Oh business, that was adorable. Really it was. "Oh please, I can do that in my sleep. They really do line up to worship me, you have no idea. And the ones that don't, run. Or die, but you know, natural selection and all that. I suppose I'll need to expand eventually but one thing at a time, y'know." he told her, still focused entirely on her even as she pulled back from him. He'd had one person as his only focus for a while now. One person that matched his intellect, awoke his curiousity, a person who could maybe, maybe just beat him at his own game. It was a pity really that he was proving so dreadfully boringly ordinary. He'd have to step things up soon. He'd give it some time, let things settle from the chaos the Master had left, and then the targets would start to get targeted. No kidnappings, nothing so dull.
Sherlock deserved better.
He kissed her again, in a moment where he needed to find focus before plans overtook his mind, wheels within wheels, turning and twisting down a long path to an even longer fall. "It's going to be beautiful you know, and I understand, you don't want it. You want me, without the vendetta, without needing to see him die. But it has to happen. I have to make him fall. And darling, I'll do it, because I know exactly what makes that man tick. I know who to hurt and precisely how. And when its done, and when he falls...well..."
It was like a symphony in his mind, he couldn't help it. But for now, he needed her to focus on him which meant putting the plans away for now.
"Nothing will happen to you. Or the city will burn. Do you understand, slowly and painfully, they'll all just...go. And I'll start with Lucifer's favourite chew toy. And keep at it until you come back to me." Of course he'd do the same if the blasted thing took Sherlock before he saw the great man fall. But she didn't need to know that. She just needed to know that there was nothing he wouldn't do to have her.
"Now!" he said his expression going from dangerous to excitable in seconds. "We have dinner, we have an entire evening to do whatever we might want with it. Any ideas Miss Swan?"
