Drabble: Foot In Mouth

Title: Foot In Mouth

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Gwen, Rhys

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 312 – Awkward Moments at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Gwen’s upset and Rhys is tactless. He realises too late that sometimes it’s better not to say anything!

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

A/N: I’d done Tosh, Owen, Jack and Ianto (several times), so I thought I should get a complete set, lol!

Storming into the flat, slamming the door behind her, Gwen slumped onto the sofa, coat still on and hood up.

“Not taking your coat off, Gwennie?” Rhys asked cautiously.

“No!” Gwen snapped.

“Um, why not?”

“There was an accident at work.”

“Are you hurt?”


“Then why…?”

Gwen whipped her coat off. She was bright orange.

“Nobody knows how long I’ll be like this! I look like a pumpkin!”

Rhys scratched his head.

“Good thing it’s nearly Halloween.”

A deathly hush fell as he realised he’d said the worst thing possible. Maybe one day he’d learn to think before speaking.

The End

*giggles* no, make that 'laugh out loud'
*grins* I feel for poor Rhys, sometimes Gwen has no sense of humour, lol!

Thank you!
Heh heh. I was expecting something worse said than this.
Yeah, but Rhys isn't intentionally mean. Gwen just has no sense of humour, lol!

Thank you!
I can see things flying at Rhys's head LOL

Great drabble.
Yeah, Rhys better duck - or hide! Gwen is NOT in a good mood. He should just escape, go for a drink. I doubt she'd follow, especially if he makes sure to take her coat with him, lol!

Thank you!
Poor Rhys, he didn't been any harm, lol!

Thank you!
hahahahaha Poor Rhys, having to tolerate her like that and bitching about it!
Yeah, she has NO sense of humour when she's the one affected.

Thank you!
Haha! Poor Rhys! But poor Gwen too! xD
I feel sorrier for Rhys than for Gwen, taking her bad mood out on her poor, sweet, well-meaning boyfriend/husband (not sure when this is set). Gwen should be more careful, Torchwood has a lot of hazards for the unwary.

Thank you!
Oh Rhys, that was not a smart thing to say. I think I'd be mad too.
It was one of those times the thought popped into his head. He didn't mean to say it out loud, it just slipped out, lol! He meant well.

Thank you!
Something tells me Rhys will be sleeping on the couch...
Oh yeah, poor guy. Or lucky guy. I mean, who'd want to sleep next to a bright orange Gwen?

Thank you!

Yeah, Rhys didn't mean to actually SAY that, it just slipped out. Oddly enough, it did nothing to improve Gwen's mood. Can't imagine why, lol!

Thank you!
Uh oh Rhys - get ready to duck! LOL
Oh yeah, hurricane Gwen incoming! He'd better beat a hasty retreat!

Thank you!
Oops! Sorry about that, hope the keyboard is okay!

I've put a warning on the one I've just posted ;)

Glad you liked it!

Thank you!
You remind me why so many of us loved Rhys and thought he deserved better; he should head for the pub while Gwen is too orange to chase him down.
I agree! If he taskes her coat with him there's no chance she'll follow, lol!

Rhys is lovely, just not always the most tactful person. That's true of a lot of men though =)
Hope Rhys enjoys sleeping on the sofa for a night or two.
It might be preferable to sleeping next to orange Gwen, lol!

Thank you!
*gulp* Hope Gwen isn't armed! ;)
No, she was ordered to leave her weapon at the Hub. Jack knows Rhys can be a bit tactless, he wasn't taking chances, lol!

Rhys fled the flat, taking Gwen's coat with him so she couldn't follow. He'll go home when he's sure she's calmed down. Hopefully she won't stay orange for long, it's rather disturbing ;)

Thank you!
Yeah, her orangeness will be out of the way until she resumes her natural colouring. I think Rhys should avoid her too, just in case it might rub off on him, lol!

Thank you!
