The Prologue


The creature had sat and listened to their conversation. It thought the people sounded interesting. The two young men were definitely handsome and obviously intent on having a good time judging by the amount of Asturian mead they’d downed. This had loosened their tongues as they talked about Planet Earth and a place called Cardiff and a man called Jack. They’d been arguing because the one called Ianto was feeling guilty about what he’d done to this Jack. The blonde one said it was only the mead talking and kissed Ianto fiercely on the mouth. The creature was curious and went on listening until it thought it had found out enough. Through the handy terminal in the meeting place it had accessed data on planet Earth. It looked nice with lots of water and different climates. It then keyed in Cardiff and Cardiff Bay and finally Captain Jack Harkness and Torchwood. Interesting it thought, might be worth a visit. It had been a bit bored recently and wanted some fun. This Captain Jack looked as if he might do fun. So having fixed his co-ordinates, Cardiff Bay, Wales, Earth, December 2011, it pressed a button.

The next time the creature could be seen was sitting on a bench looking out over Cardiff Bay. It was midday on 24th December and he, for now he looked like a he, was watching Captain Jack walk across the Plass to the Hub burdened down with bags and bags. When he saw the creature sitting on the bench Jack dropped everything and ran towards him. The creature found himself being hugged and kissed.

‘Ianto, you’re back for Christmas. This may be the best present I’ve ever had’

‘Yes Jack,’ replied the creature who was now Ianto, ‘I’m back.’
