Drabble: Elusive Butterfly

Title: Elusive Butterfly

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto, Owen

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 281 – Lepidoptera at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Catching the alien is sometimes a bit unpredictable…

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Just to be different, this time the Rift spat out the alien equivalent of a butterfly – 30cm across, four lacy, pastel coloured wings and tentacles for legs.

Chasing it proved exhausting and fruitless, until…

“Oh, well done! You caught it! I think it likes you.” Jack sounded half impressed, half jealous as he ushered Ianto into the SUV.

“Not a word from anyone, or you’ll all be on permanent decaf!” Ianto snarled stepping into the Hub a short while later, the alien perched at a jaunty angle on his head like an Easter bonnet.

Owen fell off his chair laughing.
