A Relative Close By
by yearofthedragon (poptate12 at hotmail.com)
Hi, everyone!! Before I start the Inuyasha/Sh22 x-over I want to post up
the other chapter to this fic. It's getting too darn quiet around here!!^_^
Here's Chapter 2 of A Relative Close By...
A/N I decided not to make it a crossover just yet. I'll wait until the sequel.
On to Chapter 3!
Holmes could find absolutely no new angle to the case, but he did
have a few theories. He decided that some fresh air (as fresh as
air you could find in the 22nd century) would be useful in
speeding the mental processes of his brain.
He grabbed his inverness cape from the rack by the door and left,
having no particular place in mind.
That was when he had ungracefully bumped into someone.
The first thing Pride saw was a hand, a hand with long, thin
fingers. Her brain registered that whoever she had bumped into
must be trying to help her up. Probably a gentlemen. She fought
the urge to roll her eyes, but gladly accepted the man's help as
she was already late for school.
"I'm sorry, sir. I guess I was running too fast and wasn't looking
where I was going," she managed to say while she picked up all
the news articles that lay abandoned on the sidewalk.
One of Holmes eyebrows shot up. This young girl lookied to be
about thirteen but he hadn't yet had a chance to see her face. She
spoke with an American accent, which he had somehow gotten used
to, spending case after case with Lestrade.
Another thing that caught his eye was the pile of newspaper
clippings she seemed to be gathering. How long had it been since
the world used newspapers?
He bent down to help her gather the remaining pieces of paper.
She slowly looked up and gasped, but said nothing.
Holmes was rather amused to say the least. Its seemed as if this
girl had heard of him, obviously from the news, though, Gregson
tried not to give him credit, but this girl was a reporter
judging from the camera and electronic notepad.
Her chocolate brown eyes matched perfectly with the almost
unnoticable chocolate brown highlights in her raven hair. Her
skin was overly tannish, but natural.
"Oi, Ae raheen ho or kya?" A distant shout echoed in a foreign
tongue seemed to break the daze. It was a low voice signaling a
Startled, the girl gathered her things and gave a yell,"HA!!!".
After a quick side glance at Holmes, she ran off.
A/N: So how'd you like??? ^_^
The translation to the sentence is "Oi, Are you coming or what?"
And "Ha" means 'yes'.
Hope you enjoy!!!
