Drabble: The Man

Title: The Man

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack, OFC

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: A waitress has a crush on one of the diners.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘The Man’, 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.

She doesn’t know his name; she’s too shy to ask. When she thinks of him, it’s just as ‘the man in the suit’. Sometimes she curses her shyness. If she were more outgoing she’d ask his name, start a conversation. Not that such a gorgeous, well-dressed man would ever be interested in a mousy waitress. Instead, she just approaches his table to take his order.

He smiles at her, and he’s just about to order when another man arrives, sitting down with a dazzling smile for the man.

“Sorry I’m late, love.”

Oh. Well, she never stood a chance anyway.

The End


All the good ones are always taken...
So true. And the rest of us just get to drool over them in yhe background.

Thank you!
Or are on the other bus - or both. lOVELY can really sympathise
Thank you.

Yeah, I'm sure there are a LOT of disappointed women around Cardiff!

(Nice Bodie icon!)
That's OK, honey--none of us did. LOL.

At least she can enjoy them from afar, like we do! Maybe she can get together with the painter from your other story and start a locally-based Janto fan club. ;)
It's a sad fact that all we can do is look and drool.

She'll find herself someone nice one day, in the meantime she can still admire Jack and Ianto when they come to the restaurant. It's better than nothing.

Thank you!
Aww poor girl, Ianto has eyes only for one person and he wears a military coat :)

great drabble.
There must be a great many disappointed girls in Cardiff.

Thank you!
ouch, poor girl!
Many women still drooling over them
Yes, she was just a random example.

Thank you!
Oh dear. She's not alone though - Cardiff must be full of girls (and boys) drooling over one or other of them (or both!) but they only have eyes for each other! :-)
there are a lot of disappointed people in Cardiff, it's true, lol!

Thank you!
I'd be mooning over both of them. Crushing over them bad while at the same time wondering about what hot monkey love they make. Wait, I already do! ;D
We are the enlightened ones!

Thank you!
