Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
How did the saying go? Smile and the world smiles with you, wasn’t it? Ianto had never felt less like smiling. Lisa was gone, having killed two people; now Ianto was on suspension. Well, the part about crying alone was certainly accurate; that was all he’d done for the last week, out of grief, guilt and shame. He couldn’t seem to stop.
When Jack showed up, letting himself in, Ianto was a sodden lump on the sofa.
Jack sat beside him, offering a bar of chocolate.
“Good for your serotonin levels,” he explained, smiling.
Surprised, Ianto found himself smiling back.
