Drabble: A Mystifying Phone Call

Title: A Mystifying Phone Call

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 288, Week 2 – Reverse fandom – Last of the Summer Wine at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto can’t help listening in on Jack’s phone call.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

A/N: Title used is The Heavily Reinforced Bottom.

Ianto hadn’t meant to eavesdrop on Jack’s phone call; it was unavoidable.

“That’s right.” A pause. “No, just the bottom. Extra reinforcement, heavy-duty if possible. It needs to hold up under rigorous use.” Another pause while Jack listened.

“What’s the largest size?” A brief silence, then, “Seriously? I think that might be a bit too big. What’s the next size down?”

Ianto was completely baffled by now.

“Sounds perfect. Can you have it ready by Friday? Splendid. See you then.”

As Jack hung up, Ianto asked, “What was that about?”

Jack smirked.

“Can’t tell you, it would spoil the surprise.”

The End


You aren't going to leave us like that, are you?

I have to know.

The suspense is killing me!!
Me too! If you have any suggestions on what Jack might be talking about, I'm all ears - he's refusing to tell me!

Thank you!
I'm intrigued... what is it?
I'd love to know that myself!

Any ideas? Jack won't tell me >=/

Should Ianto be worried? LOL
I don't know! He probably will worry though, especially because Jack's refusing to tell him.

(He won't tell ME either! I'm a little worried too..._
OOOh wonder what Jack has ordered. great drabble
I'll let you know if I ever find out, lol!

Thank you!
OMG! If I were Ianto, I'd run away from the Captain, just in case!!!!!
Ianto is seriously considering it, but at the same time he's very curious, he really wants to know what this 'surprise' is.

Thank you!
I like Ianto am very curious mixed with equal parts of terror, lol.
I'll admit to being curious myself - Jack is determined to keep the surprise a secret. All suggestions are welcome!

Thank you!
It's a possibility, I'm still wondering about it. A bed would certainly get a lot of vigorous use, knowing those two!
Oh my! What on earth could it be? (Of course knowing Jack it might not be from Earth at all!) Is it Friday yet? ;)
I have no idea what it is, Jack wouldn't tell me! I think that was unfair of him =(

(I cheated a bit on this because I really wanted to use the prompt but didn't have a clue what might need a heavily reinforced bottom. I guess it's up to readers to decide what Jack was talking about, lol!)
