A/N: This one’s a double drabble.

Ianto frowned at Jack as he walked into his lover’s office. “You look hot, and I don’t mean that as a compliment.”

“Funny, because I don’t feel hot,” Jack replied, shivering. His face was flushed, his hair was limp and lifeless, plastered to his sweaty forehead, and he was hunched in his chair. When he looked up, Ianto could see his eyes were bloodshot. He didn’t need a thermometer to tell Jack had a high fever; even from the other side of the desk he could feel the heat radiating from Jack’s body.

“Come on, let’s get you to bed.”

“Thanks for the offer, but I don’t think I’m up to it today.”

Ianto rolled his eyes. “I meant so you can lie down and rest.” He helped Jack down to his bunker and settled him on the cot before fetching Owen.

“You’ve got a fever,” Owen told Jack after a brief examination.

“I already figured that one out,” Jack replied, teeth chattering. “It’s Ventaxian flu, I’ve had it before. Don’t worry, human’s can’t catch it.”

“Then how come you have?” Ianto wanted to know.

“Let’s just say I’m not one hundred percent human.”

“That doesn’t surprise me at all.”

The End


If he's not 100% human then what is the other percentage, that is the question LOL

great drabble.
Bits and bobs of various alien species,I expect. Humans leave earth, start cross-breeding with aliens... There are probably very few pure humans left by Jack's time.

Thank you!
Poor Jack. Ordinary Human flu is nasty enough, My doc sneaks the flu vaccine in with my warfarin test so I can't dodge it. Not that I would. Wonder if Owen can come up with a vaccine for the Ventaxian strain, he's clever enough. Sweet gentle Iqanto will nurse Jack through the worst of it, and will reap a fine reward when it's over
I still have to pay for my flu shot. Not that I mind, it's worth it.

Ianto will take care of Jack, who will recover faster than most people would. Owen will work on a vaccine, just in case it's needed. for future protection. After all, working for Torchwood, who knows whether they might wind up not quite entirely human and therefore susceptible?

Thank you!

Looks like someone is going to be getting the Ianto Jones full treatment until he's better. Lucky devil.

Count on it!

Thank you.
