Title: Snow (1/1)
Summary: Cardiff is pretty from the roof.
"Sir?" Ianto stepped out onto the roof. Snow was falling softly. Jack was standing at the edge, looking over the bay.
"Yan." Jack didn't look over until he was standing next to him.
"It is a lovely view here, Sir."
"It's Jack, Ianto. We're not in the hub."
Ianto nodded, examining the snow that had fallen onto Jack’s hair.
"Isn't it remarkable, all these people just go about their day, every day, never stopping, never pausing to think of what the universe offers to them. They take it for granted, not stopping to think that tomorrow could bring about the end of their world."
"Isn't that what we protect here, Jack?"
Jack turned to face Ianto. "It is indeed, Yan."
Ianto shivered. From the gaze Jack gave him or the cold, he wasn't sure, though he suspected more of the former. Jack took a step closer and leaned in, his breath hot against Ianto’s ear.
“Still have that stopwatch?”
