It was as if all the air had been sucked out of the room after Ianto quite statement.
“You’ve already accepted your going to die, haven’t you?” Luna horrified whisper added another stab to Ianto heart. He couldn’t bare to look into those eyes; with his head lowered he answered “Yes.”
That single word destroyed Luna world. “Ianto, you can’t give up. If you love Jack, fight for him. Tell him how you feel; find out how he feels for you. Don’t just give up.” Luna begged tears falling from her eyes.
Ianto closed his eyes, he couldn’t bare to see her cry and to know it was him who caused her tears was almost too much. “I’m tried Luna, so tried of losing everyone I love. Tried of never been enough for the one I love. With Lisa I couldn’t give my whole heart, with you know you were never my other half, and with Jack just not been the one’s he truly wants.” His eyes finale meets her glassy ones. “I’m sorry Luna. But I’m not strong enough to fight any more. Please understand.”
Luna didn’t answer just reached out and pulled Ianto into a hug. Something warm and wet landed on her skin and she realized that Ianto was crying silently and that was all it took for her tears to come.
Time escaped them as they cried and one sought the comfort that the other offered.
Pulling away from Ianto, Luna wiped the few remain tears from Ianto cheeks. “Come, you need rest. You room is ready for you.” Climbing to her feet she offered Ianto her hand. Ianto larger one engulfed her small one.
Not a word was spoken as Luna led Ianto to his room. Reaching the door she turned to him. “You injures will need a few days to heal. Rest and in the morning let them know you won’t be at work. And no that is not up for debate. Sweet dreams Ianto.” Luna pressed a kiss to his cheek. A soft sad smile made an appearance. “Thank you Luna, for everything.” Giving her a gentle kiss on the forehead he enters his room.
Heading back into the living room Luna silently cleaned up her kit. If Ianto wasn’t going to fight than she would just have to do it for him. She’s not ready to lose Ianto, not now. Looking into the night sky filled with stars, “please help me sisters, brothers. It’s not Ianto time to rejoin you yet.” She pleaded, and the stars twinkled as they answer her. “Thank you.”
Across the city, deep within the underground the second half of our story begins.
Jack sighed as he turned off the CCTV of Gwen. Wincing as his eyes caught the time, he had spent the last two hours watching Gwen and Rhys. “I hope Ianto isn’t too mad.” He muttered and as soon as he thought of the Welshman it all came rushing back that Rhys hadn’t been the only one injured.
“Damn it.” Jack swore as he shot out of his chair. How could he have forgotten that his lover had been hurt? He had seen the gun in Ianto face, and if it hadn’t jammed. Jack closed his eyes and refused to finish that thought. He lived threw losing Ianto once, he couldn’t do it again.
Suddenly he needed to see Ianto, to hold him in his arms and to know he’s been spared of having to relive that pain of losing Ianto, rushing out of his office crying Ianto name, only to come to a stop when he realized that no one but Tosh was here.
Tosh looked up with Jack with a hint of sadness and angry in her eyes. “Ianto not here Jack, he left hours ago, while you were busy watching Gwen.” She informed him softly. Jack could hear the underline angry in her voice, and as Ianto best friend he could understand why. “I need to talk to him.” Jack muttered heading for his greatcoat. “He’s not home.” Tosh’s voice stopped him in his tracks. Whirling around Jack asked in a clam voice. “Where is he? Please Tosh; this has been all a misunderstanding.”
Tosh looked at her boss, truly looked and saw what she needs to make her decision. “I can’t tell you,” she held up her hand to stop Jack from speaking, “it’s not my place. Ianto was broken when he left here, you hurt him so deeply Jack. Just know Jack that he is with a friend who will never let harm come to him. The wounds are far too raw for the two of you to talk tonight. Give him a chance to lick his wounds, and for you to think of what to say to him. Tomorrow you two can talk.”
A sigh escaped Jack lips, of course Tosh was right. If he went to Ianto now it might cause even more damage. “Fine, but first thing tomorrow morning, you will tell me where I can find him.” Jack order, Tosh nodded wondering if she should say what’s on the tip of her tongue, seen the deep pain in both Jack and Ianto eyes made her decision. “Jack, Ianto thinks he’s only your part time shag.” Tosh informed him softly. Jack eyes widen. “What? No Tosh, he is so much more than that. I ….” Jack trailed off. Tosh placed her hand comfort on Jack arm. “I know that, but it’s Ianto you have to convince. Tell him that Jack, let him know what he really means to you.” She told him.
Jack hugged her. “Thank you Tosh.” He whispered in her ear as he released her. Tosh watch as Jack made his way back into his office. “Tell him Jack, before it’s too late. A star can only live so long with a broken heart.” She whispered sadly as she reached for her phone, she has call to make.
