UNTOUCHABLE

I found out quite by accident. I put my hand on his arm when we’d left his brother at the Diogenes Club. Mycroft had been his usual sarcastic self and Holmes left in a fit of pique. He’d jerked away as if my touch had burned him. I said nothing at all, just got in the hansom with him and rode in silence back to Baker Street.

Once at home, he’d lit up a cigarette and stared out the window for a long while, whether due to Mycroft’s words or my touch, I don’t know.

I won’t touch him again.
