Drabble: Warning

Title: Warning
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Jack.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 334 – Red at tw100
Spoilers: Small Worlds.
Summary: To anyone else, it would just be a rose petal.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Even now, after so many years, the sight of a red rose petal on his desk chills Jack to the bone.

It’s the Fae; he knows it as surely as if he’d seen them place the petal there themselves. The memory of the day they killed his whole squad to avenge the death of their chosen one is as vivid now as the day it happened. It’s something he’ll never forget.

Whatever is happening, the petal is a warning not to interfere, a reminder that no one can hide from their vengeance.

It’s a warning he’s not about to ignore.

The End


I love the idea of roses being a warning instead of something romantic. It's so very creepy.
It really changes the way you look at them.

Thank you.
Great drabble that was a very creepy episode.
One of the creepiest.

Thank you.

I love this scene. The look on Jack's face in the police holding cell says it all just how bad these things are.

Jack's faced them before, he knows the danger. The others should have listened to him.

Thank you.
You know it's bad when it scares Jack! *shudders*
Couldn't do 'Red' without rose petals and the fae. That was just such a memorable moment from the show.

Thank you!
That was when rose petals became scary to me.
Same here. They were so innocent before, but that episode was downright creepy!
