Primeval drabble: Fight or Flight (Kept verse)

February 4th, 2013 (08:26 pm)
anxious

feeling: anxious

Title: Fight or Flight

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: The next in my Kept drabble verse. I’m amazed people are still reading :)

Summary: Stephen should have had this fight years ago



-o-

Stephen couldn’t win an argument with Helen.

He’d loved that about her -- her unyielding passions. Stephen hadn’t known how to stand up to that, not even when he wanted to.

He couldn’t win an argument with Helen.

He didn’t have to.

He just had to run.

No more hesitation: Stephen ran. But as he approached the anomaly, Helen lunged, too, sending them to the floor.

Stephen scrambled up. Helen crouched nearby, eyes predatory. “I’ve worked too hard,” she hissed. “You’re not messing it up now.”

Resolved, Stephen was ready. He should have had this fight years ago. “We’ll see.”

I think it's safe if I just keep screaming in terror (broken up by an occasional whimper). Agreed?

*G*

You could probably sell tickets to the fight! I just hope that the team come through from the other side of the anomaly soon...

It is a showdown long in coming. I can't skimp on it now.
