Peace and Quiet


Becker sat in the grasses on the hillside, the sunshine warm on his skin, and looked around. It was so calm here after the chaos he faced every day; no rampaging creatures, no scientists who didn’t listen to a word he said even when he was trying to protect them.

 

In the valley below him, a couple of dinosaurs grazed on the foliage. He had no idea what they were but they hadn’t bothered him so far. Stretching out his legs he leaned back against the tree trunk behind him.

 

All in all, there were worse places to be stranded.

It's got to be more relaxing than trying to make the team behave...

*g* Sometimes, the unexpected (assuming it wasn't deliberate, xP) holidays are the best!

True. If he's stuck, he might as well enjoy it.

Thanks- glad you liked it.

Yes, I did make the icons. At present, they aren't shareable as I like to keep hold of the few that I use for comments/replies.

Brilliant drabble. Makes a nice change to read about one of the team being glad they're stuck in the past.

Thanks. After the almost-impossible job of trying to keep the team out of trouble, I think anyone would be glad of a break!

Becker seems to have taken it very well, then. Good for him!

He strikes me as the kind of person to think that panicking is rather pointless.

Thanks for reading.

Lovely, and I'm sure Becker will make the most of his relaxing team-free break.

He's got to get a bit of peace when he can!

Glad you liked it.
