Primeval Fic: A New Kind Of Shock

A drabble today, from the original list at primeval100 that have now been reposted at the ARC.

Title: A New Kind Of Shock
Characters: Nick, Claudia
Pairings/Ships: Nick/Claudia

Genre: Drabble (prompt: Surprise!), Future
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Spoilers: None

Disclaimer: I don’t own them....Bugger... (although if anyone at Impossible Pictures wants to offer me a job that’d be great...)

Summary: It was probably the only thing left in the world that could truly surprise him.

Nick had believed that he was completely unflappable as far as surprises were concerned. It turned out he was wrong.

When his wife arrived at his office that afternoon everything had seemed very normal. Then Claudia had said something stunning.

He dropped the delicate bone he was holding and it snapped in half. Not that fossils meant much to him anymore when he so frequently came across the living thing.

“Say that again?” he asked in dumb shock.

“I said, I’m pregnant.”

It took several seconds for the shock to pass and the news to sink in. Then he smiled.
