A/N: Double drabble.

There was something about Jack’s behaviour recently that was starting warning bells ringing in Ianto’s head. He seemed fine, he was eating normally, and so far he was his usual, cheerful, energetic self, but when he was home he kept tidying up, which was very unlike him. Not a lot, just straightening cushions, putting things away, reorganising the kitchen, because a lot of things weren’t in their proper places.

When cooking for a family, a lot of stuff tended to get misplaced. Usually, Jack never minded having to search for the whisk, or the cake forks, or the ice-cream scoop, but now, suddenly, not being able to find them immediately was apparently beyond annoying.

Waking up at three in the morning to find the bed beside him empty, and Jack on hands and knees scrubbing the kitchen floor to within an inch if its life, was the final straw.

“Jack, what are you doing?”

“The floor’s dirty.”

“And cleaning it can’t wait until morning?”

“The kids will be in the way then.”

“This is classic nesting behaviour. Are you pregnant again?”

“What? No, of course not!” Jack frowned.  “I’m not having cravings. Um, maybe I’d better do a test tomorrow…”

The End
