Challenge: Jenny Lewis

Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.
Mark talks about his departmental meetings, and Jenny tunes him out, occasionally agreeing where appropriate.
He never asks about her day.
Even if he did, Jenny couldn’t tell him.
She couldn’t tell him that she had been chased by dinosaurs, cornered, terrified. She couldn’t tell him that she had stood side by side with Connor, wielding a piece of two-by-four against something that shouldn’t exist. She couldn’t tell him that when Cutter finally rescued them she had, just for a moment, found comfort in another man’s arms.
But sometimes Jenny thinks it would be nice if Mark at least asked.
