A/N Apologies for anyone getting this numerous times.
Jack went to get their visitors. The rest of the team were waiting in the conference room. As they entered all eyes were on Sims and Archer. Tosh was smiling and Ianto was stood behind her with his hands on her shoulders.
Seeing Tosh and Ianto, Archer stopped in the doorway. Jack pushed him forward. “Come on then, we haven’t got all day. Don’t you want to know what we’ve decided?”
“But I thought you were taking me to see Karen? You said you’d let me see her one last time.”
“I said if I liked what I heard, and Paul I’m sorry I didn’t like what I heard. You’ve insulted Tosh and by doing that you’ve insulted the whole team. You’ve injured Ianto, therefore you’ve put the whole team in jeopardy. So no, you don’t get to see you precious sister.”
“What....what about me? I was only doing what he wanted me to do. I love my job and I love working for Doctor Jones.”
All the while Martha had been standing outside the door, slowly she pushed it open. Jack saw her and nodded. Sims had his back to the door, but on hearing movement behind him he turned, only to come face to face with his supervisor.
“Good afternoon Stuart, so glad I could be here to witness this sickening speech from you. You were a trusted member of my team, you arrived to me highly recommended, and this is how you treat your position. You knew when you began working at UNIT that anything that went on was done in the strictest of confidence. Then I find not only do you betray our trust in you, you betray my friends here at Torchwood. All for what? The satisfaction of hurting someone, maybe even killing them?” She waited for an answer and when he remained silent she asked “for what Mr Sims, what was your payment? How much were you being paid for this confidential information?”
“Nothing” he whispered.
“What, couldn’t quite hear that.”
“Nothing, I didn’t get any payment what so ever. You satisfied?”
Martha laughed, “so you risked your career, which, let me tell you, is no longer with UNIT.”
“But....but what am I supposed to do now then?”
“That’s your problem, you should have thought about that in the beginning.”
Sims looked at Archer, then at Martha who went and stood near Jack. Jack put his arm around her.
“Ok Ianto, Tosh, the rest is down to you. We’ll let you explain to these two what is going to happen to them.”
Ianto was the first to speak. “Neither of you are going to be leaving here. As you have already witnessed we have comfortable rooms downstairs. Maybe our clientele leaves a bit to be desired, but hey, what’s a friendly weevil by the name of Janet going to do to you? If you don’t make too much noise then she won’t bother you.”
Tosh continued “if, and only if you can prove that you will behave yourself then once in a while we’ll let you out. We may even decide that you can spend some time above ground. But gent’s that all depends on your behaviour. Ianto and I have been given the problem of taking care of you whilst you spend the rest of your lives here.”
Ianto took up the dialogue “if anything should happen to us, say in six months time that causes us harm, and we can trace it back to any of your friends or family, then we will take great pleasure in feeding you to Mfanwy, and before you ask she’s our resident pterodactyl.”
Jack was grinning to himself and had to turn away from the two men. The looks on their faces was pure terror. “Right Yan, Tosh is that everything covered?”
“But what Mr Archer?”
“What if you are killed and no-one knows about us down in the cells, what’s going to happen to us? How will we survive?”
“Oh don’t worry, if anything does happen like that, just remember it will be me looking after you both. Remember one of the things you found out about me was that I can’t die – well not permanently anyway.”
Archer and Sims looked from Jack to Martha then to Tosh and Ianto who hadn’t moved through all of this and both nodded their heads.
“Ok kids that’s settled, Owen escort these two to the cells. Ianto, Tosh they must be hungry and thirsty go fix them their suppers. After all they’ll have to get used to our food won’t they?”
Owen delighted in pushing them back down to be with Janet, whilst the rest went and fixed their suppers, but with an extra added ingredient.
“Ok, we said that we’d use enough Retcon to make them both forget Canary Wharf, what do you want us to do with them whilst they’re sleeping?” asked Ianto.
“I’ll take Sims back with me to London, I’ve got his address on file, so I’ll take him home. You can do what you want with Archer.”
“Didn’t he say he lived in London too? Well Owen and I will take him back there, we can leave him on his doorstep making it look as though he’d been mugged. How does that sound?”
“Great Tosh, you’ve thought of everything haven’t you?”
“I’ll help the pair of you, then maybe we could make a night of it, have a few drinks, maybe get drunk and relax for once in a while.”
“Sounds fantastic Gwen, couldn’t have thought of anything better myself.” They were leaving the kitchen when Jack called Gwen back, “do me a favour, I know there’s something going on between you and Owen.”
She looked shocked “I’m sorry....”
“I don’t want to hear sorry, I won’t say I don’t care because I do. Just do two things for me please.”
“Firstly don’t hurt Rhys, he’s a good man and secondly look after Tosh for me tonight please. Make sure she’s not on her own.”
“Sure Jack” and she hugged him.
Once they were all together again, Archer and Sims were eating their supper, they sorted out how long to leave them before they took them home.
Later that afternoon, Martha had Sims in her car and Owen, Gwen and Tosh had Archer in the SUV both sleeping like babies, Jack and Ianto bid them farewell and to have a safe journey.
Watching the vehicles drive off, Jack turned to Ianto “come on sweetheart, I think it’s time we went to bed.”
