"Snafu Jump" Torchwood Drabble Jack/Estelle Rating-PG

Title: Snafu Jump
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Jack/Estelle
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 100
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011. Day 294. Prompt from Photo Prompt Challenge. This Picture. Unbeta'd. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: Once a con man, always a con man.



She always gets it wrong.

It wasn’t just the faeries. Estelle saw the best in everybody, including him, and he had loved her, more deeply than he’d let himself care about anyone since Angelo. If things had been different, he’d have kept his promise, but they weren’t and neither was he. Even while he spent his nights dancing with Estelle, there were others. War widows, enlisted men, and the occasional drop-in from the Rift.

The faithful lover who stole Estelle’s heart was his biggest con yet.

When he left, it was to protect her from the truth, all of it.
