Ianto smiled to himself; Jack had met his match, he wasn’t going to get away with cheating this time.

Jack took the dice and rolled them, scooping them up before anyone could get a look at them, although Ianto was sure both had been low numbers. “Thirteen,” he announced, moving his counter, knowing it would send him up a ladder and that much closer to winning.

“No, Uncle Jack,” Mica said firmly, “you added up wrong, the most you can get with two sixes is twelve.”

Jack frowned at her. “Are you sure?”

Mica nodded. “I know my times tables.”

The End


Hahaha! Jack, this kid got you by a mile! Very cute drabble :D
Mica is far too smart for Jack. He thought cheating against a little kid would be easy. He was wrong ;)

Thank you!
Well done Mica! LOL
She's very smart, much to Jack's dismay!

Thank you!

Ha ha, don't think you can outwit a Jones... :)

They're a clever bunch!

Thank you.
Kids are smarter than you think Jack.

Great drabble and good on Mica
Especially kids related to Ianto Jones, lol!

Thank you!
Cute! And shame on Jack, cheating against a little kid.
As Ianto has said, 'He always cheats', but this time he's not getting away with it!

Thank you!


Remember Jack had to cheat and lie to survive between leaving .the Time Agency and meeting the Doctor. After being abandoned by the Doctor [BOO hiss] even more so. Old habits die hard, but he'll learn with Ianto's and Mica's help.

Re: ea

That's true, he learned to be a very good con-man and those skills still come in useful, but he needs to learn there's more satisfaction in winning if you don't cheat.

(I'm working on a fic for my bingo card where Ianto confronts the Doctor over his treatment of Jack. It's getting quite long, almost 3k already. Ianto has A LOT to say!)

Thank you.
