Drabble: Foot In Mouth: Jack - Sequel to ‘Rebuked’

Title: Foot In Mouth: Jack - Sequel to ‘Rebuked

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto, mentions Nosy.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 342: Foreign Language at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack’s surprised that Nosy really is learning Welsh.

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

“You really are teaching Nosy Welsh?” Jack was astonished; he hadn’t expected Ianto to admit it.

Ianto just shrugged. “Why not? It likes learning new things.”

“Yeah, but… Shouldn’t you be teaching it English instead of a foreign language?”

That earned Jack a withering look.

“First of all, we’re in Wales, so technically, Welsh is not a foreign language here, it’s our native language. Secondly, Nosy is an alien from another planet; it only speaks Fluff. As far as it’s concerned, all earth languages could be considered foreign, and that includes English.”

Jack winced at Ianto’s disapproving tone. “Good point.”

The End
