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 661: Mystery Worm
Author's Notes: My fourth drabble for Challenge 331 – Worms at tw100.

Summary: There’s a lurker in the Hub’s lower levels.

They didn’t know much about it, just that it was alien and lurked in the lower levels. It had been there since before Jack was ‘recruited’.

Torchwood’s records said it had been captured back in the 1880s, and had escaped shortly after being brought back to the Hub. No one had ever been able to re-capture it, though many had tried over the years, laying various kinds of traps. It was rarely seen, and mostly forgotten about.

Ianto smiled as he watched the glowing blue three-foot long worm sipping coffee from a saucer. Jack was never going to believe this!
