Drabble: Bath Time


Written for primeval100 challenge 295 - Grateful

Title: Bath Time
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Matt, Emily
Rating: PG
Warnings: none
Spoilers: none
Challenge: 295 – Grateful
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.
AN: This was supposed to be about Matt and his attitude to water and waste and extravagance. Then Emily hijacked it completely...



The first time Matt encountered a bath he hated it on sight. He was horrified by the thought of such wasteful extravagance with so much water.

Emily, on the other hand, loved baths. Hot and deep, filled with scented bubble bath, and occasionally strange fizzing things. When she put her mind to it, Emily could retreat to the bath with a good book for hours.

It was probably a girl thing.

There was one advantage, though. Emily was one of the few women Matt knew who would never be disappointed or ungrateful to receive lots of bath smellies for Christmas.

Hee! Emily does rather seem to have taken over, doesn't she?

(I, on the other hand, am very much a shower girl, so bath smellies tend to be wasted on me!)

Yep, she stole this drabble entirely! I'm with Emily on the subject of long deep bubble baths.

I love their contrasting thoughts, and if they share a bath, I'm sure that Matt would find a reason to quite enjoy them ;)

lol! Yes, he might change his mind if they did that!

Great contrast in their attitudes here. I imagine Emily would enjoy all those lovely-smelling bath salts.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 3rd, 2013 09:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. Yes, after all those years travelling the anomalies, I'm sure Emily has a great appreciation for a bit of bath-related pampering.

And the first time he encountered it he probably didn't even know what it was, and probably REALLY needed one! *g*
Lovely drabble. I hope Matt at least has a shower...
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 5th, 2013 08:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Lol! Yes, I'm pretty certain Matt is more of a shower man :-)

LOL!

Though my MiL also loves smellies since she's got enough "stuff" and is diabetic and can't eat chocolate.

Hee, thanks! Yes, my mum's the same, so interesting bubble bath is always a useful random extra little present.
