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 933: Lost...
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 389: Rats at tw100. First of a two-parter.

Summary: Owen’s lost something important, but finding it might not be easy.

“Owen, why are you crawling around on the floor?” Ianto sounded amused but slightly wary. Odd behaviour among team members could be an indication of a serious, alien-related problem.

“One of my lab rats got out.”

That was reassuringly normal at least. “Which one? I’ll keep a look out for it.”

“Won’t help, it’s the one I was testing that invisibility ray on.”

“Ah. Well, if it’s invisible, how do you know it’s escaped?”

Owen looked at Ianto as if he was an idiot. “Because I accidentally left the cage door open.”

Ianto rolled his eyes. “Of course you did.”
