For their first anniversary, Sherlock Holmes doesn't send John Watson flowers.
He's not really a flowers kind of man. Flowers are a bit boring, and they'd never find anywhere in the flat to put them. Besides, John much prefers rooftop chases and fixing limps as gestures of romance.
No, John Watson doesn't get any flowers on their one-year anniversary. Nor any anniversary after that.
But every year, at the same time on the same day, a man opens his door to find a dozen red roses on his doorstep without a note or a notion of why.
And every year, at the same time on the same day, those flowers make Mike Stamford smile.
