So now, here he was, happily talking with a beautiful girl named Alice, and all thanks to the evil chip-and-pin machine. Alice was in her mid-twenties, tall (at least compared to John), with long hair the color of coffee, and caramel-colored eyes. She was a real estate agent, and her nose wrinkeled up when she laugh. That was apparently enough to have John besotted with her, [i]which should be embarrassing[/i], he reflected to himself, [i]but then again, it has been awhile since I've gone on any sort of date.[/i]
Just when John thought the evening was going perfectly, his phone chimed with an incoming text. John closes his eyes, he knows the text is from Sherlock- who else would it be from?- and he really, REALLY does not want this night ruined by his obnoxious friend (who at best is bored and has decided that it is John's job to entertain him, at worst is texting to say he has finally managed to burn down the flat).
Alice asks if he is going to check the text, John sighs and pulls out his phone.
[i]Come to Baker Street now, if convenient. -SH[/i]
John gives an annoyed smirk, waiting for the inevitable follow up. It comes in within seconds.
[i]If inconvenient, come anyways. -SH[/i]
John snorts, and types out a reply.
[b]Sherlock, I am on a date, what is it that is so bloody important you needed to interrupt me? No, I am not leaving, I'm not your pet to call home whenever you feel like it. Now please, bugger off.[/b]
After a thought, John types out another message.
[b]Also, may I remind you of the rule- no texting me while at work or on a date unless it's an emergency. Unless you or another person is at immediate risk of dying, you should not be texting me. If this is an emergency, give details, don't just summon me.
((Ok, so if someone wants to take over Sherlock and text back, please do!!! Also would be happy for someone to write as Alice (or any future girlfriends who may or may not come up in this). I'm not too picky about timeline- probably somewhere between The Great Game and Reichenbach. No other real specifications. I'm hoping for this to be a slower build up to a relationship, not just an automatic jump into sex, though Sherlock is welcome to come up with as many devious plots to drive John insane as his brilliant mind can come up with)).
