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


Talk about starting over - that's a biggie!

LIke you, I'm trying to do the weekly drabbles but hope to do some other stuff too.
Thank you, t was the first scenario that came to mind when I read the prompt, though there are several other equally appropriate canon events that could be used. I've written another canon one and I'm considering a non-canon one... I like this prompt!

I have a lot of things to juggle at the moment and I really want to write something longer than a drabble, but at least the drabbles keep me writing when I haven't got much time for it.
