Drabble: Up High

Title: Up High
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Jack.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 467: Down at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Jack can’t stay on rooftops all the time.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Heights don’t bother Jack; he isn’t sure they ever did. Being up high is the closest he gets to flying most days, and flying is the greatest freedom he’s ever found, so when he needs to escape from everything, he heads for a rooftop, high above the city, where all his problems, left far below him, somehow seem insignificant.

He stands on the edge, the wind whipping around him, blowing all his cares away, until at last he feels able to take up the burden of his responsibilities once more. Then he goes back down and becomes the Captain again.

The End



I imagine it is quite a hard job to be the Captain all the time ... Fortunately, he has found a way to unwind just for a little while ...
Everyone needs an escape sometimes.

Thank you!
Good thing hes not afraid of heights then LOL

great drabble
It is rather! Thank you!
Nice one! I'm horribly afraid of heights, so it gives me the creeps seeing him up there. But he does look good :)

Same here, I feel unsafe even standing on a chair, but Jack does look impressive standing on a roof!

Thank you.

Everybody needs a little time up somewhere they can let their troubles drift away, but eventually we all have to come back down to earth.

So true, real life is always there waiting.

Thank you!
