Drabble version



Strolling through ASDA, doing the shopping, Jack stopped so suddenly that Ianto walked smack into him.



“Ow! Watch where you’re going!”



“Wasn’t my fault, you shouldn’t have stopped. Why did you?”



“Rhubarb,” was Jack’s helpful answer.



“Of course,” Ianto replied, deadpan.



OoOoO



Hours later, Ianto watched Jack take the rhubarb pie out of the oven and cut into it, letting out clouds of steam and an enticing aroma. Waiting for it to cool enough to eat was torture.



When he finally sampled it, Ianto decided he must be in heaven.



“Delicious! I must admit, this was one of your better ideas!”



The End




Extended version



Strolling through ASDA, doing the shopping one relatively lazy day, Jack stopped so abruptly that Ianto, who was walking behind him studying his shopping list, walked smack into him.



“Ow!” Jack yelped. “Watch where you’re going!”



“Wasn’t my fault, you shouldn’t have stopped without warning. Why did you?”



“Rhubarb,” was Jack’s helpful answer.



“Of course,” Ianto replied, deadpan.



OoOoOoO



Later that afternoon, sitting in their cosy kitchen, Ianto watched as Jack took the freshly baked rhubarb pie out of the oven and cut into it, letting out a cloud of steam and a mouth-watering aroma. Waiting for it to cool enough for them to eat was sheer torture.



When he finally got to sample it, Ianto decided he must be in heaven.



“Delicious! I have to admit, this was one of your better ideas!”



“There’s nothing to beat a homemade rhubarb pie,” Jack agreed. “More custard?”



“Don’t mind if I do.”



The End

ummmm sounds really yummy!
It is. Rhubarb makes the best sweet pie filling =)

Thank you!

Mmmm.... desert by Jack. Yummy!

It's a real treat. And then Ianto can have Jack for dessert ;)

Thank you!
I love both versions of this story, Rhubarb pie is delicious.

great work
One of my favourites!

Thank you!
Oh yummy. Even better with a little touch of preserved ginger chopped into it. Not that either of them, need gingering up. Good to see Jack taking care of Ianto,
Mmmmmm Rhubarb and ginger, two of my favourite things in life =D

Jack does pretty good t taking care of Ianto ;)

Thank you!
Mmm, love rhubarb pie! :D
Heaven on a plate!

Thank you!
Nice drabble. And slightly longer fic. Did you do the longer one first then cut it to fit 100 words? Or did you write the drabble first then extend it?

I have to disagree with Jack. Apple pie would beat a rhubarb pie hands down. I love rhubarb, but only raw with sugar. I can't stand it cooked.
To each their own! I can't eat apples these days. Love rhubarb any way.

Uh, sort of both... I wrote, then edited it down to 100 words, then added a bit to the first version.

Forgot to post my other drabbles to tw100, so I'm off to do that now!

Thank you!
I can not say I love rhubarb: too sour or too sweet !!
By cons, a good cake to blackberry: yum !!
I love rhubarb, or blackcurrant. Blackberry is too sweet for me.

Thank you!
