Summary: Jack is blind, Gwen is herself, Ianto is angry.
Disclamer: I don’t own Torchwood
The look they gave to Jack’s office should have warned her that something was wrong. But, she was Gwen Elisabeth Cooper (soon-to-be Williams) so she didn’t bothered or she didn’t understood. Probably both. She was THE Heart of Torchwood (yes, in capital letters, bold and underlined) so she will be resolve any problem with her marvellous… whatever she used to resolve problems with. Note the sarcasm here.
She walked into the office, not even knocking on the door and began to talk. One-half hour later, they both got out the office, smiling and chatting and joking. Something broke into Ianto.
“So, this is it?” Jack looked at the young Welshman, not understanding what’s happening.
“During the past few days, you have been insufferable. We tried to help you, even if it was difficult because you didn’t tell us anything and we had to guess and then, she walked in and it’s enough to make you normal again.”
“Ianto, are you jealous?” Jack was smiling. That made Ianto angrier.
“Jealous of what? It’s not like we have something! Each time we planned a date, coincidentally, she got an argument with Rhys and you came running. Does it came in your mind that, maybe, she was doing this on purpose.”
“Really, Ianto, it’s not like you…” Gwen began.
“Oh, just shut up! Do you think I don’t know that you want shag him? Huh? It’s your little fantasy, isn’t it? To have the great Captain Harkness in love with you. I hope you don’t mind but Rhys remembered the night you told him about your little affair with Owen, and after when you retcon him. So, Gwen, since he’s cancelling the wedding right now…” He looked at his watch, knowing all the papers would be done by now “what do you think it will happen?” Gwen looked at Jack, eyes full of tears.
“Oh Jack! What can I do now?” Jack hugged her and whispered soothing words to her. Ianto, Owen and Tosh rolled their eyes. Ianto told the two others members that he’s leaving for a walk and to call him if nothing happen. Jack didn’t even acknowledge him.
Ianto was walking, furious. ‘I came back for you’; ‘I want a proper relationship1.’ That was Jack said but it was lies. He always lied, he always cheated, he was a con man, and he’ll always be. Ianto sat on a bench and cried. He really, really wanted that… thing, between them worked but, apparently, it wasn’t mean to be. He really was an idiot. The rain fell on him but he didn’t care. At least, no one would be looking at him.
A warm and bright light surrounded him and a beautiful song was heard. A news paper-kiosk appeared.
“Oh, God! Not a TARDIS!” A young woman came out. She smiled at him.
“Hello! We are in Cardiff the 06 June 2007, right?”
“Yes. Who are you? You certainly are not The Doctor.”
“Thanks God for the small favours!” She said. Ianto smiled. “I’m The Archivist2.” Ianto’s eyes brightened. She explained that she left Gallifrey a long time ago, when they became full of themselves. She had a copy of every book ever wrote. She preferred to teach people for prevent disasters when the Doctor came at the last minute. Tosh called him, asking if she could join him. Gwen was bothering her and she was going to implode. He asked if Owen wanted to join them too. Five minutes later, they were all talking and the Torchwood staff decided to go with her for a little trip.
“It’s not like Jack didn’t do the same thing. And I’m pretty sure this one could bring us back 5 minutes after we left.”
“Of course. I take a good care of my TARDIS. The first planet we need to visit is Diadem, the most relaxing planet in the Galaxy.”
“And for the money?” asked Tosh.
“Don’t worry; I’ve all taken in charge.” Five minutes later, they left.
