Drabble: The Language Of Vegetables

Title: The Language Of Vegetables

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: PG

Written For: Challenge 284 – Floriography at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto and Jack have a conversation while shopping.

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

Browsing the supermarket produce section with Ianto, Jack prodded at a lettuce.

“Back in Victorian times, lettuces symbolised cold-heartedness.”

If Ianto was surprised by Jack’s random comment, it didn’t show.

“So if you wanted to tell someone they were cold-hearted, you’d give them a lettuce?”

“Something like that I guess.”

“Bizarre. How about cabbages?”


Ianto nodded sagely. “Sounds about right. Lot of money in cabbages.”

Jack laughed.

“So, if I were to give you this,” Ianto waved a cucumber at Jack, “What would that mean?”

“That I’m onto a sure thing tonight?” Jack sounded hopeful.

Ianto winked. “Could be.”

The End
