Drabble: Watching The Clock

Title: Watching The Clock

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, mentions the team

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 288, Week 4 – Reverse fandom – Last of the Summer Wine at tw100

Spoilers: They Keep Killing Suzie

Summary: Jack waits as ten minutes to pass agonisingly slowly

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

A/N: Episode title = drabble title. It’s just easier that way.

Jack glanced at the clock. He’d been checking the time every few seconds since he’d left Ianto finishing up with Suzie in the morgue. Ten minutes had never seemed more like an eternity.

As soon as he’d reached the main Hub, he’d ordered everyone home. The events of the day had been so unsettling that even Tosh didn’t argue, gathering her things with one hand while turning off her computers with the other as if she couldn’t wait to escape.

Owen followed Gwen out, muttering that he needed a drink.

Jack checked the clock again. Still three minutes to go…

The End


Ha! A intriguing proposal to top off the end of a surreal day--must have it was the longest ten minutes of Jack's life. I'm sure Ianto will make it worth the wait, though. :)

Nicely done!
I'm sure he did. But poor Jack, thosde last three minutes seemed even longer than the previous seven with nothing left to do but watch the second hand ticking its way around the clock. I'm sure ianto didn't present himself until the very last second!

Thank you!
I'd certainly watch the clock if I had Ianto to look forward too! ;)
I used to when I had Torchwood with Ianto to look forward to. Jack is luckier - he's waiting for the real thing and I'm sure his waiting will be well worth it.

Thank you.
Yes, good reason to watch the clock. Yumminess to look forward to.
Yes, but a watched clock ticks along sooooooo slowly! Jack just wants to get to the yumminess!

Thank you!
longest three minutes of Jacks life i'll bet LOL.

great drabble.
Felt like eternity - but it sure was worth the wait!

Thank you!
I am sure those ten minutes felt like a lifetime but good things happen to those who wait!!!!
I'm sure you're right, but Jack thinks Ianto was worth the wait, a very good time was had by both of them!

Thank you!
Bet that was a long ten minutes!
But sooo worth the wait!
I'm sure you're right on both counts! Jack will live for eterninty, but after that 10 minutes he felt like he already had!

Thank you.
It's great :)
Thank you. I don't write all that many canon-compliant drabbles, but just occasionally there's a prompt that fits canon and I just have to use it that way.
