Author's Notes:
Because of the comments I got on the previous drabble, I was inspired to write this one. It’s a double drabble.

For 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. Prompt at the end.

Summary: Ianto gets a surprise!

His first day off in a month was warm and sunny, so Ianto decided to take advantage of the weather to do a spot of gardening. He’d been neglecting his little garden and the weeds were taking over. Pulling on his gardening trousers, a pair of patched and faded denims he would’ve thrown out long ago if they hadn’t been so comfortable, he popped his earphones in, turned up the volume, and stepped out into the sunshine.

Weeding was relaxing and Ianto was lost in his own little world when suddenly a hand grabbed his arse. With a yelp, he leapt up, the point of his elbow colliding with something solid, and spun around to find Jack sprawled on the lawn, clutching his eye.

“Fuck, Jack, are you trying to give me a heart attack?” Ianto removed his earphones.

“Owowow! What was that for?”

“You grabbed my arse!”

“You were wriggling it about, I thought you wanted me to!”

“I didn’t even know you were there, I had my earphones in! What’re you doing here, didn’t you have a meeting today?”

“It got cancelled so I thought I’d surprise you.”

“Congratulations, you succeeded!”


“Apology accepted. You okay?”

“I’ll live.”

The End

A/N2: Prompt used was ‘Beware of the Elbow’
