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 1049: Not Alone
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 414: Stalk at tw100.

Summary: Solo retrievals can be dangerous…

It’s late, night fell hours ago, but the Rift doesn’t operate on a set schedule so all of Torchwood are used to working odd hours. They’re used to going on solo retrievals too, and as they know what lurks in the shadowy places of Cardiff, they’re always especially alert when they’re alone on the dark, deserted streets.

But Ianto knows he’s not alone out here, his heightened senses tell him he’s being followed.

Ducking around a corner, he doubles back, coming at his stalker from behind.

“Jack! What’re you doing here?”

Jack held something up. “You forgot your gloves.”

The End
