Author's Notes:
My third drabble for Challenge 352: In The Dark at tw100.

Summary: They’ve taken it back to the Hub, but what is it?

Ianto set the creature down and took the towel Jack held out.

“Any idea what it is?” he asked.

Jack looked at it critically.

“Mostly soggy.”

“Oh, that’s helpful. You’re supposed to be the expert!”

“I can’t be expected to know every species in the universe!

“So we’re in the dark on this one?”

“Looks that way. Seems harmless though.”

“Yeah, well let’s just hope getting it wet doesn’t change that.”

“I don’t think it’ll dissolve.”

“Not what I meant. Haven’t you seen Gremlins?”

“You’ll have to be more specific; there’s a lot of different species.”

“Forget I said anything.”
