Jack pulled at his sock with all his strength, leaning backwards to get leverage with his bare feet against the cement floor. The sock stretched to a ridiculous length but Myfanwy refused to let go; she had a good grip on the toe and it took little effort for her to hold on. Jack, however, was puffing and panting, straining every muscle.

Leaning against the railings, Ianto chucked. Something would have to give soon, and it wouldn’t be Myf.

“It’s your own fault, Jack. I warned you not to toss your clothes everywhere. You’re lucky she only got your sock!”

The End


haha man against beast? Go Myf go!
Jack doesn't stand a chance!

Thank you!
Oh, like Jack has any chance of getting that sock back!
I know, right? Even if he did, it would be stretched so much it would be useless as a sock, but he just won't give up. It's his pride at stake by now, he doesn't want to lose the battle.

Thank you!
This scenario is strikingly familiar to me with an eight month old puppy in the house who is oddly fascinated with socks, and shoes. Not to eat, just to carry around. It's somehow hilarious when a matching pair of either happens to show up in the same place. Trying to chase them down is useless and getting them back after you catch her? Forget it! Jack doesn't stand a chance!
He's doomed to failure but he just refuses tom give up. Ianto doesn't know whether to rolls his eyes or fall over laughing. Even id Jack DID get the sock back, it wouldn't be wearable.

At least your puppy doesn't chew them! Matching pairs must be a rare and startling sight!
That'll teach him to leave leave his sox all over the place LOL

great drabble.
Well, I'm hoping the lesson will be learned 'cause there's no way he's getting that sock back, no matter how hard he tries!

Thank you!
Ha, ha! It appears that Myf is just like a big dog in some respects. My dog loves to play tug-o-war. And to chew socks. :-p
I think she probably is, lol!

And of course this is my second 'sock' piece and now I've used both that I'd written, the fan_flashworks challenge is Footwear *rolls eyes* Great timing!

Thank you!
I shudder to think about what that sock's going to look like in the end! LOL
Very misshapen indeed, and totally unsuitable for use as a sock I would think! At this point though, it's the principle that matters. Jack wants to win this battle. Ianto knows he doesn't stand a chance, but try convincing Jack of that!

Thank you!
LOL now Jack will need to think twice about where he's going to put his clothes during naked time with Ianto!
Not strewn across half the Hub, that's for sure!

Thank you!
LMAO!!! Jack, give up the sock. You lost fair and square. Hate to see what else she has up in her nest of Jack's!
Could be anything up there, lol!

Jack is stubborn, he doesn't want to be the loser!

Thank you!
Jack is so careless!

Thank you!
Might as well just resign yourself to the fact Jack that it is time to buy new socks and listen to Ianto.
The sock is completely useless now, but Jack is so stubborn! Ianto will get him some new socks though. Myf can have that pair.

Thank you!
BAHAHAHAHA naughty dinosaur! Thanks babe! This was awesome!!!!! Just what I needed for my crappy day! :D
I aim to please! Glad I could give you a laugh! =D

Thank you!
Aww, she just wants something of her human's in her eyrie.
Or like ferrets, she really likes smelly socks... Could be either, lol!

Thank you!
I am choosing to believe that it was an affectionate theft.

I didn't know that about ferrets, though. How weird.
I've only read that about ferrets, so I don't know for sure that it's true, I was only a temporary ferret-sitter after a stray wandered into my garden.

I think she just thought it would make good nest material. After all, it had been discarded...

Thank you!
Maybe Jack will learn from this...
Maybe not.
Probably not, lol! Jack persists in his bad behaviours! Wait until he doesn't have any matching socks...

Thank you!
