A/N: Another one that hit 100 words exactly, though this time I did have to substitute a couple of words after I finished because I typed something wrong. Sheer carelessness.
“One day,” Jack had told him, as they lay together earlier that night on the narrow cot in Jack’s little cubbyhole, “I’m going to show you the stars. We’ll get out there in space and I’ll show you things you’ve never dreamed of.”
Ianto had smiled drowsily. “I’d like that.” He didn’t believe it would ever happen, but still it was a lovely fantasy.
Of course, that had been earlier, before they’d fallen asleep.
Now Ianto was awake, and he wasn’t happy anymore.
“Ow! Damnit, Jack!”
He was seeing stars now alright; Jack had accidentally pushed him off the bed.
