The Oncoming Coat

Drabble: Not Home

Title: Not Home

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 382: Gold/Golden at tw100

Spoilers: Slight for Adam.

Summary: Jack is reminded of where he was born.

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







This bit of Welsh coast always reminded Jack of the Boeshane peninsula. Beyond a stretch of scrubland, tall dunes held together by coarse grasses bordered a wide, sandy beach. Surf broke constantly on the shore, the waves sending up plumes of spray, and the salty sea breezes had made vegetation sparse, the few hardy bushes and small trees stunted and twisted.



Walking down to the water’s edge, memories assailed his senses, he almost expected to hear Gray laughing, calling for him to wait.



But it’s not home; the sand is golden instead of white, and his brother is long gone.



The End

Bittersweet...
Yes, it is. Thank you!
Makes me wish we could have seen Jack happy, not having to worry about something for once. Even for one episode.

I guess the banter between him and Ianto was the closet to relax Jack ever could get.
Yeah, he had so much responsibility weighing him down and so much sadness in his life.

Thank you!
I feel so for Jack.
He hasn't had an easy life, that's for sure!

Thank you!
Beautiful and sad... the present is never quite the same as past *sigh* :(
Yeah, I know that feeling. I think about the past a lot.

Poor Jack.

Thank you!
:-)
Thank you!
