It was a Saturday morning. Mari was lying in bed and rolled over to her side to find Sherlock surprisingly still asleep. He had been working on cases constantly over the last two weeks without a rest. Mari decided to squeeze herself up to him.

"Morning Sherlock"

Sherlock opened his eyes. He twisted his head and saw her lying next to him. He gave her a kiss on the forehead.

"Happy birthday" He replied

Mari looked a little surprised because Sherlock never celebrated anything but since Mari came into his life, a few things changed. Sherlock started respecting others slightly more, especially if they were Mari's friends. Apart from Anderson who was still annoying as ever.

Mari smiled and rested her head on his chest.

"You remembered then"

"Of course I did." He placed his left hand on her arm and started stroking it.

They just laid there, enjoying each other's warmth for a while.
