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 350: Something To Hide
Author's Notes: My thirteenth drabble for tw100's Open Challenge. Another for Challenge 90: Beatles Titles. Thought I’d give this one a go, just because it’s such a crazy song title.

Summary: Jack is suspicious of people who claim not to know anything.

The man Jack had been questioning claimed he had no idea what had been going on in his warehouse, but Jack didn’t believe him.

“I don’t trust him, he knows something and I wanna know what. Put him under surveillance, run a full background check, see if he has a record.”

“He might be innocent,” Gwen objected.

Jack shook his head.

“There’s an old saying on Boeshane, no idea where it came from originally. Translates as ‘Everybody’s got something to hide, except me and my monkey’.”

Ianto snorted.


“I know where that came from, it’s an old Beatles song.”
