Primeval drabble: True Devotion

Title: True Devotion

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: For primeval100 and the prompt devotion. Spoilers through 2.07. Helen/Stephen, sort of Stephen/Cutter, depending on how you read it.

Summary: Stephen learns what true devotion is all about.



-o-

In the aftermath, Stephen was almost broken with exhaustion. He buried his head into Helen’s heaving chest, her hands clenched in his hair. “I’d do anything for you,” he groaned.

“Oh, Stephen,” she purred, “such devotion.”

Years later, when Helen comes back, she calls on Stephen’s promise, and he struggles to fight it. She’s still Helen to him, the first woman who made him feel important, the first person he loved.

But things have changed – he’s changed – and Stephen has one last chance. So he closes the door and holds Cutter’s gaze and learns what true devotion is all about.

Thanks :)

LOL. Thank you.

Here's rule one: Write happier/more hopeful endings *G*. Or write an angsty drabble then a happy sequel/counterpoint.

*sporfles*

I will have to work on training my muse. In my defense, Stephen doesn't always make it easy with his angst!

Poor Stephen, indeed. And to think how many ways he could have prevented this end...
