Parentlock Rosie's Lullaby It was 7pm at 221b Baker Street. The moon was shining brightly and the silence of the cars drove down the street.Inside the flat, inside Sherlock's room, John Watson was getting ready to go to an army reunion party and meet up with some of his old friends he knew. As John put on his army jacket and looked at himself in the mirror he wasn't sure that Sherlock could manage raising Rosie and after going through losing Mary and moving in at Baker Street, he still wasn't sure if he made the right choices.As John took one final glance in the mirror, Sherlock calls to John" John the taxi's almost here you ready? John says "I'm coming". As John walks out of Sherlock's room he opens the door of bedroom very quietly and looks at Rosie sleeping peacefully in her cradle. John smiles and blows a kiss to her and then walks into the living room seeing Sherlock working on his computer. Sherlock notices John in his army uniform and says to John, "You look great". John says thanks and asks Sherlock " Are you sure you can look after Rose while I'm gone? We've should have got Molly to join you. Sherlock then stands up and says" You listen to me John Watson. When you and Mary welcomed Rosie into the world, you personally asked me to be godfather and so far I'm doing great. Sure you should me how to hold her, give her a milk bottle and show what baby monitors do but look. When Mary passed away, we both made a vow to raise Rosemond and we're doing fine. Sherlock then hears a horn outside and looks outside the window and says: Ah the taxi's here. Now go enjoy the reunion. As Sherlock walks John to the door John says "Sherlock". Sherlock says " John, that's an order". John replies with a sigh "Yes sir". As John goes down the stairs he try's to put on a confidence face and hopes Sherlock would do fine. As Sherlock watches the taxi drive down the street with John inside, he then looks around the flat and says I got the whole flat to myself. Sherlock smiles and says a quick pj change and to the kitchen!A hour has gone by and Sherlock is in the kitchen doing experiments wearing a lab coat and goggles. As he writes down the last bit of notes, he suddenly hears crying from a electrical device. As first, he knew it wasn't his mobile because his phone would always beep from Lestrade if there ever was a case but there was none at this time of night. He then suddenly remembered what John said about baby monitors and heads over to the baby monitor by his computer and sees it flashing red and hears Rosie crying. Sherlock then goes into his mind palace and pictures what's going on with Rosie trying to crawl away from monsters. Sherlock then pictures himself playing his violin scaring the monsters away. Sherlock come out of his mind palace grabs his violin and says confidently" The game to get rid of those monsters is on!" Sherlock quickly takes off his lab coat, goggles, and heads to John's room and sees Rosie in her cradle fidgeting and crying. Sherlock turns on her nightlight which shows colourful roses moving around the ceiling. He puts his violin down on John's bed and picks up Rosie wearing a light pink flower all in one and says, "I know little flower Sherlock's here shhh shhh" Sherlock rocks Rosie gently and Rosie calms down and looks at Sherlock and smiles. Sherlock then starts singing a lullaby while holding Rosie. "You are still awake and it's way past your bedtime. Your father and I made a vow we have to keep. So when the roses commence to bloom to across the sky, I'll count them all until you fall asleep. Sherlock puts Rosie down in her cradle and sits on John's bed and starts playing a tune on his violin. Rosie sleepily tries to grab Sherlock's baton but she missies. Sherlock plays his violin while singing the lullaby and looks at roses on the ceiling . "The first little rose bloomed high in the sky and was off to the land of night. The second and third were close behind like three little peas in a pod. The fourth little rose was to shy to bloom. He bloomed by the moon instead. The fifth little rose didn't bloom at all. He must wait longer instead. Number six looked around as confused as could be. He wonder where his friends would be. He bloom hard as he could as soon he saw his friends he grew and grew and finally bloomed in the sky. Sherlock then pictures Rosie crawling to the roses in her pjs. The next little Rose was the littlest Rose. So little for such a big reach. Though she tried with all her might, she soon tired out and the littlest rose was asleep. As Sherlock finishes the final note on his violin, he looks Rosie fast asleep in her cradle. Sherlock smiles, puts down his violin and tucks Rosie with the blanket and sings the final line. "The littlest Rose is asleep. Sherlock kisses Rosie on the cheek and says goodnight Rosie sleep well. Sherlock then yawns turns off the nightlight and falls asleep on John's bed.John arrives back at Baker Street and opens the door holding gifts from his mates and a slice of cake for Sherlock. Mrs Hudson opens her door and says "Evening John, had a good night?" John says "Yeah, it was good. How was Sherlock?Mrs Hudson says "You missed Sherlock playing a beautiful tune on his violin to Rosie".John was confused and asks Why would he play his violin at this time of night?" Mrs Hudson smiles and says "Look for yourself." John heads upstairs unlocks the door and heads to Sherlock's room and says Sherlock I'm home. John notices Sherlock is not in his bed and says "Sherlock?" John hears light snoring from his room and opens the door quietly and see's Rosie still sleeping in her cradle and see's Sherlock sleeping on his bed holding his violin. John smiles and sees why Sherlock played his violin. John grabs Sherlock and tucks him in his bed and says quietly Well done Sherlock good job....
