Characters: Ianto, Lisa.
Written For: Challenge 437: Nothing at tw100.
Summary: Lisa is dead, and Ianto is too numb to feel anything.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
It was over, Lisa was dead, along with the two people she’d killed. Ianto had been overwhelmed at the time with so many emotions. Grief, anger, guilt, shame, horror… warring inside him until he’d thought they would tear him apart from the inside, but now he felt… nothing, just a cold, numb emptiness where his heart used to be.
He wondered if that was how it felt to be dead, but he was still breathing, his stubborn body refusing to relinquish its hold on life.
How long could a hollow man keep going with nothing but life left to lose?
