            “It hurts.”

 

            Tish cradled him carefully, making sure she kept his head as straight and still as possible. “I know, sweetheart, I know.”

 

            “I don’t think I can do this.”

 

            “Yes, you can. I promise it, you can.”

 

            Yan moaned. “God it hurts.”

 

            “Talk to me, then. Tell me what you see.”

 

            ‘The end of the Universe. It’s so dark and cold. And there’s nothing except hope and even that will end.” He rubbed his palms on the carpet. “And the drums…”

 

            She blanched but kept her hold. “What about the drums?”

 

            “Scared. But why? There’s nothing to fear in the light.”

 

            “Tell me about the light, Yan.” Tears poured down her face. “What do you see?”

 

            “Warm. And safe. And so much power! I can do anything. I can make anything.” Suddenly he reached out as if grasping something Tish couldn’t see. “Why would anyone fear this?”

 

            “I don’t know. Can you still hear the drums?”

 

            “Yes. But it’s only my heartbeat. The light holds it, keeps it safe. Keeps me? No. Not me. Ianto.”

 

            “Can you see Ianto?”

 

            “He’s here. Hey, we do look good in a suit.”

 

            She giggled through her tears. “That you do, sweetheart. So now what?”

 

            “Now we…” 

 

            His body convulsed. She hung on, while at the same time tapping her earpiece frantically. “Martha! Get in here. Now!”

 

            “No. I’m… fine.” His voice was weak, and the Welsh accent was more pronounced.” It’s fine.”

 

            “Like hell, Yan. You were nearly levitating off the carpet.”

 

            He tried to sit up. “I’m fine, Tish. Really.”

 

            She kept her arms around him. “All right. So… did it work?”

 

            “I think so.” He sighed and dropped his head to her shoulder. “It wasn’t what I was expecting.”

 

            She stroked his hair. “Rough, uh?”

 

            “Something like that, yes.”

 

            Both of them looked up at the sound of running feet.

 

            “Oh. Sorry. We didn’t mean to interrupt.”

 

            “Interrupt what, Jack? Jack!”

Poor Yan having to go through this and Jack his timing it is ok and hopefully he does not get the wrong feeling from this and things get even more awkward.

If it were not for poor timing Jack would have no timing ...
[identity profile] merucha.livejournal.com on August 18th, 2009 09:57 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but he's out of control and out of balance on this one...

Jack's timing, perfect as always :D
[identity profile] merucha.livejournal.com on August 19th, 2009 12:41 am (UTC)
You know Jack... but this time is just... he's not coping well, and I don't blame him!

Hey, I learned with the teach... the queen of the cliffies!

*hugs Yan and beats Jack up with a wet kipper*

Love this series, but you are a Queen of Evil Cliffhangers!

Jack is a little off center these days...
[identity profile] aeron-lanart.livejournal.com on August 19th, 2009 05:44 pm (UTC)
Well then, being hit with a fish might be just what he needs to help knock him back again. I will even provide the kippers.

And I am suffering from lack of sleep so doubt any of this makes sense. Awake for 25 hours and counting...

You're going to sleep for days once you fall into bed!

Bloody nights! Stupid body clock and all.
