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 903: Little Lost Sock - Sequel to ‘The Loneliness Of A Single Sock’
Author's Notes: Part five of my drabble series written for Challenge 381: Pair at tw100.

Summary: The sock is found!

It takes Ianto nearly an hour of diligent searching, through the kitchen, hallway, staircase, landing, and bedroom, before he finally tracks his little lost sock to the en suite, where he discovers it lying dejectedly underneath the bathroom stool. There are a few dust bunnies under there too; maybe they abducted the sock.

He picks the fluff off and triumphantly returns the sock to its mate, setting it down alongside the one he’d left on the bed, but if he’s expecting a joyful reunion, he’s disappointed. Single socks look sad, but two just look like a pair. Maybe they’re shy.
