“Give me a hand putting all this away?” Ianto asked, lugging several heavy bags into the kitchen.

Jack jumped up from where he’d been sitting at the kitchen table, reading the paper. “You’ve been gone for ages! I was about to send out a search party.” He took one of the bags from his lover. “Didn’t you say you were just popping out for milk?”

Ianto offered up a wry smile. “I was, but the local shop was closed so I had to go to the supermarket. Didn’t see any point in going all that way and just getting milk when I’d only have to go back for other stuff in a few days, so…”

“Sensible, I suppose,” Jack agreed, setting the bag down on the kitchen counter and starting to empty it. Bread, eggs, cheese, yoghurts, teabags, veg, fresh fruit… He put things away as he emptied the bag while Ianto stowed the contents of another bag in the freezer, but then he pulled out a glass jar and paused. “Instant? You brought a jar of instant?” He looked as shocked as he sounded.

Ianto snorted. “Yes, Jack, I bought instant custard powder.”

Jack read the label again. “Oh.”

The End
