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 322: Goodnight Sweet Ferret – Sequel to ‘Ferreting About’
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘Goodnight Sweet Ferret’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 288 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: The ferrets have worn themselves out, it’s time for a nap.

Although it was fun being a ferret, it was also tiring. After all the chasing, wresting, exploring, grooming and… other things, both ferrets were growing weary. They’d slowed from their earlier mad scampering to a more sedate pace, just ambling about, sniffing here and there, slowly wending their way back to where their adventure began.

Creeping under the sofa, they snuggled up together for a nap, licking each other sleepily.

A while later, the blue-grey ferret awoke; it licked the striped ferret’s head, then driven by an instinct it didn’t understand, moved away, curling up under the coffee table, alone.
