned eyeballs floating in orange mugs in dirty microwaves. Something queer, something a little, off. The skull on the mantelpiece chatters in agreement to the rhythm of manic urgency: Wherefore, Whyfore? Coats swirl, scarves are donned.

SLAM.
