Drabble: A Tricky Problem

Title: A Tricky Problem
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, Jack, Gwen, Team Torchwood.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 414: Stalk at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Torchwood are good an covering up strange happenings around Cardiff, but once in a while even their ingenuity is tested to the limit.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Team Torchwood stood in the Botanical gardens, staring at something that very definitely didn’t belong there.

“This is going to take some explaining,” Ianto said in a resigned voice

“Can’t we just get rid of it somehow?” Gwen asked.

“How? I’m open to suggestions.”

They all looked at each other in silence.

“It’s too big to dig up. We can’t use weed-killer without killing off half the gardens, and there’s no guarantee it would work anyway,” Ianto pointed out.

“I could chop it down,” Jack suggested.

Ianto rolled his eyes. “I can see the headlines now. ‘Jack slays giant beanstalk’.”

The End
