Three Connor/Abby drabbles - 'Trust', 'Willpower' and 'Breath'


originally posted at the Primeval Canon drabble tree, these are three Connor/Abby-centric drabbles. All rather angsty, I'm afraid.


Title: Trust
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Pairing/characters: Connor, Abby
Rating: PG
Warnings: none
Spoilers: none
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.
Word count: 100
Summary: Connor is alone and afraid.  

He can’t see anything. His face burns where the lizard venom hit him, but it’s his eyes that hurt most and he can’t bloody see.

            He knows how loud his breathing sounds in the black and he tries to stamp down on the terror. There’s something else moving in here and he has no idea what it is. He reaches out into nothingness, fingers searching for something, anything to anchor himself.

           “Connor.”

            Abby’s hand is there, stopping him from falling.

           “Abby, I can’t...”

          “Shush,” she presses a finger to his lips. “It’s okay. Just trust me.”

           It’s Abby. Connor trusts without question.

 

Title: Willpower
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Pairing/characters: Connor/Abby
Rating: PG
Warnings: none
Spoilers: vague series 3
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.
Word count: 100
Summary: Connor can’t take this any more. 
 

Connor packs his bags and leaves while Abby is out. He feels like a coward, but if they talk, he knows his willpower will fail in the face of her false hope and promises.

He loves Abby, but he can’t take this any more. He can’t keep waiting for her to make her mind up. He can’t keep begging for scraps of affection, waiting for the inevitable rejection again. It hurts too much, and he doesn’t want to live that way any more.

Connor loves Abby. That’s why he has to stop her from hurting him, for both their sakes.

 

Title: Breath
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Pairing/characters: Abby/Connor
Rating: PG
Warnings: none
Spoilers: none
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.
Word count: 100
Summary: All she can do is hold on.


Abby couldn’t move. Wreckage of the explosion continued to creak and settle around her. The air was cold but she felt surprisingly warm, especially when breath tickled against her cheek.

“Connor?”

His eyes remained closed.

Abby tried to wriggle free but he was a dead weight pinning her down.

She remembered now. He had thrown himself onto her, protecting her body with his own. Stupid bloody heroic idiot.

“Connor! Wake up!”

Her clothes were becoming sticky and she knew it wasn’t her blood.

Abby screamed for help that never came, and held his hand as the breath on her cheek became weaker.
