Primeval drabble: The Blame Game (Kept verse)

Title: The Blame Game

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: Continued in the Kept drabble verse. With unending thanks to Lena.

Summary: Helen is trying to help; Stephen is not so sure.



-o-

“You actually blame me,” Helen realized.

Stephen sat stiffly, unable to taste the decadent food. “Hard not to.”

Her humor faded. “I never intended for that. I’ve been trying to help.”

The irony made Stephen nauseous. “Help? Really?”

She didn’t flinch. “You’ve no idea.”

“So tell me,” he snapped.

Her face was taut. “Nick fancies himself a hero, but he’s part of the problem. Remember the future predators?”

Stephen stiffened, remembering how one had torn his skin, ripped him open--

“Who do you think made them?”

Stephen didn’t trust himself to answer.

She smirked. “The ever-faithful staff of the ARC.”

Stephen - eriah

I can just hear Helen so clearly. Stephen's going to have to be smart and strong.

Hair!


At least he's not swallowing anything at face value! Poor Stephen, how's he going to get out of this...?

Stephen has been messed with by Helen enough. Though how he gets out of this is still hard to say...

Thanks!

Helen has always been his weakness. Though you'd hope he's learned his lesson.

Thanks!

No, don't listen to her! She's just playing with your mind!

Reading out of order - slaps wrist - so I'll have to go back and start at the beginning. But wanted to say that the voices really ring true in this.

LOL, I can't imagine this makes much sense without the context -- but I'm glad the voices are good!

Thanks!

Uh oh, Helen is starting to place doubts in Stephen's mind. What's scary is that there is truth in her words.

Great drabble!

Yeah, Helen is disconcerting because she's not entirely lying. Though Stephen's never been great at sorting out her lies from her truth.

Thanks!
