Characters: Ianto, Jack.
Written For: Challenge 434: Hair at tw100.
Summary: Jack’s latest death gives Ianto unexpected cause for concern.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
Jack can heal from anything. Literally. Sometimes a little assistance is required, like sticking bits that get lopped off back where they belong so his amazing healing abilities can knit him together again, but disgusting as that task is, Ianto’s grown used to it.
This is different. Jack died of smoke inhalation before being burned. The burns are healing, but he’s bald. Ianto’s devastated; what’ll he tell Jack when he wakes up? It wasn’t like he could stick Jack’s hair back on. He needn’t have worried though; even as he watches, Jack’s scalp sprouts new hair. Maybe Jack won’t notice.
