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 513: Goodbye Town
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘Goodbye Town’, 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: Ianto starts on the journey that leads him to Torchwood One.

Ianto felt like a heavy weight had been lifted from his shoulders.

The funeral was over, his father was gone and he was free at last. There was nothing left to hold him here on the estate; finally he could escape, spread his wings and fly. He already knew where he’d go.

London beckoned, a place no one knew him; he could start over, reinvent himself and become something more than an estate kid. He had dreams, ambitions. He’d make something of his life; prove everyone wrong.

His only regret on leaving his hometown was that he hadn’t left sooner.

The End
