“Maybe I should have moved the cake to somewhere more stable before trying to cut it,” Jack muttered by way of an apology.
“Could’ve been worse, at least there’s some left.” Rhys was determinedly cheerful.
“I’ll clean up the mess,” Ianto sighed.
“No need,” Jack grinned, pointing.
Meriel sat beside Nosy, shoving handfuls of cake in her mouth while Nosy ate the rest.
“Cake!” she giggled happily.
