Jack was slumped at his desk, so deep in thought he didn’t even Ianto enter.

“Penny for them?”

“What?” Jack looked up, startled.

“Penny for your thoughts.”

“I’m not sure they’re even worth that much.”

“Tough.” Ianto tossed a small coin onto Jack’s blotter. “That’s the lowest denomination we have these days.”

Picking up the coin, Jack studied it. “Estelle used to save all her pennies in a jar. When it was full she’d donate the money to a good cause.”

“She sounds like quite a lady.”

“She was. I wish you could’ve met her. She would have liked you.”

The End


Awwww I am sure that both of them would have spent many hours talking and sharing things as they are two old and good souls.
Yes, I think they would have got along really well.

Thank you.

Too bad Jack couldn't say who he really was to the older Estelle. Too complicated.:(
I like to believe that deep down she suspected the truth, but let Jack keep that secret. She was a very special lady.

Thank you.

It would have been nice if there was a scene where Estelle confessed this to Ianto.:)
Yes, but sadly they never got to meet. Jack took Gwen instead, and she was really dismissive of everything Estelle believed. I wanted to slap her. Which is nothing new; I always want to slap Gwen.
Gwen was probably jealous of Estelle. It just made her look bad.
Gwen was jealous of everyone who had things she wanted. I think she was even jealous of Jack because of the power he had as head of Torchwood and because of his immortality.

In regards to Gwen, I will quote Amy Pond...

"What is the point of you"?*burn*
Aww Jack it must be so hard for him always to lose the ones he loves, the episode with Estelle was heartbreaking.

great drabble.
I know! And he had to go on pretending that he was his own son. Although, I like to think she knew he was the same man she'd loved back then.

Thank you.
Poor Jack, so many memories and so many losses. I think Estelle knew I agree with earlier comment, Gwen always needs a good slapping.. Estelle would have liked Ianto, but never Gwen, who has no respect for anyone
I agree. Estelle tolerated Gwen's presence because it was the polite thing to do, especially since she was with Jack, but that doesn't mean she liked her. Ianto on the other hand, I think she would have warmed to immediately because he has such good manners. Unlike Gwen.

Thank you.

Aw *wibbles*

Yeah *pets the boys*
