Drabble: Bond Of Blood

Title: Bond Of Blood

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Gray, Jack’s parents.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 338: Bond at tw100

Spoilers: Adam and Exit Wounds, character only.

Summary: Young Jack’s not happy with his parents’ news at first.

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

When his mother said she was having another baby, Jack wasn’t happy. He wondered if his parents were replacing him, maybe he wasn’t good enough and they hoped the new baby would be better.

He knew he should work harder at lessons, but there was so much to do that was more fun.

Soon he’d have a rival. Everything would change.

When Gray was born, he was proved right; everything did change, but not as he’d expected. When his baby brother was placed in his arms, he felt an instant bond, and vowed to protect him forever, no matter what.

The End


Lovely! Need to explore the Jack/Gray verse more, it's a great point in his character.

I think I've done a couple of others, but there's still a lot to be said, when the right ideas surface.

Thank you!
aww so cute, its sad what happened later on tho.

great drabble.
Yeah, so much tragedy!

Thank you!
Beautiful, however it was a pity Jack was not allowed to protect him forever as he wished!
Yeah, life isn't always kind.

Thank you.

Oh! You know how to pull at the heart-strings!
I'm learning. Jack's relationship with his little brother was so sweet in flashbacks, but circumstance turned Gray into a monster. Such a tragic twist.

Thank you.
Oh, that got me in the feels. Beautiful drabble.
Thank you.

Poor Jack, he so wanted to keep his promise.
Lovely, but then ouch! That last line is so poignant.
Thank you. Yes, that's what I was aiming for. Poor Jack.
