I’ve forgotten something “important” again, haven’t I?

I can tell by John’s slightly disappointed expression as he leaves the flat.

But he can’t seriously expect me to want to join him and his dreadfully boring friends for a pint after he gets off tonight, can he?

Why did he even bother to ask?

He knows my answer. It has always and will always be decidedly no.

In fact, he stopped asking me such trivial things ages ago.

I thought he’d learned.

Oh, well.

I suppose even John forgets himself sometimes.

But my intentions today do not involve leaving Baker Street.

I have important experiments to conduct.

I put John out of my mind and get started. It’s not until many hours later, when my brother rudely interrupts one of said experiments, that I remember John’s odd request.

It’s the slip of red in Mycroft’s pocket that does it.

I focus on it and feel my eyes slide closed as I sigh.

Mycroft sees my reaction to his ornament and speaks slowly.

“Yes, well. I’ll just be going then, shall I?” he says, and I wave him away with one hand.

He gives me that condescending smile of his and departs, his errand done.

Today is Remembrance Day, isn’t it?

And I’ve forgotten. Today is Remembrance Day, and John was, no, is  a soldier.

Oh, bollocks.
