Double Drabble: Everywhere I Go

Title: Everywhere I Go

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack’s humming a tune as he and Ianto head back to the Hub.

Word Count: 200

Written For: Prompt #388: Lyrics, at slashthedrabble.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters. They belong to the BBC.

A/N: Title and lyrics are from Willie Nelson’s Everywhere I Go. They just seemed perfect for Torchwood.

Rift retrievals were, by their very nature, unpredictable and this one had been a bit rough on Ianto, but now he was warm and comfortable, and nothing much else seemed to matter. Soothed by gentle, rhythmic movement, he was relaxed and half-drowsing as he and Jack made their way through the nighttime streets of Cardiff, heading back to the Hub. Jack was humming quietly, a simple, pleasant, but unfamiliar tune.

“What’s that song you’re humming?” Ianto roused himself enough to ask.

“Hmmm? Oh, it’s just something I heard on the radio a few days ago. Seemed to fit our current situation.” Jack started to sing the words. “I’ll take you with me everywhere I go. I’ll put you in my pocket, who will know? Right next to my heart at every show, I’ll take you with me everywhere I go.”

A small snort came from Jack’s breast pocket and tiny Ianto levered himself up to peer out the top, looking up at Jack’s chin. “There really is a song for every occasion, isn’t there?”

Jack tilted his head to look down at his miniaturised boyfriend. “There is, although I don’t think whoever wrote that one quite had this in mind.”

The End
