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!

Summary: Owen wonders why he reacted so badly to Diane leaving.

Owen looked around his apartment in disgust; empty bottles lay everywhere, a few half-eaten takeaways scattered among them. How had he let this happen? Even after Katie he’d had enough pride to keep his home in order but since Diane flew out of his life he’d really let himself go.

He’d only known her a matter of days, but he’d fallen hard. She’d been the first person he’d allowed himself to really care for since Katie, but even so, her leaving shouldn’t have destroyed him like this.

Had Bilis Manger manipulated their emotions more than any of them had realised?
