Primeval drabble: Lessons Learned (Kept verse)

Title: Lessons Learned

Disclaimer: I do not own Primveal.

A/N: The next in my Kept drabble verse. With thanks to lena7142 who helped me get this to 100 words with her epic editing abilities.

Summary: Stephen is the model patient.



-o-

Stephen trains hard and surprises the doctors. Even more, he listens and obeys, laughs and chats. The medical staff grow fond of him -- he’s the model patient.

Helen visits. She watches him eat his rations and says, “I was surprised when they told me you’d become cooperative. This means you’re learning.”

Stephen smiles and chews.

Helen’s right: he is learning. About the routines; the facility; the staff. He knows the security now -- the procedures, the methods, the goals.

And Helen’s wrong, too. Because more than anything, Stephen’s shift in behavior indicates something else.

To Stephen, this means war.

Poor Stephen had such a run of being stupid in S2, but I like to think that he's capable for more :)

Thanks!
