Donna Noble is a force of her own, one that you make sure you are the hell out of her way when she has an idea. It is best for your survival.
So it came to no surprise that once Donna pranced into the hub and made her announcement that she along with Luna and Tosh were taking the day off, the Doctor and Owen were quick to agree.
They were no fools.
Biting her lip Luna wondering if this was the right thing to do, leaving the Doctor and Owen alone. Who knows what trouble those two can get up to left alone with no one around to keep an eye on them?
From the look in Tosh eyes she shares Luna’s worries.
“I don’t know if it wise to leave the hub so unmanned, what if something big comes through? I really don’t want them to have to call in Jack, he and Ianto deserver this time off. I guess I could always call Gwen in.” Luna muttered under her breath, cursing Jack in her mind for making her acting captain.
Owen of course had a problem with that, “oi no way are you leaving me here to suffer Gwen’s whininess of Jack not loving her, alone,” pointing his thumb at the Doctor, “alien boy and I can handle it. If anything we can’t handle comes through we will call you right away.” He was enjoying a Gwen drama free day and was not looking forward to it ending just yet.
The Doctor on the other hand looked quite put out, “oi, I’ll have you remember that I have not only saved the earth but the universe. I can handle one rift, without getting into any trouble”
The Doctor pouted as he noticed Luna and Donna exchanged nervous glances.
Tosh spoke up hesitantly, “well the rift predictor is not showing anything big coming through, and so with the TARDIS I think they should be able to handle everything.”
Luna nodded trusting Tosh’s prediction, “okay but we’ll be back by lunch. I don’t want to take the chance that something does happen and the boys are left out numbered. And I really do not want to disturb Jack and Ianto, and I don’t think that Gwen is ready to come back and play nice. ” She decided, not willing to leave Owen and the Doctor alone in the hub for to long, trying not to picture the destruction those two could cause left alone.
Owen smirked at the blond, “aye, aye captain.” He offered her a salute. Luna sent him a small glare.
“Look at you been all in charge, I never realized how sexy that look was on you.” The Doctor happily informed Luna bouncing on his feet.
The blond star could only stare at her Doctor, a deep blush covering her cheeks.
“Oi do not tell me I’m stuck with another Jack. It’s bad enough dealing with him drooling over tea-boy; I do not need another one.” Owen spoke up, shuttering at the thought of another Jack Harkness in the universe, one was more than enough. Thank you every much.
The Doctor whirled around pointing his finger at Owen snapping off, “I am nothing like Captain Jack Harkness, thank you very much. In fact I honestly don’t think the universe could handle another Jack Harkness….” He trailed off as he realized that Luna and Tosh were both glaring at him.
“Jack may flirt a lot, but you haven’t seen him with Ianto. Jack is completely different if Ianto, he has found something he has been missing for a long time, he has found a place he belongs, he has found home.” Tosh spoke up passionately. She would not let anyone speak ill of Jack, Ianto or their relationship, even if that person was a time lord.
Tosh’s glare darken as she moved in closer to the Doctor, with new found courage she poked the Doctor in the chest and cast a dark glare at Owen as she continued to speak, “Jack is much more than the playboy flirt that everyone sees him as, he has loved and lost more than anyone else ever has, including you Doctor. I could see it in his eyes he was afraid of getting to close to Ianto, because he knew when he lost Ianto it would shatter him more than anyone else. Ianto’s death would destroy Jack. Finally after so many years of pain of watching those he loves, he finally gets the happiness he deserves as does Ianto, a life together. Those two have lost so much. And your wrong, the universe could do with more Jack Harkness and Ianto Jones in it.” By the end of her speech Tosh was vibrating with barely suppressed anger.
Tosh sent another glare at Owen, clearly informing him that, that speech was also meant for him.
Done with the Doctor and Owen, Tosh whirled around and turned to face Luna and Donna, “shall we ladies?” She asked with a sweet smile on her face, but Donna and Luna could see the lingering anger in her eyes.
Surprisingly in the few hours she had gotten to know Tosh, Donna had gotten pretty close to the usually shy tech, but she had seen the fire that exist in Tosh and was thrilled to see her let it lose. Plus the Doctor needs a good scolding once and a while. With a smile Donna linked arms with Tosh, “there are men out there that are in need of been ogled.” The brash redhead added her two cents.
Three sets of eyes watched the two women leave. Sighing Luna turned to face her Doctor and felt her heart clench at the sad look in his eyes. ‘I guess someone should have warned him at how protective Tosh can be over Jack and Ianto.’ She knows that he doesn’t mean half the things that come out of his mouth, but he has the habit of thinking before he specks. He means well but sometimes he can’t help but hurt others with his unthinking words.
Making her way to the Doctor side, Luna pressed a tender kiss against his lips. “I know you didn’t mean to make Tosh angry or hurt anyone’s feelings, but Tosh is very protective over Jack and Ianto and their relationship,” pressing her fingers against his lips, she stopped him from speaking. “Just give her a chance to know you and she’ll see that you meant no harm with your comments about Jack.”
Pulling away from her Doctor she made her way towards the entrance. “Take good care of the hub boys, I want everything still standing when I give control back to Jack.” Luna called over her shoulder before she was gone.
The time lord watched his star go with a sad look in his eyes, ‘I wonder what Luna would think of me if she knew I abandon Jack and called him wrong?’
Two figured lazed about in a rumpled up bed, basking in the glow of morning of amazing, mind blowing sex.
Resting half atop of Jack, Ianto found himself tracing patterns on sweat coated chest beneath him, just enjoying the feeling of Jack skin beneath his finger tips.
“We need to get up and get cleaned up.” Jack chest rumbled under Ianto head as he ran his fingers threw Ianto damp hair. Jack was right but neither could find the will to move and break their embrace.
Careful of his injures Ianto shifted so he could look up at his captain. “We’ll clean up in a bit; I just want to stay here for a few more moments like this with you.” Ianto murmured sleepily, he fought back a yawn as he felt the call of sleep.
Jack couldn’t help but smile at how cute and adorable Ianto looked all sleepily, pride and smugness filled him for him been the reason his star was so tired. Tighten his gripe on the man in his arms; Jack felt that a short nap wouldn’t hurt. “Alright, nap now and shower sex afterwards.” He declared in his captain’s voice.
Even though he should have seen that coming Ianto couldn’t stop himself from rolling his eyes at Jack’s orders. “Yes sir.” Ianto whispered, knowing the effect that word had on Jack.
The immortal could only groan at his lover’s teasing, “You’ll pay for that later.” Jack growled in warning.
Ianto shivered at Jack’s deep growl, he loved it when Jack went all growly on him, and he knows he should stop teasing Jack but he couldn’t resist one last time, “looking forward to it, sir.” Ianto smiled at Jack’s frustrated growl.
“Once you’re rested I will get you back for teasing me.” Jack warned.
Ianto said nothing just smiled and snuggled closer to his captain.
Sleep tugged at the two and no more was said as they drifted off into a well earned nap. Perfectly happy wrapped up in each others arms as right at the moment nothing existed but them.
