Drabble: Stranded On Halloween

 

 

Title: Stranded On Halloween

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto, Team

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 258 – Ghost of a chance at tw100

Spoilers: None.

Summary: Halloween’s a washout for the team.

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

A/N: Something silly, because I really wanted a Halloween-set drabble. This is my second version as the first seemed insensitive bearing in mind recent events with Hurricane Sandy.

 

 



 

 

In retrospect, attempting to drive though a river ford in pouring rain probably wasn’t one of Jack’s better ideas. As water poured in, the SUV’s engine coughed, spluttered and died.

 

The team scrambled out, quickly becoming soaked through by rain and river water.

 

With no hope of a phone signal this far out, they trudged through mud and rain to the nearest shelter, a spooky, abandoned house about a mile from the road.

 

“Some Halloween,” sighed Ianto

 

Standing dripping in the hallway, Jack studied their surroundings and grinned.

 

“Look on the bright side, there’s always the chance of a ghost!”

 

The End
