Summary: Abby chickened out.
Notes/Warnings: HET! I wrote HET! BUT THEY MADE ME. 3.02 Spoilers.

Abby knows what she said to Jenny, that she was about to finally do something about the awkward attraction between her and Connor.  And she wanted to, god she did, but she’d chickened out. Pulled back at the last moment and turned it into a joke, a silly moment that meant nothing.

Or at least she had tried to.


Connor was waiting for her when she finally made it home, crashed out on the couch and staring cross eyed at Rex on the armrest.  He sat up when she walked in, obviously trying for smooth but actually managing to flail a little as he overbalanced his movement.

Her head was sore and she was exhausted but she answered his smile with one of her own.

He pushed himself off the couch and picked up a glass and two pills from table.  He placed the pills in her hand and handed her the water when she threw them back.

“Maybe I was lying a bit when I said that I was fine.”  She rubbed her temples.

Connor helped her to the couch and she folded backwards into the pillows, already warm with Connor’s heat and then between blinks she was out.


Rex was inspecting her forehead when her eyes opened again, entirely too close to focus on so that he was just a green blob that appeared interested in tasting her hair. Her head was still a little uncomfortable but it no longer pounded when she sat up.  She could feel the slight sting that said someone had been chopping onion and smell garlic, which meant that Connor was cooking, he was fond of his Italian.

Connor stuck his head out of the kitchen when he heard her get to her feet, licking bolognaise sauce off his fingers.

“You’ve got excellent timing, food’s ready if you’re up to it.”  

He carried out two bowls and sat them down on the table. He dug his fork into his, twirling the pasta.

“I was scared.” He said after a moment, staring at his pasta.

Abby looked at him questioningly.

“When you screamed. I was scared.” He looked up at her as if waiting for a reaction, then quirked a grin.  “I’m not stupid Abby, I know when someone’s going to kiss me, especially when it’s someone I pay attention to.”

Abby flushed, caught.

Connor leant over, pressed a kiss to the edge of Abby’s mouth and smiled, amused.

“Your turn.”

*Grin* they were so sweet, I just had to write happy for them.

They did make me, when they're staring at each other being so cute in the house I just wanted to squish them.

That was sweet. I liked the little moment with them in the house as well.

I KNOW! It hurt. But I wanted them as a couple so hard it hurt. First season no, Second season they pushed them together so annoyingly and it shits me, but this season they're perfect and natural and I love it. Season 3 is making Season 2 looks so much shittier in comparison.

I'm missing Stephen too much to be on board with S3 so far. It's been OK, but for me I'm a Series 1 girl.

I adored Stephen so much at the beginning of Season 1, but that's cause he was pretty and I was shallow and then I didn't love him as much. And then came Season 2 and I got bloody sick of him, so actually I don't miss Stephen much at all. So I think i'm looking at Season3 with a blank slate.

Awwwwwww!! Friggin precious! Gah! I wanted them to kiss so badly in that scene...but I guess I better prepare myself for the dance they'll be doing around each other all season...I don't think we'll be getting that kiss anytime soon.

I KNOW! I wanted to squish them. Oh yeah, this season is going to be full of UST, but I find that I actually don't mind that much. :D

From: [identity profile] oc-pixie.livejournal.com

Yeah I don't mind it either...makes for more entertaining play...but still...doesn't keep me from wanting to see them kiss!

Thanks, it takes a pretty special pairing to make me write het, but they're just so cute.

From: [identity profile] deinonychus-1.livejournal.com



How adorable was that! So cute and huggable. *snuggles fic*

And also, can I have Connor to look after me next time I get concussed, please?

From: [identity profile] noxnoctisanima.livejournal.com

Yes you can *hands* but I totally want one for all time, not just when i'm hurty :D

From: [identity profile] twonk-a-bella.livejournal.com

Bloody hell Nox, that's just...just...*dies*

Totally perfect, and now all I can see is Connor licking his fingers. Nice you managed to get my two favourite things in there; Bolognese and Connor :P
