Primeval drabble: Safe Haven (Kept verse)

feeling: grateful

Title: Safe Haven

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: The next in the Kept drabble verse. LOL, plot in 100 increments takes so much longer than I ever imagined! Thank you for still reading :)

Summary: Stephen learns where they are.



-o-

“This is one of the few safe haven left,” Helen explained.

They were on an observation deck, watching the rain as it pattered against the desolate terrain.

“What is this?” Stephen asked, not flinching when her fingers tickled his hair.

“The ARC, of course,” she said.

Stephen froze.

“They built this place to control the anomalies,” she continued. “It’s practically impenetrable.”

Stephen looked at the walls with new wonder.

“Lucky for them,” she mused. “The rest of the world...not so much.”

Stephen suppressed a shudder. Outside, the rain was unrelenting.

“They saved themselves,” she said, “and condemned everyone else.”

Old Fashioned Stephen


Eeek - is she telling the truth? Makes a scary amount of sense about it being the ARC...

Hard to tell with Helen, but the truth is often scariest of all :)

Thanks!

Chilling, although I wouldn't completely trust Helen's interpretation.

Hmmm... knowing Helen, she's either lying, or else at the very least bending the truth to her own version of events.

Or just leveraging the truth for the maximum effect. It's never clear with her.

Thanks!

Ooh! Scary! But I imagine Helen is, as always, being economical with the truth.

Economical is a good way of putting it.

Thanks!
