Double Drabble: Clever Answer

Title: Clever Answer
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, Suzie, Jack, Owen, Tosh.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 505: Trick at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada. Set pre-Season One.
Summary: Ianto can do something no one else has ever been able to – get coffee out of the coffee machine.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: Double drabble.

On Ianto’s very first day at Torchwood Three, he produced something akin to the nectar of the gods from the previously unused coffee machine that sat in the area of the Hub designated ‘the kitchen’.

“Ohhhhhh!” sighed Suzie after taking her first sip, sliding slowly downwards in her seat like she was melting from sheer ecstasy. “This is heavenly! I swear I’ve never tasted better coffee in my life!”

“Told you so,” Jack smirked, a smug tone in his voice as he sipped from his blue and white striped mug with an almost pornographic moan.

“Bloody hell!” Owen exclaimed. “How’d you do that? All I got when I tried to work it was lukewarm brown sludge. Even Tosh can’t get anything drinkable out of that monstrosity; her attempt was more like glue, and she can figure out practically any kind of tech, alien or human!”

Tosh ducked her head, blushing at Owen’s probably unintentional compliment.

“Is there some kind of trick to it?” Owen continued, paying no attention to the resident tech expert.

“Yes,” Ianto replied. “It’s called ‘reading the instruction manual’.”

“It has an instruction manual?” The others exchanged surprised looks.

Ianto nodded. “The machine was standing on it.”

The End


Oh clever Ianto. He always knows exactly what to do
He's a smart boy! He moved the machine while cleaning and found the instructions ;)

Thank you!
LOL great drabble
Just goes to show nobody ever moved the coffee machine!

Thank you!

Of course it was! Torchwood are so unaccustomed to things arriving with instructions that they've forgotten to check them!

And nobody ever moved it to clean underneath..

Thank you!
