Summary: There’s something hunting in the Hub, look out!

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



The creature slunk silently through the Hub, following the scent of its prey. It moved stealthily, keeping to cover wherever possible, freezing in place whenever someone came into view. It must not be spotted, the success of the hunt depended on the people around it remaining unaware of its presence.


Closer and closer, its prey was in view. It watched from its hiding place, waiting for the perfect moment to strike, coiled in readiness. Now!


One quick lunge and….


SLURP!


“Oi! Get your snout out of my coffee!”


“I warned you, Gwen. Never leave coffee where Nosy can get it.”


The End
