Logical Necessity

The house's door is open. The man sitting inside has enough enemies that active suicide would be redundant.

The man's eyes are closed, but his voice is neither surprised nor hesitant. Why?

Holmes needs a Watson, answers the boy, and prays silently to London for a crime.
More tongue in check than otherwise...

Rating: PG13

Mary Morstan had reason enough to hate Holmes. It was his damnable blackmail what had turned her small role in a scam into the long sentence of being a Doctor's wife. Not being an admirer of the famous detective, it gave her no pleasure to be perhaps the only person who knew how far he would go to make sure his friend had a glad heart.

She often thought she should have chosen prison over the altar.
