Chapter 22


The following morning Ianto was enjoying a sight that many didn’t get to see, Jack cooking.


Yep, Jack Harkness was a brilliant cook, but the immortal couldn’t make a decent cup of coffee to save his life, though.


Ianto shivered as he remembered the first and only time Jack tempted to make him a cup of coffee. Ianto had banned Jack from ever touching his machine again, punishment to do so was no sex for a week. Jack was all too quick to agree to leave the coffee making to Ianto.


Leaning over Ianto caught Jack’s lips in a soft kiss. Pulling away Ianto couldn’t help but smile at the confused/happy look in his fiancé eyes. Ianto felt a shiver of delight spread throughout his body at calling Jack his fiancé.


“What was that for? Not that I am complaining.” Jack asked softly.


Ianto smiled as he explained. “Because you’re, you,”


Jack felt happiness exploded in his heart at Ianto’s simple statement, no one had every said anything that sweet or that meaningful to him before, well no one who knew the real man beneath the dashing hero façade.


Jack was just about to respond when a soft yawn alerted them that they were no longer alone. Turning the two were greeted to the sight of Bell sleepily rubbing her eyes in away that reminded Jack of Ianto when he first woke up, it was extremely adorable in Jack’s eyes.


“Good morning Bell.” Ianto greeted the young woman.


Bell gave a sleepily smile. “Good morning dad, tad. I smelt daddy’s cooking.” She said as she walked over to the two and gave them each a kiss on the cheek.


Jack beamed at his adorable daughter. “Good morning sweetheart, breakfast will be ready soon, why don’t you go wake up your bother.” Jack suggested.


Nodding her head Bell turned to leave after making a quick stop to grab a glass of ice water, noticing her parents look she explained. “James doesn’t do mornings and this is the only way to wake him up.”


Jack and Ianto watched her go before Jack turned to Ianto. “Remind me to keep the Doctor away from her. She is too good for him and far too young for him.” Jack growled.


Ianto wondered if it was wrong that he found overprotective daddy Jack extremely sexy and he couldn’t wait till he got frustrated and growly Jack in bed.


Jack noticed the look in Ianto’s eyes it was one he and he alone got to see. “You’re thinking something naughty aren’t you?” The immortal questioned as he boxed Ianto in against the counter.


The delightful blush that spread across Ianto’s face was answer enough for Jack and it took all his willpower not to take Ianto right there on their kitchen table.


“What are you thinking about Yan? Tell me what is running through that sexy and dirty mind.” Jack ordered in a dominate tone, one that had Ianto wanting to kneel in submission before Jack.


“You being all growly and overprotective over our daughter in the future, I can already picture how I will help you work off those frustrations.” Ianto whispered in a seductive tone.


Jack groaned, oh his beautiful Welshman always surprised him. “Oh when that day comes I promise you I will make all your fantasies come true, boy.” Jack purred.


Ianto knew Jack could feel his shiver at the term and wanted nothing more than for Jack to take him right here and now.


As if Jack could read Ianto mind he whispered hotly in his ears in a voice made purely of sin, “Do you know how hard it is not to spread you out over this table and devour every inch of your delicious body? To have you scream to the stars that you are mine and mine alone?”


Ianto could only whimper in pure need a sound that drove Jack crazy, unable to stop himself Jack claimed Ianto’s mouth in a kiss of pure need and dominance.


The kiss grew more heated and hands began to roam wanting to remove the barrier that kept them from making love right there on the table.


“DAMN IT BELLA!” The angry roar washed over them like a bucket of ice water.


A loud growled echoed only seconds afterwards. “I TOLD YOU BEFORE NEVER CALL ME BELLA!”


Panting Ianto and Jack manage to pull away from the passion that wanted to consume them both. A low growl escaped Jack’s lips he was really getting tired of his naked time with Ianto been interrupted.


“I’m afraid Jack that this is something you are just going to have to get use to.” Ianto told Jack softly.


Jack pouted before pulling away from his tempting Welshman. “I know but it’s not fair, I don’t get any special Ianto time.” The immortal whined.


Ianto chuckled and kissed Jack fondly on his forehead. “By special Ianto time I take it your talking about our love making?” Ianto felt Jack nodded miserable against him. “Cariad, you are Captain Jack Harkness, nothing will get in the way of you find us time for some special alone time.” Ianto reminded Jack fondly.


That perked Jack right up. “Your right and damn it I have never let anything get in my way of making love to you, except for saving the world.”


A loud crash and the sound of fighting reached their ears. Ianto gave Jack a pointed look.


A look that Jack knew all too well, “Right I’ll go deal with that.” Jack said with a pout and went to deal with their two trouble making twins.


“Oi, knock if off you two, you ruined my naked Ianto time.” Jack growled reached Ianto ears.


“Eww too much information dad.” James and Bell chimed together.


Ianto shook his head a blush staining his checks at Jack reminder of just what they were about to get up to. “Twins plus Jack and those other children at the hub, thank goodness I am going to have Tosh around to help me.” Ianto muttered under his breath.




Tosh woke to warmth against her back and a possessive arm around her waist, it took her a moment for her to remember just what had happen last night and who now shared her bed.


Tosh could fill a panic starting to set in she had no idea what possessed her to sleep with John Hart of all people.


Okay so the sex had been amazing she wasn’t complaining about that.


She just has no clue as to what happens next.


Biting her lip Tosh decided the first step was to get out of bed, no matter how nice it felt to wake up with John’s warmth against her back, she needed to make space between them so she could think. Slowly, she began to pry his arm off her waist.


“And just where do you think you are going?” John’s low voice rumbled in her ear and Tosh only had a moment to blink before she found herself pinned under John’s body.


Looking down into Tosh’s eyes John could see the fear and doubt floating about in them. “I know I am not the most reliable guy to be with, but something about you, Toshiko Sato makes me want to try. So what do you say, let me wine and dine you, let me woo you like you should be.” John asked.


Tosh eyes soften before narrowing. “Even if I said no, you would still try and ‘woo’ me, wouldn’t you?” She questioned knowing that John was too much like Jack to just let her go if she said no.


John smirked like a wolf as he answered her. “Oh you know it babe, just think if we do it my way, there will be many repeats of last night to come.”


“Fine, but I am excepting you to woo me in high fashion.” Tosh warned John.


John lowered his head as he promised her “Oh I will, trust me.” And that was the last thing said for a while as their lips met in a kiss and they lost themselves in each other.




Even though he was dead Owen could still feel the warmth of Diane body against his own.


All night Diane had slept curled up in his arms and all night Owen just watched her sleep for the first time happy that Jack had doomed him to this existence, if he hadn’t Owen would have missed this chance to hold Diane again.


‘Not that I will ever tell Jack this; his ego is already big enough.’ Owen thought to himself.


Owen was content to let Diane sleep a little more; he was not ready to lose her from his arms just yet.




The Doctor will admit he is not used to domestic breakfast but as he watched Donna and Rhys he couldn’t help but enjoy this human ritual.


But the Doctor couldn’t help but worry about Mickey’s warning about Donna, he couldn’t lose the brash redhead from his life; she is without a doubt his best friend, something he hasn’t had in a long time.


And as he watched Donna and Rhys cook together he vowed then and there that he will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.


And that includes a little talk with two trouble making twins.




Leaning on his elbow Jake looked at Mickey. “Do you think we did the right thing in warning the Doctor of what is to come?” He asked his lover.


Mickey could understand Jake’s worries. “We had to; Donna’s future is in danger as is everything. Hopeful the Doctor will make the right choices when the time comes.”




As usual Ianto and Jack were the first to arrive at the Hub along with the twins.


“I hope Tosh is okay, she is usual here by now.” Ianto told Jack with worry as he passed his lover his cup of coffee.


“Mmm,” Jack moaned as he took a long sip of the ambrosia that is known as Ianto’s coffee.


James echoed his father moan of delight.


Ianto simply smiled and shook his head with fondness over those two before glancing over at the pouting Bell.


Bell hands twitched wishing she could have a cup of Ianto’s coffee. Something delicious smelling was placed in front of her. Bell’s eyes widen at the delicious looking hot chocolate placed before her.  


Ianto smiled down at her as he explained. “It didn’t seem fair that everyone got a drink but you. It’s not coffee but I hope it will do.”


Cradling the cup in her hands, Bell took a long whiff of the aroma before taking a long sip, a moan of blissfulness escaped her lips before she looked at her tad with wonderment. “Forget coffee, this is the best hot chocolate ever, you should make this all the time instead.” Bell praised.


James having over heard this did not agree. “Nothing is better than tad’s coffee. You’re just jealous that you don’t get any.” James told his sister smugly.


Bell eyes narrowed. “You’re the one that is jealous that tad made me his famous hot chocolate and not you.” She finished her statement by sticking out her tongue.


James responded in kind by blowing his sister a raspberry.


Jack, who was missing Ianto by his side move towards his Welshman and settled in next to him, with a smile and a kiss Ianto, settled into Jack’s side, and together they watched the twins battle of the raspberries take place.




Martha Jones was less than pleased at being awaken by an earlier morning phone call that was until found out who was calling, to say she had be shocked had be an understatement. She knew the man only by legend at UNIT and from what the Doctor had told her as they travelled together.


Martha couldn’t help but glance at the man who she was sharing the car ride with, it was only natural that she was a little nervous, but then again that was to be except with sharing a car with Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart.


Worry was also another big emotion that Martha was feeling, the fact that a member of Torchwood, of Jack’s team, was using illegal and very dangerous alien tech for their own gain, well anyone would be worried.


“Are you alright?” The unexpected gentleness in his question had Martha blinking.


Somehow Martha managed to smile at the man. “I am fine, I am just hoping we get their before anyone is hurt due to Gwen’s foolishness.” She explained.


The Brigadier eyes harden at the mention of Gwen’s name. “And just what do you know about Miss Cooper?” He asked to know.


A shiver went straight down Martha’s spine and for a brief moment she almost pitted Gwen until she remembered what the TARDIS told them. Martha told the Brigadier all she knew about one Gwen Cooper as they grew closer to Cardiff.
