It was over. Lisa was gone.

 

He’d known for a long time, just couldn’t admit it, not even to himself. No choice now; his hopes and dreams were splintered beyond repair, his future unknown.

 

He looked at Jack.

 

“What do I do now?”

 

“That’s up to you. You have a month to think things over. After that, you’ll have a choice – retcon or Torchwood. A new life, or a fresh start with us.”

 

As Jack left the flat, Ianto sat on his couch and wondered if he had the courage to start over with people who no longer trusted him.

The End



Comments

Thank you! I found there are quite a few places places in canon where the Starting Over prompt was apt, but this was the first that came to mind. I wanted to show Jack giving Ianto the choice instead of making it for him. The suspension is more a kind of compassionate leave than a punishment, giving Ianto the time and space to decide his own future.
