Drabble: Dinner Date

Fandom: Primeval
Pairing: Connor / Ryan
Rating: PG-13
Notes: For primeval100 challenge 200: Past Challenges (using # 44 - Connor Temple, 48 - Captain Tom Ryan, 26 - Dining Out)  




 

Connor Temple

 

Connor tugged uncomfortably at his tie but Abby slapped his hand away and neatened it again.

 

“What time is it?”

 

Abby sighed. “Thirty seconds after you last asked me.”

 

He couldn’t help it; he was nervous. This would be their first real date. What if he made a total idiot of himself? He wasn’t the most socially apt person and if he tended to talk too much when he got nervous.

 

This was going to be a disaster.

 

“Relax, Connor,” Abby told him. “You’ll be fine.”

 

The doorbell rang and Abby gave him a push to go and answer it.

 

 

Captain Tom Ryan

 

Ryan stood at the door, wondering for the fiftieth time what he was doing here. Sure, they’d had a few drinks after work, but that had always been with the others present as well. They could talk about their day, have a laugh, but this? He liked Connor, but the kid was a genius. He hadn’t even gone to university; he was a soldier- that was all he really knew. What would someone like Connor see in him? What if they just sat there, unable to find anything to talk about?

 

Raising his hand, he knocked sharply on the door.

 

 

Dining Out

 

“You know, I was a bit nervous about tonight,” Connor admitted, taking another sip of his wine.

 

Ryan smiled. “Me too. I’m glad you agreed to have dinner with me, though.”

 

His fear that they would have nothing in common had proved incorrect and they had been talking for hours. Ryan glanced at his watch, surprised to see that it was almost midnight.

 

“We should probably leave,” he said.

 

“I suppose.” Connor agreed reluctantly. “I’ve really enjoyed this.”

 

“Are you in a hurry to get home?” Ryan asked. Connor shook his head. “Then how about a nightcap at my place?”
