"Something Sacred" Torchwood drabble Jack, Gwen Rating-G

Title: Something Sacred
Fandom: Torchwood
Characters: Jack, Gwen
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011. Day 165. Happy Birthday cookielaura. Prompt:TW - Gwen - Jack's braces. (Prompt originally for mmom, but now a gen-fic.) Unbeta'd. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: Everything's changed. Gwen tries to understand why. (Post-ep for Everything Changes)

Gwen let herself into the flat as quietly as possible, hoping for time to think before Rhys woke up.

Her whole life had been turned inside out and upside down just in the last few hours. Aliens and madwomen with guns and a man who couldn’t die.

A man who couldn’t die and who dressed like something out of an old movie.

She remembered an outing when she was a child. Her mother dressed to the nines and her father, in his best Harris Tweed, wearing braces. She’d always trusted her father.

Maybe that’s why she’d chosen to trust Jack.
