Owen worried Jack too, but for different reasons. Where Toshiko was locked down, Owen was wide open. Things affected him too much, and he let everyone know about it. Jack had no idea what Toshiko got up to in her spare time – if she got up to anything – but Owen was an open book. The first fifteen minutes of any day consisted of him reciting everything he’d got up to the night before: every drink, every sexual encounter, even – until Jack had put his foot down – every bowel motion.

And Jack’s thoughts on Owen… and a bit of an insight on Owen’s typical routine. You can see why he might drive Ianto a bit crazy.

“Owen and I decided to grab some drinks later. Are you guys in?”, Tosh asked excitedly when she joined Ianto and Gwen, who were working through some older files.
It had been a calm week in Cardiff. Well, compared to other weeks at least. The team had even found some time to go through some old cases and files, but most of the time they just sat around doing nothing but talk and joke around.

Gwen looked up at Tosh giving her a quick smile, “I promised Rhys to spend the evening with him, so I am out.” Tosh just shrugged, “Bring him along then.” “Thanks for the offer, but I really owe him some time for just the two of us.”

“What about you, Ianto?”, Tosh asked turning to the Welshman. “Sure, why not.” He shrugged offering her a slight smile as well before turning his attention back to the file in front of him. He didn’t have any plans for the evening anyway. So why not spend some time with the others outside the hub? It would be at least better than sitting home alone.

“Alright, guys. Let’s call it a day. There is nothing else to do anyway.”, Jack announced as he walked out of his office and into the main part of the hub, hands in his pockets.

Gwen was the first one to jump to her feet, “Rhys is probably already waiting.” She put on her jacket and grabbed her bag, “Have a nice evening! See you tomorrow!”

“You too.”, Owen said when she rushed past him and out of the door.

Ianto was sorting the files they had used earlier when he glanced up at Jack, “We are going to grab a drink or two. Do you want to come with us?”

Jack thought about it for a moment before he eventually agreed to join them.

“Four freshly drawn beers”, Ianto announced when he came back to the small booth in their regular bar. He handed everyone a glass of beer before sitting down next to Jack again.

They had a fun evening with a bunch of funny stories, jokes, a lot of laughing, and most importantly one drink after the other.

“Oh, Ianto! You aren’t the slightest bit drunk yet!”, Tosh complained jokingly. It was obvious that the others were already half-drunk. Ianto however had a few less drinks than his teammates. There was no point in getting drunk tonight and then being hungover at work the next morning. “I know exactly how to get him drunk!”, Owen got up grinning, “I’ll get us some shots.”

“Yes!”, Toshiko grinned excitedly, “And then we are going to play ‘Never have I ever’!”

“God, how old are we?16?!”, Owen rolled his eyes.

“Come on! It’s going to be fun!”

“If you think.” And with that he walked over to the bar just to come back with a tray full of vodka shots a few minutes later. He sat down next to Tosh again. He placed one shot glass in front of everyone before looking at Toshiko again, “Go ahead then.”

“Let’s get Ianto drunk,” she ignored Ianto’s protest and smirked knowingly, “Never have I ever smoked weed.” Ianto rolled his eyes, regretting he had told her about his youth and the one and only time he had smoked weed, but still chugged the vodka at the same time as Owen.

Owen glanced at Jack, “Really? Never? What have you been doing in your youth then?”

Jack just grinned at him, “Believe me when I say there is a lot of better stuff than weed. At least where I grew up.” Before Owen could ask any further questions, Jack handed him and Ianto a new shot glass of vodka, “I guess it’s your turn now.”

They played for a while, slowly getting closer to their goal of getting Ianto drunk.

On the tray, there were only a few vodka shots left. The table nevertheless was full of empty shot glasses. Even though they had mainly tried to find things Ianto had probably done, most of the empty glasses stood in front of Jack and Owen.

It was Tosh’s turn again, “Never have I ever had sex with a colleague!”
Ianto stared at the vodka shot in front of him. He had. Not only once. He had slept with Jack a bunch of times over the last few months. If he drank the vodka now Tosh and Owen would find out. He hadn’t slept with either of them and obviously, he was not the one with whom Gwen had cheated on Rhys. That only left Jack. He didn’t want them to know. Especially not Owen. It was none of their business.

From the corner of his eye he watched Jack and Owen chug their vodka shots. No one questioned them. They had stopped questioning Jack a long time ago. He had probably slept with everyone and everything, judging by the stories he told and his innuendos. And everyone knew Owen had slept with Gwen as well as with Suzie. But they would definitely question Ianto if he drank now.

Ianto noticed Jack glancing at him after he had put down the empty glass, but he decided to ignore it.

No, he was not going to drink. They were not going to find out. Not here, not now.

“Ianto?” Toshiko’s voice pulled him out of his thoughts, “Don’t you want to drink?” Ianto suddenly looked up at her the confusion clearly in his eyes. She knew! How did she know? Had Jack told them already? Had they been talking about him? Behind his back? “I -“ He quickly pushed his thoughts away, “What?”

Tosh looked at him. Now the confusion was written on her face. “Don’t you want to drink?” She repeated her question, “Lisa. She was your colleague, wasn’t she?”

Lisa! Of course! How could he forget about her? He was so focused on hiding the fact that he had slept with Jack that he totally forgot to think about his former jobs and about Lisa.

“Yes. Yes, she was. Sorry.”, he mumbled before quickly chugging the vodka.

They sat in silence for a moment. Tosh wondered if it was still too early for Ianto to talk about Lisa and if she had just brought back the hurtful memories. Just when she wanted to say something apologetic, Ianto smiled at her reassuringly as if he knew exactly what she was thinking, “Alright, I’m going to get us some more vodka shots.” He said as he got up, grabbed the now empty tray and started to collect all the empty shot glasses. “Let me help you.” Jack said as he got up as well and followed Ianto, who was already on his way to the bar.

Ianto put the tray down onto the counter before leaning against it and waiting for his turn to order. He ignored that Jack was leaning against the counter next to him. “Never had sex with a colleague apart from Lisa, huh?” Ianto turned to face him but before he could say anything Jack continued, “I wonder what we did last night then. Or the time before yesterday. Or the time before that. You do remember that, don’t you?” He raised an eyebrow but there was a slight, nearly invisible smirk playing on his lips.

“Jack,” Ianto sighed, “It’s just that-“ Jack interrupted him, “No, wait. Let me give you a quick reminder.” Before Ianto could say anything else Jack had cupped his face in his hands and kissed Ianto’s lips. Ianto kissed back but pulled back after just a moment. He quickly glanced over at Owen and Tosh in their booth. To his relieve they were obviously focusing on something on Owen’s phone and not paying attention to Jack and Ianto.

“Was that enough of a reminder? If not, I can give you a clearer reminder later.” Jack grinned at him before he added, “Not only can I, but I will.” He winked at Ianto, who turned back to Jack looking at him with a serious face, “I just think it’s none of their business. They don’t have to know everything.”

Jack sighed, “Stop thinking already. You think too much and that clearly shows me that you didn’t drink enough yet.”

Ianto ordered a new tray of vodka shots before he turned back to Jack, “But-“ Jack interrupted him once again, “No but! Come on, have fun already!”

“Whatever you say, sir!” Ianto said ironically. Jack just grinned. He quickly pecked Ianto’s lips before he grabbed the full tray and walked back to their table.

Ianto paid for the shots and followed Jack.

“Ready for another round?” Tosh asked as soon as the two of them were seated again, “Never have I ever…”

A dark time is coming. Humanity will be tested. And while we may not know who is doing the testing, or why - we must meet the challenge, as we have met all others. We will succeed. Because to do anything else would be... inhuman. We will watch the dark places - and bring illumination. There is no magic - only technology. Tools that we can master. Tools we must master. Not just to survive - but for the betterment of mankind. We can - and will - take our rightful place in the stars. This is my manifesto. I hope you will join my cause.
