(Come on, people, this is just a filler)
Please don't get mad at me for hogging! I wanna find out what
Lestrade had absolutely no idea where she was. All she knew was
that she had been running forever and was absolutely exhausted.
"Beth. Where are you going? Don't you want to see me again?" An
icy voice from behind her sent shivers down the inspector's back.
Lestrade turned around slowly, trying to remember if she was
carrying a knife.
The Dragon Lady smiled at her. "You do remember me, don't you?
I know you've been busy with bringing back that dead detective of
yours and all, but you've always had such a good memory."
"What do you want?"Beth hissed quietly, trying to keep the
tremor out of her voice.
"Oh, just revenge, my dear girl, just revenge."
"Yeah, whatever. I mean, geez, you're getting to sound just as
theatrical as Moriarty. He's always saying the same things over and
over, and you know what? Watson, Holmes and I are still alive! Funny,
isn't it?" Lestrade regained her self-composure in an instant.
"Don't mock me, girl; you know I could crush you in a second.
I was, after all, the one who taught you all you know."
"Ya, you taught me how ta hurt people. I already knew most of
what I needed to know, to do what I was going to do."
"You would be just as useless now as you were twelve years ago,
if it weren't for me. And look how you repaid me, by putting my gang
"The only reason I put them away was because of what you did to
my parents. You were the only person on that list I never got back at!"
"I'm also the only person that list you will never get back at."
"I'm not even gonna bother arguing with you. You're too
theatrical." And with that, Lestrade ran. She knew it was pointless,
but she had done a lot of pointless things in her life. And she was
still alive, so it was worth a chance.
There you go! Now I am completely out of creative juices.
See ya 'round!
