“What’re you doing, Tosh?” Owen asked, scooting his chair over to her workstation.

“Working on a programme,” the computer genius replied distractedly, not taking her eyes off her monitor as she checked lines of code.

“What kind of programme?”

“For converting badly handwritten reports into a legible typeface.” She glanced away from her screen. “Why do you want to know?”

“No reason; I was just making conversation.”


“Because I’m bored, I’ve finished my paperwork, done the last two autopsies, collated and typed up the test results on all the specimens I took, and now I don’t have anything to do.”

Tosh was about to point out that while he might not have anything to do, she definitely did, but then changed her mind. She cared about Owen and it wasn’t fair to just brush him off on the rare occasion he made an effort to be sociable. Besides, her programme would wait.

“I could do with a bit of fresh air; my brain’s starting to feel like it’s full of cotton wool and my eyes ache from staring at the screen. We could go for a walk, maybe get some ice cream?”

Owen grinned at her. “I’d like that.”

The End



This probably happened.:)
I like to think so. Owen wasn't always a horrible person, he could be nice sometimes.

Too bad we only saw snippets of him being vulnerable or genuine.

As Tosh would be more assertive once and a while.:)
Yeah, they were two more characters poorly served by RTDs desire to turn Torchwood into the Gwen Show =(
NAWW I really like these two together.

Great drabble
Me too =)

Thank you!

Perhaps Tosh would have less work to do if Owen's reports were more legible! Bless her for being too kind to point that fact out!

Tosh is far too nice for that.

Thank you!
