Summary: Mrs. Brown's tenants always only stay for a few weeks and they all have the same reason to leave.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mrs. Brown sighs tiredly as she watches her latest tenant packing up his things. For the last twelve months no tenant of hers stayed longer than six weeks, all of them quickly realising that there will be no peace found in her house.
And that is all the fault of her neighbor's tenants or one of the tenants at the least. She can not understand how Mrs. Hudson can stand all that chaos.

The doctor is a fine gentleman with good manners and a good heart, but Mr. Holmes... His behaviour drives almost everyone insanse with his horrible smelling experiments, his indoor shooting, his caterwauling on his violin or his suspicious visitors. It is already unbearable living in the house beside his flat, Mrs. Brown has no idea how Mrs. Hudson and especially the doctor can live with him in the same house.

Only moments later does her tenant bid her goodbye and hasten away down the street, leaving her standing alone in her entrance. Mrs. Brown shakes her head and is about to turn away closing her door, when she hears the door of 221b open. She looks over and sees how the doctor steps out chuckling, followed by Mr. Holmes who is sorely scolded by Mrs. Hudson. When he makes a sharp remark he gets a swat with Mrs. Hudson's towel on the shoulder and Dr. Watson laughs out loud. After a few more words the two men start to stroll down the street arm in arm and Mrs. Hudson looks after them with a fond smile for a moment, before going back inside.

While she can never understand as to why Mr. Holmes behaves so curiously, she just might start to understand why Dr. Watson and Mrs. Hudson tolerate it. But just barely, she snorts and goes back inside, closing the door to No. 221a.
