It had been a week since Luna’s confusing statement and Jack was still trying to figure out what danger Ianto would be in if he left with the Doctor. He did not like the idea of his mate being in danger.
“Stupid Weevil, messing up my date night with Ianto!” Jack grumbled under his breath as he exited the Hub. He’d sent Ianto home earlier while he finished up some paperwork when the alert came in and now he was late.
Just as he stepped into the open, all the air seemed to leave Jack’s lungs as a very familiar blue box appeared before his eyes. Hope and fear warred within him as the door opened and a man he had only seen in CCTV imagines at Torchwood One stepped out of the TARDIS; it was his Doctor, but at the same time, it was a whole new Doctor.
“Hello, Jack; I think it’s time we had a talk.” The Doctor greeted his former Companion.
Crossing his arms, Jack levelled a glare at the Doctor. “Yeah, I think it’s a little over due, don’t you?” he growled.
The Doctor knew that it was not going to be an easy talk, but he owed it to Jack to tell him the truth, and besides, the TARDIS had made it clear that she wasn’t moving until they talked.
Ianto paced his living room with worry; Jack was late. He had called over an hour ago saying he was leaving the Hub, and once again, worry and fear filled him as his imagination went into overdrive thinking of what could have happened to his immortal mate.
He was in mid-pace when the door opened and Jack entered their flat. “Jack! Thank God you’re alright! I was so worried.” Ianto rushed over to his lover’s side. “Jack?” Ianto asked softly as he noticed a sense of peace in his mate’s eyes that he’d never seen before.
“The Doctor came tonight; he gave me what answers he could. But more than that, he gave me hope.” Jack still couldn’t wrap his head around everything the Doctor had told him.
Ianto cupped Jack’s face. “That’s wonderful, Cariad, what did he tell you?” Ianto asked as he led Jack over to their couch.
“He said that Rose brought me back to life by looking into the heart of the TARDIS. He can’t undo it, but it turns out that the TARDIS is a cheeky thing and made a little tweak in the restoration. Once I find my mate and love them, they can, if they so choose, they can share the vortex that lives in me.” Jack looked up at Ianto with hope in his eyes. “Ianto, you are my life’s mate, and I love you with all that I am, body, heart and soul.”
Ianto almost couldn’t breathe; was Jack saying what he thought he was saying. “Are you telling me that I am immortal like you? Because that’s all I have ever wanted, to be by your side until the very end of time itself.” Ianto was almost afraid to believe it.
Jack reached out and stroked Ianto’s cheek. “Yes, the TARDIS showed it to me. My vortex and your magic have been merging together every time we make love.” Jack explained excitedly.
Ianto couldn’t find the words to explain the pure joy that filled him at the knowledge that he would never have to leave Jack. So he decided to show him the best way possible and he surged forward and kissed Jack with all the love he was feeling at that very moment.
Jack clung to Ianto tearfully as he returned the kiss, deepening it so Ianto could feel his love.
Pulling away, Ianto looked up at Jack with desire-filled eyes. “Please, Jack, take me to bed and make love with me,” Ianto whispered softly.
“Always.” Jack whispered back as he helped Ianto to his feet and led him to their bedroom.
Luna smiled at her boyfriend. “It is time for me to go, Blaise.” She told him.
Blaise blinked at his girlfriend; “Go? Go where?” he asked, confusion lacing his voice.
“It’s time to travel the stars and see what only we can see. I would like for you to come with me.” Luna offered.
A true smile spread across Blaise’s face as he took Luna’s smaller hand in his. “I will go anywhere with you.”
The smile Luna gave him could out-shine any sun, and so grasping his hand, the blond dragged him towards what appeared to be a blue police box. Blaise could see that a handsome yet skinny man was waiting for them; he was actually bouncing on his feet.
A smile lit up his face as the two arrived in front of him. “Luna, I take it you’ve completed your mission?” he asked.
Luna nodded, “Ianto Black-Lupin and Jack Harkness have found their way to one another and Ianto will be expecting their first child after tonight.”
The Doctor smiled. “Good, well time to go, then! Is your friend coming with us?”
Luna nodded, “Yes, he is, Great-Granddad. He is my Companion.”
Blaise looked between the two with confusion in his dark eyes. “Luna, what’s going on? Who is this?”
Luna smiled at her boyfriend. “I was sent here to set right the wrongs that veered the timelines off their proper course. Gwen Cooper was never meant to join Torchwood; Jack and Ianto were always meant to become the happy couple we see today. But first, Great-Granddad, don’t you owe Jack an explanation?” Luna reminded him, crossing her arms and looking at him sternly.
A smile spread across the Doctor’s face. “I already did before coming to get you; he’s at home with Ianto.”
Happy with his response, Luna turned back to Blaise. “So, will you come with me?” She asked again, hope shining in her blue eyes.
Blaise smiled. “I may not have a clue as to what is going on, but I will go anywhere with you.” He kissed his girlfriend.
The Doctor smiled as he saw Susan shining through his great-granddaughter.
Curled up together in sated bliss, Jack lazily ran a hand up and down Ianto’s back as he watched his young mate sleeping peacefully. He had waited so long for answers from the Doctor and had found something even better, a home and a family with Ianto and the others. Jack didn’t know what the future held for them, but knew he could make through anything with Ianto by his side.
