Pattern by @TheGraphalo
You race through the streets as the newspaper sellers call out the news of yet another murder, an actress found dead. Sherlock enters a grand house in the wealthy Pimlico district; disappearing in to the interior. You enter slowly, your hand reaching for your service revolver; your heart racing faster even more than on a tiger hunt in India.
You note the rich trappings of the house as you seek the cat, a marble bust of Napoleon, a hand written leather bound edition of T. S. Elliot's “Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats “, a looted larder overflowing with milkbottles, a painting by Jean-Baptiste Greuze on the wall, and rifled jewel case. You explore deeper in to the house, Sherlock no where to be seen.
Entering the kitchen you see your quarry. His eyes are sunken in.
His brow is deeply lined with thought, his head is highly domed;
His coat is dusty from neglect, his whiskers are uncombed.
He sways his head from side to side, with movements like a snake.
An evil looking cat.
Crouched over it appears to be holding a knife as it hisses at you. Then you realize... its just a cat. It can't be holding a knife, its just sitting next to the knife rack. Feeling somewhat foolish you begin to relax and wonder why this cat could possibly be considered dangerous.
The cat begins to purr as it looks at you. No... behind you.
“I'm sorry” murmurs a softly lilted voice.
As you turn a gun fires and as hot pain erupts in your chest your realize you've been shot.
As you fall to the floor you see it is Sherlock holding the still smoking gun.
“Sherlock, why?” you whisper as darkness creeps in the edges of your vision.
“Not Sherlock” he replies distractedly stepping over your body to stroke the cat.
“Hello Macavity. Did you miss me?”
The last words you hear as death claims you are
“Did you miss me”
Who was the murderous impostor?
