Primeval drabble: Perfect Company

April 14th, 2012 (10:21 pm)
accomplished

feeling: accomplished

Title: Perfect Company

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: Another one for primeval100, the prompt was “Rex!” .

Spoilers: Vaguely post S2, canon-based (though very not specific).

Summary: People underestimate lizards, but they’ve got intelligence and personality.



-o-

Abby gets home, tired and weary. She slings her bag on the chair, calling, “Rex!”

There’s a squawk and the prehistoric lizard swoops in, smacking the light before landing. Rex preens, sauntering closer for a proper hello.

Abby smiles. People underestimate lizards, but they’ve got intelligence and personality. And they don’t lie, don’t flirt and then go date someone else, don’t ask her out while in another relationship, don’t go off and die on a moment’s notice.

“You really are perfect company,” she muses, tracing his crest with her fingers. Because of all the rest, he’s hurt her the least.

Well captured, but I'm heading back into Denial now!

Denial is a much nicer place to be. Sometimes my muse just needs to be coaxed back, though.

Thanks :)

Abby did have a lot to go through on the show. Though at least she survived :)

Thanks!

Being a member of the ARC certainly isn't easy, even if you survive.

Thanks!

stephen goodbye

There's a reason so many people gravitate toward their pets :)

And honestly, I'll always feel somewhat bittersweet about this show.

Thanks!

Bittersweet is often what I feel about the first two series.

With Connor behaving like an idiot it's no wonder she prefers the company of lizards.
