Zack felt bad that life institution didn’t provide much conversational fodder. After a run-down of the latest cases and personal gossip from the Jeffersonian, there was an uncomfortable lull in the conversation. He didn’t want Hodgins to leave yet.
“I got a visit from Torchwood,” he blurted.
“The super-secret alien-fighting organization founded by Queen Victoria? They came to see you? Here?”
He definitely had Hodgin’s attention now.
“Yes. They asked for my input on some alien mathematical symbols. The man who came was very attractive.”
“You’ve actually met the Captain Jack Harkness?”
“No. He said his name was Ianto Jones.”
