“What time d’you think it is?” Ianto asked as he and Jack trudged wearily back to the SUV after a long battle with the nasty, toothy creature they were carrying between them in a reinforced cage.

“Late.” Jack looked over at the horizon where the sun was just beginning to rise. “Or possibly early. Amounts to the same thing at this time of year.”

It was late June, the longest day only just past, and while Ianto welcomed the extra daylight, it did mean the nights tended to pass in the blink of an eye.

“True. I’ll be glad to get whatever this is safely locked away in the cells. Think we might get an hour or two of sleep before we have to get up again?”

“I’ll make sure of it; you need your rest.”

In the cage, their captive was scrabbling about, getting increasingly agitated, and as the sun rose fully, the creature suddenly let out a screech and burst into flames. In less than a minute, all that remained was a greasy smear on the floor of the cage.

Ianto blinked at it. “Oh.”

Jack stared too. “Huh. That solves one problem.”

“Mm. Late but not lamented.”

The End


At least Ianto can get to bed without having to spend time settling the creature. They couldn't have known it was allergic to sunlight. Jack will make sure he has a bit of coddling and a good sleep.
Yep, he's not sad about not having to look after the creature either.

Jack will make sure Ianto gets a good sleep.

Thank you!
Ewww... Well at least Ianto doesn't have to worry about trying to incarcerate the nasty alien. Though I'm certain that Jack and Ianto will make certain that there is a prominent notation or two in the Torchwood database about this alien species fatal sunlight allergy.... Thanks for this.
LOL! Sorry, but I didn't kn ow it was going to spontaneously combust until I wrote it. My brain is weird like that. Ianto didn't want to look after the toothy beast, he just wanted to get some sleep ;)

Thank you!
