Last one for the challenge!
Their first date hadn’t exactly gone to plan.
Jack had booked a table at a lovely restaurant, then they’d been late because he’d gone the wrong way down a one-way street and been stopped by the police.
Then Jack knocked the candle over and set fire to their table, making things worse when he tried to put it out with the brandy he’d grabbed from a passing waiter.
As they walked back to the car, Jack mumbled, “I wanted it to be romantic.”
Ianto stared at him, then burst out laughing.
“Romantic? No. Unforgettable? Definitely. It’s the thought that counts!”
