“Ow!” Tosh jerked her hands away from her keyboard, rubbing her fingers.
“Are you alright?”
She glanced up at Jack’s new hire, Ianto. “Yes, I’m fine, a static electric shock, that’s all. Mainframe’s just cranky. She acts up sometimes.”
“Didn’t Jack tell you? The Hub’s computers are semi-organic technology, Mainframe is alive, in a sense and when something irritates her, I get electric shocks until I fix the problem. It’s sort of her way of asking for help.”
“Amazing. Well, I suppose I’d better get back to sorting the archives.”
Tosh watched him hurry away. Such a strange man.
