When Morgana returned back to hers and Ianto’s flat Jack was gone and Ianto was a blushing mess after the passionate good-bye kiss that Jack gave him, Ianto’s lips still tingled from the feel of Jack’s mouth.
“I take it you had a good talk with Jack?” He could hear the innuendo in her voice.
Ianto crossed his arms and glared at his best friend. “I don’t like you right now,” he informed her.
Morgana gave him her most charming smile. “No you don’t you love me. Now spill I want all the naughty details.”
Ianto knew that there was no way Morgana would give up until he told her, “We kissed and he asked me out on a date.”
Ianto actually had to cover his ears at the happy squeal that escaped Morgana’s mouth. “I take it you are pleased?” he asked with a smirk on his face.
Morgana threw her arms around him in a tight hug as her answer. “I am so very happy for you,” she whispered in Ianto’s ear.
Ianto tighten his grip on Morgana, “Your happy ending is coming I just know it.” Ianto prayed that he was right.
As he returned to the Hub Jack was filled with a sense of peace and belonging he hadn’t felt since his with time with the Doctor, but what scared Jack just a little bit was the fact these feelings were so much stronger with Ianto.
“A date, I actually asked Ianto out on a date.” Giddiness wasn’t an emotion that Jack was used to feeling but he was feeling it now. “I needed to start making plans this date has to be absolutely perfect.” It had been a long time since Jack asked anyone out on a date and he was afraid that he might just blow the best thing that has ever happened to him in his long life.
“Tosh, I’ve got to call Tosh,” Jack declared as a fire lit his blue eyes. He would take Ianto on the greatest date of his life.
The Doctor’s plans to head straight for Earth hit a small snag; since this was Morgause they were dealing with he knew that they would need all the help they could get. “Gwaine, my friend, I hope you are ready for this,” the Doctor murmured under his breath.
“Doctor, where are we going?” Martha spoke up suddenly as she watched the Doctor run around his console.
Turning the Doctor flashed his young Companion a smile. “Martha, how much do you know about the legends of King Arthur and Merlin?” he asked in response.
Martha brow furrowed. “Not much, why is that important?”
Grinning like a loon the Doctor answered her as he pulled a lever, “Because you are about to met Sir Gwaine, royal knight of King Arthur himself.” The Doctor loved the flabbergasted look that appeared on Martha’s pretty face.
At first Tosh hadn’t been all too happy to be called back into the Hub on her night off, that was until she learned why Jack called her in and now she could only smile at how cute a picture Jack made when he was nervous.
Jack looked at Tosh with pleading blue eyes. “So can you help me?”
Tosh’s smile grew as she nodded her head and patted Jack on the arm. “I’ll help you Jack. So what do you have in mind?” Tosh asked, curious as to what her boss had come up with.
“I know I want to take Ianto out for dinner and a movie or maybe we should go dancing,” Jack began to ramble out his plans.
A gentle hand on his mouth stopped Jack in mid ramble and he found himself looking into Tosh’s warm eyes. “Jack, take a deep breath. Dinner and a movie will be fine for a first date,” Tosh told him soothingly.
Doing as she suggested Jack took a deep breath and found himself calming down. He managed to give Tosh a true smile. “I knew I could count on you, Tosh. How is it that no one has laid claim to your heart I will never understand.” Jack murmured with affection as he pulled the young woman he saw as a sister and sometimes as a daughter into his arms.
Tosh shrugged in response as she enjoyed Jack’s hug. “Their all idiots,” she declared with a straight face.
Jack let out a laugh. “They are indeed.”
Tosh looked up at the man who had saved her and gave her a purpose again. “I just haven’t found the right someone to sweep me off my feet, they’re out there somewhere, and I’ll find them when it’s time.”
Jack tighten his grip on Tosh, “Well when you do find the right one and then they have to get my approval first. You are special Tosh and deserve only the best.”
“So do you Jack and I think Ianto is the best for you. In all the time I have known you, I have never seen you look at anyone the way you do with him. I hope you too get a chance at happiness you both deserve,” Tosh told her friend.
‘I hope you are right my dear Toshiko because something tells me that Ianto is the one I have been waiting for,’ Jack thought to himself.
The Doctor was not at all surprised where he managed to track Gwaine down. Shaking his head he entered the bar, glad he told Martha to stay on the TARDIS. “At least some things never change.” The Doctor knew that no matter who he was Gwaine will always be Gwaine.
Ducking past the flying body the Doctor entered the dark looking bar and honestly had no clue where to start looking until a familiar laugh filled the air.
Turning on his heel with a grin on his face the Doctor headed towards the table at in the darker part of the bar. “Hello, Gwaine, long time no see.”
“Lancelot, pull up a chair and have a drink.” Leaning forward the man’s features came into view. “And the name’s John Hart now, so what can I do for you?”
The Doctor turned serious as he informed the other man “Morgause is back.”
A low growl escaped John’s lips. “Tell me everything.”
The next afternoon Ianto once again found himself alone as Morgana left to visit Estelle. Normally he would have loved to go visit the woman with his mother’s soul but he didn’t want to chance missing Jack in case he decided to visit.
And luck was on Ianto’s side as not even an hour after Morgana left there was a knock on the door. Hoping he could keep the silly grin off his face as he moved to open the door and was greeted to the sight of Jack holding a bag of what smelled to be Chinese food.
“Hello, Sir, do come in.” Ianto greeted as he allowed Jack entrance.
Jack frowned at Ianto. “How many times do I have to tell you to call me Jack?” He would be the first to admit he did like it when Ianto called him ‘Sir’ but he liked hearing his name coming from those Welsh vows.
Ianto could see the hurt in Jack’s eyes and hated himself for causing Jack any type of pain. “I’ll try better Jack.”
Jack beamed at Ianto. “Now that is much better. So are you hungry?” he asked holding up the bag of food.
A true smile graced Ianto’s face. “Very and I could use the company,” he admitted, looking at Jack shyly.
That look nearly undid Jack right than and there. “I like keeping you company,” Jack found himself admitting.
Sharing a smile of happiness the two men moved towards Ianto’s kitchen walking close enough to one another that their hands ended up brushing against one another.
Now Morgana did have plans to go visit Estelle; the other woman had an aura that offered comfort about her and that was just what Morgana needed right now. Only she never got that far.
“My Lady Morgana, I must speak with you.” Morgana blinked at the formal tone the man spoke to her.
“Do I know you? You seem familiar?” Morgana asked as she tried to place the man before her.
“I am Rhys Williams or you may know me better as Leon.” Rhys bowed slightly to her.
Morgana could only blink in shock at the man, it had been a long time since Leon had being reborn.
Rhys smiled slightly. It was not often that Morgana was left speechless, but that smile faded as he told her his news. “I bring news that Morgause is closer to Arthur than we may realise.”
“Tell me what you know.” Morgana ordered.
They watched, unseen by anyone. They knew the Dark One had returned. The one born of magic was in danger. They could not allow harm to come to him or his future child.
They protected their chosen ones at all cost.
No one messed with the Mara.
