Torchwood double drabble 1/1  
Happy Birthday midnightmurdina! This fic's for you, hope you enjoy. The prompt given was 'Scarborough Fair', my choice of fandom. Since it's suitable, also posting for day 17 of consci_fan_mo

As usual, nothing you recognise is mine.

Then You’ll Be a True Love of Mine

Ianto couldn’t put his finger on the exact moment he fell in love with Jack, it probably wasn’t a single moment, rather an accumulation over time. But he did know the moment when Jack had seen it and tried to put a stop to it.

It was quite mundane; they had been walking back to the Hub, arms full of fish and chips, joking about some inconsequential event that day. Ianto had been thinking how much he loved Jack and something of his thoughts must have shown on his face as Jack stopped suddenly and looked out across the bay.

“It’s good to have these moments, Ianto. When you’ve lived as long as I have, lost so many, it’s the fun times that make life worthwhile,” he said. And just as suddenly he was all smiles and jokes again.

Ianto didn’t comment but he heard the message loud and clear. Jack couldn’t let himself fall in love with a mortal, with someone he could lose. He was stress-relief, an occasional fun shag and that was it. He had never expected anything more anyway.

He knew there was only one person Jack truly loved, and he could never be that person.

I'm really pleased you liked it. I was unsure how to interpret your prompt, but then when I looked again at the lyrics of the song it just clicked.
