Primeval drabble: A Future (Kept verse)

feeling: exhausted

Title: A Future

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: More in the Kept drabble verse.

Summary: Every moment came back to the same mistakes.



-o-

Stephen lost track of time.

For a moment, he was a student; young, stupid, desperately in love. Then, he was a friend, when years turned guilt into unflagging loyalty.

It changed again, and Stephen was building a life, a second chance.

Another shift, and Stephen was humiliated; a traitor.

Every moment came back to the same mistakes.

But there was more: someone squeezing his hand, a steady voice in his ear. “Don’t you dare die on me now.”

Stephen had a history he couldn’t escape but maybe he had a future, too.

“Stephen, hold on.”

A future worth living for.

I never tire of your lovely scenarios!

I just love these! Just enough angst to ache and hope all at the same time. You portray Stephen as this man who needs and deserves second chances plus you just want to hug the man!

Fave part:

--sigh. Just so...beautiful.

*runs around flailing and eeking and then squeeing at the end line*

*stops to catch breath*

I can SO see Stephen thinking all this and Nick being the desperate tether trying to bring him back...

Poor Stephen. He's just so angsty -- which is part of why I love to write him.

Thanks!

He's needed that for a long time!
