Drabble: Fledglings – Sequel to ‘Mummy Ianto’

Title: Fledglings – Sequel to ‘Mummy Ianto’
Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Team, OCs.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 347: Silver at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: The babies are growing.

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

The creatures had voracious appetites and grew fast. In a week, they’d doubled in size, three-inches long, stalking mealworms as they learned to hunt. They resembled miniature dragons, with iridescent silver scales and delicate wings.

Three weeks and they’d doubled in size again; mealworms were still devoured eagerly but weren’t sufficient challenge for the little hunters. Ianto bought crickets and locusts, watching proudly as the fledglings learned teamwork in order to catch their prey.

The human team adjusted to being used as convenient perches to launch hunts from, and took to checking each other for hitchhikers before leaving the Hub.
