“I’ve told you time and again not to play with things you don’t understand, but you still do it the moment my back’s turned,” Ianto sighed, glaring at Jack in exasperation. “I expect Meriel to behave irresponsibly, she’s only three, but you’re supposed to be an adult and set a good example!”
“I’m sorry.” Jack turned on the puppy-dog eyes. “I just wanted to help! It was my fault it broke; I thought I could fix it.”
Ianto rolled his eyes. He didn’t know what Jack had done, but now the vacuum cleaner blew instead of sucking. What a mess!
