This little piece of work here will be written in 100-word snippets except for every 10th chapter, which will be 1000 words, just to make it last a little longer. The prompts I'm using are LJ's 100colors.

Bean There Done That

There was one coffee shop that Sherlock Holmes favored, not for its coffee but for its absolutely mouthwatering tea. Now, he did enjoy a coffee from time to time, but his first and true love when it came to Bean There Done That's various beverages was their Earl Grey.

Over time, Bean There's cocoa-colored chairs had become occupied by university students, but they kept quiet, which was all he needed. There was a regular barista there who knew exactly what he liked and how he liked it.

However, one night after an uncharacteristically stressful case, his barista wasn't there.

Color was prompt #54: cocoa.
