What follows is offered in response to Velvet Verbosity's 100 Word Challenge. The challenge, this week, is "Faith".
"I say, Holmes, you seem to think rather highly of yourself. It can be off putting, you know?"
"Not a bit of it, Watson. You have your Medicine, your Science if you will, in which you have complete confidence, do you not?"
"And well you should. I have seen you work. You are a most excellent Doctor, Watson."
"Thank you, Holmes. Good of you to say."
"It is not flattery, Watson. I do not flatter. But just as you have trust and confidence in your Medical Science, so do I have total trust and faith in my mind."
