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 844: Feeling Old
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 370: Old Age at tw100.

Summary: Sometimes, life with Torchwood ages you.

“You okay?” Jack asked as Ianto flopped onto the sofa beside him with a heartfelt groan.

“I’m fine, just feeling my age.”

Jack snorted. “You’re twenty-five, that’s hardly the depths of old age.”

“Okay, then I’m just feeling your age.” Ianto glared at Jack balefully.

“Ouch! Thanks a lot! I may be old, but I’m very well preserved.” Jack leered at his lover and waggled his eyebrows. “Not a single grey hair, and I’ve still got all my own teeth!”

“Only because they grow back when they get knocked out,” Ianto muttered.

“Yeah, well, being immortal does have some advantages!”
