Drabble: Unhappy Anniversary

Title: Unhappy Anniversary

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack/Lucia Moretti

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 327 – Anniversary at tw100

Spoilers: Characters only for CoE.

Summary: Jack’s marriage to Lucia didn’t last very long.

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







Just before their first anniversary, they’d discovered Lucia was pregnant. They’d been thrilled and excited, making plans for their family. By their second anniversary, they’d been parents, their baby daughter the most important person in either of their lives.



By their fourth anniversary, they were fighting most of the time. Lucia had always been spirited and fiery, but now everything he did or said seemed to make her angry, no matter how hard he tried.



But when he finally made it home on their fifth anniversary, laden with flowers and gifts, all Jack found was a note that said: “Goodbye.”



The End

Comments

Poor Jack. I wonder if he really ever truly thought that he could make it work with his immortality or if they weren't both kidding themselves.

Jack has to keep hoping, I guess, otherwise there's no point in trying, and he needs love as much as anyone. Maybe more than most.

Thank you.

Oh, this is heart-breaking.
Sorry =(

I wanted to do a happy anniversary, but the bunnies thought otherwise. The angsty bunnies seem to be flourishing at the moment.

Thank you.
that has to be so hard to come home and find your loved one has left you.

great drabble.
Jack must have been devastated, more from losing his daughter than from Lucia leaving I suspect.

Thank you!
Lucia really had no idea what she had. All she could think of was her own vanity.
She definitely didn't handle the situation well.

Thank you!
*Hugs Jack*
I know Lucia had it tough what with Torchwood and Jack's "gift" and I'm sure Jack wasn't the easiest person to live with, but I always got the impression she wasn't good for him.
This seems like something she would do. Too cowardly to tell him she was going - just leaving a note. And on their anniversary! That's just cruel!
I've always felt that she was just using Jack in some way, like she wanted a child and got one, but didn't really want Jack around once he'd outlived his usefulness.

Thank you.
