Ianto was so confused how Jack felt about him. He knew that he loved the immortal more than anything. Just one sign from the older man would make all the difference. He had to try and broach the subject but it was not as obvious that Jack got his meaning.
He was tired and had enough but there was still the shopping for the hub to do, he then had to pick up after Gwen and Jack. Considering it was just the two of them they still made so much mess.
It hurt is heart to think about Owen and Tosh.
Tosh his best friend, all he had now was Jack. There was no escape for just a meal or a cup of coffee. Not that he minded but it was nice when it was just the two of them having a giggle. Ianto knew that he could have tried that with Gwen but it didn't feel right. She was more of Jack's friend anyway.
Gwen stood and watched Jack she had never seen him as happy as he was with Ianto. She felt jealous that it wasn't her and Gwen knew it was a selfish thing to feel. Jack was one of those men that you wanted all of his attention on you and no one else. Somehow Jack and Ianto's relationship had changed and developed. It became more real and more lasting than it ever was before.
She was glad that they were happy. She smiled at Jack, it wouldn't stop the fantasies but hey a girl had to have them.
Jack stood and stared into nothing. There was something wrong with Ianto. He was acting odd. Sometimes Ianto could be so blunt but at other times it was so hard to decipher him. Under that cool calm exterior was a very hot and fiery interior and it was all his, no one else's. He hated the thought that some other man would see that side of Ianto. His Ianto. There was nothing else to do he was going to have to force Ianto to tell him what the problem is.
Ianto was slowly walking as he stared at his list. Suddenly he bumped into someone.
"Oh I am so sorry." Ianto muttered as bent down to help the blonde woman pick up her packages.
"That's ok I'm here visiting and wasn't looking where I was going." She said with a smile.
"Well I live here and was staring at my list to make sure I had brought everything." Ianto said with a smile. He looked down and saw the coffee he had made her spill. "Let me buy you another one, it won't be as good as mine though."
The blonde woman smiled at him. "Thanks as long as you join me." She paused realising how it sounded. "I'm not hitting on you; I'm just a little lonely. I'm travelling alone."
"Well in that case I would love to. I am Ianto, Ianto Jones." He said holding out his hand.
"Tracey Jarrod. It's very nice to meet you Ianto Jones." She waited to for him to turn around and let his work know that he would be a bit late. "At last."
Ianto sat across from Tracy and smiled.
"What is it? Tracy asked.
"I'm enjoying myself that's all. It's been a while since I have done anything like this. The man I'm seeing is really busy."
"I'm enjoying myself too, maybe we can meet up again. I'm only here for a few days. Even at home I don't have many friends." Tracy explained.
"I'd like that we keep in touch when you get back?" Ianto offered.
"That sounds good."
Jack looked at his watch and then wandered into the centre of the hub.
"Ianto?" Jack called out.
Ianto glanced down at his watch. "Damn."
"What's wrong Ianto?"
"I'm late meeting Jack. Sorry Tracy but I have to go."
Ianto and Tracy exchanged contact numbers.
"So tomorrow same time, same place?"
"That sounds great." Ianto smiled and headed off.
Ianto walked into the hub and straight into Jack.
"You were gone a long time." Jack said.
"I met this lady. She's over here on holiday and has never gone on a trip by herself. She was lonely so we had a meal." Ianto grinned as he kissed Jack.
"Sometimes Ianto you are just too good to be true."
"This is who I am, you know that."
"Yes I do and I wouldn't want you any other way."
"Really is that true?" Ianto waited for a moment. "I love you Jack." He said without really thinking.
Jack froze as he looked at the other man. "Ianto..."
Ianto blushed he hadn't meant to say that out aloud but he couldn't take it back. "It's ok Jack. You don't need to say anything. I just needed you to know." Ianto smiled and kissed him. They held hands as they went deep into the hub and the bedroom.
