A/N: Double Drabble.
Taking stock at the start of a new year, Ianto reluctantly admitted that he had more than his fair share of regrets. He regretted insisting they should go to work on the day of the Battle when Lisa had suggested they call in sick because they’d drunk a bit too much the night before and were a bit hungover.
He regretted battling for months to keep Lisa alive, giving the cyber implants a chance to take complete control of her. He should have ended her suffering back at Torchwood Tower; at least then she could have died as herself.
He regretted lying to Jack to get a job with Torchwood Three, and then bringing a dangerous entity into their secure base. Jack had every reason to be angry; Ianto had betrayed his trust.
He regretted bringing Doctor Tanizaki to the Hub. If he hadn’t, Lisa wouldn’t have got loose and killed not only Tanizaki, but poor Annie too.
He regretted not having the guts to clean up his own mess by ending ‘Lisa’ when Jack had ordered him too. He’d taken the coward’s way out.
The only thing he didn’t regret in the whole sorry mess was falling for Jack.
