One week later
Standing at the entrance to the living room, Jack carefully studied everyone in it. Clint had snagged the giant chair, pulling Coulson down beside him and then Pepper onto his lap; she settled down happily with her feet resting in Coulson's lap. Owen and Martha were seated side-by-side on the floor going through the movie choices. Maria had a long-suffering look on her face as she stood over them, listening to her two lovers squabble over which version of 'King Kong' was the better one and therefore worthy of being watched on family movie night.
Tosh, Darcy and Natasha were curled up together in the love seat; Tosh was talking excitedly about something scientific with Bruce, who was seated on the floor between Thor and Jane. Tony was on the floor in front of the girls' couch where he could easily take part in the conversation, while Steve and Ianto were seated on the decidedly over-sized couch that Tony had bought once the four men had finally gotten together. Ianto, still sporting a plaster cast on his wrist, was cradled gently against Steve's side, as the young Welshman wasn't fully healed yet. Truth be told, he could not wait to finally get back on his feet; having his lovers wait on him hand and foot was driving Ianto absolutely insane! He absolutely yearned for the day when he could spend some time completely and happily alone; he wasn't even allowed to take a bath by himself, 'just in case you were to fall asleep and slip under the water.'
With a warm smile on his face, Jack stood watching and listening to the ebb and flow of conversation in the room. 'This is my family now.' Emotions clogged his throat as he realised 'I finally have a home.' For so long Jack had been waiting for the Doctor to arrive and fix him that he hadn't bother to put down any roots or create any real and lasting connections with anyone.
Well, that wasn't necessarily true; he had tried once or twice but not very hard. "And then along came Ianto, a shy, quiet young Welshman who broke through all my walls and opened up my heart again," he whispered to himself as he feasted his eyes on how happy Ianto was. And while he had come to love Steve and Tony very much Jack knew that Ianto who would hold the biggest piece of his heart for the rest of his very mortal life.
As if sensing Jack's eyes on him, Ianto lifted his head and met Jack's gaze with a shy, sweet smile on his face and once again, Jack was blown away by the pure, unconditional love shining in those blue eyes he loved so very, very much.
Ianto held out his hand to Jack. "Come and join us, Cariad, we saved you a spot."
Not needing to be told twice, Jack pushed off from against the wall and moved towards Ianto and once he was close enough he took Ianto's offered hand. As Ianto's hand wrapped around his Jack felt a burst of warmth and belonging fill him to the core and one pure, undeniable truth hit him, 'Home is wherever Ianto is, and now that home includes Steve and Tony and I wouldn't change a thing.'
