A/N: For mahmfic’s prompt ‘birds’
A/N2: HAPPY BIRTHDAY To mahmfic & garnettrees! Hope you don't mind sharing a drabble!

Ianto lay flat on his back in the grass, listening to birdsong.

A skylark, so high above him it was almost invisible, trilled its sweet song while swifts swooped low across the meadow, shrilling their call and snatching up the insects buzzing around him.

In a copse a short distance away, he could hear crows and magpies squabbling, a dove cooing. Nearer to hand, in the hedgerow a few metres away, the ticking of a robin sounded surprisingly loud.

All was silent, except for the birds.

The aliens were long gone.

He hoped Jack would come and untie him soon.

TBC in 'A Bit Tied Up?'


Oh dear, at least Ianto got to listen to the birdsong. LOL!
He's looking on the bright side! At least he gets to relax in a nice setting, listen to the birds and think happy thoughts while he waits to be untied.

Thank you!
I was getting a beautiful image of Ianto lying in the grass then the last line made me laugh.
And my work here is done ;)

I love lulling people into thinking one thing, then pulling the rug out, lol!

Thank you!
I'm assuming it was the aliens who tied him up and not Jack during one of their games. It's not out of the realm of possibility with these two. If it was aliens, then Jack will probably be worried about him first, then relieved he's okay, then take full advantage of the gift he's been handed.
The aliens were definitely responsible, lol!

I'm considering a sequel, so we might find out what happens next, or what happened before, or something...

Thank you!
The final line killed me. :) Great!
*grins* Hope you revive soon!

I do love playing with people's expectations!

Thank you!
ohhhh poor Ianto! at least he has the company of the birds .....
He's not minding it too much. He's in no danger and it's a nice summer's day. He's happy to wait for rescue, lol!

Thank you!

lol oh poor Ianto, Jack might just like the sight of him tied up like that.

great drabble.
We shall see, I have a sort of idea for a sequel, so we might find out...

Thank you!
*snerk!* I'm gonna remember one of these days not to drink anything when you start a story drabble so innocently...I was doing fine until that last line! And Jack is gonna play a lot before untying him! :D
Oops! Sorry? *evil grin*

Well, we'll see - there's a sequel now, which will probably be up tomorrow. It might surprise you!

Thank you!
Awww... thank you so much for this drabble! I don't mind sharing at all, and I loved the follow-up as well. I'm sure Jack can find some interesting ways to test Ianto's psychic abilities-- not to mention the 'extracurricular' applications. ^_~

You're so sweet to remember my birthday. Thank you!
*hugs* You're welcome! Glad you liked it!

I'm sure Jack will find many interesting ways to teach Ianto to use his newly-discovered talents. Those are going to be fun lessons for both of them!

Thank you!

Hope you had a happy birthday!
LOL at that last line! It all seemed so very bucolic and peaceful--until you find out that Ianto had no choice in the matter! Well, at least he's making the best of a bad situation. :-p
Ianto's very 'glass half full' these days, lol!

Thank you!
Another ordinary day at work. ;)
That's Torchwood for you! At least Ianto is making the most of it.

Thank you!
The ending was a bit of a change of tone! :-)
There was me thinking it was a nice relaxing day off for the boys and you throw in that! At least Ianto is ok and seems to be uninjured. Hope Jack isn't too long rescuing him!
Heehee! I love wrong-footing readers!

Ianto is very pragmatic. He'll make the most of the nice afternoon lying around doing nothing.

Fear not though, he is about to be 'rescued'!

Thank you!
oh ????
what what Ianto did?
or rather what they play?
Well, it was aliens that did it, lol!

Thank you!
