Making his way back up to the main Hub after finishing the latest batch of filing, Ianto headed for the kitchen area; it was time for the team’s mid-morning coffee. He measured and ground the beans, got the machine going, then reached into the wall cupboard, getting down five mugs and setting them out on the countertop.
Then he remembered and his heart sank. Picking up the familiar blue and white striped mug he replaced it reverently in the cupboard, pushing it right to the back of the shelf.
There were only four of them now; would Jack ever return?
