Primeval drabble: Pulling the Trigger (Kept verse)

March 25th, 2013 (08:31 pm)
restless

feeling: restless

Title: Pulling the Trigger

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: Next in the Kept drabble series.

Summary: One of them was going to die here.



-o-

Stephen pulled the trigger.

Helen lunged.

The shot went wide. Helen swiped his legs out from under him and he went down, head smacking the floor. Then, Helen was there, on top of him, wrestling for the gun.

Dazed, Stephen fought, cursing himself for wavering. Now the gun wavered between them, his bid for asylum just out of reach.

Above him, her face was twisted into a primal snarl. The gun slipped and shifted, half buried between them as Stephen's finger still sat dangerously on the trigger.

One of them was going to die here.

Stephen just didn't know who.

Freakin' EXCITING! Rooting for Stephen, but there's the evil in me that is hoping for Stephen to at least get hurt. I can imagine so many scenarios! Hahaha! Helen dead, Stephen hurt, Stephen dead, all lovely.

Fave part:

*gets my usual scream of alarm and anguish out of the way*

Well, Stephen did actually fire! Too bad it missed, but Helen is definitely not going to be a happy gal that he actually did try to shoot her...

I've never been in the habit of biting my nails, but now might be the time to start!

Stephen is making progress...we'll have to see if he can keep that up or not.

And it shouldn't be TOO many more weeks until there's resolution.

Thanks!
