Notes: For primeval100: challenge 239: The Home Office.
When I grow up…
When she was ten, Claudia Brown expected to be a supermodel when she got older. At twelve- and after seeing a James Bond film for the first time- she’d changed her mind. Claudia Brown: Secret Agent sounded much cooler.
Instead of becoming a globetrotting secret agent, however, Claudia spent her days sitting behind a desk in the Home Office. Her mother was happy that she had a nice, steady job but to Claudia it was a bit of a let down.
Until the day she was sent to investigate a probable prank call about creatures in the Forest of Dean…
Claudia stood and watched as Nick Cutter tried to explain to Lester why, only hours earlier, a dinosaur had been rampaging through the Forest of Dean.
She was expecting the case to be taken away from her, given to one of her more experienced colleagues, but she was keeping her fingers crossed. She knew that they had sent her out this morning because no one else wanted to go, and she was glad. This was the most exciting thing to happen to her during her time with the Home office and she wasn’t ready to give it up just yet.
