Primeval drabble: Unexpected

feeling: angry

Title: Unexpected

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval

A/N: The next in my drabble series. With thanks to lena7142.

Summary: Stephen was never part of the master plan.


-o-

He woke up in the bed again, but this time his limbs felt heavy; he couldn’t move.

Helen stood over him, smiling. “I’ve gone through a lot of trouble, Stephen,” she said. “Timing the anomaly to pull you out wasn’t easy. I was almost too late; when I found you, you were already dead.”

He swallowed with difficulty, cursing his weakness. “Why?”

There was something sinister in her look, but something softer, too. “Your death was unexpected,” she told him. “You were never part of the master plan, I’ll admit, but you might just be what I’ve needed all along.”

The plot on this is moving slowly (100 words at a time!), but hopefully I'll start making things more definite soon :)

Thanks!

Meep - though there is that hopeful softer bit...

Yeah, I'm being a bit ambivalent with Helen. Just a bit, though.

Thanks!

I think Stephen might dread it, too.

Thanks!

Argh, of course everything has to fall into Helen's master plan. Great continuation.

She really is rather obsessive in her plans.

Thanks! I hope this isn't moving too slowly! 100 words is hard when plotting!

Loving this series so much!
