Abby kept watch in the cretaceous night, listening to Connor mumbling. He was having nightmares again.

She fought the urge to reach out and hold him, to chase away his fears, and her own. As always, she held back.

If they started down that road they could never go back. There would be promises of love and forever. Promises that would inevitably be broken, and then there would only be pain and loss.

Except... this was Connor. What if he was the exception?

Connor curled up, whimpering her name.

Abby finally decided to risk the pain, and reached for him.

He's definitely worth it, it just took Abby a while to realise that.

I love that moment - when Abby gives in finally. It'll free her and Connor both. He's worth the risk, and maybe she can learn why Connor thinks she is too. Lovely drabble.

thanks. He's definitely worth the risk, and I think Abby knows that deep down.

Great moment! I can so imagine this happened, how Abby and Connor became closer and closer.

It took Abby a long time, but she got there in the end.

thanks. This was something of a last minute panic drabble, because I didn't want to miss another challenge.
