Terminator:SCC Drabble: "Enigmatic Loyalties" (PG)

Title: Enigmatic Loyalties
Fandom: Terminator: SCC
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Jesse, Derek, Derek/Jesse (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary: Motives are always colored by context.
Author's Notes: Written for drabble_las and the prompt of "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way." That idea applies to a lot of characters and choices in Terminator:SCC, but Jesse's story was the one that actually worked as a drabble.
Also for writers_choice, this is "tomorrow."


When Jesse realized she and Derek were from different futures, she was glad her mission was private. He wouldn't have understood.

In her future, the machines were stronger. They'd been trusted too far, and the humans were nearly finished. John Connor's Resistance came too late.

Jesse journeyed to the past, hoping to subvert John's trust in the robot Future-John loved too much.

Derek wouldn't have believed the threat if he'd seen it—his loyalty to Future-John was blind.

Jesse distracted Derek, kept tabs on John, and shepherded her plan along.

Saving the world's future was the loneliest secret of all.
