Chapter 29


Moments before,


Thanks to his now working teleported Jack and Ianto managed to appear in the now empty TARDIS.


“You and I are going to have a very long talk about stealing our children.” Jack informed the TARDIS as he crossed his arms.


“They were needed.” The TARDIS reminded him.


Ianto rested a comforting hand on his mate arm. “We understand that but we nearly lost Isabella and James nearly had blood on his hands.”


“Plus Bell kissed this Doctor! It is bad enough she and her Doctor are all over one another, I have come to accept that but this was too much, at least her Doctor is much more responsible.” Yep, Jack was still the over protective father.


Ianto gave Jack a fond look. “Jack, I think we have more important things to do like collection our children and returning to our on time before we are spotted.” Ianto reminded his husband.


Jack pouted, “But I wanted to have a threesome with your younger self, it would be my greatest fantasy come true.”


Ianto’s eyebrow raised high as he gave Jack a look, “And take the risks of having your younger self happily remove your manhood for daring to touch younger me, then go ahead.”


Jack’s pout only grew knowing how possessive he, any version of himself, was of Ianto.


Ianto rolled his eyes before pulling Jack into a soft kiss that erased Jack’s pout as the immortal immediately deepened the kiss, but as hands began to wonder Ianto, sadly had to break the kiss and Jack’s pout returned in full force. “Sorry Jack but collecting our twins and getting home comes first then slow love making.” Ianto reminded his husband.


“Fine let’s go get our twins. Oh I can’t wait to see the look on their faces.” Jack was practically bouncing in his spot.


Ianto shook his head fondly as he left the TARIDS trusting his husband to follow him.


Now Jack knows he should stay with his husband but as he caught sight of newly-winged Ianto, well he couldn’t resist it is Ianto after all.


“Damn, my past self is going to kill me but I can never resist you in any form.” That was the only warning he gave before pulling the younger Ianto into his arms and kissed within an inch of his life.



”Damn it where is fairy-boy with our coffee.” Owen demanded to know, everyone had been a little-okay a lot- shocked that Owen was alive when the Medic pulled Diane into a toe curling kiss and then proceeded to order Ianto to make him some coffee and received a dark glare from Gaia.


The Doctor, Donna and Martha were busy catching up with Jenny, it sent Jack’s mind reeling to know his daughter would end up with the Doctor and his son would end up with the Doctor’s daughter.  ‘It’s kind of freaky when you think about it.’ Jack thought to himself.


“Hello children.” A very familiar Welsh tone called for the doorway.


James and Bell’s heads shot up and a smile light both of their faces. “Tad!” The twins cried as one before rushing over to their father.


Jack blinked as he was greeted to the sight of another Ianto, and this one was wearing the cute suit and he couldn’t and did not want to stop the leer that crossed his face or the thoughts that dominated his mind, one word threesome.


This Ianto levelled Jack with a very familiar look, “No.”


Jack pouted, “But why not?”


Bell giggled and James rolled his eyes as Ianto answered, “There is no way you would share your Ianto so what makes you think my Jack would share me?”


Jack had to admit that this Ianto did have a point. “I don’t care who he is if anyone tried anything with my Ianto I would rip them apart.” Jack growled low in his throat.


It was Bell who finally noticed that her tad was alone. “Um, Tad where is Dad?” She asked.


Ianto’s eyes went wide, “He wouldn’t.”


Jack’s eyes narrowed. “Oh I would.” Snarling he pushed back his chair and marched from the room as a man on a mission to find and kill his older self for daring to kiss his Ianto.



Ianto blinked as the man who looked like his Jack, but clearly wasn’t continued to kiss him. He regained his senses and was about to push the other man away when a very familiar gun cocking broke the moment.


“I don’t care if you’re me; get your hands off my Ianto!” This time Jack growled as he pointed his gun at well himself. Jack couldn’t stop himself from bristling at the sight of his future self kissing his Ianto.




Older Jack pulled away from the Ianto in his arms and cheerfully waved to himself who was glaring at him and the others, before turning to his Ianto and smiling happily at him, “Hi sweetheart, hey kids.” He bounced over to his Ianto and pulled his husband into his arms.


Ianto Harkness-Jones sighed; as he snuggled into Jack’s arms, he should have known his husband would pull this stunt.


Ianto blinked at the sight of his twin before a squeak escaped his mouth as his Jack pulled him into a deep kiss.


Jack growled deep into the kiss, he needed to erase the taste of the other Jack from Ianto’s mouth, only he is allowed to kiss Ianto.


Owen groaned as he caught sight of the Captain snogging the life out of his Tea-Boy, “Are we going to get coffee sometime this bloody year?” The now undead medic snarled out.


Jack pulled away long enough from Ianto’s very tempting mouth long enough to send Owen a withering glare and snap off a, “Not now Owen,” before Jack’s mouth reclaimed Ianto’s mouth.


A chuckle escaped John’s mouth as he wrapped his arms around Tosh. “I suggest we give these two love birds some alone time, Jack is very possessive over what he considers his and given the way he feels about eye-candy and all that had happen today I do believe we are minutes away from a free show as Jack seeks to prove Ianto is not only alive and safe but his and his alone.”


Gaia raised an eyebrow as the smell of desire, love and a slight hint of fear reached her. “I do believe Mister Hart is right and I for one do not wish to see my son and his chosen one mate.” With that said the Spirit of the Earth turned on her heel and exited the group.


Future Jack gave his husband a smouldering look. “Can we stay and watch?” He asked while nipping at his Ianto’s neck.


“No Jack, we need to be get going home. I know a certain Time Lord was done waiting.” Ianto directed the last part at Bell and smiled as his daughter’s face lit up.


Jenny shot her best friend and soon to be future step-mom and sister-in-law, ‘Yeah, that never sounds weird,’ a smile. “Dad was going insane when you got caught in the explosion.”


Bell turned to her father and delivered the look he could never say no to. “Please dad, can we go home now?” Bell pleaded.


That managed to reach Jack’s lust filled mind and he pulled away from Ianto allowing the both of them to take the moment to catch their breaths, “You’re leaving?” He asked them softly.


James nodded as he reached out and took Jenny’s hand. “We can here for a reason and we had a role to play and now that it is over it is time for us to go home,” He then favoured his to be parents a wicked smile, “Besides in the coming months you’ll be too busy to miss us.”


Bell shook her head at her brother before moving to embrace the younger version of her parents. “I love you both so very much.” She told them with tears in her eyes.


Jack pressed a kiss to her forehead. “We love you too, sweetheart.” Jack told her.


Bell backed away and let James have a chance to hug them. “It was fun dad, tad.”


Ianto shook his head fondly at his future son. “Indeed it was, but please try and stay out of trouble.”


James, Bell, the other Jack and other Ianto all snorted as James shot his tad a mischievous smile, “Can’t promise anything.”


The Doctor looked at the Jack he did not know, “Can I offer you all a lift?” He asked them.


Future Jack narrowed his eyes as he looked at his old friend, still not at all pleased that this version of the Doctor kissed his precious Bell, even if it was Bell who in fact kissed the Doctor. “On one condition, you keep far away from my daughter.”


The Doctor squawked and actually feared for his future self. “She kissed me, not the other way around.” He was quick to point out.


Bell rolled her eyes. “Dad, it was just to distract you all, not that I didn’t enjoy it, you kiss pretty well for such a skinny boy.” Bell then to her father’s horror sent the Doctor a wink.


The Doctor actually gulped as both Jack’s furious gaze landed on him. “Alright everybody who needs a ride into the TARDIS,” The Doctor then turned to Jack, Ianto, Martha and Mickey, “Lovely to see you all, next time let’s do lunch.” Then the Doctor high tailed it to his TARDIS.


Donna watched him go a fond smile on her lips at his actions.


“You’re going with him.” Rhys stated rather than asked.


Tears in her eyes Donna meet Rhys own tearful eyes. “He needs me, he won’t admit it but he is lonely.” Donna explained. “And I need him. Right now in this time and place, my place is with him.”


Rhys nodded his head. “And I need time to get over Gwen, despite everything she has done I do still have feelings for her. And I think that you and I could have something special, but I don’t want you to be a rebound relationship.” Rhys admitted to her honestly.


Donna smiled a teary one and pulled Rhys into a kiss full of promise. “I’m holding you to that.” She informed him when they parted.


Donna then did the hardest thing she has ever done and walked away from Rhys.


Future Jack gave this Jack and Ianto a charming smile. “Jack take good care of Ianto and Ianto keep an eye on him, you sexy thing you.” Jack winked at Ianto.


As they moved towards the TARDIS, Bell stood and levelled her future parents a dark look, “Just one thing, never ever buy me or paint my room pink. I hate pink.” Bell warned before smiling and bouncing into the TARDIS with the rest of her family. The TARDIS door shut and suddenly the Hub seemed so much quieter.


A split second after the TARDIS doors closed they reopened and James stuck his head out. “Oh by the way dad and tad, it going to be twins, congratulations,” he cheerful informed the Torchwood team, before he disappeared back into the TARDIS.


A moment of stun silence filled the hub before a groan broke it.


“Bloody hell, thank god I can get drunk again, there is no way I could deal with a hormonal Jack, sober.” Owen declared.


No one saw the smirk that drifted across Gaia’s lips, ‘It would seem my son has not yet informed his mate of one important detail of the bonding ceremony.’  It would be interesting to see how Jack and the others deal with a pregnant Prince of the Earth. “My son, I must take my leave of you I have been in the mortal world for far too long.” Gaia moved to embrace her son and his Jack.


Ianto hugged his mother tightly. “It was good to see you again mother.”


Gaia moved back and levelled an imposing look on them. “In one month the moon will be its fullest and your bonding ceremony will take place.” Her voice left no room for argument.


In fact to Jack one month seemed like forever to wait to call Ianto his.


Gaia nodded to those she entrusted her son safety to before disappearing in a whirlwind of flowers.


Jack turned to his team. “Take the day off.” Jack ordered he needed to reassure himself that Ianto was okay, it had been to close.


“No arguments from me, I can eat and drink let’s get moving.” Owen snapped off as he snagged Diane’s wrist and headed for the exited.


The others shook their heads and followed leaving Jack and Ianto alone. Jack cupped Ianto’s face with his hands and kissed him with every bit of love he had for his beautiful Ianto.


Ianto returned the kiss pouring every once of love he held for Jack.



It was the longest five minutes of Bell’s life as she heard the familiar sounds of the TARDIS, her heart did a little jig it was her Doctor.


“DOCTOR!” Bell’s happy cry echoed through the hub as she flew across the Hub, slamming into the newly arrived handsome man in a steamy kiss.


The Doctor held Bell close as he returned her kiss with equal passion and need. His hearts began beating again as he held a very alive Bell in his arms. “Next week is the full moon, I want to hold our bonding ceremony then, I don’t want to wait any longer.” The Doctor whispered against her lips.


Pure happiness filled Bell. “Me neither.” She felt tears of joy fall from her eyes and was very grateful that her dad had dragged her tad home and they would be lucky to see them in a few days.



Every kiss was gentle,


Every touch was tender,


Every movement was slow and tender,


Jack relished in every cry that fell from Ianto’s lips, the feel of Ianto in his arms as he proved to himself that today he did not lose this gorgeous man and that he would never lose him.


Ianto clung to Jack, lost in the tender way his mate made love to him, he understood Jack’s fear. “I’m here Jack and I am never leaving you alone, I promise.” Ianto whispered plead filled the room.


A sob tore free from Jack’s throat before kissing Ianto deeply sealing the promise between them.

OMG! So, if I'm reading Gaia right, Ianto is the one who carries the twins?

I love this story. It is one of my favorites. Could you do a sequel or an epilogue covering the pregnancy?
