I know I said I would clean out my ‘ideas’ folder but I can’t get rid of this. It’s the university AU version of the Jealous Alpha Sherlock headcanon @loveinthemindpalace gave me once and I think I could make this work.
The other version of this headcanon is already complete and you can read it HERE.
“What is your problem?” Greg hissed near Sherlock’s ear, dragging the man away from all the prying eyes. The atmosphere in the room was a strange mix of arousal, fear and respect and Greg couldn’t deal with it right now. He led Sherlock to an empty room, closing the door behind him and let out a breath, trying to make sense of what had just happened.
“I don’t have a problem, Lestrade. Why are we here?”
“We’re here because I’m pretty sure 90% of the Alpha’s out there want to kick your arse.” Greg grumbled, turning around to face Sherlock. Of course, the Alpha still looked gorgeous and composed and Greg’s stomach twisted into a knot when Sherlock’s eyes met his.
“They can always try, Lestrade.”
“Do you have to be so damn Alpha?” Greg snapped, stepping forward to his friend and poking him in the chest. “Seriously, what is going on with you tonight?”
“Nothing is ‘going on with me’, Lestrade. I’m fine.”
“You call what happened there fine?” Greg gestured behind him, seeing the tiny smirk on Sherlock’s lips before the man schooled his features back to neutral. “You humiliated a Supreme Alpha in front of all his friends, in front of the whole school! And for what?!” Greg threw his hands in the air when he saw the passive expression on Sherlock’s face. He knew his friend was reckless but this was stupid even by Sherlock’s standards. Greg stepped closer, looking Sherlock in the eyes but the man gave nothing away. Even his scent smelled just like before but Greg knew Sherlock had the best suppressants at his disposal thanks to his brother Mycroft.
“Don’t try to deduce me, Lestrade. It’s insulting.”
“No,” Greg crossed his arms, giving Sherlock his best pissed off look. “What’s insulting is how you treated Brett just now. Laying all his secrets out like that. Exposing him to his friends, to the school. You humiliated him, Sherlock.”
“He deserved it, he’s a-”
“Supreme Alpha or not, nobody deserves what you did just now, Sherlock. I don’t-” Greg stopped, swallowing away the bad taste that had formed in his mouth. He’d always known Sherlock could be insensitive, not always knowing how to react in social situation but he’d never seen him as cruel. Greg shook his head, taking a step back, hugging himself tighter.
“Did he do something to you? Brett?” Greg looked up, seeing Sherlock’s confused expression and his heart broke. Whenever Sherlock lashed out like that, there was a reason. Not that it excused his behavior but it made things easier to understand in hindsight. The way Sherlock looked at him now made it clear Brett hadn’t done anything to Sherlock in the past and Greg was at a loss.
“Then why did you do that?”
“You don’t know what he was thinking!”
