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 1070: One Shot - Sequel to ‘Decoy’
Author's Notes: Part three of my drabble series written for Challenge 419 – Survival at tw100.

Summary: Although Jack is in peril Ianto can’t rush.

Ninety-seven, ninety-eight, ninety-nine… one hundred; finally! It wasn’t a moment too soon; Jack was tiring fast, stumbling as he tried to keep beyond reach of the monster’s savage teeth and claws.

Ianto snatched up the Big Gun, checking it and flicking the safety off. Raising it, he took careful aim just as Jack tripped, sprawling on the ground. The huge alien roared in triumph, lumbering towards its fallen foe. If it got its claws on Jack, his chances of survival would be zero, but Ianto couldn’t rush; he’d only get one shot before the gun needed recharging again.

He fired.
