Chapter 4. - Mycroft in despair
PREQUEL: SEXY SIRENS CLUB - PART 3.
Motto: ' What you do in this world is a matter of no consequence.
The question is what can you make people believe you have done.’
Across the street Moriarty’s henchmen kept an eye on the rooftop window since Sherlock entered the building. The light was suddenly switched on. They saw Nedi Ran as she took off the dark blue nigh-gown. She stood in her night-dress as England’s most famous detective passionately embraced her from behind and kissed her neck. Nedi Ran smiled and pulled down the white spring blinds. The henchmen could see her silhouette. She sat on the table, with her back towards the window. Sherlock came closer to her, they snogged and he began to move.
’They’re making love. At least we have a little excitement.’ – one of the henchmen said.
’No wonder. This guy will die today. If I had the opportunity to choose before my death, having sex would be my option too.’ answered the other one.
’He could've chosen a hottie with bigger boobs.’
The two men laughed.
At Pall Mall Mycroft was enjoying the last drops of his glass of Tokaji. His cellphone suddenly rang. He listened carefully.
’What? Sherlock and Nedi Ran? Are you sure?…. Where? In the Sexy Sirens Club? At her flat?…. Really?…..You confirm that? Yes? Well….. I want surveillance cameras and reports. You know that Sherlock Holmes is in danger.’
His agent did as he was ordered and made photos with his cellphone. Some other agents watched the building.
The news distracted Mycroft’s contemplation. He was puzzled. He rubbed his temple with his hands.
’Sherlock and a woman? Nedi Ran with a man, of her own free will? Him and her together? That’s insane!’
’This is yours.’ - He was leaning close to her face.
’I'm bored.’ - complained Nedi Ran.
’Just four minutes passed yet. Don’t compromise male potency!’ - Sherlock answered. They both were dressed, only miming having sex.
’I hate this.’
'Do not complain! You sit comfortably, while I stand and move. I work harder... Ok... Be patient, and you will enjoy it soon.’
’If you dare to touch me, I kill you!’ - she retorted.
Sherlock took a small bottle from his pocket.
’I brought another one as well. My experience is that women tend to be greedy about perfume.’
’Is that opium?’
’Yes, Black Opium.’ - Sherlock let her smell it.
’Oh, that’s frenetic! Hey, don’t take it away! Give me some more! Yes, that’s it!’
He put the small bottle in her hand. She smelled it again.
’Let me enjoy it too.’ – he asked. She smiled and did what he requested.
’Give me more!’ - he said.
Nedi Ran started to laugh.
’This is so absurd! You are totally crazy.’
’Though this be madness, yet there is method in’t. And you are also crazy.’
’You should know that I still abhor you…. You intruder.’
'You….you’re Mycroft’s hireling.’
’I hate you.’
’You repel me.’
’You repel me even more.’
’No more than you repel me.’
The intoxicating smell of Black Opium surrounded them.
Mycroft stared at the monitor gloomily. He used his immense power to check Sherlock’s account turnover.
’There it is….A large sum, just a few moments after midnight. He gave money for Nedi Ran, at least she was paid. But…. Sherlock and sex?…… After all, Irene Adler turned his brain as well…. But him and Nedi Ran living together? Nothing good will spring from that…. He should relax, he has to be ready for the great action! Damn! He wants to have some fun before he dies? We have planned everything together, and I do anything for him, yet my own brother doesn’t trust me!’ His eyes were full of sadness.
My friend buttoned up his coat. He took a knife out of his pocket. He squeezed its hilt between his teeth. Nedi Ran was still sitting on the table, playing on her cellphone. Sherlock has forced her thighs open and stabbed the knife into the table.
’You have to keep our bargain private.
You can be a treacherous spy, but if you cause
Mycroft or John any trouble, I kill you.
And your death will be painfully slow.’
Nedi Ran recoiled in horror. Sherlock turned away with a cold face and headed for the door. He remarked:
’Come! This is the last step.’
The rear exit of the bar slammed out. One of Britain’s most famous personalities darted out angrily and put his deerstalker on. The door opened again and a woman rushed after him, wearing only a night-dress.
’Sherlock! You promised to marry me if I do it!’
’I’m not that crazy!’ - he yelled back. He didn’t even turn around.
’You dirty bastard! You used me! Pay something at least! Son of a bitch! It was awful! Your brother would have been much better!’
Sherlock suddenly stopped. He rushed back to Nedi Ran, took her by the throat and pressed her against the wall. She gasped.
’That’s enough! … Don’t live yourself into it that much!’ - he hissed quietly. ’Have a nice day!’
He winked, let her go and left.
The rejected woman turned and she was confronted by the striptease dancers.
’I was wrong, Nedi Ran. You don’t even worth a pound.’ - laughed Monica. ’He doesn’t even want you for free.’
The other girls agreed.
She clinched her fists.
’I’ll give it to you! I kill you, Monica!’
Nedi Ran chased the screaming and laughing girls inside.
Mycroft got a new message. He saw a muted video. His brother had a quarrel with a woman, pressed her to the wall, they had a few words then he left. The wise Holmes was half relieved. ’The order of the world starts to settle again.’- he stated.

Motto: ' What you do in this world ... '
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: A Study in Scarlet
Sherlock cites a line from Hamlet: ' Though this be madness, yet there is method in't. '
When Watson makes a list of the detective's strengths and weaknesses in A Study in Scarlet, he wrotes: ' Knowledge of Literature: Nil ' - But throughout the Canon Holmes cites different writings, what shows that in reality he was a well-read man.
MISBELIEFS: Watson always describes Holmes precisely
Short article: Sherlock Holmes characterization
The wine Mycroft is enjoying is called Tokaji. It's a world-famous sweet white wine from Hungary. The name originates from the town (Tokaj) and the wine region (Tokaj-Hegyalja) where sweet wines are made from grapes affected by noble rot. Wines that are produced in the Tokaj wine region in Slovakia are also called tokaji. The sweet wines made in these wine regions have different names, depending on the grape varieties they are made from, but they can also be referred to as Tokaji - a rich, sweet, aromatic white wine.
