Characters: Ianto, Jack, Alien.
Written For: Challenge 419 – Survival at tw100.
Summary: Ianto worries about Jack while waiting for the Big Gun to charge.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
Even knowing deep down that Jack was right, it wasn’t easy for Ianto to stand back and watch the man he loved play decoy, running out into the path of the monster, luring it further from habitation. The only good thing was that the creature was so big it manoeuvred slowly. Jack was practically running rings around it, firing his Webley, not that the puny bullets made any impression on the creature’s tough hide.
The Big Gun was seventy-five percent charged. Ianto could only wait and pray that Jack would survive long enough for it to reach a hundred percent.
