A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Jack had always been happy to let Ianto do as much of Torchwood’s paperwork as possible. He was so much more efficient than Jack, everything always done on time, with the correct number of copies made and sent where they were supposed to go, or otherwise filed. All Jack had to do was read anything Ianto marked as important enough to require his attention, and sign everything at the bottom. Torchwood had never run more smoothly than it did under the Welshman’s supervision.
“Ianto, have the confidential employee performance evaluations been completed?”
“Yes, sir, all done and signed. I despatched them to Her Majesty by courier this morning.”
“Splendid.” Jack beamed up his lover. “I’m always happy to get those out of the way.”
“Of course, Sir.”
“So, tell me, off the record; what did you put in mine? And in yours?”
“I don’t know, Sir,” Ianto replied innocently.
That made no sense.
“How can you not know?” Jack asked, confused. “You wrote them!”
“Yes, Sir, but they’re confidential, and I’m not authorised to read them. I’d be in trouble if I did.”
“How can you write without reading?”
“I don’t look.”
Jack’s head hit the desk with a thud.
