Characters: Andy Davidson, Jack, Ianto, Team.
Written For: Challenge 488: Swear at tw100.
Summary: Now he’s been given the grand tour, there are only the formalities to deal with before Andy officially becomes a member of Torchwood.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
“Welcome to Torchwood, Andy Davidson.” Jack held out his hand for the other man to shake.
Andy quickly wiped his sweating palm on the leg of his trousers before accepting it. “Thanks for having me. I mean choosing me…” He flushed, suddenly flustered; everything was happening so fast. This morning it had been his day off from work, and now just like that he was switching jobs.
Jack laughed. “I know what you mean, but if you’re offering…” He trailed off with a wink, which just left Andy even more flustered.
“So what next? Do I have to fill in paperwork? Swear an oath of secrecy or something?”
“Paperwork, yes; Ianto will walk you through that, he’s a stickler for it. As for the oath, that’s covered in the paperwork; you’ll be required to sign the official secrets act, since what we do involves matters of national security.”
“I s’pose that makes sense.” Andy nodded. “Protecting Cardiff from aliens and all that.”
“Oh, it’s not just Cardiff. Sometimes what we do is in defence of the whole world.”
“Seriously?” That was a daunting thought. Andy glanced at the handful of people around him. “I think you need a bigger team.”
