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 197: Worth The Price - Companion piece to ‘Pale Purple Leather’
Author's Notes: The second drabble for my second completion of Challenge 300 at tw100. Seven more to post.

Summary: Owen sees Tosh gazing wistfully into a shop window and makes a decision.

Headed back to the Hub, it took Owen a moment to realise Tosh wasn’t with him. Turning around, he spotted her looking into a shop window and trudged back to join her.

“You okay?”

”Hmmm?” She tore her gaze away from the purple leather handbag she was staring at. “I’m fine. We should get back.” She scurried off.

Owen glanced at the price tag, muttered “Ouch!” and followed, but he couldn’t get her wistful expression out of his head.

A week later, he exited the shop with a package and a significantly lighter wallet.

“Expense be damned, Tosh deserves it.”
