Author's Notes:
My fourth - and probably final - drabble for Challenge 341: Pies at tw100. This one has two versions, the official drabble and the extended 150 word version, which I prefer.

Summary: Jack cooks up a treat.

Drabble version


Strolling through ASDA, doing the shopping, Jack stopped so suddenly that Ianto walked smack into him.

“Ow! Watch where you’re going!”

“Wasn’t my fault, you shouldn’t have stopped. Why did you?”

“Rhubarb,” was Jack’s helpful answer.

“Of course,” Ianto replied, deadpan.


OoOoO


Hours later, Ianto watched Jack take the rhubarb pie out of the oven and cut into it, letting out clouds of steam and an enticing aroma. Waiting for it to cool enough to eat was torture.

When he finally sampled it, Ianto decided he must be in heaven.

“Delicious! I must admit, this was one of your better ideas!”



The End



Extended version


Strolling through ASDA, doing the shopping one relatively lazy day, Jack stopped so abruptly that Ianto, who was walking behind him studying his shopping list, walked smack into him.

“Ow!” Jack yelped. “Watch where you’re going!”

“Wasn’t my fault, you shouldn’t have stopped without warning. Why did you?”

“Rhubarb,” was Jack’s helpful answer.

“Of course,” Ianto replied, deadpan.


OoOoOoO


Later that afternoon, sitting in their cosy kitchen, Ianto watched as Jack took the freshly baked rhubarb pie out of the oven and cut into it, letting out a cloud of steam and a mouth-watering aroma. Waiting for it to cool enough for them to eat was sheer torture.

When he finally got to sample it, Ianto decided he must be in heaven.

“Delicious! I have to admit, this was one of your better ideas!”

“There’s nothing to beat a homemade rhubarb pie,” Jack agreed. “More custard?”

“Don’t mind if I do.”
