Where Are You?

It only took Holmes and Watson twenty minutes to reach from Baker Street
what were supposed to be abandoned warehouses. They decided to split up and
each take one of the two energy-supplied warehouses. Holmes took number seven
and Watson got number two.
As Holmes searched for number seven his thoughts were of Lestrade. ĎMoriarty
had better not have done anything to Lestrade, or heíll pay.í Holmes paused for a
second, wondering where that had come from. Shaking it off, he continued his search.
Slowly opening the door to number seven (Holmes didnít want it to creak), he
was able to slip inside without a sound. Once inside the door he hid behind a
bundle of crates. He had a clear view of the space, which contained two offices
and a huge storage space; and in the far corner Holmes saw Lestrade. He could
also see that she was attached with handcuffs to a U-shaped pipe that had both
sides in the pavement. There seemed to be no other people present but Holmes
stayed alert for any movement.
Lestrade looked over the space, trying to find anything she could use to her
advantage. She would get Moriarty out here, get him to set her free by falsely
agreeing to his previous plan, then arrest him. But first she needed to find
something she can use as a weapon.
Just then Lestrade found Holmesís eyes in the stack of crates in the other
far corner near the door. She could feel her heart palpitate a little faster.
Holmes smiled at her and she became relieved, knowing that he was there.
Everything seemed quiet, so Holmes slowly made his way to where Lestrade
was. When he reached her he got out his lockpicking set out of his coat and got
"Are you all right? Where is Moriarty?" whispered Holmes as he was working
to free her from her bonds.
"Iím all right, besides a sore head from being knocked out. Moriarty went
into the room over there," Lestrade replied just as quietly as Holmes, so no
one could hear them.
The room she indicated was one of the offices. Holmes looked over just as
he finished freeing her hands. He was just about to start on her feet when the
door to that office opened and out walked Moriarty.
"Iíve come to see if you have changed your mind about my...." Moriarty
stopped dead in his spot and speech when he saw Holmes. "Holmes." Moriarty
gave Holmes a look of pure agitation.
Holmes handed Lestrade his picklocks so she could finish freeing herself
and he straightened up. Moriarty and Holmes stared at each other in a silent
battle of minds.
Lestrade was able to get her feet free just as she saw Moriarty move his
right hand and bring out his ionizer. Before Holmes could respond the shot went off.
Lestrade dove towards Holmes and they both landed on the floor. Just then
Watson (who had found nothing and came looking for Holmes) ran in and fired at
Moriarty, stunning him.
Holmes looked at Lestrade, who now was on top of him from saving him from
Moriarty's ionizer fire. She opened her eyes and looked at him. They both
got up and Lestrade suddenly felt a fiery, sharp pain surge down her arm into
her fingertips. Reaching back of her left shoulder she felt something strange;
when she withdrew her hand she saw a large quantity of blood displayed on it.
Right before she fainted she looked at Holmes, who also saw the blood on her
hand. She saw a look of dread and worry on his face, then everything turned black.
