John Watson had always known that Sherlock Holmes was anything by predictable; a quality that John had become used to since meeting the taller boy on their first day of St Barts and then getting dragged across London to a crime scene three hours later.

So it didn't come as a surprise when Sherlock didn't show up for English that day or any of the other classes that they shared together. When John asked Molly he was given the answer that he had been expecting: Sherlock hadn't been in any of her classes either.

Sherlock skiving off classes was nothing new; he had done it before, but he had never skipped a whole day of school before.

Annoyed John stormed through the hallways, pushing through the crowds roughly and unapologetic and across the school grounds until he spotted the familiar silhouette leaning against the wall of one of the science buildings. John strode across the grounds until he was standing in front of Sherlock.

Tall, dark haired and with a cigarette hanging loosely from his lips, he would have reminded John of a Greaser from the Outsiders if Sherlock hadn't been clothed in his school uniform.

'Where the hell have you been?'

Sherlock didn't say a word, instead he interlocked their fingers and pulled John along behind him, ignoring John's blush.
