Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
Jack was sitting slumped against the wall of the alley when Gwen crouched down beside him.
“Does it hurt?” she asked, wide-eyed.
Jack stared at her as if she’d just asked the stupidest question ever. “It bit my hand off, Gwen! In what universe would that NOT hurt?” he asked scathingly, clutching at his handless wrist to slow the bleeding.
Ianto and Owen were a short distance away, busy retrieving Jack’s hand from the belly of the now-dead alien.
“Well, you didn’t even say ouch when that thing bit you.”
“That’s because I was too busy trying not to scream!”
