The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 1032: Dangerous Job
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 410: Hand at tw100.

Summary: Working for Torchwood can be hazardous to your health.

The cellar they were searching was pitch black, which was okay because some light was coming through the trapdoor above them, and Ianto, efficient as always, had a torch.

At least he did until Owen, shifting an old sofa to look behind it, bumped into a stack of boxes, which fell on Ianto, knocking him down and making him drop his torch, breaking it.

As Jack went to help Ianto the trapdoor slammed shut, plunging them into total darkness.

Chaos ensued.

“Who the fuck’s standing on my hand?” Ianto yelped.

“Me, I think. Sorry, mate,” Owen apologised.

“You will be!”
