Primeval drabble: If Only In My Dreams (Kept verse)

December 17th, 2012 (08:37 pm)
gloomy

feeling: gloomy

Title: If Only In My Dreams

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: The next in the Kept drabble verse. LOL, and this doesn’t advance the plot at all. *facepalm* With thanks to lena7142 for her awesome editing skills.

Summary: He didn’t miss his mother’s holiday, but he still wanted to be home for Christmas.



-o-

Stephen remembered the decadent Christmases of his youth. His mother was a distant parent, but a lavish hostess. The tree was always neatly trimmed with meticulously wrapped presents, gleaming in the glow of the crackling fire.

Here, he wouldn’t even have known it was December, if not for a calendar in the lab. There was no tree, but they exchanged small gifts of rations to celebrate.

He didn’t miss his mother’s holiday, but he still wanted to be home for Christmas. With Connor’s eggnog, Abby’s mistletoe and Nick’s unwrapped gifts and firm handshake, wishing him the best for another year.

I love the three contrasting Christmases, and I'll hug Stephen until you can find a way home for him!

Awww!!!

I want to give him a hug! I'm not so ho-ho-ho this year so I can relate in a way.

Fave part:

He didn’t miss his mother’s holiday, but he still wanted to be home for Christmas. With Connor’s eggnog, Abby’s mistletoe and Nick’s unwrapped gifts and firm handshake, wishing him the best for another year.

He'd better start planning his escape if he wants to get home for next Christmas!
