A/N: Double drabble.
Ianto arrived to meet Jack at UNIT’s new base, situated a few miles outside Aberystwyth, just in time to see an officious looking UNIT general stalk away from Torchwood’s leader, heading in the direction of the officer’s mess.
He rolled his eyes as he parked his car and got out, waiting for Jack to join him. In the spirit of inter-agency cooperation, they’d been invited to tour the base which, after months of construction, was finally operational. The rest of the troops to be stationed there would be arriving over the next few days so there was only a skeleton staff at present, overseeing the final preparations under the command of the general who’d been talking to Jack.
“Don’t tell me you’ve already managed to offend General Pearson. You’ve been here less than an hour!” Jack had gone ahead while Ianto dropped Meriel off at Rhiannon’s for the day.
“I’ve been on my best behaviour!” Jack said indignantly. “General Pearson always looks like that; he’s permanently offended by everything, and I don’t think he’s too pleased at being sent to run a base in
the back of beyond. His words, not mine.”
Ianto grimaced. “I’ll try not to take offence.”
