Path to forgiveness Part fourteen
A week after Ianto comes back from his suspension; he is hurt by an alien device. Deaging fic. Spoilers up to Cyberwoman. Warnings Gwen bashing and preslash, Janto of course and even a bit of Towen.
Beta'd by the amazing Owensheart.
“Good morning,” Tosh called out as she walked into the hub the next morning, she was really excited to be taking Ianto to the cinemas. Especially since her secret crush, Owen, would be going with them, though her crush wasn’t so secret unless you were the oblivious doctor in question.
“Good Morning,” Jack replied. “How are you feeling this morning?”
“I’m fine” Toshiko answered. “How’s Ianto? Was there anymore nightmares last night?”
“No he’s fine,” Jack said. “He was a bit clingy last night, I think he thought I was going to leave him again but he’s fine today. What time is the film on?”
“Half past three” Tosh answered. “I was thinking that we could watch the film and then go for something to eat afterwards. Though you could come with us if you want, I’m sure that everything will be fine for a few hours.”
“No that’s fine,” Jack answered. “It will probably be better for me to stay at the hub just in case something does happen and besides you know I’ll hog Ianto if I come. You and Owen won’t even get a look in, just have fun and I’ll be fine until you come back.”
“Are you excited about the film Ianto?” Tosh asked as the group drove to the Red Dragon Centre.
“Yeah,” Ianto answered happily, he didn’t know what the film was about but he was happy about going out with Tosh and Owen. “Why Jack no come?”
“He had to work Ianto,” Owen replied. “But at least we know we’re not going to get complaints about Jack sexually harassing people again.”
“What’s that?”Ianto asked, in curiosity.
“It doesn’t matter,” Owen quickly answered, wincing as he noticed the glare he was getting from Tosh. Owen knew from experience how scary Tosh was when she was angry and he liked to avoid that as much as he could which would definitely include watching what he said in says in front of Ianto. “In fact why don’t you ask Jack when we get back? He will be able to tell you all about it.
“Ok,” Ianto replied happily.
Tosh was trying to glare at Owen but was finding it so hard not to laugh, she couldn’t wait to look though the CCTV footage and find out exactly how flustered Jack got when he had to explain sexual harassment to the child version of his secret love.
The group had just reached their destination and where walking towards the cinema when they heard a familiar voice calling out towards them making the three of them groan in disappointment.
“What are you all doing here?” Gwen asked as she walked up to the group, though she knew exactly what they were doing there. “Where’s Jack? I thought he was coming with you.”
“No, he stayed back to get some work done,” Tosh replied trying to keep calm as she still hadn’t quite forgiven her for what happened yesterday. “We’re going to the cinemas.”
“This is my boyfriend Rhys,” Gwen introduced, as she tried to keep the annoyance out of her voice. After all the only reason she persuaded Rhys to go out for a meal was because she was hoping to spot Jack, especially since she wasn’t allowed in the hub until Ianto was back to normal.
“Hi Rhys,” Owen greeted. “I’m Owen Harper, that’s Toshiko Sato and this is Ianto.”
“Hello,” Rhys replied. “You both work with Gwen then? Is Ianto your son?”
“No he’s not,” Owen laughed. “We’re looking after him for the day; he’s my friend’s son.”
“That’s nice of you both” Rhys replied. “Gwen and I are going for a meal since she got the rest of the week off.”
“Well we’ve got to go now,” Tosh stated as she realised the time. “The films going to start soon and if we don’t go now we’re going to miss the beginning.”
“Maybe we should come with you” Gwen suggested. “I haven’t had much time with Ianto and he’ll be going home in a couple of days.”
“That’s probably not a good idea” Owen answered. “Jack doesn’t want you anywhere Ianto at the moment and you know that.”
“Why not?” Rhys demanded. “My Gwen would make an amazing mother, she is a natural with children and there is no reason for this Jack to ban her from coming near Ianto.
“Yeah there is.” Tosh replied. “There was an incident yesterday...”
“That wasn’t much of a big deal,” Gwen interrupted hoping to stop Tosh before she told Rhys what happened.
“What do you mean it wasn’t a big deal,” Tosh snapped. “Jack asked you to look after Ianto for ten minutes and you left him alone in the park. He’s three Gwen, anything could have happened to him just because you didn’t think of the consequences of your actions.”
“Yeah it would probably be better if we didn’t join you,” Rhys stated before he noticed Gwen looking at him with a betrayed looking face. “You can’t blame Jack for not wanting you near Ianto after you almost lost him.”
“Yeah I suppose” Gwen replied. “I’ll see you all on Monday,”
“Yeah see you then” Tosh smiled. “It was nice meeting you Rhys.”
The group separated and luckily Gwen hadn’t managed to make them late for the movie.
“I wonder why Gwen wanted to come with us?” Owen stated as the advertisements started.
“I’m not completely sure,” Tosh replied. “But I think it’s most likely to be some ploy of hers to try and get Jack to forgive her for everything that she did yesterday. Though I can’t believe that she thinks forgiveness is going to be earned so easily after how furious Jack was with her yesterday.”
“I know,” Owen agreed. “It’s going to take ages for him to even think of forgiving her and even then he’s not going to let her back in the hub until Ianto is back to normal.”
“She seems to believe that Jack is in love with her,” Tosh stated. “That’s probably why she thinks it’s going to be so easy for Jack to forgive her.”
“I just wish that she could understand the fact that Jack flirts with everyone,” Owen replied. “Beside if there is anyone on our team that Jack has a thing for its Ianto.”
“That’s probably why she’s been so horrible to Ianto lately,” Tosh agreed. “She’s jealous.”
“Well the film is about to start” Owen stated. “Let’s stop going on about Little Miss I’m so much better than everyone else and enjoy the film.”
