“Christ, Mike, I think he’s in love with me,” John says, then drops his forehead on the bar.
Mike takes a long swallow of beer, then eyes John a bit more closely. “What the hell makes you think that? He’s not … I mean, not that I don’t like the bloke, I mean, I do, but really. Sherlock? You sure you don’t still have concussion issues?”

They’d all heard stories about sailors who’d been taken by pirates on the border islands, how beautiful young men or women were used to lure the unwary into deserted back alleys, where they’d be robbed and killed – if they were lucky. John wasn’t lucky. He knew that even before the sharp blow against his skull dropped him into darkness.
