Drabble: Success

Title: Success
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 455: Shower at tw100.
Spoilers: Set pre-series, before Ianto joins Torchwood One.
Summary: Life in London isn’t what Ianto thought it would be.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

At one time, Ianto had thought the measure of a man’s success was a good job, his own home, and an expensive car. Then he left the estate, headed to London, and has spent several months living hand-to-mouth, working whatever menial part-time jobs he can get, and living in shared squats.

His idea of success has downgraded significantly from owning his own place to living somewhere with a shower that actually works and isn’t shared by six other people.

Funny how having access to running water that’s more than barely lukewarm has gone from a necessity to an unimaginable luxury.

The End
