"Not A Sex Pollen Story" Torchwood drabble Rating-G

Title: "Not A Sex Pollen Story"
Fandom: Torchwood
Characters: Gwen, Ianto, Jack, Owen
Rating: G (although there is some Welsh cursing)
Wordcount: 100
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011 Day 96. Prompt from tw100. B is for Bumble. Thanks to beta_goddess for applying the Full Metal and to filthgoblin for saving me from on-line translation program embarrassment. Please note: If anyone else went in this direction, it's GMTA and NOT plagiarism. Comments and concrit welcome.
Special note: This story is based on what the TW characters know as of Series 2.

Summary: Jack isn't always right.

“They look like bees, Ianto.”

“Jack says they’re aliens.”

“I used to spend summers on my uncle’s farm and he kept bees. I think we need to get some protective suits and a smoker.”

Ianto might have reconsidered if Gwen hadn’t chosen to mention her la-di-da summers in the country. He stepped forward with his weapon drawn.



“ Good old Apis mellifera,” said Owen, pulling out the stinger and applying a cooling salve.

Jack gave him a sympathetic pat on the shoulder, but Ianto could see him exchanging an amused look with Gwen. That was what really stung.
