“Jack!” Ianto called as he entered the Hub. “I know you did it, Jack!” He looked around the seemingly empty Hub and frowned. He stalked to the coffee machine, shedding snow from his coat and scarf as he went.
“I know you’re here, Jack!” he called as he made coffee. He left the lid off the coffee beans and let their aroma add to the brewing coffee scents, knowing exactly what would bring his Captain out of hiding.
“I have no idea what you’re talking about.” Jack suddenly appeared behind him and Ianto calmly closed the tin and turned around. He held a cup of coffee in his hand and sipped at it, ignoring Jack’s pout and ‘gimme’ hand movements.
“No, this is mine. I’m not making you any coffee – decaf or otherwise until that… thing is gone.” Ianto spoke firmly and Jack scrunched his nose up.
“Oh come on Ianto, I think it looks great. And it took me hours to do.”
Ianto glared at the unrepentant Captain. “Which part of the ‘secret organisation, tell no-one’ that you always insist on did you conveniently decide didn’t apply to you as well?”
“I am the boss, Ianto,” Jack said and drew himself up to his full height. “I can decide what’s secret and what’s not.”
“Jack. You built a six foot snowman in the shape of a pteranodon and carved Torchwood on its collar. That’s not being secret.”
“I did build it on the invisible lift,” Jack pointed out quickly defensive. “No-one’s going to see it.”
“Actually no, you didn’t. You put it on the wrong slab. You put it next to the invisible lift.”
