A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Discovering the Pterodactyl liked chocolate had been purely accidental. When the Rift dumped her in Cardiff, she’d unsurprisingly taken flight, but bad weather had driven her to seek shelter and it had been simple to open the big doors of the old warehouse and bait the trap with a nice fresh fish. Then all he’d needed to do was wait and close the door as soon as she was inside.
She’d gulped the fish down hungrily, then noticed him and… he should have expected her to lunge at him, but he was worn out from caring for Lisa, and not thinking clearly.
The chocolate had been for him, to keep his energy levels up, but it had fallen from his pocket as he’d dodged her, and been snatched up and swallowed before he could react, the Pterodactyl making purring sounds he interpreted as pleasure.
Knowing chocolate was bad for some animals, he’d kept a close eye; he didn’t want his ticket into Torchwood harmed. But the prehistoric creature thrived on her unusual diet. Careful tests revealed she preferred the dark varieties, but would eat milk chocolate if it was a good brand.
It was the start of a beautiful friendship!
