“How about this?” Owen grinned at Tosh as they stood together on the observation deck, staring out at the stars. “Bet you never imagined you’d one day be out here exploring the universe!”
“Never in a million years,” Tosh agreed, leaning against her boyfriend. “I used to daydream about it, Jack always promised someday he’d show me the stars, but… Well, you know what Torchwood’s like. WAS like,” she corrected herself. “I never really expected to live long enough.”
The Rift was closed now and Jack had given his team a choice: to remain on earth and pursue a normal life, bolstered by a very handsome redundancy payment, or to join him and Ianto on the adventure of a lifetime.
Gwen had wavered, torn between wanting to follow Jack and not wanting to leave friends and family behind, but her unplanned pregnancy had made up her mind for her so she’d remained on earth with her husband.
Tosh and Owen, however, had both opted to go with their friends and they didn’t regret their decision for a second; away from all other distractions they’d soon become a couple.
The universe stretched out before them; they planned on seeing it all.
