drabble: The Eye of the Beholder

Written for the Primeval 100 drabble challenge 218 - Jess Parker

Title: The Eye of the Beholder
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Becker/Jess
Rating: PG                 
Warnings: None
Spoilers: None 
Challenge: Jess Parker 
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.  

            Becker knew many things about Jessica Parker. He had spent a long time observing, learning.

            He knew she was young, and still relatively innocent. She was small, vibrant, and cheerful. She had... interesting, and colourful, taste in clothes.

            He knew she was deceptively intelligent, and in control. She was brave, and stronger than most people realised. Becker knew he trusted her.

            He knew Jess was beautiful, and that she brought out his protective instincts. She made him smile. She broke down his walls. She made him feel.

            Becker never admitted the truth, because he knew Jess deserved better than him.

I'm fairly certain she would disagree if she knew what was going on in his head, silly, emotionally inept Becker!

Aww. This was lovely. But, *meep* for the ending. :-(

Thanks. The angst crept in at the end again, I sometimes think I'm incapable of writing drabbles that *aren't* angsty!

aww. Silly Becker. Jess would definetly disagree. Good job.

thanks, Jess would certainly disagree, if she could get him to stop running away for long enough to tell him!

*sniffles at the ending* Great character study of Becker as much as of Jess

thanks, it did rather end up being about both of them, in the end.

Jess would hug the hell out of him if she knew what he's thinking. Silly man, indeed. *pokes Becker*

Love it! :)

Oh, Becker. Let the lady decide for herself, you great numpty. :D

Just lovely!

lol, 'numpty' is definitely the right word when it comes to describing Becker trying to deal with his feelings for Jess! Great comment, thanks.

Awwww! That last line!!! *flail*
*whimper*
Awesome.
*shouts very loudly at Becker to get a move on*

hee, thanks. Becker wins the award for being completely emotionally inept, and that's saying something when he's up against the likes of Connor and Abby!

I loved your descriptions of Jess. They were spot-on.
