Drabble: Stunted Growth

Title: Stunted Growth

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 394: Grow at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto thinks he’s a failure.

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

“Something’s wrong, it looks smaller than it did yesterday. I’m no expert, but shouldn’t it be getting bigger? I’m following the instructions to the letter; plenty of light, not too much water, feeding once a week. I thought it was doing well, but instead of growing I’d swear it’s shrunk.” Ianto’s shoulders slumped in defeat.

“Looks fine to me. Size isn’t everything,” Jack hastened to reassure him.

“No, it’s useless. Might as well face it, I can’t even grow a Geranium.”

Jack had to fess up. “I knocked your plant off the windowsill yesterday, this one’s a replacement. I’m sorry.”

The End

Sequel: One Man's Threat


Awwwww! ^.^ Poor Ianto!
Yeah, he would have carried on thinking he was a failure if Jack hadn't confessed!

Thank you!

*sighs* What are we going to do with you Jack?

Jack looks hopeful "Spank me?"

He's a bad boy, so he should be punished, but I have a feeling a spanking would be more of a reward than a punishment, lol!

Thank you.
Oh, Jacks gonna be in trouble.

Great drabble
He is, though he goes get points for replacing the plant. He should have owned up immediately instead of making Ianto fret over his Geranium.

Ahahahaha - Ianto should learn to trust his powers of observation.
He thought he was, lol! He just didn't realise the plant was an imposter.

Thank you.
Naughty Jack. At least he 'fessed up when he saw Ianto was upset.I'm sure there will be a suitable punishment/reward which will please both of them. Ianto could always use some of Owen's fertilizer to help geranium along
He could, but he doesn't want it to take over the whole kitchen ;)

I've written a sort of follow-up to this for slashthedrabble

Thank you!
Oh, Jack! LMAO
He tried to cover up his accident, but Ianto is too observant, lol!

Thank you!
it is not good to have wanted to hide !!
He didn't want to upset Ianto - or have Ianto mad at him. He failed at the second part!

Thank you!
