William and his friends stared around themselves in wonder and amazement, still scarcely able to believe they were here, inside Torchwood’s secret base of operations.
“Wow!” William figured if he sounded a bit breathless that was only to be expected. The place was huge, a whole complex beneath the Plas that most of Cardiff didn’t even know existed.
“Pretty impressive, isn’t it?” Captain Harkness was grinning at them. “Didn’t used to look like this; before it got blown up and left a massive crater in the Plas, it was all bare concrete and metal catwalks; had a lot of character but it wasn’t exactly cheery. Ianto likes this better, which he should. He helped with the redesign.”
There was a slithering sound against the hardwearing tiled floor and Nosy appeared, humming an enthusiastic greeting. Crouching down, William greeted the alien, hugging it and ruffling the thick green fur.
“I wish we were already working here,” he admitted. “But I guess we should at least finish school first.” That would be almost another two years for most of them, and even longer for Jon, what with him being the youngest.
“The time will pass quicker than you think.”
“I hope so.”
