Summary-"Knowing that you lied, straight-faced, while I cried."
Ianto watches Jack gazing at Gwen as though no one else exists, sees the way Martha Jones makes him light up like New Year’s Eve fireworks, hears the softness in his voice when he speaks lovingly of his Doctor.
He waits like a junkie for Jack to give him a few minutes of his time, another dose of what he’s become completely addicted to, accepts it gratefully, even when he can smell traces of perfume or aftershave that don’t belong to him, and still finds one good reason to believe that Jack really cares about him.
Because he has to.
