“I’m home!” Ianto called as he entered the flat, feeling a bit disappointed when his arrival wasn’t immediately met by his daughter running to welcome him home. The French doors were open though, so presumably she was playing out in the roof garden and hadn’t heard him.

Shrugging out of his coat and hanging it in the closet, he loosened his tie and went to see where everyone was.

The sight that met his eyes filled him with horror.

“Oh my God!” he gasped. “Get down from there this instant, before you fall and break your neck! That’s not a climbing frame!”

“Don’t fuss, Ianto, it’s fine,” Jack replied brightly from where he clung precariously at the top of the fifteen foot high rose trellis. “We were flying Meriel’s kite but it went the wrong way and got stuck up here. I’ve nearly got it.”

“There’s an easier, not to mention much safer, way of getting up there. You’re a terrible influence,” Ianto snapped. “What if Meriel decides to copy you and gets hurt?” He turned to his daughter. “Don’t ever try climbing that. It’s not safe.”

Meriel nodded. “I promise.”

“Good girl.”

As for Jack… He’d be drinking decaf.

The End


Ianto is such a strict taddy! Hopefully, Meriel will follow his advice!
I'm sure she will. She doesn't want to make her Taddy so scared and worried!

Thank you.
What a terrible punishment, but Ianto gota a real fright. Jack has no concept of risk, but has to learn to think of the child who might copy him
Yes, Jack needs to be a responsible adult now, at least around his daughter.

Thank you!
