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 763: Little Balls
Author's Notes: My second drabble for For: Challenge 347: Silver at tw100, and the first of a short series.

Summary: The Rift has gifted Torchwood with something… unidentified.

The Rift was well known for dumping strange, unidentifiable objects on Cardiff. This time it was thirty-seven silver balls, slightly bigger than marbles.

“So what do you think they are?” Tosh asked.

“Beats me. Never seen anything like them,” Jack admitted. “They’re warm, and kinda pretty.”

“That how you want me to catalogue them?” asked Ianto in a dry tone. “Pretty little warm balls?”

Jack smirked. “It’s as good a description as any. Tosh, run some tests, see if you can learn anything.”

“No need,” said Ianto looking in the box. “They’re eggs.”

“How’d you work that out?”

“They’re hatching.”
