Ianto sneezed again and Jack frowned. The Welshman had been doing that ever since they left the ship.
“I thought you said you didn’t get hay fever?”
“I don’t,” Ianto gasped out, blowing his running nose. “Not on earth anyway, but it seems I’m allergic to something here.” He looked woefully around at the garden planet they’d landed on, shoulders drooping. It was a beautiful place, and he’d so been looking forward to seeing the sights with Jack, but the way things stood he was just making himself miserable, sneezing so much he could scarcely breathe. “It’s no good, Jack, you’ll ‘ave to go on without me. I’ll go back to the ship.”
Jack looked as disappointed as Ianto felt. “But it won’t be the same without you! I wanted to show you the Flower Tower!”
“I know, and I wanted to see it, but I can barely see anything.” His eyes were streaming as much as his nose. “I’ll be fine, just take lots of pictures.”
“Well, if you’re sure…”
“I am.” With a brave attempt at a smile, Ianto turned to sneeze his way back towards the Wanderer. The next stop they made he was buying allergy medicine.
