A/N: Inspired by in_motu_proprio – as soon as I read her reply to my comment on her drabble, this popped into my head. I wrote it in 5 minutes. Thanks for the inspiration!
Jack watched Tosh carefully in the aftermath of Mary. It was so unfair. Time after time, she was tossed aside like yesterday’s newspaper, her heart broken by people like Mary who only wanted to use her, or like Owen who barely noticed she existed except when he needed her help with something.
Yet each time, she bravely picked up the pieces of her shattered heart and carried on, somehow keeping hope alive.
Brave, brilliant and beautiful, Jack knew she was a rare treasure, he just hoped that someday someone would see her true worth and cherish her as she deserved.
