 Ianto was smiling to himself when a figure approached.  He looked up into the coldest eyes he’d seen for a long time.  He shivered, “yes?  Can I help you?”

“I’m sorry, I work for the hospital radio and wondered if you’d like a song playing?”

“You’re too late, Mr Harkness has just taken my request down to the studio, but thank you anyway.”

“Oh, no problem.  Well enjoy listening and remember if there’s anything you want playing just dial *4004 and leave a message if no one’s there.”

“Thank you I will Mr....”

“Hart....John Hart”  He smiled and left.

Ianto was stunned, hadn’t Jack said that was the name of his ex?  He’d have to mention it to Jack when he came back.  No....let it go, he’s just doing his job, Jack said he worked for the radio.  Leave it for now, don’t worry Jack, it was nothing.  Ianto tried to convince himself it was nothing, but deep down he couldn’t shake the feeling that Hart had somehow found out about them and wanted to see what he was like.  He decided to wait to see if Hart came back anymore before he mentioned it to Jack.

Hart made his way out of the hospital, now he could put a face to the name it was going to be fun taking this young man away from Jack.  And when the accident happened he would be there for Jack to help him recover.  Help him pick up the pieces and love him again as he did before.  No....not before, as he did now.  I love you Jack Harkness, with all my heart and you are going to be mine again, I promise you that!  He made his way to his car smiling as he went.

Jack wasn’t gone long.  He couldn’t bear to be away from Ianto for very long.  He bounded back into the ward to find Ianto back in bed, eyes closed listening, he hoped, to the radio.

Creeping up to him, instead of touching his arm as he was going to do to let him know he was back, he leant down and kissed him, slowly at first.  Then when Ianto’s tongue pushed its way through his lips mapping every contour of Jack’s mouth, their passions rose.

Breaking for much needed air “Wow Mr Jones, and how did you know that was me?”

“Mmmm, who else would it be cariad....?”  And Ianto stopped.  “I’m sorry Jack, I shouldn’t have said that I....I don’t know why I did.”

“Well for starters it sounded hot, just like you, and second I don’t know why you’re apologising because I have no idea what it means.”  He saw Ianto blush.  “Well are you going to tell me what it means or do I have to go and ask that pretty nurse over there?”

Ianto could feel his face flush, he had to tell him, but what if it frightened him away, he didn’t want that.

“Come on Yan, you can’t leave me wondering.  I’m beginning to think it’s not a nice comment.”

“Sit down Jack, then I’ll tell you, but please don’t be mad at me.”

“How could I?  You’re gorgeous Ianto Jones.  Now come on otherwise....” and he went to stand up again.

“Ok....ok Jack, the closest translation to English means....love or my love.  There I’ve said it, I’m sorry if I....”

“Sssshhh, it’s gorgeous, just like you and I like the sound of it.  You can go on saying it as much as you like.”

“Do you mean that?”

“Yes, my love, I mean it.”

Ianto smiled at Jack’s comment and pulled him in for another kiss.

“Right Yan, I’m under orders.”  He looked at the nurse at the door “she’s told me I’ve got to go home and let you get some sleep.  I’ll be back tomorrow afternoon during visiting hours.”


“Yes my love?”

“Just....I’ll be thinking of you.”  He was going to say something about Hart but didn’t want to spoil the moment.

Jack leaned in for a kiss “goodnight, and I’ll see you tomorrow.”

“Goodnight cariad.  I’ll be waiting.”

Jack could see the nurse heading towards them.  He smiled at Ianto and left before she had a chance to tell him off.

Hart waited for Jack to leave.  He was sat in his car just waiting.  Why Jack?  We were so good together.  He saw him exit the Hospital and head towards his vehicle.  Hart started his car and drove slowly towards his partner.  All he wanted was for Jack to love him, to be in his bed again.  Hart realised he’d picked up speed and was heading directly at Jack.  What am I doing?  I don’t want to hurt him that way, it would be too easy.  At the last minute he swerved away from Jack, tyres screeching he managed to miss him.  He only hoped Jack hadn’t recognised the car.

As Jack left the hospital he was still thinking of those electric blue eyes and the gorgeous smile that was Ianto.  He was thinking about everything that had happened over the last few days.  How had they got so far in such a short time?  He never fell for anyone as quickly as he’d fallen for Ianto.  He knew their feelings were right, how could they not be?  Hadn’t Ianto felt the same?  That word he used tonight, what was it?  Cariad, mmmm Mr Jones I like the sound of that very much.

He was making his way to his SUV when he heard tyres screeching, he only had time to look in the direction of the noise when he realised a car was heading straight for him.  His reflexes took over, adrenalin was pumping and he only just managed to jump out of the way and land behind his vehicle before the maniac who was driving would have hit him.  He recovered enough to pick himself up and look to see who it was that was driving.  Don’t be stupid Jack, Hart wouldn’t go that far....would he?  He couldn’t be certain that it was Hart.  He knew he was capable of some stupid things but none as crazy as running him over. 

He regained his composure and let himself into his vehicle.  His heart was pounding, his mind racing, why would he do something that stupid?  He took out his phone and dialled Hart.

Hart’s phone rang “Jack, everything ok?  I didn’t think I’d be hearing from you so soon.  Is everything alright with your friend?”

“Yes he’s ok.  What were you playing at just now?”

“What do you mean?  I’m in the pub Jack, and have been for the last hour.  I’m with Stuart, you know from....”

“Hart what the hell are you playing at?  You were at the hospital weren’t you?”

“No Jack, I’ve been here for....well let me put Stuart on, he’ll tell you.”

“No....no don’t bother.  I’ve had enough for one night.  If I find it was you that just tried to run me down you’re definitely out of the company.”

“Jack....Jack are you ok?”

“I’m fine, just shaken.  But I’m warning you....Do you hear me?”

“I swear it wasn’t me.  Just as long as you’re alright, that’s fine.”

“Listen, no more antics, move on John....please.  You’ll only destroy yourself.”

“I know, and I will.  I promise.”

“Goodnight John, I’ll see you in two weeks.”

“Night Jack. Everything will be fine.”

Jack hung up.  He hoped it would be fine.  He knew what Hart’s temper was like.  He smiled then at the thought of a certain gorgeous Welshman who had agreed to move into his spare room and whom he was in love with.

Hart hung up.  He was hoping Jack hadn’t wanted to speak to Stuart.  He didn’t exist.  He was in the pub but had only just walked in when his phone rang.

He’d have to be more careful.  It was Jack he wanted, not to kill him.  That was a thrill he was going to have with Ianto Jones.  His heart was racing and he was smiling to himself as he approached the bar.  He’d never felt a rush like this before.  He could feel himself becoming aroused at the thought of hurting eye candy.  Stop it Hart.  Calm down.  There’s a time and a place for that.  Save it for when you get Jack back.  He had to take several deep breaths before he could order his vodka.  He didn’t want anyone remembering the state he was in if they were questioned at a later date.  Bide your time, let them get closer, then you can....  He didn’t quite know how he was going to get rid of Jones.  He just knew it was going to happen.


Ianto watched Jack leave.  He was missing him already.  How have you got so far so soon in this relationship?  He knew he wanted Jack, he knew he was falling in love with the older man.  He just hoped that he wouldn’t be a disappointment to him.  He would get Jack to help him, show him what it was like to love another man.  Jack Harkness I love you.  He whispered to himself, smiling.  Could he tell him how he really felt?  No it was too soon, wasn’t it?  What he did know was that he wanted to be with Jack more than anything.  He felt alive when Jack was with him.  It was right, and to hell with the rest of them.  They couldn’t spoil this relationship, no-one could, not even Hart.
Ianto fell asleep thinking of Jack and being at home with him.
