“Owen! Help!” Jack yelled, half carrying a hobbling Ianto into the Hub. “I think I’ve broken Ianto!”
“What the fuck did you do to the Teaboy this time?”
“It wasn’t his fault; I keep telling him that but he never listens to me,” Ianto ground out between gritted teeth. Owen got hold of him from the other side and leant a hand getting him down the steps to the medical bay.
“But it was my fault! I’m the one who shot the alien!” Jack wailed.
“It was trying to bite my head off; I would’ve been disappointed in you if you hadn’t.” Ianto let himself be manhandled onto the cold metal surface of the autopsy table, lying back with a pained groan. “You probably saved my life.”
“So if Captain Outrageous here didn’t injure you, what did happen?” Owen started to prod and poke at Ianto’s leg, making him wince.
“We had the alien cornered. I moved in to tranquillise it, but it attacked me. You should’ve seen the size of its mouth! I thought I was done for but then Jack shot it…”
“And I didn’t get out of the way fast enough. Damned thing fell on me.”
