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 683: Warning
Author's Notes: My tenth drabble for Challenge 334 – Red at tw100.

Spoilers: Small Worlds.

Summary: To anyone else, it would just be a rose petal.

Even now, after so many years, the sight of a red rose petal on his desk chills Jack to the bone.

It’s the Fae; he knows it as surely as if he’d seen them place the petal there themselves. The memory of the day they killed his whole squad to avenge the death of their chosen one is as vivid now as the day it happened. It’s something he’ll never forget.

Whatever is happening, the petal is a warning not to interfere, a reminder that no one can hide from their vengeance.

It’s a warning he’s not about to ignore.

The End
