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 613: Starting Over
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 325 – Clean Slate at tw100.

Summary: Ianto wants to leave his past behind and start afresh.

He’d grown up an estate kid with a bad reputation and a police record for shoplifting. He’d been careless the first time and got caught, but that had only served to make him more cautious. He’d never slipped up again.

Not that he’d been some criminal mastermind or anything; he’d nicked smokes, sweets, the occasional CD or bit of cheap jewellery for a girlfriend.

Moving to London was his chance to leave the past behind, reinvent himself. No one need ever know who he’d been before. He could wipe the slate clean and start over. Ianto couldn’t wait to escape.

The End
