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 370: One Good Reason
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘Just Give Me A Reason’, 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: A sort of sequel to ‘A New Dream’. Jack returns home and seeks Ianto’s forgiveness.

Spoilers For: End of Days, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Jack knew that despite Ianto agreeing to a date, the Welshman was still angry with him for leaving without a word.

“I’m sorry, Ianto. If I could do things over, I’d make sure I left a message so you’d know I would be back. I’d just waited so long; I couldn’t miss the chance. I didn’t know if I’d ever get another one.”

“I understand that, Jack. I do. But it doesn’t change the fact that you abandoned us. Abandoned me. Just give me one good reason why I should forgive you.”

“Because I love you.”

It was reason enough.

The End
