John Watson was finally returning to 221B, after an interminable visit to a woman ill with pneumonia, when he saw a small boy running towards him.
"Dr Watson! Oh Dr. Watson, I'm so glad I found you!"
The green eyes on the poor boy were the very manifestation of stress
"What is the matter Billy?"
"Someone attacked Mr. Holmes and he's at St. Barts! Only he was too worried 'bout you, he keep struggling, so I ran here"
"Come Billy, hurry, fetch a cab!"
Two days later, when Holmes was on the safe side of medicine, the good Doctor returned home to rest for a moment and refresh himself before going back to the hospital.
Only then, when he had taken a bath and was about to head out, did he notice a small note, pinned on his bedroom door.
