Drabble: Famous Last Words

Title: Famous Last Words
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Rhys, Owen.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 535: Instant at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Owen’s a bit too confident in his own abilities.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

“You have driven one of these before, haven’t you?” Rhys asked uncertainly as Owen clambered up into the cab of the lorry Torchwood was renting from Harwood’s.

“Give me a break,” Owen grumbled sourly. “I’m Torchwood; we can drive anything. You’ve seen the tank we get around in.”

“It’s just, driving a lorry’s a bit different from driving a car…” Rhys took a hasty step backwards as Owen slammed the driver’s door.

“Gearlever, clutch, brake, accelerator… Looks the same to me.” Owen put the lorry in gear and backed straight into his own car. “Bloody Hell!”

Rhys smirked. Instant karma.

The End


Maybe it's Owen's brain that needs to shift into gear.:)
LOL! Very likely! He should leave the driving to an expert.

Thank you!
Like Rhys? I forgot what job he had but I could have sworn it had something to do with delivery by car.
Rhys is the manager of Harwoods, the firm Torchwood is renting the van from, and was one of the drivers before being promoted, so yes, he should take the wheel now Owen's proved he can't be trusted with a lorry!

Thank you!
Well thanks for clearing that up.:)

Owen should stick to what he does best.
He really should.
Owen, you shouldn't laugh at the one who knows best!
He'd better leave the driving to Rhys!

Thank you!
