          Claudia collapsed onto the sofa with a glass of wine. Another crisis averted, another mountain of reports filed. She deserved a quiet night.

            The phone was tempting. She wanted to call Nick. She even had a perfectly legitimate excuse – they could discuss the reports. On second thoughts, official reports were probably the least sexy topic of conversation ever. What pretext could she-

            The phone rang.

            “Nick…” she smiled. For a moment. “Connor…? Another one…? Where…? Yes, of course, I’ll be there soon.”

            Claudia hung up with a sigh. So much for the quiet night. She really had to be more careful what she wished for.

now now, Claudia, you need to use the reports as placemats for whatever you're serving for dinner...and depending on your you present yourself, Nick will no doubt see the reports as being very sexy (by association, naturally)

this was a great fun drabble...though I can't quite expell the thought that, maybe, just maybe, Connor's trying to play matchmaker. ;D

I hadn't thought of that about Connor, but now you mention it, I can just see him trying to play matchmaker.

Poor Claudia! She should just have phoned Cutter, he probably would have found the reports sexy!

Or if he was having an attack of 'oblivious-male' and completely failed to spot her intentions, he would probably just start nit-picking all the scientific bits of the reports that he didn't have a hand in writing!

Indeed, poor Claudia.

(And go me! Another icon for N/C fics. Now I Just have to remember to keep changing the icon when I reply to comments on differnet threads. easier said than done - my LJ is starting to look like lottery-icon! (as in - you never know what you're going to get!))

You ought to add Oblivious Male to the table of cliche's that Entangled_Now is collecting. I don't think i've seen that one there yet!

*pets Claudia*

Poor lass - at least she'll get to see Nick again sooner than she thought!

Nick/Claudia was the pairing that got me writing primeval fic in the first place. Poor Claudia, but at least now she'll get to see Nick if there's an anomaly.

Poor Claudia and her lost quiet night. On the plus side, though, she will get to see Nick earlier. (g)

True, it's a very good excuse to see Nick, but I think she was more hoping for wine and a cosy chat rather than being chased by long extinct creatures with him. Poor Claudia.

The phrase 'becareful what you wish for' seems appropriate here - poor Claudia :)

ideed. Maybe the reports might have seemed sexier when compred with running around a field being chased by dinosaurs!
