Wandering into the hothouse, Ianto found Owen standing near one of his plants, looking troubled.
“Problems?” he asked casually.
“I think something’s wrong with Gordon.”
Ianto didn’t bat an eyelash, having long since become used to Owen naming his alien plants. He moved to stand beside his colleague.
“Not sure. He just seems down.”
Truthfully, Gordon did look rather droopy.
“Maybe he just needs cheering up.”
“How do you cheer up a plant?”
Ianto shrugged. “Not my area of expertise. You’ll think of something.”
Owen thought then moved Gordon to the window overlooking the Hub.
Surprisingly, it worked!
