Title: First Impressions
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Owen, Jack, Tosh, Suzie.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 602: Recruit at tw100.

Summary: Owen’s not overly impressed with his new workplace and colleagues.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: Double drabble.

Accosted in a cemetery and recruited into some kind of secret alien hunting organisation… This so wasn’t the way Owen’s life was supposed to go. He and Katie should have been making the final preparations for their wedding. He should have been busy with his surgical residency while Katie decided whether or not she was going into paediatrics full-time. She’d enjoyed her stint, but there were so many options available. Or there had been, before her life had been cruelly snatched away.

Owen looked around the vast underground cavern that was his new workplace; it was all rough concrete and metal gratings, so different from the sterile hospital environment he was used to.

Harkness didn’t give him much time to stare.

“Owen Harper, meet your new colleagues; weapons expert Suzie Costello, and our resident computer genius Toshiko Sato. Tosh will get you set up with passwords and access to the mainframe.”

Seriously, that was it? Two girls and Harkness himself? Some ‘organisation’ that was!

“So you recruited me to balance out the male/female ratio?”

Everyone turned to look at him, unimpressed by his comment.

“No, Owen, I recruited you because the team needs a medic and you fit the bill.”

The End
