Blue eyes drank in every inch of his sleeping partner’s face and body. The light glow that engulfed his star made the injures all the more visible to the immortals gaze. Gentle fingers traced over the bruises and cuts that marred his beautiful skin and reminded him just how close he came to losing Ianto due to not only the mission but also his foolishness.
And Jack was thankful to whoever gave him another chance with his Ianto, and this time he was not going to blow it. He barely survived losing Ianto once, he wouldn’t a second time.
A soft mumble and arms tighten around him, made Jack gaze slip back up to Ianto face. Sleep filled blue eyes stared back at him.
“Sorry, Yan, did I wake you?” Jack asked quietly as he brushed a stray lock of hair off of Ianto forehead. Snuggling closer Ianto rested his head on Jack shoulder. “No, I’m use to been up at nights. But what has gotten you thinking so hard?” He murmured grazing his lips across the hollow of Jack throat. Jack knows he can’t lie to Ianto, not after promising to be honest with him and Ianto always knows when he is lying. “I nearly lost you. I’m just thankful for whatever force brought you into my life and made you give me a second chance.” Jack arms tighten slightly around Ianto.
The star shifted so he could look at Jack. “I am not going anywhere. My heart belongs to you and you alone. We have both made mistakes in the past and hurt each other greatly. But we have worked all that and made peace with all that. You maybe a flirt, but I know that I am the one who you come home to. I will admit at this I felt like you were only settling for me,” Ianto quickly pressed his finger against Jack lips when Jack meant to speak, “I know that’s not true, that you love me as much as I love you. We have forever now Jack, please let’s not let past mistakes overshadows us any more.” Ianto pleaded with Jack.
Jack looked deeply into Ianto eyes and could see the love shinning there just as brightly as it was in his own eyes. He truly did not deserve this wonderful man, but that doesn’t mean he is willing to give him up.
Brushing a kiss across Ianto lips he answered him, “We won’t. But just know that I never meant to make you think that you were second best. I kept you at arms length because I think I knew that you were the one that could truly make me feel again. I kept myself cut off from love for so long, then the moment I met you, I knew I wanted you, but that became so much more. I know I’ve said that it was Gwen who made me feel again, who makes me human again, but that’s not true, it is you Ianto. Just remember that the next time I mess up. I’m an old fool who will most likely make mistakes, but I just need you to remember that it is you I love, who makes my heart beat, who gives me a reason to face each new day head on. It’s you and you alone, no one else.” Jack declared laying his feelings bare for Ianto to see.
Reaching up, Ianto buried his fingers into Jack’s hair and pulled his lover head down for a deep consuming kiss, pouring all his emotions that he felt for Jack into that kiss. Letting his actions speak for him.
Pulling away Ianto looked into those blue eyes flush with love and darken with lust. “I love you Jack Harkness.” Ianto whispered.
A smile lit across Jack’s face, as he replied, “I love you too Jones Ianto Jones.” He whispered back, knowing he would never get tired of saying or hearing those three powerful words.
Shifting Ianto till he was almost completely draped over Jack, the immortal wrapped his arms back around his star. A content sigh escaped Ianto lips as he could hear Jack’s heart beating underneath his ear. “How long do you think the Doctor will be staying around?” Ianto asked, almost purring as Jack began to run his fingers through his hair. “For Luna’s sake I hope it’s longer than a few days. When he leaves Luna is going to need our support, isn’t she?” Jack asked, smiling as Ianto leaned into his touch. Ianto nodded sadly. “He doesn’t know how badly she broke down after each visit. It’s hard for a star to be away from the holder of their heart. Maybe we can invite her to stay with us for a few days, just till she can handle his leaving.” Ianto suggested. Jack nodded, “Sounds like a plan. How could Luna miss Doc, with us two handsome men looking after her.” He joked, but Ianto knew how concerned Jack was for Luna.
A yawn escaped Ianto mouth that he tried to muffle. Of course his lover caught it immediately. “You need to sleep love; I don’t want you wearing yourself out.” Jack ordered softly, knowing Ianto needs his rest in order to heal better. Sensing Jack’s worry, Ianto gave into what his body was telling him, he needs sleep. Placing a kiss onto Jack’s chest he snuggled closer, “Night Jack.” Ianto whispered. Jack pressed a kiss onto Ianto hair, “Night Ianto, sleep tight.” Jack whispered fondly watching his star drift off into sleep.
