Kathy Swanson frowned worriedly up at Jack. “Please tell me these giant footprints are a hoax.”

Hands in his coat pockets, Jack gave a casual shrug. “I wish I could, but they’re genuine.”

“You mean there’s some kind of monster out there roaming the streets of Cardiff?”

“Not a monster, an Allosaurus, according to Ianto, and you don’t need to worry, we sent it back where it came from.”

“That’s a relief. What about the footprints though?”

“Easy enough to convince people something is fake; we’ll say it was a student prank. By tomorrow even the students will believe it.”

The End
