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 371: One Hell Of A Life
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘Helluva Life’, 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 lot can change in fifty years, but some things just get better.

They sat side by side on the park bench, an elderly couple enjoying the warm summer sunshine as they watched children play. Many years ago they’d done the same thing, but back then the children had been their own sons and daughters.

Cardiff had changed dramatically in the last fifty years, but Bute Park remained a green oasis in the heart of the city; it had always been one of their favourite places.

Tosh squeezed Owen’s hand.

“What are you thinking about?”

He smiled at his wife.

“We’ve had one hell of a life, but I wouldn’t change a thing.”
