It had been about two weeks into his suspension when Ianto got his first visitor from work.
A surprisingly timid knock to his door drew Ianto from his book, marking his page; he closed his book and climbed to his feet.
He knew there was no way it could be Morgana, for one she has her own keys and second Morgana is anything but shy and timid. His curiosity was peeked at who could be at his door.
Opening his door Ianto was greeted with someone he did not expect to see.
“Tosh, come in.” Ianto greeted his kindest co-worker, and the one he hoped he could become friends with.
Tosh carried within her the gentleness that reminded him so much of his lost love Freya.
Relief spread through out Tosh body, she had been so worried that Ianto wouldn’t want to see her. For two whole weeks she wanted to talk to Ianto, he was right they really didn’t know anything about him and took him for granted; she wanted to make things right with him, for her own thoughtless treatment of him.
“Can I get you anything, like a coffee?” Ianto offered closing the door behind Tosh.
“Oh no, I couldn’t impose.” Tosh did want Ianto to think she only can to see him for his coffee.
For the first time since she meet Ianto she saw a small but true smile spread across his lips. “Really it is no problem; I just put on a fresh pot.”
“Then that would be wonderful, thank you Ianto.” Tosh accepted, she will admit she was weak when it came to Ianto’s coffee.
“Have a seat; I’ll bring you a cup.” Ianto told her before heading to his kitchen.
Tosh didn’t want to snoop but couldn’t help but cast a glance at all the photo’s Ianto had around his living room.
A few had what like to be Ianto’s family; some had Ianto with a kindly elderly lady, many had Lisa in them, she even spotted some with Gwen’s old partner Andy in them, but most of them had Ianto a beautiful dark haired woman, she was in many of the Lisa ones too.
But what they all had in common was how truly happy Ianto looked in each of them.
“Her name is Morgana, and she is my greatest friend.” Ianto voice spoke up behind her.
Not having heard Ianto coming Tosh felt embarrassed for been caught snooping.
Ianto simply smiled calmly at her, “no need to be embarrassed Tosh, and I can tell you about the people in the pictures if you would like me too?” He offered.
“No, you don’t have to tell me anything you don’t want to tell me. It’s your house after all and these are your memories.” Tosh didn’t want to make Ianto tell her anything he didn’t want to, plus she didn’t want to bring up Lisa if it was still too hard for him to talk about.
“I have lost many loved ones in my life, and I will lose many more.” In that moment Tosh saw that Ianto looked far older than he should.
Walking over to the pictures Ianto picked up one with him in garden with the woman Morgana, Lisa and the kind elderly lady, “how about I tell you about Estelle and her love of fairies?” Ianto asked a loving look entering his eyes as he traced his fingers over Lisa smiling face.
A smile spread across Tosh’s face, “I’d like that.”
“Has anyone seen Tosh?” Gwen called out, noticing the missing tech when she realized she needed help with her computer.
Owen shrugged, “how the hell should I know? It’s not my job to keep track of everyone who works here, that’s a job for our fearless leader.”
“She went to see Ianto.” Jack spoke up before Gwen had a chance to ask him.
“Is that wise?” Jack could only stare at Gwen in surprise at her question.
“And just what is that suppose to mean? Tosh told me that she wanted a chance to talk to Ianto before he returned to work; she said she wanted to make amends with Ianto for how she treated him before. Tosh not only forgives him for what happen with Lisa, but she wants Ianto to be able to call her a friend.” Proudness seeped into Jack voice as he talked about Tosh, he remembered how determined she sound to talk to Ianto with or without his approval.
Jack was not at all surprised that it was Tosh who was reaching out to Ianto first; it was not in her nature to hold a grudge for long. And she understood what it was like to risk everything for someone you love.
Gwen was not quiet convinced; she still remembered how angry Ianto had been with all of them, “but Jack what if Ianto is still angry with Tosh for her role in that things death? What if he tries and hurts her?” Gwen was pleading with Jack, to go and rescue Tosh from Ianto.
Jack could only stare in stun shock over Gwen reaction and somewhat cruel remarks about Ianto.
“Oi, what the hell are you smoking Cooper? I may not be overly fawn of tea-boy, but I know there is no way he would ever harm Tosh. Besides that over grown bird and captain sex over there, Tosh is very special to Ianto.” Owen rolled his eyes at Gwen, “you’re lucky you got looks.” That was Owen parting remark to Gwen.
Gwen stared slack jaw at Owen retreating back, “what was that all about?” she wondered out loud.
“Gwen are you going to be having a problem with Ianto?” Gwen turned to face a stern looking Jack.
“Jack’s it only been two weeks since that thing tried to convert me, you can’t expect me to be okay with Ianto right away.” She pleaded her case to Jack, begging the captain to understand.
“You have one month to start to forgive Ianto, if I remember, you’re treatment of Ianto since you started working here hasn’t been all that friendly, can you remember the last you thanked Ianto for a cup of coffee, or picking up your dry cleaning, or thanking him for doing your paper work?” Jack raised an eyebrow as Gwen blushed.
“I’m not asking you to forgive Ianto right away, but I hired you because you bring a human element to us, and in case you forgot Ianto is human. It might start if you remember that thing as you call it was a beautiful young woman named Lisa, Ianto did what he did for love. If it was Rhys won’t you have done anything to save him?” Jack reminded Gwen before walking away.
If Jack had turned around he would have seen a nasty scowl spread across Gwen’s face and her eyes flicker a different colour.
If he had it would have saved a lot of pain and heartbreak in the future.
Jack found Owen in the medical bay, muttering under his breath. “Thank you for what you said back there, I know Ianto is not one of your favourite people.” Jack told Owen resting a hand on his shoulder.
“Well as much as I hate to admit it, tea-boy and I are a lot alike. I would have done anything to save Katie, even put the whole world at risk. So I understand why tea-boy did what he did.” Owen said.
A grin spread across Jack face, “careful there, it almost sounds like you like Ianto.” He teased his doctor.
Owen scowled at Jack, “remember Harkness I do your physicals and I have access to lots of sharp instruments.” He growled.
Laughing Jack raised his hands in mock surrender.
“What about you, think you’ll ever be able to forgive tea-boy? I’m not blind to how you looked and flirted with him.” Owen reminded his leader.
A imagine flashed before Jack eyes, of the last time he saw Ianto, looking so lost and broken. “I think I can, I need to try, something tells me that Ianto is worth fighting for.” Jack whispered to himself.
Snapping out of his thoughts he grinned at Owen, “Well since you’re actually working, I’ll leave you to it.” Jack bounced out of the room, thinking his whispered confession went unheard by Owen.
Owen stared after Jack watching him leave, “oh you have no idea how important he is to you, young prince.”
Entering the apartment that she shared with Ianto, Morgana was greeted by a sound she had not heard in nearly a year, Ianto laughing.
Shutting the door behind her, Morgana entered the living room a smile appearing on her face as she saw Ianto truly smiling.
Ianto eyes lit up as they landed on her, “Tosh I would like you to meet Morgana. Morgana I would like you to meet Tosh.”
One look into Tosh eyes and Morgana knew that soul, “Freya,” she whispered in disbelief.
