Owen gave a shriek and just about jumped out of his skin. “Jesus Christ! D’you have to lurk like that and jump out at people?”

There was something deeply unsettling about the new hire, like he was incapable of clomping about on the concrete like the rest of them, and Owen darted a quick glance at the Welshman’s feet, just to make sure they were actually touching the ground. Nobody should be able to walk so silently!

“I didn’t jump out at you and I don’t lurk,” Ianto said mildly.

“Well whatever you were doing, stop it,” Owen muttered.

“If you hadn’t been dozing at your desk…”

“I wasn’t dozing, I was thinking.”

“Of course you were,” Ianto said politely, without a flicker of expression.

Owen glared at the younger man, sure he was being mocked. “What d’you want anyway?”

“To know if you’ll be wanting coffee. I’m about to make some.”

“Then go do it, and stop bothering me. I’m busy. You can bring me a cup when it’s ready. Two…”

“Two sugars and no milk,” Ianto interrupted smoothly. “I know.” Without another word he glided silently away.

“He’s like a bloody robot,” Owen muttered.

Unseen, Ianto winced.

The End


Ouch of course he isn't,he's just very very good at everything
And he's trying not to draw too much attention to himself because of Lisa.

Thank you!
Mmmm what a difficult situation to handle with a snarky Owen, especially when you have too much to hide and to lose!
Yes, Ianto really has to tread carefully!

Thank you!

Owen can always be relied on to be such a people person!

It's part of his charm ;)

Thank you!
