Chapter 4

Use to this type of greeting between the two immortals, Duncan, Amanda and Joe gather their belongings knowing they needed to get out of here before Methos and Ifan forgot they were in public and started losing clothing.

They didn’t need those two arrested for public nudity, again.

Knowing just how to get Methos moving Amanda slunk in closer to them. “You do realize everyone is staring at your Ianto.” She whispered into Methos ear, knowing how possessive he is over Ifan there is no way he would let anyone see a hint of Ianto flesh, let alone naked.

That was all it took for Methos to react, Ianto naked body was for his eyes only.

Pulling away from that tempting mouth, Methos fought back a groan at the lust and love that darken those eyes. It didn’t help that his beloved after so long together was still able to blush, which only made it all the hard to resist him. It took all of his willpower not to make love to Ianto right then and there.

Sensing that Methos wanted him in the nearest bed as soon as possible Ianto decide the faster he can get them to his house the better. “When is Thalia plane due?” He asked Amanda figuring she would know.

Amanda smiled, “later tomorrow morning.” She told him. “Sean is with her.” She added just to see if this would get a reaction out of the level head immortal.

Ianto raised an eyebrow not all surprised that his daughter and Sean ended up together, he had seen their romance blooming between his daughter and his friend for years, but he wasn’t going to point that out to Methos, his partner was furiously protective over their daughter.

“If you have everything then we can get going.” Ianto told the others while slipping his hand into Methos.

A nod from the others had Ianto leading them out of the airport to where his car was waiting.


Rubbing her temples to try and ward off the oncoming headache Tosh was really beginning to wish she left when Ianto did. Finally she could take no more, “Gwen will you just shut up for one moment.” Tosh snapped out.

Gwen stared open mouth at Tosh, not able to believe that she snapped at her. “But Tosh, Ianto gave no warning that he was leaving early and I promised Rhys I would be home tonight. I can’t believe how selfish he is been.” Gwen pouted.

“The only one I see been selfish is you. Ianto has worked harder than anyone since Jack left us and if anyone deserves a night off it is Ianto. You left early all week to go home to Rhys surely he will understand been late one night?” Tosh asked, only to raise an eyebrow at the guilt look she shot at Owen and Tosh felt her heart break a little more.

“You don’t understand Tosh, you don’t have anyone outside of here, but I do. I have a life away from Torchwood, one that I don’t wish to lose.” Gwen told Tosh.

A cold look entered Tosh eyes. “Or the truth is the reason you need to go home tonight to be with Rhys is because it wasn’t Rhys with who you were sharing a bed with this past week.”

“How dare you. I love Rhys.” Gwen snapped back at Tosh.

Tosh crossed her arms and glared at Gwen, “really, your so in love with Rhys that you throw yourself at Jack and sleep with Owen. How could anyone doubt your love for Rhys?” Her voice was laced with sarcasm.

Turning to her computer she saved and closed all programs she was working on and shut down her computer, marching past Gwen and Owen Tosh only stopped to grab her coat.

“And just where do you think you are going?” Gwen demanded.

Looking over her shoulder Tosh gave Gwen a cool look. “Home, I’m going to be taking an early night.” That was her parting remark, leaving Gwen and Owen to stare at her retreating form, one in shock and a little awe, the other seething in anger.


The door to Ianto bedroom slammed close with a bang not that either Methos or Ianto really cared, they were too focused on one another. It had been far too long since they last made love.

They kissed long and deep, relearning each others taste and mouths. Hands roamed above and underneath cloths enjoying the feel of skin beneath their finger tips.

Without breaking their kiss and without losing contact between their bodies, they manage to find their way to Ianto bed.

Breaking the kiss Methos looked down at Ianto and took in his kissed lips and eyes darken with lust and passion. “I have missed you some much Ifan. And I don’t plan on letting you go anytime soon.” Methos purred stroking Ianto cheek.

Ianto leaned into the gentle touch, having missed his love touch so much. “I missed you too Methos, so very much.” Ianto whispered reaching out to stroke Methos cheek.

Their lips re-meet as in a love filled kiss as they set out to prove to each other just how much they missed one another.


Amanda was thrilled that Methos and Ianto were back together, she was just wishing she stayed at a hotel. ‘At least, their room is on the second floor and on the other side of the house.’ Amanda thought with a grin.

A knock on the door pulled Duncan away from his book, putting down the book he moved to answer the door.

Opening it, Duncan felt his breath catch as he met a pair of warm dark eyes that were slightly red from crying.

Tosh felt her mouth grow dry as she stared at one of the handsome men she has ever met. ‘Please don’t let this be Ianto’s Adam.’ Tosh found herself praying.

“Hello, I’m Duncan, how can I help you miss?” Duncan asked.

Tosh found herself melting at the sexy accent of his. “I’m Tosh and I’m looking for Ianto, is he here?” She asked.

‘So this is Tosh, Ianto does speak highly of her.’ Out of everyone of Torchwood, Tosh was the one Ianto seemed to adore must, ‘well beside that Captain Jack Harkness.’ Methos didn’t seem too happy with the fondness and sadness in Ianto voice as he spoke of this Jack.

Duncan smiled at her. “I’m afraid that Ianto is rather busy right now, but I’m sure he wouldn’t mind if you waited inside.” He offered hoping to get to know Ianto’s best friend.

Smiling shyly, Tosh tucked a piece of hair behind her ear. “If it is okay, I don’t want to be a bother.” She wouldn’t mind getting to know this handsome man in front of her.

“I’m sure it is no problem. Ianto house is always open to his friends.” Duncan reassured her.

“Okay,” Tosh agreed stepping into the house.

Amanda wondering what was taking Duncan so long wondered into the front hall where she raised an eyebrow and smiled at Duncan in a conversation with a beautiful woman.

Backing away quietly she quietly returned to the den, where Joe raised an eyebrow at the look on her face. “I know that look, what are you planning and how much is it worth?” He asked.

Amanda adopted a completely innocent look. “Why Joe I’m hurt, that you could think such a thing about me?” She pouted.

Joe merely gave her a look that said he wasn’t buying it.

“How would you like to play match maker?” Amanda asked with a wicked grin.
