“Your thingy got trampled, then?” Becker observed.

Connor was on his knees in the mud, gathering up what was left of his latest technological creation.

“I spent months working on this, and it’s completely smashed,” Connor whimpered.

Becker gave a thoroughly unsympathetic shrug. Shit happens.

“Think of it as collateral damage,” Becker commented, and walked off.



After the hadrosaur stampede, Connor discovered Becker slumped against a tree. He saw the soldier’s forlorn, dejected expression a moment before he spotted the broken remains of the shotgun.

Connor couldn’t help himself. He patted Becker’s shoulder, trying not to smirk.

“Collateral damage, eh?”

hee, thanks. I think I must have been subconsiously wanting Connor to get his own back on Becker after he was mean and thoughtless. I can't imagine why I might be feeling like that recently... ;-)

Becker deserved that, to be fair.

I wouldn't have been able to help myself either :-) At least Becker can always requisition another shotgun!

I don't blame Connor a bit for getting that little bit of vengeance. Although he's probably already rebuilding his device, Mark II.
