Sherlock met John’s eyes and gave a small nod. “I-I’m glad to be back. I missed you,” he paused a moment. “And I’m glad you didn’t find a girlfriend and settle down with her… “
John let a small smile grace his lips, he made no attempt at response, but rather lent forward and pressed a gentle kiss to Sherlock’s lips.
Sherlock returned the kiss before shifting so he could lay his head in his lap. “I love you,” he murmured softly, a light smile brushing his own lips.
