Characters: Gwen, Rhys.
Written For: Challenge 486: Confidential at tw100.
Spoilers: Day One.
Summary: What was she supposed to say when Rhys asked her about work?
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
“How’s the new job, love?” That was the very first thing Rhys asked when Gwen arrived home from her eventful first day with Torchwood, but what could she tell him? That she’d let loose a sex gas alien that had possessed an innocent young woman and killed over a dozen men?
She couldn’t say that though, could she? Everything about her job was confidential, need to know, and Rhys didn’t need to know. He’d probably be better off not knowing anyway. It was all too bizarre and horrifying.
“Oh, you know, busy. Lots of paperwork,” she lied.
Lies were easy.
