Drabble Version


As Jack started to slip, Ianto grabbed his arm to stop him falling.


“It’s okay, I’ve got you!” He tightened his grip around Jack’s wrist.


“That’s all very well,” Jack gasped out, still teetering precariously, “but who’s got you?”


It was a very good question. As Jack tipped further out, putting more strain and weight on his would-be saviour’s arm, Ianto’s feet started to slip too.


“Shit, I really didn’t think this through,” Ianto muttered.


It was too late to let go; Jack toppled, dragging Ianto with him, and with a horrible squelching sound, they fell in the mud.


“Yuk!”



The End




Extended Version


As Jack started to slip, Ianto grabbed for one of his flailing arms to keep him from falling.


“It’s okay, Jack, I’ve got you, hang on!” He tightened his grip around Jack’s wrist, squeezing so tightly Jack thought he could feel the bones grinding together.


“That’s all very well,” Jack gasped out, still teetering precariously, “but who’s got you?”


It was a very good question. As Jack tipped further out, putting more strain and weight on his would-be saviour’s arm, Ianto’s feet started to slip too.


“Shit, I really didn’t think this through,” Ianto muttered.


It was too late to let go; Jack toppled, dragging Ianto with him, and with a horrible squelching sound, they fell headfirst into the mud.


“Yuk!”


Crawling out, muddy Jack hugged his equally muddy lover. “Not the best rescue attempt ever, but thanks for trying.”


“Next time you’re facing certain mud, you’re on your own.”



The End

Oh dear, back to the hub for showers, coffee and cuddles I see a trip to the drycleaners in Ianto's future. Better than trying to clean up the mud. There will also be a reward from Jack for his attempt at rescue.
Yeah, as rescue attempts go, it could've been better, but Jack will reward Ianto for trying at least.

They can clean each other up once they're back in the Hub, but Ianto might insist on stripping in the garage before they go any further to avoid spreading the mud ;)

Thank you!
LOL but some kinds of mud have healing power LOL
Fortunately the clean-up could be quite sexy this time!
Cleaning each other off is definitely going to be the best part of this experience!

Thank you!
Lol it sounded so serious in the beginning.

Great drabble ans extended version.

You know me, I love playing with people's expectations!

Thank you!
