Primeval drabble: Kept

July 21st, 2012 (10:28 pm)
giggly

feeling: giggly

Title: Kept

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval!

A/N: A post 2.07 drabble, AU (but maybe not the way I usually do!). Prompt was keeping secrets . Much thanks to lena7142 for looking this over.

Summary: Stephen survives. That may not be a good thing.



-o-

Stephen came to with a desperate, shuddering gasp. He could still feel it, his flesh being ripped from his bones.

But with his eyes open, there were no predators.

Just a plain white room, sterile and plain and--

“Helen,” he realized, staring in shock.

“This must be a pleasant surprise,” she said, lips twisted into a smile. “You can feel free to thank me any time.”

The rush of emotions was almost too much. Relief. Regret. Confusion. Horror. “But how?”

“Not yet. I’m keeping my secrets.” Her eyes glinted and Stephen’s stomach roiled. “Just like I intend on keeping you.”

OMG! Are you going to continue with this or are you just putting this out there to taunt us?

SUPERB use of that prompt. :-) Loved it. Evil!HELEN! is evil. Poor Stephen

LOL. I'm not sure if I'm going to continue it. I don't have a clear sense of where it would go but I'm vaguely interested in the prospect. So we'll see!

Thanks :)

Oh I think there is a LOT of potential here. You should totally continue with it. I think it's a very intriguing idea.

Hottie Nick/Stephen


Eeeeek! Well, Helen does have her uses with future tech...

You saved him (sort of!), and I'm sure that Nick and a team of ARC soldiers will be bursting in at any minute!

I did definitely save him. Because now Nick can burst in and save him, right?

;)

Thanks!

Yeah, I'm all for Stephen living but I'm not sure this scenario bodes well for him.

Thanks!
