Drabble: Goodbye Town

Title: Goodbye Town

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto

Rating: G

Spoilers: Maybe CoE for references to Ianto’s early life.

Summary: Ianto starts on the journey that leads him to Torchwood One.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘Goodbye Town’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 292: Billboard Hot 100 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.







Ianto felt like a heavy weight had been lifted from his shoulders.



The funeral was over, his father was gone and he was free at last. There was nothing left to hold him here on the estate; finally he could escape, spread his wings and fly. He already knew where he’d go.



London beckoned, a place no one knew him; he could start over, reinvent himself and become something more than an estate kid. He had dreams, ambitions. He’d make something of his life; prove everyone wrong.



His only regret on leaving his hometown was that he hadn’t left sooner.



The End


Comments

And little did he know what he was going to find when he left... *sigh*
No, he didn't. Would he have gone if he'd known what the future held?

Thank you!
And then he discovered Torchwood, well his life did change alright.

Great drabble.
It certainly did, but not always for the best.

Thank you!
*Hugs him.*
I know this is happy - he finally got out and did something, but the tone of it just feels really sad...
It is sad really. He's leaving everything he knows behind for an unknown future that turns into a nightmare.

Thank you!
