Title: The Disappearance Of Agatha
Characters: Jack, Agatha Christie
Written For: Challenge 278 – Women’s History at tw100
Summary: Agatha Christie disappeared on Friday, December 3rd, 1926, and reappeared 11 days later. This is probably not what happened.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: Thanks to my amazing f-list who came to my rescue when I couldn’t come up with a single idea for this prompt. This and its companion piece are courtesy of tardisjournal, who suggested that Jack, in all his time travelling, must have met a few historical women - so here’s one!
Agatha Christie met Jack Harkness only briefly. Stumbling from her car, still shaking from nearly hitting something, she was grabbed, there was a flash of brilliant light, and she was in the arms of a very handsome man.
He’d apparently been expecting her.
“Sorry about that. Let me buy you a drink.”
She never remembered her encounter, or knew what happened. One minute she was driving along a quiet lane in Surrey, the next she was checked into a Harrogate hotel under a false name, with no idea how she got there.
Only a handful of people knew the truth.
