Drabble: Unsurprised

Title: Unsurprised

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, mentions Jack.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 377: Surprise at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack’s efforts to give Ianto a birthday surprise or two aren’t terribly successful.

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

“It’s the thought that counts,” Ianto reminded himself, hanging up the phone after confirming the reservations Jack had made at a very nice restaurant.

“Jack’s trying.” He smiled at the double meaning as he confirmed with the baker the decorations on the birthday cake Jack had ordered.

“This is all very thoughtful,” he mused as he dutifully signed for the tickets to the rugby match that the courier was delivering.

It was nice to know that Jack had remembered his birthday and was taking such pains to make it special. It just wasn’t going to be much of a surprise.

The End


Discretion has never been Jack's strong suit. LOL!
Ianto's finding that out ;)

Than you!
At least, he tried and for a man like Jack, it means a lot. Thank for sharing.
Well, at least Ianto knows he won't get any unpleasant birthday surprises - he already knows exactly what he's getting!

Thank you!

You're going to have to be very good to outfox Mr Jones. Bless.

It would have helped if Jack hadn't given the office number with his contact details...

Thank you!
Aww Jack is sweet. Just not good at thinking his plans through all the way! LOL
His heart's in the right place, and at least Ianto knows he won't get any nasty surprises on his birthday, lol!

Thank you!
Yes he knows jack means well and appreciates it, but how DO you surprise Ianto, who knows Everything?
With great difficulty. I guess Jack didn't bother to try!

Thank you!
Perhaps Ianto can pretend to be surprised lol

Great drabble
He'll do his best, lol!

Thank you!
Jack did his best!
already, he doesn't forget .
but, one day, he will arrive to make a (good) surprise birthday, one day ...
I'm sure!
(since he has plenty of time to learn ...)
He did try, and one day he'll get it right.

Thank you!
