Written For: Challenge 564: Slip at tw100.
Summary: Cardiff has a bit of a slippery problem.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
It was the height of summer, temperatures were in the mid-eighties; the last thing anyone could have anticipated encountering was ice. Nevertheless, on Roald Dahl Plas, pedestrians were sliding and skidding around as though they were first-time skaters at the local rink.
Something appeared to have rendered the paved surface almost frictionless.
“We’d better find whatever’s causing this and stop it before someone gets seriously hurt,” Jack said, striding towards the cog door, the rest of the team following, scanners at the ready.
Ianto brought up the rear, carrying a toboggan. Might as well use the slipperiness to his advantage.
