drabbles: Hiding From the Truth - parts 1 and 2

Written for the Primeval100 challenge 210 : Fear

Title: Hiding From the Truth - Abby
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Connor/Abby
Rating: PG                 
Warnings: None
Spoilers: None 
Challenge: Fear 
Word count: 100

            Abby won’t admit she’s afraid of anything. Certainly not of Connor.

No, not of Connor. It’s more what Connor represents, what he offers. Safety. Security. Loyalty. Commitment. Love.

Abby knows these things are more dangerous, and have far more power to hurt than any of the creatures they face. These are the things that she doesn’t want to admit she wants, or needs, because if she does admit she needs Connor, then it will be so much harder when she loses him.

And Abby won’t admit that the thought of losing Connor is the thing she fears above all else.

Connor knows there’s something wrong. He might be clueless about a lot of things, but he knows Abby, and he knows when she’s hiding something from him.

He also knows he should push harder, ask the question, but he’s too afraid of the answer. Too afraid of the words that he suspects in his darkest thoughts; that this was a mistake, that she doesn’t want him, that she only said yes because he really was the last man on earth.

Connor knows he won’t push Abby because it is easier to live with his fears than to hear those words.

*meep* and huggles for them both. Why don't they just bloody talk to each other!?

I know! They just need to talk properly *thwaps them both*

*thwacks both around the head* Just talk to each other.

Definitely, it's just the one thing they seem to be incapable of doing!

Oh *Meep* *Meep* *Meep!* You really should be nicer to them more often. They both to be sat down and had a good talking too. Then, we lock them in a room and they can figure it out from there. (BTW, you can't put any dinos in the room with them, except maybe Rex, ;-) it needs to just be them.)

*pets* I should be 'nice' to them? Where's the fun in that? *evil grin*

Lol at the thought of me locking them in a room and throwing dinosaurs in as well. Although now you mention it, that's not a bad idea... *runs away laughing maniacally*

Waaaaah! They so need to talk!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 15th, 2011 08:47 am (UTC) (Link)
they do! *thwaps them both*

These two definitely need lessons in communication!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 15th, 2011 08:48 am (UTC) (Link)
yep, it seems to be a feature of their relatinship, unfortunately.

Silly kids. Why can't they just have the conversation, instead of dancing around the point all the time!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 15th, 2011 12:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
they're idiots, both of them!

*wibble* Silly people! I feel the 'locking them together in a room until they talk' plan might work here!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 15th, 2011 12:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
But that would involve sensible communication, something they seem to be spectacularly bad at!

Meep. So Abby, so Connor.
Great double drabble from both POV's
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 15th, 2011 12:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, they're both as bad as each other sometimes.

*hugs them both* Talk to each other you silly billies *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 15th, 2011 06:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think they're incapable of talking to each other sometimes!
lsellersfic From: lsellersfic Date: May 16th, 2011 02:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh so sad! Especially the second, I can really see Connor thinking like that.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 16th, 2011 06:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, Abby really isn't giving him a lot of confidence with the way she's behaving.

Oh, poor things! Another couple that could do with talking to each other.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 21st, 2011 07:32 am (UTC) (Link)
yes, talking would help occasionally *thwaps them both*
