Last of the three drabbles I've written recently for the challenges posted at primeval100/The ARC. Tomorrow I'll be posting some longer fics again.

Only Business
Nick, Claudia
Pairings/Ships: Nick/Claudia
Genre: Drabble (Betrayal)
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Spoilers: 1x03
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 feels like betrayal even though she made no promises.

Claudia fixes her eyes firmly ahead as they lead a dripping wet Helen out and bundle her into a car. The civil servant is all business, striding along, focussed on the matter at hand.

Except for when she momentarily catches his eye.

Nick sees it then, a flash of guilt on her face. But she’s stronger than that. She’s not the type to let emotions get in the way of her doing what she thinks is right.

Betrayal is perhaps too strong a word for it. But the idea that the trust that had grown between them has gone hurts.
