He already knew that Will Graham was his weakness.

Once upon a time, he would have simply kept Will at arm's length, not let him get close, and he would have closed himself off to the other man, Sherlock mused.

But now .... he had changed in the past two years. He had become a new person, really. He had ventured to go outside of his own comfort zone, and apparently, he expected others to do the same as well. He was certainly expecting Will to do so.

Though it was obvious that Will didn't really have a choice. His life here had been ripped to shreds; the best thing for him to do would be to leave and start over.

No one would hold his past against him at Scotland Yard.

Once Sherlock explained what had happened, how horribly Will had been treated here, how he had been used and thrown away, and how he had been framed for crimes he never would have even considered committing, Sherlock knew that there would be no problems.

And he was going to do just that. He was going to show everyone at the Yard just how Will had been thrown under the bus, make them treat him with dignity and respect.

He sighed softly, putting down the book he'd been trying to read. In the past hour and a half, he hadn't gotten past the first ten pages.

His thoughts kept going back to Will, and the future that he hoped the two of them would have. When he took Will to London and introduced him to everyone at Scotland Yard, it would be obvious to those people that Will was not just his friend, but his biggest weakness.

A part of him actually wanted that fact to be common knowledge.

Yes, he might as well admit it. He wanted people to know how he felt about Will. He wanted them to know that he was capable of deep emotions, that he wasn't a machine.

Too many people thought that about him. Too many people thought that he didn't have any weaknesses, that he was impenetrable -- that he was something less than human. Well, his feelings for Will certainly proved that he was just as human as anyone else.

Even though it might not be to his best interests to let those feelings show, Sherlock knew that he wouldn't be able to hold them back.

He just hoped that one day in the near future, Will would return those feelings.
