Drabble: It's Escaped!

Title: It’s Escaped!

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Owen

Rating: PG

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

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: One of Owen’s specimens has gone missing.

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

A/N: Title used was Has Anyone Seen a Peruvian Wart?

Owen stared in horror. The lid had somehow come off the specimen jar and, predictably, its erstwhile contents were nowhere in sight.

“Crap! That’s all I need! I’ll be looking for the little bugger for the rest of the day,” he groaned.

A thorough search of the autopsy bay proved fruitless. Honestly, how could something that small move so fast?

Owen sighed heavily. He would have to extend his search, and that meant telling the others. Not an appealing thought. There was no choice though; they couldn’t let it escape.

“Guys? We have a problem. I’ve lost the Peruvian Wart.”

TBC in 'If You're Not Careful...'


oh poor Owen! and now starts search time!
Yep! And the whole team will have to search to make sure the little menace doesn't get out of the Hub. They are definitely NOT pleased with Owen.

Thank you!
Uh-oh! That's not good. I don't know what that is, but I'm pretty sure I don't want it underfoot. What if it's contagious?!?
I know! It sounds unpleasant, possibly parasitic, and now it's on the loose! What if someone sits on it? What if it escapes and infects the whole of Cardiff? Or the world!

Owen is in big trouble.

Thank you!
Yikes, that sounds nasty!
Doesn't it? I wouldn't want one sneaking up on me, i hope they find it soon!

Thank you!
Not good.
Not good at all! Don't worry though, they'll deal with the problem!

Thank you!
Oh dear why do i think the trouble has only just begun LOL
Because it has?

Thank you!

Peruvian Warts are not to be underestimated, they're tricky buggers.
Have just read all three drabbles.

Awesome trio :)
Thank you!

After writing the first one, I realised I couldn't leave things like that, lol!
Brilliant use of the prompt! :-)
Well, Peruvian Wart - it just HAD to be an alien of some sort.

There are two sequels to this, as I'm sure you've noticed, can't leave stray Warts wandering around!

Thank you.
Not made it to the sequels yet... still have five pages of friends stuff to catch up on!
Well, that'll keep you entertained this evening! Enjoy!
they have no closure system secure??
Owen is careless ...
Owen was definitely a bit careless, he didn't think it could get out of the jar. He must not have put the lid on tightly enough and warts are sneaky. The Hub can be put into lockdown to prevent it getting away, but it's very small and the Hub is a very big place.

Thank you
Oh lol! Good Poor Owen always poor Owen getting to accidently lose something or set off alien tech...

*Hugs poor Owen* Don't worry Owen it'll be okay.

Well written :)Thank you
Watch out, there's a wart about!

Owen is such fun to mess with. It will be okay in the end though.
