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 1069: Decoy – Sequel to ‘Expendable’
Author's Notes: Second part of my drabble series for Challenge 419 – Survival at tw100.

Summary: Ianto worries about Jack while waiting for the Big Gun to charge.

Even knowing deep down that Jack was right, it wasn’t easy for Ianto to stand back and watch the man he loved play decoy, running out into the path of the monster, luring it further from habitation. The only good thing was that the creature was so big it manoeuvred slowly. Jack was practically running rings around it, firing his Webley, not that the puny bullets made any impression on the creature’s tough hide.

The Big Gun was seventy-five percent charged. Ianto could only wait and pray that Jack would survive long enough for it to reach a hundred percent.
