Author's Notes:
This is the second of three drabbles I wrote for Challenge 255 - Sink or Swim over at tw100. It was written at practically the same time as my friend timelordshines wrote her drabble Last Chance – in fact when I wrote it, I gave it the same title, I think we must be sharing the same brain. Anyway, she posted hers first so I changed my title, although part of me wanted to call it Last Chance: The Prequel because they just fit together so well - mine ends at the point where hers begins!

Summary: Getting a job at Torchwood Three proves difficult for Ianto.

He’d stalked Harkness for weeks, waiting for the right opportunity to present itself. Rescued him from a weevil and got the brush off.

Stalked him some more, offered him coffee, which obviously met with his approval. Got the brush off again. What did it take to impress the guy? Something different, something new.

When he stumbled across the Pterodactyl, managed to lure it into an empty warehouse using chocolate, he knew it was his final chance because he’d never find something to top this!

Waiting by the road in the rain, he steeled himself. This was it. Sink or swim.
