RAYMOND REDDINGTON
tbl 312 “the vehm”

‘Captain Jack Harkness, at your service!’ Boomed a very familiar voice in his head.
“Why are you doing that?”
'I’m the voice of who you most admire, Ianto Jones. Great shoes, by the way.’
“Thanks. But I wish you wouldn’t do him.”
'Oh, come on, Ianto. It’s just a bit of fun. Puts you at ease, doesn’t it? Admit it. Just a little?’
“It’s comforting, yes. But it’s not right. You shouldn’t sound like him. Not when I’m trying to work out what to… do…”
'It’s really easy.’
“Is it? Can you make everything right? Can you? Jack and that room and me?”
'Yes. Trust me, Ianto.’
“I’m not sure I can. I’ve seen what those creatures did looking for you.”
'But Ianto - all the people I’ve helped. I helped so many on that boat.’
“But so many people died. And look at me.”
'I can fix you. And Jack. I can fix him too.’
“NO!”
'You love him. He doesn’t love you. You saw him in there. But I can change all that, Ianto Jones.’
