Summary: It’s the moment of truth…
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
The boom of the Big Gun was deafening, and the recoil would have knocked Ianto off his feet if he hadn’t been prepared for it. The projectile it fired was a single armour-piercing grenade, but to be on the safe side, Ianto had aimed it straight down the creature’s throat. When the grenade exploded, so did the alien; even something so massive couldn’t survive that kind of destruction.
Ianto let out a breath he hadn’t realised he was holding, set the gun aside, and ran towards Jack, needing proof of his lover’s survival.
It’s a good day when nobody dies.
