"Horseshoes" Torchwood drabble Jack/OMC Rating-PG

Title: Horseshoes
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Jack/OMC, implied Jack/Gwen
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 100
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011. Day 320. Prompt from tw100. Challenge #219-Escape to LA. Beta'd by book_junkie007. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: Nostalgia ain't what it used to be.

Jack awoke to a soft kiss on his forehead and the California sun against his eyelids.

Through the haze, his newly-mortal body was screaming for a massage. Jack knew just the guy, too. Kyle. Or Kevin? He had a condo in West Hollywood and really big hands. Among other things.

“Come on, Jack. Rise and shine.”

Gwen’s voice brought him back to reality. Kevin (Kyle?) was as much history as Jack’s mustache, lost to yet another disaster that Jack couldn’t stop.

He took her hand, squeezing tightly, drawing strength for the fight to come.

This time he wasn’t running away.
