Drabble: Jack’s Touch

Title: Jack’s Touch
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, Lisa, Jack.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 476: Thirst at tw100.
Spoilers: Cyberwoman.
Summary: Hate towards Jack has been replaced by need.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

After Lisa’s execution, Ianto had thought he’d hated Jack. Hating had at least meant he’d felt something other than mind-numbing grief, and guilt over the deaths of two people that he could maybe have prevented if only he’d…


Found a way to cure her sooner?

Or accepted from the start that she was already gone and couldn’t be saved?

Even now he’s not sure.

He couldn’t sustain the hate though; too tired, too defeated, too… lost.

But Jack was there to anchor him.

Now he thirsts for Jack’s touch, the only source of comfort that means anything at all.

The End
