Run Boy Run
by CaffieneKitty


Left or right, John pelted along dim-lit alley, swift footfalls and cruel laughter cacophonous behind him. The alley's T-junction end loomed. Bloody hell, left or right!

He didn't have Sherlock's map of London in his head. He barely remembered which streets this alley connected. A flicker of blue light brightened the right side wall. Cursing, John swung wide right.

Anytime now. He ran past another fire escape ladder. Not up. Not today. In fact, right now'd be good.

Something spun past his head, a bottle, smashing on the brick wall. More laughter. Too close. He sped up. Now would be very very good.

Between buildings to his left, John caught a glimpse of blue and yellow battenburg. Oh brilliant. About bloody time.

Ahead the alley ended with an abrupt left turn. The jeering voices and running feet behind him were far too close. John caromed off the brick wall into the left turn, then out between the police vehicles forming the cordon. His pursuers spewed forth from the alley straight into the arms of the waiting Met, too intent on pursuit to stop.

John, huffing in the alley opposite safely behind the blue-white flashing cordon, enjoyed the view. "Gotcha."

Sherlock emerged from the darkness. "I expected you twenty seconds earlier. I thought they might have caught you."

"Yeah? Well. Next time," John panted, "you can be the bait."

-.-
(that's all)

The sad part? John really, really liked doing that.

Nice twist ending!

Action!John FTW! The pace (if you'll forgive the pun) of this fic was excellent, and I love the ending. :)

Sherlock's version of Tag is pretty extreme. :)

Sherlock's version of everything is pretty extreme, I think.

That's great ! Well written and a very nice ending. Makes me think that somebody should make a fanvid with this song.

I'd be surprised if it hasn't been used for a vid for one fandom or another yet. It would suit so many of them.

Oh John. Like you didn't enjoy the heck out of that. ;-) Nice!
