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 757: First Birthday
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 345: Cake at tw100.

Summary: It’s Meriel’s first birthday, but not everything goes to plan.

It was Meriel’s first birthday; all her family and friends were gathered to help her celebrate. Rhys had done himself proud with the party food and everyone was having fun with dancing and party games.

Meriel was almost buried under all her gifts, happily tearing off the paper and waving it around, giggling. No doubt she’d play with her new toys later, once the crinkly novelty of their wrapping wore off.

Finally, the big moment came.

“Time to cut the cake!”

Jack made his first cut, the table tipped, and the cake slid off, right on top of Nosy.
