Drabble: Heartbeat

Title: Heartbeat
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Becker, Abby, Connor

AN: Directly follows on from Tracks.


 

            “... don’t give a damn about your orders!”

            Abby stops short when Becker returns. Their eyes meet, and he momentarily glimpses her fears, until Connor stumbles out as well and the tension snaps.   

            Then the shouting really begins.

            Several minutes later, Becker can still hear the echoes of Abby’s furious tirade, mostly involving words like “arrogant,” “stubborn,” and “bastard,” (directed at him), and “stupid,” and “idiot,” (at Connor).  

            Becker suspects he should probably be more annoyed about the metaphorical Abby-sized footprint in his arse when she has finished.  

            But they both know he’d do the same again in a heartbeat.

I do like scary Abby giving them hell!

Abby on the warpath is a really quite scary thought.

Can easily picture Abby being furious.

The question is which one is she more pissed at - Connor or Becker? :-)

Go Abby! And hee to the use of the prompt :D

It took me absolutely ages to edit this one down to 100 words! Was starting to think I wouldn't manage it in time.

That clearly just means you should make it into a longer story *g*

Awww. Yay!!! Everybody lives! :-D This makes me very happy. Good for Becker knowing he'd do the same again.

Hee, I wasn't in the mood to kill anyone this time round, (lucky for the boys *evil grin*). Becker and Abby clearly need to come to an understanding when it comes to looking after Connor.

Guess they dodged a bullet there then didn't they. ;-)

And yes, they certainly do. :-) I mean, they have the same goal.

Watch out for Abby! Enrage at your own risk... lovely drabble :)

I don't know about Becker, but I think *I'd* be quite scared of an enraged Abby!

Hee - do the boys need to comfort each other afterwards? (Connor can massage the metaphorical footprint away *G*)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 10th, 2011 09:49 am (UTC) (Link)
I suspect Abby will be taking Connor away and providing lots of comfort... when she's finished shouting at him. Becker will just have to take care of himself!

Love this! Abby is one scary lady!

I'd actually intended to do two sequels, one with Connor and Becker on the other side, and then this, but in the end only this one really worked :-( But I did rather enjoy scary Abby.

Next time the footprint shouldn't be metaphorical!

Great use of the prompt!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 10th, 2011 09:53 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. I think Becker has got the message loud and clear already!

Abby definitely kicks arse *g* Go, girl!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 10th, 2011 09:54 am (UTC) (Link)
Abby is awesome, and quite scary when she's being protective of her boys.

Angry-Abby is great. Becker didn't stand a chance.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 10th, 2011 09:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, thanks. Angry Abby is a force to be reckoned with, even for a big tough soldier boy!

I love Hell-cat Abby!!!!!!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 11th, 2011 08:01 am (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I think Connor is in for an even harder time than Becker, poor lad!
lsellersfic From: lsellersfic Date: August 15th, 2011 10:43 am (UTC) (Link)
It's just because she loves them!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 15th, 2011 05:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Lol! She's just a little over protective of her boys, especially when they insist on throwing themselves into danger!
