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 549: The Monster
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘The Monster’, 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: The Torchwood children are hiding from a monster.

Meriel and Anwen hid behind the sofa, trying to stay quiet as mice so the monster wouldn’t find them. They knew it was looking for them, they could hear it moving around the room. They held each other’s hands and stayed as still as possible. Maybe it would give up soon.

Just when they thought it had gone, a head poked around the back of the sofa, big eyes staring straight at them. They’d been found!


Giggling and squealing, they dashed out and pounced on their monster, hugging it tight.

“You win, Nosy! Now it’s your turn to hide!”
