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 66: Overwhelmed
Author's Notes: My first (and possibly only) drabble for Challenge 280 – Bad Advice at tw100.

Not what I wanted to write for this prompt, but try as I might, I couldn’t make a fluffy Nosy-Verse drabble out of it. Apologies for the angst.

Summary: Tosh knows she should never have listened to Mary in the first place…

It was her own fault really. She’d let Mary persuade her to wear the pendant — again.

“You need to go somewhere public, somewhere crowded.”

So she had and now she’d heard something she couldn’t ignore, something she had no choice but to try to prevent. You can’t overhear someone planning murder and just ignore it.

Now she was here, trying to stop a complete stranger from murdering his ex-wife and child. How was she ever going to explain this to the police — to Jack?

Why had she ever listened to Mary? She’d heard too much already, but she couldn’t stop…

The End
