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 286: Unlucky In Love
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘Don't Let Me Be Lonely’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 292: Billboard Hot 100 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.

Summary: Tosh thinks about the lack of love in her life.

Tosh had become resigned to the fact that she was unlucky in love. Even before she joined Torchwood, she’d never had much luck with relationships. There were always reasons. She was too shy, too quiet, too smart, too studious.

It didn’t help that she often got crushes on boys who weren’t interested. History repeated itself with Owen in that respect.

She’d thought her luck had changed with Mary, who turned out to be using her, and then with Tommy, who returned to his own time.

Watching a falling star, she found herself wishing, ‘Please don’t let me be lonely forever.’

The End
