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 480: Ianto Is Late!
Author's Notes: My eleventh drabble for Challenge 318 – Long Overdue at tw100. I don't have any more written, I need more ideas!

Summary: Where’s Ianto? He’s late for work!

Jack paced his office, worry creasing his forehead. Ianto was late. Ianto was never late! He paced some more, checked his watch again. How long overdue did someone have to be before it was acceptable to send out a search party?

Something must have happened; otherwise he would’ve phoned to say he’d been delayed. Maybe he had phoned! Jack checked his phone was on. Of course it was. No missed calls either. He went back to pacing.

Finally, the cog door rolled back.

“You’re late!”

Ianto rolled his eyes.

“Only by seven minutes, Jack!”

“Where were you? I was worried!”

The End
