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!

Chapter 1048: Stalking Prey
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 414: Stalk at tw100.

Summary: Something is stalking the team.

It lurks in the shadows of the Hub, hidden from sight under convenient pieces of furniture, watching the humans going about their work, oblivious to its presence.

It moves, slowly and stealthily, slipping from one hiding place to the next, as it continues to stalk its unwary prey, waiting for one to drift close enough for it to strike.

It is patient, as it must be; not all of those present meet its requirements, so it must wait until one suited to its purpose comes within reach.


Its attack draws a cry!

“Damn it! Dizzy untied my shoelaces again!”
