Primeval Drabble: Mortified Pride

Title: Mortified Pride

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: Written for the prompt pride and prejudice over at primeval100. With apologies to Jane Austen.

Spoilers: Set during S2.

Summary: This is why boys should read more Austen.



-o-

“Don’t be foolish,” Jenny says.

“What?” Cutter asks.

“About Stephen,” she clarifies, as though Nick should have known.

“You mean the man that slept with my wife and lied about it for the better part of a decade?” Cutter responds, duly contemptuous.

She purses her lips, tsking him roundly. “I imagine you could easily forgive his pride had he not so mortified yours.”

Cutter frowns. “What?”

Jenny rolled her eyes. “Really,” she mutters. “This is why boys should read more Austen.”

“What?” Cutter repeats, now totally confused.

“Go after him, make it right,” she says emphatically. “Before it’s too late.”

*applauds Jenny and her Sense and Sensibility* *G*

I think it would take a newer team member like Jenny to see what was going on and encourage resolution!

If only she had encouraged a bit more in canon! Then we could have been spared so much angst.

Thanks :)

There's a Jane Austen quote for every occasion, clearly! *g*

Compared to Stephen and Nick, just about anyone is sensible in this.

Thanks :)

Yay for Jenny being sensible. Hopefully Nick follows her advice.

I do wish he would! It might make things less angsty in the end.

Thanks!

Primeval-Nick Cutter

I think Nick deserves a bit more time to be angry at Stephen but knowing what's coming, it would have been good if they made up.

Hindsight is always 20/20. Something which Nick (and Stephen) both learned the hardest way possible.

Thanks :)
