“Becker, please respond.”

The figure on the CCTV feed finally sat up. Jess saw his hand go to his head, and come away stained dark.

“Becker, you have to move. There are creatures closing in on your position.”

Another screen showed a pack of wolf-like animals. The building schematic revealed just how close they were.

“Jess?” He sounded... scared? “I can’t see anything.”

Jess fought down the urge to panic. She reviewed the screens again.

“Okay, Becker, I need you to trust me.”

He didn’t hesitate.

“Yes.”

“There’s a wall behind you. Follow it, keeping the wall on your left...”

Meep, not a good situation for poor Becker - or Jess. Where is the cavalry?

The cavalry is too far away to help him in time! Jess won't let him down, though.

Jess will get Becker through this. Lovely.

Thanks! Jess will do everything she can to save him, no doubt.

Lol! I have been having thoughts about writing something like this as a proper fic for a while. Wonder if it would qualify for the 'character in distress' square on my bingo card...?

I think it would. Do it! :)

Oh no! Poor Becker.

Jess will look after him until the rest of the team can get to him.

Glad Jess is 'there' for Becker! What a situation for him to be in...
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 31st, 2013 09:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
I know, poor Becker! Jess will get him through it, though.

Oh Eeep! But, you know, a rather delicious set-up!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 31st, 2013 09:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! I have been thinking of doing something like this as a longer fic for a while. I might have to give it a go and see if it's got the legs for a full length plot.

Hurtee Becker and competent Jess - two of the best things. :)

Thanks! Becker is so often the one doing the rescuing, it's fun to turn the tables occasionally.
