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 876: Surprised
Author's Notes: My fifth drabble for Challenge 377: Surprise at tw100.

Summary: It’s not the surprise Ianto was expecting…

Ianto groaned. He should’ve known Jack would do something like this. He’d said he didn’t want a birthday party, just a quiet evening at home after the madness of the last month. Jack had even sent him home early, saying he’d join him later.

Then he’d got the phone call from Owen saying there was an emergency and he was needed back at the Hub.

He’d expected a surprise party, but instead…

“I’m sorry, Ianto, I was baking your cake!” Jack moaned. “I wanted to surprise you.”

“I’m surprised,” Ianto admitted.

The cooker had exploded; now Jack was completely bald.

The End
