Primeval drabble: Games (kept verse)

angry

feeling: angry

Title: Games

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: The next in my Kept drabble verse.

Summary: Stephen is tired of games.



-o-

Stephen fought for his self control. “What do you mean?”

Helen’s postured eased, as if suddenly comfortable again. “I mean, you can’t trust them.”

That wasn’t enough. Not this time. “But how did they create it? Why?”

Helen shrugged. “I don’t know.”

Stephen’s shook his head. “You don’t know or you won’t tell me?”

“It’s complicated--”

“No, it’s not,” Stephen said flatly.

Helen protested. “You--”

Stephen sighed, frustration peaking. “Damn it, I’m tired of games.”

This time, Helen’s eyes flashed. “I know you’re frustrated. Frankly, so am I,” she said. “But remember, these games are the only reason you’re alive.”

I had no idea when I started this how LONG it would take me in 100 word segments!

Thank you for keeping with it :)

“But remember, these games are the only reason you’re alive.”

So Helen, not telling everything and keeping things "up her sleeve".

Of course, she may not be telling him everything because I haven't figured it out yet myself...

But that's not the point :)

Thanks!

Most things with Helen aren't a good sign.

Thanks :)

Yeah, but Helen is pretty selective in her version of the truth.

Thanks :)
