Drabble: Instant Coffee Blues

Title: Instant Coffee Blues

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, mentions Jack

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 310 – Caffeine at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto and Jack’s dinner date doesn’t end well.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

A/N: Title from Guy Clark’s song of the same name.






Ianto was appalled. How could such a swanky restaurant be so backward in one vital respect? If he were a restaurant critic, he decided, he would definitely not recommend eating there.



The food had been excellent, the ambience pleasant and welcoming, the service faultless, the staff polite and the standards of hygiene beyond reproach. Even the prices were reasonable. He and Jack had thoroughly enjoyed their meals.



Then they’d made their one mistake; they’d ordered coffee.



It had been served in elegant cups, along with after dinner mints, but even beautiful presentation couldn’t disguise the fact that it was instant!



The End
