Primeval Fic: Mistake  

Title: Mistake
Word Count: 100
Rating: K
Challenge: Connor
Characters/Pairing: Connor/Abby, Nick/Claudia
Warnings: None
Spoilers: None

Author’s Notes: I do have a tendency to not be able to think of things for the

primeval100 challenges until it is too late to post. Written in, quite literally five minutes when inspiration suddenly struck.

Summary: Connor had a horrible habit of coming to important decisions too late.


Connor stood with a preparatory breath as the wedding march started.

He glanced across at his friends, needing courage.

Claudia smiled at him, looking positively radiant in pregnancy even if she insisted she only looked fat.

Nick smiled in understanding, bouncing their four year old daughter on his knee to keep her quiet. He’d already been in Connor’s position twice before.

And Abby smiled too, but hers was tinged with a sadness she couldn’t hide.

Connor knew then that he should have told her. That she wouldn’t have turned him down.

He’d regret it for the rest of his life.

Good lord, that's probably the quickest feedback I've ever had on something :D

I have emails that tell me when someone posts on the primeval comm, and I just happened to be checking me emails just after you posted :P

"If anyone here present..."

That would be the cue. ;o)

Loved it; poor Connor though.

Am I amazingly dense this morning? I don't get it. >

Don't worry, you're not the only one. I clearly tried to be too clever and it didn't quite work :D

To summarise:
- Connor getting married
- Nick and Claudia already married, one kid, one on the way
- Connor sees Abby sitting with his other friends and thinks 'bugger, I should have told her I love her and now I'm marrying someone else!'

Ah, I see, for a second I thought Abby was marrying Stephen or something.

Oh, poor Connor! Although I can't help feeling for the woman he's about to mistakenly marry as well...
