Waiting


Seventeen hours; that was how long they’d been stuck on top of this rock. Below them, a herd of something-a-sauruses prowled hungrily. With nothing else to do, Becker had been throwing stones at them in the hope they’d bugger off.

“The sunset’s pretty,” Connor pointed out, looking up at the blue and pink sky.

“It is,” Becker agreed, adding, “but soon it’ll be dark.”

Connor sighed. “You’re just a ray of sunshine, aren’t you?”

“I try.” Becker glanced at his watch; another five hours until the anomaly was due to reappear.

Bored, he lobbed another stone at the dinosaurs below.

Uh-oh, I think a bored Becker is a dangerous Becker. *g*
Good one.

He'll be fine once the anomaly reappears and they can go home.

He's really not very good at sitting still and waiting.

Connor should be safe, as long as the anomaly comes back when he predicted it would.

LOL Great drabble... and there's a longer fic, you say? :-)
ebonyfeather

Thanks!

No- the longer fic is different (based on the first drabble idea for this), although a longer version of this could be interesting...

Hee, I think a bored Becker will soon find something to interest him ;)

I'm sure that Connor can sidetrack him if he gets too annoying.

Nicely done (and I love when a drabble inspires a plot bunny to hop even more vigorously.....)

Thanks!

The long fic bunny is different to this (it was based on the first idea for the drabble)

Love the 'something-a-saurus' *g* This feels like a real scene, great job.

I don't think Becker cares too much what they are, as long as they don't get any closer!

Connor once said: Welcome to our world. And he's right. Poor Becks, welcome to the ARC's world (and beyond) *g*

He's just not used to sitting around, doing nothing while he waits.

He just doesn't like having to sit around and do nothing while they wait.

Someone's lacking some romance in their soul, aren't they? ;)

He's just grumpy because he's bored, and determined not to look for a bright side...

Erm, Becker, I wouldn't be throwing stones if I were you...

Nice one!
ebonyfeather

It's ok- Connor has assured him that the critters can't climb...

Aww, lovely scene. But bored Becker could spell trouble...
ebonyfeather

Thanks! If Becker gets any sillier ideas, I'm sure that Connor can find something to keep him entertained...
