Jack unpacked the shopping as Ianto put everything away. “Is that it?” Ianto asked, stowing a bag of potatoes in the vegetable rack.


“All except this.” Jack unveiled the last item with a flourish.


Ianto frowned at it. “What in the world is that?”


“You said you wanted to get a plant for the kitchen windowsill, so I got you one as a surprise!” Jack held out the scraggly little thing drooping in its pot.


“I had in mind something… bushier and… green.”


“Hey! This plant can be bushy and green. It just needs a bit of TLC, that’s all.” Jack stroked a drooping leaf tenderly. “All the bigger, bushier plants were getting snapped up, but this one kept being ignored.”


“I can’t imagine why,” Ianto muttered, tone dry as dust.


“I couldn’t just leave it there, unloved and unwanted.”


“So you bought it because you felt sorry for it?”


“Nobody else was going to, and I got it for half price.”


“Half price? That’s daylight robbery.”


“You say that now, but just wait and see.”


After two weeks of patient care, Jack’s plant was flourishing, green and bushy. “Now tell me I didn’t get a bargain!” he smirked smugly.



The End

Well Jack was right ..

great drabble
He was determined to give the plant a chance.

Thank you!

Jack just can't resist adopting things that need a lot of love, watching them flourish under his care. It's a gift.

He must have a green thumb.

Thank you!
