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 800: Ball Trouble
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 359: Balls at tw100.

Summary: Ianto’s not happy with Jack. What’s he done now?

“No, Jack, my BALLS! Are you even paying attention?” It was shouted loud enough that every head in the Hub turned towards Jack’s office.

Gwen, who’d just taken a sip of coffee, spat it out again rather spectacularly, then busied herself cleaning up the mess with a tissue, cheeks aflame.

At her workstation, Tosh ducked her head, her hair hiding her face, her shoulders shaking with suppressed laughter. Owen blanched, scurrying down to autopsy.

Ianto stalked out of Jack’s office, shaking his head. “He’s the one wanted to play tennis; now the idiot’s lost the bloody balls!” he announced, exasperated.
