“Where have you been?” Ianto snapped as Jack entered the Hub, laden with heavy bags. “Don’t you know you’ve got a videoconference with General Stanley in…” he checked his watch, “seven minutes?”
“Don’t fuss, I’m in plenty of time. Give me a hand with these? I have to get the rest from the car.”
“The rest of what?” Ianto helped Jack unburden himself, piling the bags on the floor beside the desk.
“I was passing the office supply store on my way back from the dry cleaner’s and I saw there was a sale on. I couldn’t resist!”
Ianto’s heart sank. He was almost afraid to ask, but… “What did you buy?”
“All kinds of useful stuff! Printer paper, envelopes, staples, pushpins, electric pencil sharpener… Look at this!” He pulled out a packet and shoved it at Ianto, who took it automatically then stared at it, eyebrows going up so far they almost disappeared into his hair.
“Jack, what do we want with five thousand rubber bands?”
“I’m sure they’ll be good for something; everyone needs plenty of rubber bands. I stocked up on post-it notes too.”
Ianto groaned, wondering where he was going to put all of Jack’s bargains.
