A/N: Yep, another chapter! I meant to update a bit sooner but I've been busy studying for exams... Anyway, thanks for everyone's support in the past and I am glad to see people are still following this fic! For this chapter: the piggy bank looks like the one from Ouran High School Host Club that little Kaoru and Hikaru had in the anime, I imagine (if anyone knows what that is). Also, I think John does a good imitation of Sherlock.

xxxviii. Shopping

"Sherlock, I'm going out."

"Get milk."

"Just because I'm going to Tesco for milk does not mean I am your personal slave, Sherlock."

"And embalming fluid."

"I'll see you later. Go to bed, it's late."

"Three-ply toilet paper."


"Back so soon?"

"…Couldn't get a taxi."

"Tsk - Ouch!"

"Oi you, just because you're some sort of talented cab-producing magician, doesn't mean everyone is."

"I'm simply tall."


"And you're short."

"Hey. Come with me, then?"

"What? No, I'm busy."

"Sure, let's go John!"

"I don't sound like that!"

"Sure you don't. C'mon."


"What's that?"

"I don't know, Sherlock. Let's g-don't touch it! What if it breaks?"

"It's a porcelain coin-bank shaped like a bird."

"If you knew, than why the hell did you ask?"

"Touchy, touchy. I'm curious, isn't the traditional shape for this sort of thing a pig?"


"So why is it-"


"You don't know what I was going to ask!"

"Yes I do. Now come on, milk."

"Wait, what's that?"

"Please tell me you know what the Flintstones are."


"And the genius strikes again. Wow, sticking your tongue out, Sherlock? Real mature. You're so adult."

"You're so pedestrian!"

"I'm insulted."

"You should be."

"I'm being sarcastic. You know what, you stay here and look at the shit on this clearance rack and I'll go buy stuff we can eat."




"Well, that was eventful. Did you really need to tell the cashier her fiancé is cheating on her?"

"It's not my fault, he is."

"I think we need to have the empathy talk again."


"Then keep your tongue next time, will you?"

"There will be no next time. That was hideously boring."

"I have to agree with you there, and - wait, Sherlock. Oh my god."


"You bought that bird."


"For a decoration on our nightstand."


"And I suppose you snuck it in when I wasn't looking during checkout."


"Why am I not surprised? Goodnight."


A/N: More fluff! I know, updates and fluff? Wow! No, really, sorry for the wait again; I really hope you enjoyed it and please review!

DarthJackie - Haha, well, he's not very socially inclined^^'. And yeah, 112 is a normal number?

Quend - Thank you! Sorry about the confusion; I'm glad it was fluffy enough! As for bed sharing, it's just bed time - John is in the living room. Sorry about that.

apple-badge - Yay to you too! :P Thanks love.
