A/N: Double drabble.

Tosh was beginning to feel like an unnecessary fifth wheel. Bad enough that Gwen, who already had a boyfriend she claimed to love, was now getting a bit on the side from Owen, but when Tosh had come back to the Hub after hours to get her glasses, which she’d accidentally left behind, she’d caught Jack and Ianto making out like teenagers on the sofa.

They hadn’t seen her; she’d used her PDA to temporarily turn off the cog wheel alarms. She knew every inch of the Hub’s security systems since she’d designed most of them. Nevertheless, not wanting to interrupt the two men she’d slipped away again, deciding she could do without her glasses for one night. Ianto was her friend and he deserved to find some happiness after everything he’d been through, but she knew he’d be embarrassed at being discovered in a… compromising position with their boss.

However glad she was for Ianto, she couldn’t help but feel disappointed for herself. Not that she was attracted to Jack, or Ianto, Owen was the one her heart yearned for, though he never noticed her. But now she was the only one who didn’t have anyone, and it hurt.

The End
