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 1052: After The Battle
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 415: Silence at tw100.

Summary: Torchwood thwarts another invasion attempt.

The battle was over, the cacophony of gunfire fallen away into breathless silence. The members of Team Torchwood looked around themselves, surprised and relieved to see all their teammates still standing.

The invasion force hadn’t fared so well; half a hundred bodies littered the churned-up grass, multiple limbs askew, their blood mixing with the Cardiff mud.

Explaining this away would take some doing; sometimes Jack wished they could come right out and tell the world that yes, aliens are real, but he knew they couldn’t. Humanity wasn’t ready.

He drew a breath, breaking the silence. “Okay, kids, it’s cleanup time.”
