Double Drabble: Important

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: Double drabble.





Jack paused at the door to the lower levels. It was closed, which was unusual since most of the team, himself included, saw doors as unnecessary obstacles and left them open for their convenience unless there was a very good reason to shut them, but that wasn’t what had caught his attention. Stuck to the solid metal of the door with strips of masking tape was a large sheet of thick, white paper, on which was written in black marker pen,


‘ATTENTION! VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE – READ AND OBEY.’


The rest of the sheet was blank.


Jack was still staring at it with a confused look on his face when Ianto appeared.


“Jack? What are you doing?”


Jack pointed helplessly at the paper. “I don’t understand! What am I supposed to read and obey?”


Ianto laughed. “It’s not finished yet; the marker pen ran out of ink so I had to go and fetch a new one.”


“Thank goodness for that. I was almost afraid to move in case I did the wrong thing.”


Uncapping his pen, Ianto finished the notice with: ‘FOR FLUFF SAFETY, PLEASE CLOSE THIS DOOR BEHIND YOU.’


“I don’t want Nosy getting lost down there,” he explained.



The End

Ugh, you can really do without tooth woes. Hope the problem can be rectified without too much having to be done.

I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning so I plan to post the new tw100 prompt this evening.

I used to make earrings, the dangly kind, and have more than 200 pairs I was going to sell at craft fairs, but the one time I went to one, I sold maybe three pairs. Also made bouncy spiders and knitted mice, but I've ended up giving those away at Halloween.

Your book choices sound interestingly varied, although I've never heard of either. Then again I mainly read SF, which probably isn't the best choice for a book club with a varied group of people.

Sounds like you've found a good place to do your catch-ups. A Devonshire tea sounds glorious. I had some lovely holidays in Devon when I was in my teens and could still go places. I remember the scones with real clotted cream with great fondness.
I know what you mean. I have stacks and stacks of earrings which is ironic since I've never had pierced ears, but they're easy to make and look pretty.
I'm trying to stick to general fiction for book club which means trawling bookclub websites for reccs and I'm also signed up to an online book store that send weekly newsletters. When I see something of interest I take a photo of that cover and the synopsis on my phone and check them out later. For my own interests I still lean towards crime/fantasy/thriller genres and am rekindling my love of a good supernatural thriller and snaffling up second hand copies of James Herbert books. I always laugh at the reference to The Fog in Torchwood. It's so dated it's more amusing than a good read these days. :)
I have two piercings in each ear, but almost always just where my studs, lol!

General fiction is definitely best for a book club.

I have quite a few James Herbert books. It always amused me in my copy of Moon that towards the end as things got more exciting, moon kept gaining more 'o's. I guess the typesetter got a bit carried away!
