A/N: Double drabble.
Meriel loved Nosy at least as much as she loved her daddies, and probably a bit more. It was her very most special friend in all the world, and her earliest memories were of its comforting humming when she was very little and couldn’t sleep.
Nosy was always there for her, happy to play games, so she never felt lonely like some of her friends without brothers or sisters did. She always had her loyal playmate, even when her daddies were too busy to play with her.
It made her a bit sad though that she couldn’t introduce her special friend to her other friends. Whenever she had a play date at home, Nosy had to go to work with one of her daddies, or hide in their bedroom where her friends weren’t allowed to go. That must be so boring for it, especially since it loved to play.
“Why does Nosy have to be a secret, Taddy?”
Ianto lifted Meriel onto his lap. “Because Nosy is an alien. There are nasty people about, sweetheart, and if any of them heard about Nosy, they might take it away and do bad things to it.”
Meriel understood. Nosy needed their protection.
