Summary: April is given a way out. 
Author's Note: This was originally for Primeval Denial's Team Fest. however, when I went to get it beta'd I sent it to the wrong person, so it missed the last day of posting. However, I managed to get it beta'd in the end   fredbassettthank you! After LJ giving me some gip, I can now give you (those who are interested) the last April centric one shot in my PPF 'verse. I hope you like it. 


April climbed out of the shower and grabbed the towel.  She dabbed herself free of the majority of the water and strolled into her bedroom.

It would not be long now.  Connor was getting close to creating an artificial anomaly and her father’s future would be imminent.  April had everything prepared, her trip back was all sorted—the handheld device had the anomaly co-ordinates keyed in--and April had planned a few little farewell surprises for those beloved colleagues at the ARC.

Anderson’s new toy boy was going to have quite a shock for sure. Helen had outdone herself with the information she had given her.

“Do you know… I’d forgotten just how gorgeous we are!”

April dropped the towel, her hand lashed out to the drawer by her bedside and pulled out her gun. Turning round, she aimed it at her intruder and cursed when she saw who it was. She should have recognised the voice.  The gun dropped down onto the chest of drawers.

“It’s you,” she said, bile in her throat.

“Hmm…. you look absolutely divine! I could ravish you right now!”

She had changed a great deal from the scruffy unkempt woman she’d known in the future.  Dawn leaned against the door frame, biting on her finger as she looked at April with lustful eyes. She was dressed in a tight fitting, black and very short, oriental dress, long black boots high up her legs and her blonde hair loose about her shoulders. On her face she wore makeup. Her lips were redder, fuller and… her eyes… to April they looked even crazier than she had remembered.

“How… what are you doing here?”  April asked.

Dawn pursed her lips around her finger and pulled it out, sucking languidly and with delight.

“I’m here to see you! I’m here to see what it is my father wanted you to do! Why he couldn’t ask me I don’t know… but he obviously trusts you.”  Dawn walked towards April, her eyes looking up and down with the same lusting glare she had given her seconds after April’s creation.  “So tell me… what has father and Helen Cutter got you doing?”

April didn’t move. She didn’t even flinch as Dawn brought up her hand to touch her body.  The tips of her fingers grazed over her breasts, skimmed down her torso, across her thigh and bottom.  Such contact made her shiver.

Dawn was obviously in love with herself. She had proved that much with her touching and during the couple of times she had taken April to her bed. For someone who was obsessed with themself, a clone was just the perfect partner for them. But April wasn’t Dawn any more.

Helen had seen to that.

April might share her memories, but she had feelings of her own now and she didn’t like being touched like that, not by her.

A headache was pounding on the inside of April’s skull, threatening to crack it open and dribble out her brains, but she didn’t flinch or react.  April clenched her teeth and hands and used every ounce of control she could muster to prevent herself from breaking Dawn’s neck.

“I’m to ensure that the environment is right for father’s work,” April said, smiling forcibly.

“Father’s work?”  Dawn laughed and then firmly grasped April’s arse, squeezing the buttocks as she rubbed her face on April’s back. “Do you know what he’s really doing? What he’s hoping to accomplish?”

April knew all right.  The creatures needed to thrive. They were perfect in every way and what better chance for them to do so in an environment specially created for them?  At the same time it was the best opportunity to sort out the… overcrowding… problem.

“Why didn’t he send me?” Dawn took some of April’s wet hair in her hands and squeezed droplets of water out over her body. Her eyes eagerly watched the water slide over April’s skin, trailing to the curls of hair between her legs.  “Why did my father even create you… apart from the obvious? I could have done this for him. I could have…”

April expected it, but didn’t fight it.

She was suddenly slammed against the wall, her legs spread wide apart and her head pulled back as Dawn tugged hard on her hair. Dawn’s mouth pressed against her ear.

“Oh… I know you too well.  We are so alike!”  Dawn’s tongue lashed out and licked across April’s face.  “Tell me what’s going on? What are you hiding?”

April could feel the headache getting worse. The breath of her template was disgusting her, the feel of her pushing up against her naked body was making her physically sick, but April smiled.  She knew exactly what would make her ease away.

He’s here.”

It worked. 

It was difficult to believe that this woman had such a brilliant mind, that the term ‘genius’ could be used to describe her. Not when she squealed like a little girl and she hugged April with all her might.

“He is? What are the odds of that happening? That he would be here?”  Dawn forced April around and planted her hands on either side of her face. “What is he like? Has he changed much?”

“He’s grown. He’s a man now, not a boy. I’d say thirty three, thirty four. Anderson has lived a number of years in this period.”  April closed her eyes, knowing the kiss would come.

Dawn’s mouth smothered hers in a joyous and thankfully brief kiss, before she was spun around the room and dragged towards the bed. 

She shoved April down and jumped upon her, straddling her, taking hold of her hands to sway her arms from side to side.

“Tell me more! Tell me everything about him!” Dawn laughed and ground herself hard against April as she did so. “Sweet Matthew Anderson!  April, tell me now! Does he suffer? Does that voice of his and those eyes, still make you come in your pants? Oh god! Tell me you’re also here to cave his fucking skull in?"

In some ways they were two of a kind. April could relate to a lot that Dawn was expressing, for she felt it too. As Dawn’s hand wrapped around her throat, April looked up at her likeness and saw the rage. There was no denying they thought the same thing, and that as Dawn lightly squeezed, her nails digging in April’s skin, there was a huge desire to kill and hurt Matthew Anderson.

But Helen Cutter had changed things in April and the changes were for the better.

April could see the madness but no inkling of control at all and that was dangerous. Father knew… which was why April had been created in the first place.

April decided not to mention that Matt was screwing the arse off soldier boy, because that would make Dawn flip for sure.

In this time soldier boy and the prissy stuck up Victorian bitch had no idea who she was and wouldn't until much later in the future, but there was extremely bad blood where Becker and Merchant were concerned. Dawn loathed them for what they did, or rather will do, and if Dawn found out they were here, everything would be ruined. Dawn would not be able to control herself.

When she was able to breathe again, Dawn’s hand easing off her neck, April confirmed what Dawn had asked and more. She told her all about Matt, how his father was now dead and that he was barely holding together. April allowed her to rejoice.

Dawn jumped off of her and bounced happily on the bed like a child, before lying down next to April and smiling.

“Oh god! I have to see him, April! You have to let me see him!”

She would, but not just yet, not until April had the chance to work out how to get rid of her.

Dawn being here was trouble.


In the end, all April had to do was appeal to Dawn’s ego. With careful manipulation and immense flattery, April convinced Dawn to stay at Prospero’s facility taking her place, whilst she put everything else into motion. 

It was far too easy.  From a distance she calmly watched everything unravel.  Convergence came and went, a mere side effect of what she hoped and the chaos it dealt was wonderful, but not her ultimate goal.

April had absolutely no qualms as she watched the swarm of Anurognathus scoop the crazy bitch up off the ground and drop her over the ledge. She heard the crunch, the sound of Dawn’s body breaking and it was like music to her ears.

Dawn’s death liberated her more than April realised. She may have been a clone and they may have been alike… but in the end, April was superior.

She saw Matt kiss the Victorian woman before he got into the car and drove straight for the anomaly. She saw the anguish on all their faces as they believed him dead and it made her smile.

Grief turned to joy when Matt came back to them, but it wouldn’t last for long.

They believed that April Leonard was dead.

They thought they had stopped New Dawn.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

There was more to come.

April walked away from the happy trio and the desolation left behind by the anomaly.  She had a train to catch. It was time for her to go home and help father begin the next stage of the plan.

I love the fact that it's Dawn who got killed, no wonder she seemed way more batshit than before! These April fics have been very intriguing, I've enjoyed reading them.

Very clever set-up! I like the way you've foreshadowed this twist without revealing it up until now!

There will be a little bit more in my next PPF story as well! Cheers!
