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 887: A DI’s Tale – Part 2
Author's Notes: Part two of my drabble series for Challenge 379: Cardiff Constabulary at tw100.

Summary: Kathy comes to some conclusions about the monster. They’re not comforting.

Kathy was pretty good at staring contests; there wasn’t much that could intimidate her. She’d earned the respect of her colleagues in the Cardiff Constabulary by proving herself as tough as any man, able to stare down the most hardened rapists and murderers.

But this was different, this wasn’t some low-life human, wasted on drugs; in fact it wasn’t human at all, she’d bet a year’s wages on that.

And yet, it was no animal either; the creature’s eyes held a feral hunger, but also intelligence.

Nothing had ever scared her like this thing did; it didn’t belong on earth.
