Connor Temple sat bolt upright in bed, yelping. Panting, he switched off the alarm clock as Abby came running in the door;
"What's happened?!" she exclaimed.
"Er, nothing really. The alarm just startled me." Connor mumbled, going red. Abby rolled her eyes and strode out the room. Connor stuck his tongue out at her retreating back and heaved his heavy bones out of bed. Wiping the sleep out of his eyes, he walked over to the wardrobe and yanked it open. He stared at his selection of clothes and tried to figure out what he was supposed to do with them as Abby gripped him round the waist from behind. He jumped but managed not to yelp this time and instead turned his head to hers, and kissed her.
After Connor had remembered to put his socks on his feet and had really woken up, he threw down some breakfast and went to greet Sid and Nancy – He'd already said hi to Rex. They were busy eating another shoe. Connor gripped it and pulled. There was a very loud rip and he fell over backwards holding half a shoe as his phone beeped at him. He read the text and jumped to action as Abby ran in holding the Anomaly detector in one hand and a toothbrush in another. She dumped her stuff in the sink and looked at the half-shoe in Connor's hand.
"Connor!" she whined, as he pointed at Nancy with the funny grin on his face.
"C'mon." He beckoned, finding another shoe to put on, "The Anomaly opened again, we can put the Pterodactyl back now." He grinned at the memory of the capture of the beast. He had no idea how they were going to get it through, but they usually managed. Maybe they could lure it...
Connor ran into the Arc's holding centre, out in the middle of nowhere – closely followed by Abby to find Danny and Becker already there and waiting, their eyebrows raised.
"Sorry," Abby stated, "Someone wanted to stay in bed." WHAT? Connor's jaw dropped. He opened and closed his mouth several times to the others' amusement, but couldn't seem to find the words to express how unfair that statement was. Abby laughed at him and turned to the others.
"So, what have we got?" he finally said, glaring at Abby.
"Well, the Anomaly reopened, Sarah is over there, closing it so nothing comes through and we're here to bring this one-" Danny jerked his thumb at the giant cage behind him "Back through." Connor stuck out his bottom lip,
"Hey, I thought I was the one who dealt with the Anomaly technology." He whined.
"Yes, but we need you to help with this thing." He said as if speaking to a child. "Any ideas?"
Connor put his foot down, pressing the horn desperately. The Pterodactyl was getting closer, what made him think this was a good idea? Well at least it was following... He yelled at the car,
"Faster! Faster goddamn it!" As the giant creature bore down on him. Jerking the wheel sideways, he dodged the huge talons. There it was! The Anomaly was in the middle of the field in front of him. He hurtled off the road and drove through the field. Abby screamed at him from the back seat,
"Faster, Connor!" Yeah, as if he didn't know that! He swerved again as it screeched at him and heard a dull thud in the back seat, Abby! But he couldn't stop now.
"You okay?" He asked as she sat up again.
"Sure, hurry!" Connor breathed a sigh of relief as the talons finally got a hold on the car. His sigh died on his lips and turned into a yelp as the car was lifted off the ground.
"Jump!" He heard the shout from the back seat – and 3 doors being opened. He tried, but the door was jammed! He heard a scream as Abby fell and Becker and Danny went after her. Connor scrambled over to the other side of the car as they went through the Anomaly. He rapidly closed the door again.
He was in another world, one of the past. The sky was full of Pterodactyls and the ground suddenly fell away beneath him. He looked behind him and saw the Anomaly lock behind him... He was trapped.
