The Case Of the Missing Bear
Title: The Case Of the Missing Bear
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Pairings: None really. John and Sherlock are Toddlers.
Prompt: Teddy Bear
Notes: The First drabble in my new drabble series because Kid John and Kid Sherlock were too adorable to be let go off but I didn't want them fully taking over my other drabble series "Say Your Right Words". John and Sherlock are both the same age in this series and childhood friends :-)
Bear was missing. John was crying in the park as he looked for Bear. He needed Bear. Without Bear how would he sleep? What would keep his nightmares away? He'd looked away to see the plane in the sky and when he looked back, Bear was gone.
As he looked around for his missing teddy bear, John came across something that would change his life for ever. Another boy, about his age, with dark curly hair was being bullied by kids that were about two years older and already in school.
The older kids were making the younger kid cry and they were holding his Bear with its head torn off! "You thought you could stop us..." One of the older kids was taunting and it looked like he was about to hit the other boy...
John threw the first thing he came across, a discarded soda can, which hit the boy about to hit the curly haired boy in the stomach. The boy began to cry and he and his friends started to run towards John, but John grabbed the curly haired boy and managed to get them to safety or at least where the adults sat talking and not really paying attention to the kids at play.
It was enough to get the older kids away because beating up on toddlers was a bit not good.
"Thanks," the other boy said.
John smiled and introduced himself.
"I'm Sherlock," the gray-eyed boy said. "I've seen you here before and you always cradle the teddy bear, but your sister hid him from you as a prank. I wanted to find him for you so you'd maybe play with me? But.. you might not want to play with me, since I couldn't stop them."
John's face fell at the mention of his bear but he did want to play with Sherlock.
"Wanna play on the swings?" John asked.
Sherlock nodded. An hour later they were fast friends, giggling and making plans to meet in the park tomorrow during their play time.
John was called in first and reluctantly said goodbye to his new friend. He told his Mum all about his adventures and Harriet who was older than John's 3 and ½ was punished for her part in Bear's death.
John had a restless night, his nightmares were back and his only comfort was gone. His parents had drank the icky smelling stuff until they were so asleep they wouldn't wake up... and Harriet was mad at him.
The next day, he met Sherlock at the park. Sherlock was holding a stuffed bear that was different than bear, softer and more fuzzy, and he handed the bear to John.
"I don't use my bear anymore, you can have it." Sherlock said shyly.
"Thanks," John said. He named the bear Holmes and because of both Sherlock and Holmes he didn't have a nightmare that night or the night after that, or the night after that...
