A content sigh escaped Jack’s lips as he gazed down at Ianto who was cuddled against his side, Jack could feel Ianto’s hot breath tickling his neck, which for now, bore the Welshman’s marks. Ianto had made his claim clear for everyone to see and Jack rather liked the idea of belonging to Ianto.
Ianto could feel how relaxed Jack was and it filled his heart with happiness to know he was the reason Jack was happy. “Don’t take this the wrong way, but shouldn’t you be getting back to the Hub?” Ianto didn’t want to rush Jack off but the only ones he truly trusted not to wreck the Hub was Tosh and Jack, and Jack was the only one who could keep Owen and Gwen in line.
A childish pout crossed Jack’s face as he tightened his grip on Ianto, earning a small ‘oof’ from the other man. “But I don’t want to go back to work,” the immortal whined. “I want to stay right here with you.”
Ianto’s eye roll was softened by the smile he wore. “I don’t want you to leave either but do you really trust Owen and Gwen not to destroy the world without someone in command?”
Jack hated to admit that Ianto did have a point. The only one he trusted not to destroy the Hub - well besides Ianto, he was not going to bring up the Cyber thing - was Tosh. A defeated sigh escaped Jack as he released Ianto. “Fine, I better get back,” he muttered under his breath as he climbed to his feet.
Before he could move far away Ianto grabbed a hold of Jack’s wrist. “Go save the world and I’ll let you take me out for dinner tonight.”
A bark of laughter filled the air as Jack bent down to brush a tender kiss across Ianto’s delicious mouth. “You, Mister Jones, are hard work.”
Ianto’s eyes sparkled with delight. “But I am so worth it.”
Jack gaze filled with pure fondness. “That you are Ianto, that you are.”
After seeing Jack to the door and a after a rather length good-bye kiss Ianto wandered back into his flat wondering where Morgana was. A familiar jingle filled the air, alerting him to the fact he had a text and what he saw filled him with dread and hope.
‘Gone to see Alistair. The knights are awakening!’
The knights were reborn but their souls only awakened when Arthur would need them. Ianto knew the last time Arthur and his knights were gathered was during the last World War. “Why now? What’s coming that would cause all of them to awake?”
Rhys found himself hanging on for dear life as Morgana tore down the streets. “My lady, you do know how to drive, don’t you?” he asked as his grip tightening on the dashboard as Morgana swung the car around the corner and barely missed the sidewalk.
“Of course I do! I learnt years ago, back when automobiles were first introduced. It’s not my fault other people don’t know how to drive!” Morgana told Rhys as she swung in and out of the two lanes.
Rhys had not missed the tight grip Morgana had on the steering wheel. Ever since she had announced they were going to see the Great Dragon she had been on edge. Whatever she knew it wasn’t good. ‘I just hope I live long enough to find out what has gotten Lady Morgana so worked up,’ Rhys prayed as horns honked and tires screeched around them. His life flashed before his eyes as the oncoming truck barely avoided crashing into them head on.
Martha Jones had no idea what to think of John Hart. He was the complete opposite of the Doctor and she would admit that it raised her spirits as he flirted with her. It was a nice change from the Doctor completely ignoring her. Oh, she knew that there was no chance of her crush ever been returned, but still for a Time Lord he was rather blind when it came to women and their feelings.
John was amused to see that the Doctor didn’t even notice Martha’s rather obvious crush on him. Of, course with the pure force that was Morgana waiting for him, the Doctor knew better than to stir her wrath; she was a force to be reckoned with. ‘I just hope that Martha gets over her crush before she gets her heartbroken. Of course I would be more than willing to comfort her,’ John thought with a leer.
“Stop leering at my Companion and give me a hand in steering my ship,” the Doctor ordered from his spot at the controls, wondering just where his ship was taking them.
Jack was on cloud nine as he returned to the Hub after his picnic date with Ianto. Okay, so he hated having to leave his Welshman so soon but he was needed back at Torchwood and he didn’t wanted to rush what was between them; still that didn’t mean he didn’t want to dance in the streets. “Ianto Jones you are making me act like a fool.”
The moment those words left his mouth Jack stumbled as a vision or something flashed before his eyes.
A handsome blond man shook his head with fondness at the grinning dark hair man. “Really Merlin you are the most hopeless servant I have ever had. Why do I put up with you?”
The man named Merlin leaned in closer to the blond. “Because you love me and would be lost without me, sire,” he reminded him.
A thoughtful look appeared on the man’s face. “I guess that is a good reason. But really Merlin you are hopeless.” A teasing smile spread across the blond’s face.
Merlin merely rolled his eyes as he pulled the other man into a kiss.
Jack shook his head as the images faded. “Clearly I ate something bad.” Yet Jack couldn’t shake the feeling that it was more than that.
As soon as the TARDIS landed the doors were flung open and the Doctor gazed at the scene in front of him. “New Earth? Why on earth are we on New Earth? I want Earth, Earth,” the Time Lord grumbled but as usual his ship was silent. That caused a pout to spread across the Doctor’s face; he hated it when the TARDIS kept things from him and did her own thing.
John and Martha stepped out to join him. “There has to be a reason she brought us here. I wonder why?” Martha murmured under her breath.
Before either the Doctor or John could respond to her thought a familiar tingle went up and down their spines. There was old magic in the air.
Wise and ancient eyes widened as he felt the presences of two souls he had not seen in some time. “I wish I could warn you all of what’s to come but it’s not my place, but I could give a warning,” Boe whispered with a weary smile. He was so very tired.
Ianto let out a soft sigh; he missed Jack but was grateful the man left. It was so hard being around the man he loved and not being able to act on those feelings because Jack had yet to remember them. “Give me a sign; by now Arthur’s soul should begin to awaken.” Upon their first meeting Arthur’s soul should have begun to awaken. They were so entwined that their souls recognised each other with ease.
Ianto fell back onto his couch with a sigh. “Of course Arthur has never been an immortal before. That could be why his soul isn’t waking. But it’s not all bad; I’m enjoying Jack’s way of courting me,” Ianto had to admit with a soft smile. It was just he missed his Royal prat so damn much.
The sound of screeching tires and several horns blaring brought a smile to Alistair’s face. “It seems Morgana has yet to learn to drive like everyone else.” The Great Dragon remembered his first and only car ride with the immortal woman; it was an experience he would not soon repeat.
Magic filled the air alerting him to Morgana’s arrival… and another. Alistair was not surprised to feel another old soul with her. He was also not surprised when Morgana didn’t bother to knock and just entered his sitting room with a shaking and pale man, more than likely Rhys, stumbling in after her. “Lady Morgana, it will do us no good if you kill the knights with your driving before then can help.”
Morgana simply waved her hand in the air as she pranced to the nearby couch, pulling the shaking man along with her. Rhys was grateful to once again be on solid ground.
Alistair offered a gentle smile to the man. “Hello, Leon, it’s good to see you again.”
Rhys shifted nervously. It was not everyday that a he was in the presence of someone so great. “Hello sir, it’s nice to meet you.”
A laugh escaped Alistair’s lips. “There’s no reason to be nervous young man, I don’t bite.”
“Yes, you should be more worried about my bite,” Morgana teased Rhys with a wink.
Alistair watched them with a fond smile. He was pleased that so many of those closest to Ianto and Morgana had been reborn but at the same time it worried him greatly. “The Knights of Camelot will ride with their King once again to battle foes old and new.”
Both Morgana’s and Rhys’ heads shot up to look at him. “What does that mean?” Rhys asked softly.
Alistair met both their gazes head on. “Not since the last Great War have the knights awakened. You are just the first; two more shall soon join you and then the rest shall begin to awaken.”
Morgana shifted in her seat, concern filling her. “Does that mean Arthur’s soul will soon awaken in Jack? And what does this mean for that child that was to be born between Merlin and Arthur?”
A purely sorrowful look entered Alistair’s eyes. “I fear there is much pain and suffering to come, Jack will suffer greatly as will Ianto. A year of pain will come and only after they have faced and endured that challenge will the child be conceived. But be warned: that will be when Morgause makes her move. Ianto cannot fight her until he carries his and Jack’s child. A child of Magic and Time, he will become the hope and voice to many,” he warned them.
“Hello Boe,” a voice he hadn’t heard in ages washed over him.
Blinking his large eyes Boe felt the corners of his mouth turn up into a smile. “Hello, Aunt Morgana.”
Morgana moved closer to the face in the jar. “Your father and tad will soon be here.” A knowing sigh escaped her lips. “Your tad wore red and you know how your father gets.”
A laugh escaped Boe; it was nice to know that his parents never truly changed.
Morgana allowed a smile to grace her face; it was good to see him laugh. “Your time is almost up. Boe, the first child of Magic and Time, you are finally reaching your end; the first child of Avalon and Time, you are coming home.”
Boe felt happiness fill him. Soon he would be home with his loved ones once he gave the Doctor his message.
Golden eyes watched from the shadows as she saw the old man seek Utopia. “Soon, you will awaken and the blades and blood will fly.” She fought back a cruel laugh as once again the man heard the echoing sounds of drums.
