Jim wanders into the bar from out back, humming under his breath, leading Buster Bonehead, and looking very amused. 

Really, it shouldn't be allowed for anyone to look that pleased with themselves.


Bonehead has his bat in his mouth, but he keeps dropping it and turning in circles, before seeming to notice it and pick it up again. Jim slouches into a booth and ties him to the table leg, where he proceeds to lie down and whine, then start licking the floor.


Jim rolls his eyes, and orders a Caesar salad for dinner. He'd prefer to go home, but that might involve cooking. Gross.

Jim Moriarty looking this pleased with himself is never a good sign of anything. Although, perhaps as long as he's looking pleased with himself here, there's a chance that whatever irritating thing he's doing will stay here, and not become Mycroft's problem.

"Dare I ask?" he says as he approaches.

For a fleeting second, he considers sitting, until he spots the dog. He wrinkles his nose at the creature and makes sure he doesn't get too close, lest it get dog particulates all over him.

"I never took you as a dog person."

Especially a dog like this one. Why is it licking the floor? Gross.

Hmm. Of course there's a dead person involved. When isn't there?

Ugh.

"Surely, we've progressed past such formalities?"

Mycroft finally sits, but not at Jim's booth, and nowhere near the dog. There's a nearby table, which he commandeers for himself. It's far enough away from Jim and the dog, but close enough to be able to still engage in a civil conversation.

Rude. Mycroft isn't sure if he wants to roll his eyes or sneer. He winds up doing neither, choosing instead to pretend he didn't hear that. Giving Jim a reaction would only make him worse.

"All routine, as I'm sure you already know."

Well, routine as far as people like Jim Moriarty are concerned. As Jim also probably already knows.

Mycroft wonders if Jim thinks his little show actually makes him uncomfortable. He's sure it must make some people uncomfortable, or else Jim wouldn't do it.

Or maybe he would. Who knows? Mycroft doesn't really care.

"So, go on then. You seem to be revelling in something. I'm just dying to know what." He says this with as little inflection as possible.

Mycroft continues to ignore Jim's use of that horrible nickname. It was bound to come about sooner or later, but honestly.

"One can always hope," he says.

Though, if Jim isn't just itching to give some sort of hint, then it probably isn't anything that's going to have anything to do with Mycroft. Which is good.

Not good for whoever it does involve, but good for Mycroft is always the best option.

That gets a very tired-sounding sigh.

"Believe me, that's a good thing."

Good for everyone; not just Mycroft.

"Dumbles!"

Coral runs over to Buster, to give him snuggles.

"Where've you been, boy?!" she asks, wrapping her arms around him.

Coral looks around.

"Then we have to tell Mr Warfstache." she says. "He's his daddy."

"Then who did he put as Dumbles' guardian?" Coral asks. "After we weren't allowed to do it any more."

She keeps making gentle, reassuring noises to Buster.

"Has he been eating things he shouldn't? He's got a special diet."

"Oh. What did the vet say?" Coral asks. "And what's your name?"

"Yes." Coral says.

"But why does he look sick today? We looked after him for weeks and he never looked like this, even when he got into Fry's Wotsits and ate the whole bag."

Coral scritches Buster behind the ears.

"I don't mean this in a rude way, but are you a burglar?" she asks Jim.
