Anonymous asked: "Sherlock... What exactly were you doing in those two years away?"
Dismantling Moriarty’s web. Running away. Chasing the criminals. Thinking about you. Trying to focus on the work I knew I had to do because it was all for you. Dreaming about you. Hoping that when I come back, we’d make it right between us, because there’d be no one to keep us apart. Missing you. Accepting the fact that I may be just in love with you. Rehearsing the words I’d say to you when I come back hundreds of times. Imagining you were there beside me.
"I told you. Working."
