drabble: Moment of Quiet

written for the Primeval 100 challenge 154 - past challenges (challenge 115 - parents) .

I apologise in advance. Two of my friends had a baby last week (yey, congrats to them!) so if there's a sudden rash of gratuitously cute C/A baby fics from me, that'll be why.  


Title: Moment of Quiet
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Abby/Connor
Rating: PG                
Warnings: gratuitous baby!fic
Spoilers: none
Challenge: past challenge – challenge 115, parents
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.

 

It was quiet when Abby arrived home. Too quiet.

            This was the first time she had left Connor alone with the baby for more than half an hour, and she’d spent the entire afternoon worrying about what trouble he might have managed to get into.

            The enthusiastic scatter of stuffed toys, blankets and baby bottles eventually led Abby to the bedroom.

            Their daughter was fast asleep in the middle of their bed with Connor curled protectively around her, one tiny hand hanging onto his thumb like a security blanket.

            Abby smiled and savoured the moment of quiet while it lasted.

hee, thanks. I've had that image in my head for the last few days, but only just managed to get it written at the last minute.

Awwwww. Love that Abby's worried about what trouble Connor would get into. *melts at the cuteness*

Wouldn't you be worried if you'd left Connor in charge of a baby for several hours? The mind boggles what sort of mess he might get into!

That's cute!

thanks. I'll try to keep the baby!fic bunnies under control, but I couldn't stop this one from escaping!

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!
I can't decide who's the cutest one here: the baby or Connor :D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 21st, 2010 12:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
LOL, it is a difficult decision.

yep, I couldn't resist the cuteness.

Aww! Cute!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 21st, 2010 08:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, thanks. I just couldn't resist it, I'm afraid.

I have a lump in my throat reading this! I can just picture Connor and the baby asleep together.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 21st, 2010 09:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
I've had that image of Connor and the baby in my mind for several days, I just didn't manage to write it until about an hour before the next challenge was due to go up!

Awwwwwwwww, cute!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 21st, 2010 09:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
There should be more Connor + baby cuteness, although I suspect several people might start running away screaming if there was *too* much more.
auntypam From: auntypam Date: April 22nd, 2010 12:52 am (UTC) (Link)
I wouldn't run screaming, I love Connor & baby! And the picture you put in my head makes me go AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 22nd, 2010 07:10 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. The thought of Connor with a baby is just too adorable for words. Although he'd probably spend the first few weeks veering between epic enthusiasm and complete panic!

Awwwwwwwwwww!

hee, gratuitous cuteness ftw.

Y'know, I'm not too fond of kids in real life, but I'm a complete sucker for Baby!Fic. This was impossibly adorable and I loved it.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 22nd, 2010 09:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I normally try to avoid writing baby!fic because people tend to run screaming from it, but every now and then I succumb to the urge to wallow in baby-related cuteness!

I think I am melting into my first puddle after reading a fic. Sooooooo cute I can't stand it. (In a good way).
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 23rd, 2010 07:11 am (UTC) (Link)
hee, thanks *goes to get mop again*. I did aim for the excessive cute with one, I'm afraid, glad it seems to have worked.
