Primeval drabble: A Fair Fight (Kept verse)

feeling: uncomfortable

Title: A Fair Fight

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: With thanks to lena7142. Part of my Kept drabble verse.

Summary: Stephen realized grimly that he might actually lose.



-o-

Stephen had never been much of a fighter. He’d been partial to fencing and sharpshooting, but those were more about finesse than brute strength. Sheer power never seemed important.

Until now.

Helen fought viciously, and Stephen wasn’t at peak condition. He realized grimly that he might actually lose.

Taking another hit, he reeled against the counter. His flailing fingers brushed against something and an idea seized him. He’d always fought fair in the past.

This was the future, though. Things had changed.

His fingers closed around the item -- a handheld anomaly detector -- then he charged Helen and swung.

"He’d always fought fair in the past.
