Deck The Skull With Boughs Of Holly 5
Title: Deck The Skull With Boughs Of Holly 5
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Prompt: Christmas Market
Despite the good start to the day, with Mycroft agreeing to Sherlock's Christmas party plans and even arranging the location and a distraction for John during the week leading up to it, the day nearly ended in disaster.
John had come home from work and Sherlock had suggested that they go to the Christmas market that was being held for the next few days.
John had agreed and off they'd gone. At first it was lovely, a huge decorated Christmas tree in the center, stalls with Christmas ornaments and other trinkets, people for Sherlock to observe and make sarcastic deductions that he whispered in John's ear, making the doctor laugh.
It was a perfect night. That was when Sherlock had deduced that John was hungry, so while John picked up some ornaments (a teapot, a medical bag, and a magnifying glass) for their tree, he'd gone to one of the food stalls.
He picked up some delicious smelling jam filled pastries and handed one to John.
He hadn't known John was allergic to grapes. John did all the shopping, cooking, and food selection most of the time.
John bit into the pastry and he'd gone pale. “Sherlock, we need to go to the medical tent, before I stop breathing, I'm allergic.”
Sherlock had rushed John to the tent, but by the time they got there, John was barely breathing.
John was on the couch, drinking tea. All should be fine, but Sherlock was miserable.
He hadn't known John was allergic to grapes and he should have. How could he not know this about his John? What if they'd been somewhere on a case? Somewhere without prompt medical attention? John could have...
His thoughts were interrupted by John hugging him.
“It's okay Sherlock,” John said as he led Sherlock to the couch, “It's all fine.”
Sherlock allowed himself to be soothed by John's closeness and warmth. John was fine. He was okay and the detective would make sure that grapes, or anything grape related never made it near his John.
“You're not allergic to anything else are you?” he demanded.
“Nope, just grapes.” John answered as he reached for the remote.
The classic animated Christmas movie about the green fluffy thing that hated people and Christmas was on.
It was at the song, the only Christmas song Sherlock liked...
“You're a mean one... Mr. Grinch...”
