|In the Bailey
- Unspecified time
In the Old Bailey court, Herlock Sholmes was put on trial for a mysterious murder. Barok van Zieks said the murder occurred in the middle of the night, two days ago. The victim, Madam Rosie, was found on a sofa in Sholmes' flat. Ryunosuke Naruhodo reminded the court that she removed herself from Sholmes' residence. Sholmes' went to the kitchen for tea and came back to find the room empty. Iris Wilson was invited to a meeting of academics that day. Tobias Gregson revealed that the door was locked from the inside. The snow under the window had no marks, so the victim couldn't have gone out that way. Naruhodo couldn't find the victim either, Gregson just returned from a business trip and was on his way to the office when Naruhodo and Sholmes ran into him. When they raced back, only their own footprints were there. Naruhodo went straight back to the attic to go to bed, Sholmes and Gregson found Madam Rosie collapsed on the sofa and heard her spitefully say, "That rotter... Sholmes...will be...the death of me", before she quietly died. The cause was a strangle crushing her windpipe. Sholmes agreed with Gregson's testimony, she invited the annoying, noisy lady that evening. They started to quarrel over a trivial matter and Sholmes left to put the kettle on, that's a motive but it's vague since the body disappeared. Van Zieks said Sholmes always said that no crime was impossible and he solves all mysteries. Being a great detective, Sholmes admitted that anything was possible with him. The judge declares the detective guilty and ordered him to be sent to prison.
Ryunosuke Naruhodo urged the judge to wait saying there must be another person responsible. Sholmes said he knows what happened that night, but Barok van Zieks wasn't buying it. The Reaper demanded him to tell the court what he knows, he said she went through the window. Naruhodo mentioned the second floor and lack of footprints, Sholmes suggested that she flew to her real killer and she was put by the killer. Sholmes said Tobias Gregson carried the body in his coat pocket and put her body on the sofa. Van Zieks thought Sholmes was being very ridiculous, but Sholmes reveals that Madam Rosie was actually a parakeet. Sholmes said she was Gregson's pet and he left him with Sholmes when he went away, after that argument the parakeet missed her owner so she flew to his house. Gregson admits it was an accident, he slammed the door right on the parakeet without noticing her. That's when Sholmes came saying there was an incident, so he hid Rosie in his coat and got into the carriage. He said it's because of Mael Stronghart, he told Gregson to take care of the parakeet, she's been living in his office with his doves but they started picking on her. That's why Stronghart gave her to Gregson. He framed Sholmes so he'd still get pay and vacation. Madam Rosie's "last words" were really her mimicking Gregson's insults towards Sholmes after one of his recent portrayals in The Adventures of Herlock Sholmes.
In the Lord Chief Justice's Office, Barok van Zieks has been waiting with Tobias Gregson three hours to give their report on a previous case. Madam Rosie didn't actually die, and is doing much better now. Van Zieks said he had no idea she was a parakeet before it was revealed in the trial. Mael Stronghart arrived, he apologized for being late. Van Zieks wonders what will come of his connection with Ryunosuke Naruhodo, he's certain they'll meet again. Gregson noticed that the parakeet was flying cheerfully with the doves.
