Author's Notes:
My fourth and final drabble for Challenge 372: Party at tw100.

Summary: Ianto accidentally breaks a promise, among other things.

“It’s Mica’s party tomorrow,” Rhiannon reminded Ianto over the phone. “You’ll be there won’t you? She’s really looking forward to seeing you.”

“I’ll be there. Three o’clock, right? I hope she’ll like her present.”

“If it’s from you, I’m sure she’ll love it.”


Three o’clock came and went with no uncle Ianto. Mica hid it well, but she was disappointed. Just after four, the doorbell rang. Rhi pulled it open ready to let rip, but…

“Oh my God! What happened?”

“Sorry I’m late. Broke my ankle, been in casualty getting it plastered.” Ianto looked sheepish. “I tripped over Mica’s present.”
