Drabble: Undimmed

Title: Undimmed

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Estelle.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 370: Old Age at tw100

Spoilers: Small for Small Worlds.

Summary: Some people age gracefully.

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

Everyone grows old; Jack had seen it happen so many times and it always saddened him, watching strong young bodies and minds wither as time took its toll.

Some people stood the test of time better than others; to Jack, Estelle was still as beautiful and vibrant as when they’d met, and her mind remained sharp as a tack.

It was so hard lying to her, telling her he was his own son when in truth, the passing years that had brought her to old age hadn’t left a single mark on him. Would she hate him if she knew?

The End
