Cardiff Spring (Torchwood, allergies)

There was a whole story for this.  Then the computer died, for better or worse.

 

TWTWTWTWTW

Monday

Jack Harkness bounded  through the Tourist Information Center door, coat swirling, (as if Jack could ever have just walked anywhere).

“Ianto Jones,” Jack called by way of greeting, before launching off into the list of things he needed Ianto to do,  “I have to make an emergency trip to London and I am gonna need you to order…”

The young man in the dark suit behind the counter abruptly silenced Jack with an upraised palm.  Jack broke off and stared at his lover, taken somewhat off guard by Ianto’s interruption, and watched as Ianto’ features froze for a moment, and he drew a sharp intake of breath, then a second one.  His eyelids fluttered, dipped, and Ianto sneezed, once, and powerfully.  Ianto sniffed and turned his attention to Jack.

“Sorry.  You were saying..?”

“You…sneezed,” Jack said, somewhat stupidly. 

Ianto blinked.  “I…yes, Jack.” 

“You know, I don’t think I’ve ever seen you sneeze.”

“Don’t be ridiculous.” Ianto chided.  “Of course you have.  You must have.  I have been work for you for nearly a year.  Been sleeping in your bed for months. There was that bought of virrelian flu that went through the whole team back in November.”

Jack pulled a face and said, “No, that was…well, that was not the same thing.  Trust me, I’d have remembered if you’d sneezed like that, before.  THAT was amazing!  Did you know you make a very similar face when we’re…”

“JACK.” Ianto cut the other man off.

“I’m just saying,” Jack said, not apologetically at all, “That was kind of…HOT.” Jack smiled just slightly to himself at the memory. “I think sneezes like that might be one of my kinks.”

Ianto rolled his eyes and laughed.  “Well, then, lucky for you, its allergy season.  I expect I will be sneezing quite a lot over the next few weeks.”

“I didn’t know you were allergic,” Jack said, when he found his voice again.

Ianto shrugged.  “Really, just to this one annoying little flowering shrub.  It blooms for a couple of weeks in Spring, and then just when I think I can’t take it anymore, it goes away.”  Ianto rubbed lightly along the side of his nose, soothing the tickle, watching Jack’s reaction.

Jack licked his lips.  “A couple of weeks?” he asked, weakly.

“Maybe three.”

Jack’s wrist strap beeped.  “Damnit.  I need to get moving.”

“Text me your list?” Ianto called after him.
“Huh?”
“Your list.   Of things you wanted me to order?” Ianto prompted.

Jack’s response was lost as the door to the Tourist Information Center swung shut.  Ianto sneezed again, and thought that just maybe, this allergy season might not be so bad after all.

Oh, there's definitely more to this.  Just...probably should do a bit of research into just where the line is, as far as content ratings.  With Torchwood, polite boundaries are a little hard to maintain, I'm afraid.

Well, I can start with the miracles of modern medicine, and work from there, I suppose.  Funny, I'm not especially into explicit fic, but with Torchwood, it doesn't really seem to matter much, does it?   (You might assume in the long gaps of silence, I am trying to work that out somehow.)

Tuesday

Jack was still in London.   Too bad, really, because the pollen levels must have been through the roof, and even hiding in the depths of the underground Torchwood base, Ianto could feel the insistent tickle in his sinuses.   

He probably should’ve just ordered lunch in.  But, you know, hindsight.  And everyone was keen to try the new Indian place, so Ianto ventured forth to pick up a call in order for lunch.   That was a mistake.  He imagined he could actually  see the offending grains of pollen.  They could certainly see him.

He was sneezing desperately for the umpteenth time when Owen irritably tossed a bottle of pills at him.  Allergy pills that turned out to be surprisingly effective, despite the fact that they made everything taste like tin.

Owen Harper, where have you been all my life, Ianto thought to himself as he breathed freely, sipping tin-flavored coffee, and NOT sneezing his head off.  It was a compromise, but one he could live with for the short term.  

Jack was still in London, anyway.

Definitely true!

I totally suspect this was better-written before my computer crashed and lost this (and every other Torchwood story intro I have).  *sigh*.  Anyway.  Here goes nothin'.

 

Wednesday

Jack was more than happy to be back from London, in the buzz of activity that surrounded the Torchwood 3 Hub, and his team.  Nothing wasted on bureaucratic red tape here.  He watched his team with no small amount of pride.

A few odd riff spikes and a slow Cardiff rain kept them busy early in the day,  but after lunch, things settled a bit.  Ianto appeared in his office, bearing fresh coffee and a stack of documents for him to sign, and settled into a chair across from Jack to wait and sip at his own mug while Jack paged through the papers, and scrawled his looping signature.

“So, London…” Ianto prompted.

“Glad to be home,” Jack shuddered.

Jack signed papers and passed them back across the desk to Ianto, who sorted them into appropriate files.

 “Allergies under control?”  Jack tried not to be obvious.  Maybe.

“Rain keeps the pollen down”.

“Hm.”

 

Thursday

Jack could’ve sworn he’d heard someone stifle a sneeze in the hub, but it couldn’t have been Ianto—he was in the archives.  He drummed his fingers on his desk, remembering that one fantastic sneeze from Monday, wondering when he might catch one of those again.  The anticipation was killing him.

 

Friday

Jack had a rather large and pungent bouquet of flowers on his desk when Ianto arrived with the morning coffee.  They look freshly picked if somewhat clumsily arranged.   

Ianto gave Jack a pointed look, and maybe half a smirk, but didn’t comment on the flowers. 

Jack was hopeful when Ianto returned a short time later to water and arrange the flowers into a more pleasing form, but to Jack's  disappointment, Ianto didn’t so much as sniffle.

After Ianto left, heading down to the tourist office, Jack frowned his annoyance at the bouquet.  He poked through it, irritably,  sniffed at it, and surprised himself by sneezing suddenly at whatever was in those flowers. 

This was just not going at all according to plan.

 

Saturday

The Hub was quiet.  The Rift Monitor was quiet.  Most of the team had taken the day off.  Jack worked intently on a report, until Ianto entered his office and placed a rather large wicker basket on his desk.

“What’s this?” Jack asked, intrigued.

“It’s a picnic basket.” Ianto said, simply, obviously.

“What do we need with a picnic basket?”  Jack was confused.  Ianto rolled his eyes.

“I thought we might actually go on a picnic.”

Jack must have been staring stupidly at Ianto, because when Ianto spoke, it was slowly and with small words.   “You know---outside.   It’s a lovely day out.  The sun is shining, the birds are singing and the flowers are blooming…

Jack’s eyes widened a bit and he wondered if Ianto was proposing what it sounded like he was proposing.

Ianto met his gaze levelly. “…and I haven’t had any allergy medication at all today," he said, rubbing the side of his nose.

Jack swallowed.  "Well then....I'll just get my coat!"

I was wondering when Jack would get back to Cardiff!  :D

Love how you kept him waiting a few days--but of course I can't wait to see what happens next.  (I have terrible spring allergies and know that if I had access to a pill like the one Owen gave Ianto I would have a hard time foregoing it).

Very much looking forward to the next installment,
