You Show Me Yours

“If you were a Watcher, where’s your tattoo?” Abby asked, examining Adam’s wrist curiously.

“Burnt it; the skin healed fresh,” he replied, showing her the virgin spot on his wrist where the symbol of the Watchers had resided for fifteen years.

“You mean if Richie injures his shoulder then he’ll lose his?” she said, her voice becoming a little higher pitched with nervousness. Adam nodded. Abby looked devastated by the news. “He said I’d always have his back,” she said quietly, almost to herself.

Adam laid a comforting arm on her shoulder.

“I’m sure he’d get it replaced.”

Abby looked a little mollified, but she was clearly unhappy. She crossed her arms and pouted.

“S’not the same.”

Adam moved closer, wrapping his arm around her. He grinned and in a low voice spoke into her ear.

“I do have another tattoo if you want to see that.”

Abby looked at him for a moment before bursting out laughing.

“Jeez, do all Immortals use such cornball lines?” she asked, still laughing. “You’re as bad as Richie!”

“Well there’s no need to insult me!” Adam replied indignantly and withdrew his arm. He looked at her briefly before he too started to laugh.

love it, especially the touch of melancholy you manage to sneak in there from Abby.

Thanks hon, glad you enjoyed. I felt it was important to balance out the fluff ;-)

That picture you used for your icon is the pic I chose to come up if you text me on my new phone. Coincidence! :)

LOL Thanks hon. I'm working on the next proper part too, but I'm having to do something I don't normally write - an actual plot. It's hard work! *grin*

Wonderful! They both are so real:). They should talk more, Abby sure is refreshing for Methos:).
But, I don't want to be a pie,: highlander xmasidontlikegravy on December 18th, 2009 04:20 pm (UTC)
Yeah, she is. I see Abby as being infectious in a really good way and I think even Methos' world weary cynicism would be worn away a little by Abs. :)

Thank you, I'm really glad you liked it.
