Second Shadow, G, 100 words

Title: Second Shadow
Characters: Jenny, Nick, Connor, Abby
Rating: G
Word count: 100
Summary: Jenny Lewis has two shadows.
Notes: Written for the 'Big Brother' prompt on primeval100. Many thanks to atraphoenix for betaing!



“How did you know it was my birthday?” Jenny asked, during her second glass of wine.

Connor paused in his debate with Abby (something about Godzilla being misunderstood) to answer, “The Professor told us.”

She was somewhere between the fourth and sixth drink when she leaned over the table and addressed the question directly to Cutter.

He hesitated.

“Connor hacked into the personnel records,” he said, smiling awkwardly.

“I’m sure that’s illegal, and if not, it’s inappropriate. Cheers,” she added, and clinked her glass against his.

It was so much easier to believe in than Claudia Brown, her second shadow.

Thanks. I had fun writing it, and it's now spawned an idea threatening to be epic and incoherent.
