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 801: Balls! – Part 1
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 359: Balls at tw100, and the first part in a short series. I don't know yet exactly how many parts there will be, but probably at least four.

Summary: Whatever is Ianto shouting about?

It had been a routine retrieval, until Ianto shot from an alleyway, running flat out.

“Balls!” he yelled, heading towards Jack.

Jack looked down at his trousers, just in case he’d forgotten something.

“No, twpsyn, balls!” Ianto snapped exasperatedly, pointing behind him and sprinting past Jack as though the hounds of Hell were at his heels.

Puzzled, Jack turned his attention to the alley Ianto had been investigating just as several large, menacingly spiky balls emerged from it. They hesitated briefly before rolling towards him, rapidly picking up speed.

With an audible gulp, Jack bolted after Ianto.

“Wait for me!”
