Jack plucked the note from his desk; it was from Ianto.
The Doctor invited me to go travelling with him.
Sitting down heavily, Jack felt lost. Ianto had left? Well, why wouldn’t he? Hadn’t Jack done the same not long ago? At least Ianto left a note. Jack’s heart plummeted; would he ever return?
He was still sitting there staring at nothing when a mug of coffee appeared in front of him. There stood Ianto, looking exactly the same.
“Ianto! You’re back!”
“I never left.”
“But the note…”
“He asked. I refused. Now you know how I felt.”
