        When they finally get home Connor still looks terrified, even though he wasn’t the one in danger this time.

            Abby just wants to curl up and forget about her encounter with teeth and claws, but he’s fussing and doing that thing again, when the thoughts in his head aren’t translating properly. It doesn’t matter, Abby knows him well enough to understand.

            She knows that when he makes her three cups of tea in a row, it’s because he daren’t just hold her.

            And when he stumbles over saying, “I’m glad you’re safe,” what he really means is, “I love you.”

I'm sensing a theme to the comments to this one...

That's cute and sooooo Connor!

typical bloke, complete failure to communicate properly.

Very sweet! And I don't just mean the tea :)

Heehee, I seem to be turning so many of these drabble prompts into Abby/Connor het these days. They're just adorable together.

Awww... *hugs them both*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 9th, 2009 10:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
*hugs them as well*. They're both being cute but inept.

Adorable :D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 08:07 am (UTC) (Link)
thanks. They are so cute sometimes.

Aww.. sweet.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 08:08 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. Connor + Abby = cuteness.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!! That's adorable! And I can just see Connor behaving like that.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 08:09 am (UTC) (Link)
Hee, thanks. Yep, Connor would so behave like that, because we've seen on the show how useless he is when it comes to saying what he really feels.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 08:11 am (UTC) (Link)
hee! I couldn't resist a bit of Connor/Abby adorableness.
sunnyrea From: sunnyrea Date: March 10th, 2009 03:33 am (UTC) (Link)
oh that is so Conner and so cute!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 08:13 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. I have a horrible feeling that Connor talks to Rex far more easily than he talks to Abby sometimes! Silly boy.
fififolle From: fififolle Date: March 10th, 2009 08:07 am (UTC) (Link)
Aawwwwwww! Sooooo sweet :) He does speak a totally other language :) This was lovely. *hugs them*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 08:15 am (UTC) (Link)
When it comes to the important stuff, he fails completely to speak the same language as Abby. At least Abby understands even if he is talking geek-babble.
reggietate From: reggietate Date: March 10th, 2009 08:42 am (UTC) (Link)
Sweet, and very typically Connor :-)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 01:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
Very Connor. He has epic communication fail whenever it isn't something to do with computers or Star Trek.
lsellersfic From: lsellersfic Date: March 10th, 2009 09:09 am (UTC) (Link)
Aww! Cute Connor.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 01:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, he's cute when he's being inept.

She knows that when he makes her three cups of tea in a row, it’s because he daren’t just hold her.

Awwwww that line is so cute and totally in character for Connor. Nice drabble!

deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 24th, 2009 08:15 am (UTC) (Link)
thanks. *pets Connor for being cute but inept* Sone days I just want to shake him and say, 'tell her, you idiot!'
