"Suspended In Time" TW100 Challenge #200 Jack/Lucia Rating-PG

Please note: This is NOT the Drabble-a-Day drabble of the day. This challenge requires 200 words and my personal rules for Drabble-a-Day are 100. So this is a bonus and there will be a Drabble-a-Day drabble posted later.


Title: Suspended In Time
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Jack/Lucia
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 200
Notes: Written for tw100. Challenge #200-Reverse fandom-Stargate:SG-1. Prompt-Smoke & Mirror. Beta'd by ficbypen. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: "But how can our love succeed? A miracle is what we need."



You light another cigarette before facing your reflection again. You’ve lost count of how many that makes today. Numbers of cigarettes don’t matter; numbers of wrinkles do.

What’s happened to you?

You meet a bloke at the Brighton Pier, at few days after the moon landing. He rescues your chips from some gulls and takes you for a ride on the Ferris Wheel. He looks to be in his 30’s, far too old for you, just out of uni. He kisses you at the top of the wheel and two days later, you’re in Cardiff, of all places, signing up to hunt aliens.

Everybody assumes you’re sleeping with Jack, and they all warn you not to fall in love with him, but it’s already too late.

You hope the baby will change things, which it does: you’re officially removed from Torchwood for your own safety. Jack stays as long as he can stand it. As long as you can stand him, still looking as gorgeous as he did that first day in Brighton. Now he just visits to see Alice and give you the occasional tumble.

You wonder how many wrinkles it will take before he never shows up again.
