A/n: This was going to be a 221, but I found it much more effective in 100 words. So I thought, heck, let's start a new collection. ^^ It goes like this: 100 chapters, 100 words each, starting with this one-- "breakfast" and moving straight on through the dictionary. I haven't looked at the dictionary yet, so this is going to be interesting...eh heh...anyway...

"It's not serious, Madam, I assure you," I said calmly, catching Holmes under the arms as he collapsed. "Would you be so kind as to bring some tea with sugar—oh, a damp cloth too."

Presently I was alone, and so picked up the cloth and bathed Holmes' pale face, wet with perspiration. He blinked his eyes open and looked at me. "Watson?"

I sighed, settling the cloth on his forehead and picking up the tea. "Did I not tell you to eat breakfast?"
