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


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!
