Drabble: Get Well Soon

Title: Get Well Soon

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto.

Rating: PG

Written For: Challenge 339: Green at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto’s under the weather and not inclined to be appreciative of his friends’ efforts to make him feel better.

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

Lying in bed, looking around his bedroom, Ianto felt as if he was living in a florist’s. Why was it that people always sent flowers as a Get Well Soon message?

It wasn’t that he didn’t like them, they were lovely, but in the two weeks he’d been laid up, covered in green spots because of an alien virus, so many people had sent them that he’d run out of vases. The last three bunches had to be crammed in a bucket.

He vowed that the next person who brought flowers was going to get them rammed up their arse!

The End


Testy Ianto is testy :)
He's having nightmares about being lost in the jungle because of all the greenery, poor boy.

Thank you!
You don't really know who your friends are until you get sick, and Ianto is discovering that the hard way!

And just how many of those flowers were sent by Jack?
Just the first, biggest bunch - then everyone else started copying him. Sadly, people don't seem to have a lot of imagination or sense when it comes to get well soon gifts. Years ago, when I was in hospital, my dad gave me a jar of home made jam. Totally impractical for me, but I think Ianto might have preferred that to a jungle of flowers adding hay fever to his woes!

Thank you.

Poor Ianto, he really should have requested chocolates instead. You can never have too many chocolates!

I'm sure he was feeling too rough to make suggestions on what he'd like as Get Well Soon gifts, otherwise he would have said something. Not that half the team would listen to his requests anyway. A lot of the flowers probably came from neighbours, they heard he wasn't well and sent flowers to cheer him up, lol!

Thank you!
Oh poor Ianto, I hope he hasn't got hayfever to boot LOL
He probably has now, it would be just his luck!

Thank you!
Aww poor Ianto.
Is it wrong that my first thought on reading the last line was - I hope Owen sticks his head round the door now behind a huge bunch of sunflowers...? :-)
Jack would want to watch the surgical procedure that followed ;)

Thank you!
