Author's Notes:
For the prompt ‘Howard and the Great Outdoors’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 288 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use. Since Torchwood doesn’t have a Howard, I though Owen would be a fitting substitute ;)

Summary: Torchwood are out in the countryside again, much to one person’s displeasure.

Owen was grumbling again.

“I hate the countryside!”

“We know.” Ianto rolled his eyes. “You’ve told us enough times!”

“Come on, Owen, lighten up,” said Jack cheerfully. “Feel the sunshine. Breathe that air! It’ll do you good. No traffic fumes our here.”

“Exactly. It’s too clean; it’s disgusting. There’s nothing out here! This is no place for civilised people, it’s all grass and mud and sheep!”

With Owen’s next step, there was a rather unpleasant squelch from beneath his foot.


Ianto smirked.

“Yep! Looks like there are cows out here too.”

“Bloody countryside! Next time, I’m staying in Cardiff!”

The End
