Double Drabble: Bad Words

Title: Bad Words
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, Jack, Meriel, Nosy, Owen.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 488: Swear at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Baby Meriel gives Ianto a shock.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: This one’s a double drabble.





Ianto’s eyes widened in horror; no, that wasn’t possible, Meriel was barely seven months old! Leaving the baby under Nosy’s watchful eye, he scurried off to find Jack, grabbing his husband painfully by the arm.


“Ow!” Jack caught the expression on Ianto’s face. “What’s wrong? Is there something up with Meriel?”


“She swore at me!”


“What? That’s not possible! You must be mistaken!” Meriel was already able to say ‘Dada’ and ‘Fuf’, since Nosy was too much of a mouthful, but she had yet to try any other words.


“You didn’t hear her, Jack! She said ‘fuck’! Well, it came out more as ‘fug’, but… How could she learn something like that? We’re always so careful!”


They’d agreed before their daughter was born that if they felt the need to use strong language in her vicinity, they’d substitute other words, like ‘sugar’ or ‘rats’ or Jack’s favourite non-profanity, ‘gerbil’. He claimed it sounded a lot like a Boeshanian swearword. Where Meriel could have picked up anything rude was a mystery, unless…


“Owen!” they said in unison. It just had to be the acerbic medic’s fault.


“Despite everything he promised!” Ianto ranted. “Teaching our baby to swear!”


“Gerbil!” Jack cursed vehemently.

I'm not psychic but I predict Owen will be spending some quality time with Janet in her cell in the very near future.
He's definitely in the boys' bad books!

Thank you!
Oh dear Owens in for it.

great drabble
He's in deep... Sugar ;)

Thank you!
Poor Owen, probABLY NOT HIS FAULT FOR ONCE bABIES DO MAKE RANDOM SOUNDS SOMETIMES THAT SOUND LIKE WORDS, EVEN BAD ONES
Perhaps, but I wouldn't be surprised if Owen HAD used bad words around the baby.

Thank you!
hahahahah Uncle Owen will be on decaf for the rest of his life ...
He's definitely in trouble, that's for sure!

Thank you!

Oh dear. It looks like Owen will be off babysitting duties for a while. That or Ianto will be washing out his mouth with medical grade soap.

Definitely no more babysitting for Owen until he learns not to swear where little ears can hear ;)

Thank you!
