Summary: It’s Tosh’s first birthday since she joined Torchwood.

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

A/N: This one’s for darcy58 who asked for something with Jack and Tosh. It ended up as a double drabble.

Five months after joining Torchwood, Tosh arrived at the Hub early one morning to find her workstation transformed.

A huge bouquet of yellow and white roses in a blue vase stood in front of her monitors, with a small and beautifully wrapped parcel and an equally beautiful cake beside it. An envelope was propped against the vase, her name written neatly on the front.

Tosh was so busy staring she didn’t even hear Jack come up behind her.

“Happy birthday, my beautiful Toshiko!”

She gasped and spun around.

“But I didn’t tell anyone…”

“It’s in your file,” Jack told her.

Tosh reached out, caressing the velvety rose petals.

“They’re beautiful. Thank you, Jack.”

“You deserve everything. Go ahead; open your present. I have another surprise for you before the others get here.”

With trembling hands, Tosh unwrapped her gift, a delicate silver bracelet set with amethysts.

“Oh Jack, you shouldn’t have. It’s too much!”

“Nonsense. Toshiko, you are a gem beyond price. I believe in you, you just need to believe in yourself. Now, come on, your mother’s on the phone.”

Speechless, tears in her eyes and a smile on her face, Tosh hugged Jack tight. She felt truly blessed.

The End


Thank you!

Tosh is still lacking confidence in herself after being in the UNIT prison. Jack's having a hard time convincing her of how special she is, but he'll keep trying until she believes him.
Aww this is absolutely wonderful :-)
Jack can be sweet and thoughtful and caring when he wants to be :-) and Tosh is so worth it! :-)
Jack certainly thinks she's worth it. The only person who has doubts is Tosh herself.

Thank you!
Tosh deserves the world and I know Jack would love to give it to her.

great drabble.
He would if he could. but he'll settle for showing her how much she's appreciated.

Thank you!
OMG! that was so sweet of him! Tosh is a true jewel!
Jack knows that, but Tosh is taking a bit of convincing. She's still recovering from being in the UNIT prison. Jack will show her how special she is though.

Thank you!
Tosh is a gem beyond measure.
Jack agrees, she's so talented and so special, she just doesn't believe it herself.

Thank you!
*grins* Now THAT is a great birthday present! :D
Jack knew just how to make Tosh's day!

Thank you!
Jack at his best with his Tosh. While she may lack a little more self-confidence, Jack's right about her being a gem beyond price. Love his putting her on the phone with her Mom! Take that, UNIT! :D

Lovely gem of a drabble :D :D :D
Thank you!

By treating her the way she deserves, Jack was showing her that he values her. Every act like that helped to boost her confidence and aid her recovery.

I can't believe that Jack would keep Tosh from her family; he knows the importance of family.

Thank you!
I like the idea that Jack has chosen his team not only for their expertise but also to give them another chance.
and takes care of them.
Yes, he finds people who have nothing left to lose and gives them a reason for living.

Thank you!
Aww, Jack is the best boss ever! :D
He wanted Tosh to see how much he values her.

Thank you!
