Summary: The equality of their professions.

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

It is late when Watson returns and Holmes leaves the living room to greet his flatmate in the hallway. Only for Watson to tell him to keep his distance, his mouth covered with his handkerchief.
"I am sorry, Holmes, but I had to treat the child," he explains and turns to go up the stairs to his own bedroom. "Now I will have to stay in my room and neither of you can enter, Holmes, please tell Mrs. Hudson. It should pass within a few days, there is no need to worry."

Holmes watches the doctor going up to his room and when Mrs. Hudson comes up with a tray of food he takes it from her. "There should be no need to worry," he tells her softly as she looks worriedly up the stairs. "Just a few days of rest and everything should be alright. If anyone should ask for me over the next couple of days tell them I am busy and send them away. I will take care of Watson."

With those words he goes up the second set of stairs, his mind made up the moment Watson followed the distressed call earlier in the evening.
If they share the danger of his chosen profession, then they will share the burden of Watson's as well.
