Drabble: Bad Timing

Title: Bad Timing

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto, Owen, Gwen.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 370: Old Age at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Alien technology doesn’t always cause problems at convenient moments.

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

Torchwood’s latest brush with alien technology had resulted in Owen and Gwen being de-aged. It was unfortunate timing as Tosh was in Japan visiting her family.

“Look, we’ve seen things like this before,” Jack told them. “Tosh always makes comprehensive notes on all technology she studies. You’ve got nothing to worry about, I’ll soon have you both back to normal.”

Famous last words.

An hour later, Jack had managed to reverse the de-aging, resulting in two of his agents becoming old age pensioners somewhat prematurely.

“Oh well. At least they’re not kids anymore,” Ianto sighed. “Back to the drawing board.”

The End
