How long can Aylanara remain a secret from Mycroft? And what if Sherlock's enemies find out about her?

It was a week later, and Aylanara hadn't left Baker's Street. As far as anyone else knew, she had gone back to America.

John and Sherlock were the only ones who knew she was still in England, though they had a couple of close calls with Lestrade and Donovan.

Mycroft had made no indication of knowing she was there, and for a while, Aylanara thougt she was safe. She couldn't of been more wrong.

It was an early Thursday afternoon, and Aylanara was watching TV whilst Sherlock practised his violin. John was at his girlfriends (and would be for the rest of the night) so it was a suprise when the doorbell rang.

Aylanara ran out of the living room, in her haste forgetting to turn off the tv. She slid into Sherlock's room, and listened through a crack in the door. Her heart was pounding.

Sherlock put down his violin and walked over to the door. He opened it slightly. And there, looking full of himself as usual, was Mycroft.

"Mycroft," Sherlock said, rolling his eyes slightly, "What do you need?"

"I simply wished to pay a visit to my dearest brother," Mycroft said with a fake smile, and he pushed into the living room and sat down.
