Drabble: Ianto Is Late!

Title: Ianto Is Late!

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 318 – Long Overdue at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Where’s Ianto? He’s late for work!

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

Jack paced his office, worry creasing his forehead. Ianto was late. Ianto was never late! He paced some more, checked his watch again. How long overdue did someone have to be before it was acceptable to send out a search party?

Something must have happened; otherwise he would’ve phoned to say he’d been delayed. Maybe he had phoned! Jack checked his phone was on. Of course it was. No missed calls either. He went back to pacing.

Finally, the cog door rolled back.

“You’re late!”

Ianto rolled his eyes.

“Only by seven minutes, Jack!”

“Where were you? I was worried!”

The End


OMG! what a drama queen!!!!!
Jack overreacts sometimes, lol!

Thank you!
LOL Jacks worried about him being 7 minutes late?? but paranoid there Jack, but yeah I suppose its allowed when you work for Torchwood.

great drabble.
Jack only gets like that when there's nothing going on to distract him. He wanted coffee, but there was no Ianto to make it for him, lol!

Thank you!
Dang, Jack, maybe Ianto stopped off to get some pastries... then again, that is Cardiff they're living in. Glad Jack's concerned but ease up, dude!
He's caffeine-deprived, you know how jumpy that makes him, lol!

Thank you!
That's one of the hazards of being unerringly punctual. When he's always at the very least, on time, if not early, being at all late will freak people out every time.

I prefer to think it was his private Ianto time he was missing, not his morning coffee. A whole night without his Ianto was bound to bring on withdrawal and panic attacks.
Made worse by caffeine withdrawal which made him jumpy and nervous and prone to believing the worst. Poor Jack, he needs Ianto to snuggle with. You'll notice it never occurred to Jack to actually phone Ianto himself...

Thank you!
Poor Ianto a victim of his own awesomeness.
LOL! Yes! He's always on time so now it's expected. Poor boy, his own reputation is proving hard to live up to!

Thank you!

Jack was really needing his caffeine fix! LOL
And his Ianto fix!

Thank you!
Love it!
*grins* Thank you!

It never occurred to Jack that he could just phone Ianto and ask if everything was alright, lol!
Far too simple :)
He was too busy panicking, obviously.
I'm agree with Jack
Ianto isn't never late
He was stuck in traffic, lol!

Thank you!
In my world 7 minutes is practically early!
I think jack may be over reacting, though it's understandable because ianto is so punctual.
Jack gets panicky when Ianto isn't there, I think he suffers from separation anxiety, lol!

Thank you!
