Primeval drabble: The Price (Kept verse)

feeling: sympathetic

Title: The Price

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: The next in my Kept Drabble Verse. Though really, lena7142 did just as much work on these 100 words as I did.

Summary: Everything’s for sale; it’s just a matter of price.



-o-

Helen brought him to a new, soft-lit room, with good food and candles.

A date.

Helen had ruined Stephen’s life. Now, she laughed at his jokes like he was still some star-struck undergrad.

“I’ve missed this,” she purred.

He raised his eyebrows. “Is that why you let me die?”

“No, that’s why I saved you,” she countered, eyes narrowing. “Now I need your help.”

“You think I’ll help?” Stephen asked.

“I think you owe me.”

“I’m not for sale.”

“Everything’s for sale, Stephen,” Helen said, her smile sultry as her fingers brushed his hand. “It’s just a matter of price.”

*Tears hair out*

Helen is just so sinister and conniving; she's the perfect villain.

Great continuation!

This is a cool angle!

I LOVE this tag to Stephen's death. I've often wondered if Helen would have done that, just like it happened with Cutter, since she slyly hinted to it at the end of that episode. I love the idea of Stephen's defiance in this though. It's a lovely image.

Fave part:

He raised his eyebrows. “Is that why you let me die?”

--LOVED that he asks this.

I've had fun with this whole AU verse to bring Stephen back. I think the plan was always there for Stephen to be brought back but it never worked out -- at least that's why we have fic!

Thanks!
