Arriving at the Hub later than usual, Tosh hurried to her workstation and turned her computers on. A few feet away at his own desk, Owen glanced up. “What happened, you oversleep?” he asked, then… “Did you do something to your hair? It looks really nice.”


Tosh had indeed just got her hair cut and styled; it had been getting too long, which could be a nuisance when you worked for Torchwood, and anyway the alien gunk that had got into it the previous evening had set solid, welding the ends on one side into a solid clump that wouldn’t wash out. Her only option had been to cut off the affected section, and she’d decided getting it done professionally was probably a better idea than trying to do it herself. She just hadn’t expected Owen of all people to notice.


“What do you want, Owen?” she sighed.


“Nothing!”


“Really? Usually you only compliment me when you need something.”


“I guess I do.” Owen smiled sheepishly. “There is one little thing you could do for me…”


‘Here it comes,’ thought Tosh. “What’s that?”


“Have dinner with me tonight?”


He sounded serious.


“That would be lovely.”


Owen grinned. “It’s a date.”



The End














Comments

I suspect a foolproof solution is impossible because most politicians are fools anyway.

They should be kicked out of office if they don't keep their promises though, and relieved of duty and heavily fined if they lie about anything important.

Chocolate is one of mankind's greatest inventions!
The whole situation is hopeless unless people with our views were calling the shots.*sighs*

Only spies, are allowed to lie.*rhymes sort of*

I hate when chocolate doesn't taste like the real deal. Like substituting cocoa with sugar. That's why I prefer making my own. Unless its decent dark chocolate.
Sadly that's unlikely to happen - politicians cling to power relentlessly.

For me, it's Cadbury's all the way; they're the best for milk chocolate, and their Bournville dark chocolate is sheer heaven! I was given a Galaxy Easter egg this year and it just tasted Meh =(
It's really a big letdown to society.:(

Yeah, Cadbury is your usual safe bet for a reasonable price. Sometimes I will try the European ones but Milka and Gyllian have not tasted like they originally did in years.

I use to love them. So disappointed. I don't know why quality has gone down. Is it an economy thing? I got no idea!*shrugs*
Really is =C

Probably. Manufacturers change recipes to use cheaper ingredients... It's sad =(
What does =C mean?*ignorant*

Well that's how they lose my business.:(

It's a shame but what can you do?*shrugs*
So true, I distrust anything labelled 'new, improved recipe'.

=( is sad

=C is even sadder (I've only just started using it for things where =( doesn't seem to adequately express my level of sadness)

Me too. I'm usually skeptical when they label products like that. It would be wiser just to test it first.

Like a trial period. Sometimes they do that but usually it's all about making money and not caring if consumers will still be satisfied.*assuming*

I believe people would spend a little more if the quality was there.:(

I also find the whole concept of local products being more expensive than those from overseas unacceptable. I'm not sure why that's the case.*goes to research*
It really does seen idiotic that imports are cheaper than home-made or grown.

So many times, something has been improved so much I can no longer eat it =(
I believe every worker should be paid fairly and equally. I don't understand why this isn't the case. It sounds like corruption to me.

I understand the disappointment you must feel. I've been there too.:(

Yes, but employers always seem to find loopholes that allow them to pay there workers less, and business always buy products as cheaply as they can. =(
I hate corruption. Like anyone else who believes in morals. There needs to be some serious monitoring of shady stuff like ripping off workers.

I know it can also happen the other way around where people steal from work. I don't get how someone thinks that way either!

I don't think profting off someone elses good intentions is really benefiting in the long run. Karma is bound to catch up with them. That's usually how it stops.
The trouble is that greed is rife everywhere you look. Everyone wants something for nothing, they just don't think of how they're doing other people out of the basic necessities. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer. You're right, there should be better monitoring to prevent people getting ripped off. =(
If they was no such thing as greed, it could happen. Humans are selfish to a certain degree. It's a fact. Being one hundred percent selfless is rare.

I'm trying to give more to charity than I did before. I need to work again so I can support others more than myself.

I give what I can when I can, because there are always people worse off. I do what I can to help. The richest people are the greediest though. Those with the least give the most to help others.
