For the tw100 Plot Reverse Challenge
AN: A Torchwood retelling of the last scene of the due South episode The Ladies Man. You don't need to have seen the episode to understand the drabble. Feel free to point out any errors I missed.
Slight spoiler for Fragments.
Tosh and Ianto sat in the SUV. Ianto was as still as a tin soldier. Tosh didn't know if Ianto had been given forgiveness or condemnation. Alien technology was easy for her to understand; people were the mystery.
She waited for something, anything to happen. After her mother had been taken, waiting for word had been the hardest part.
Ianto picked up his keys, but they fell out of his shaking hand. The falling metal sounded like breaking glass.
Ianto began to cry.
Tosh did the only thing she could. She reached over and rested her hand on his neck.
