Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
This was one of the things Owen hated most about working for Torchwood. There he was in a bar, chatting up a gorgeous girl and getting ready to suggest they go back to her place for the night, when his phone went off. Cursing under his breath, he pulled it from his pocket and answered it. Unsurprisingly it was Jack calling; the bastard had the worst timing in the world.
“It’s the bat signal; I’m needed at work. I’ll call you.” Snatching up his jacket, he left the bar.
Halfway to the Hub, he realised he never got her number.
