Back For Good?

AN: Thanks for the reviews people. Sorry if this ones a little short, I have a lot on at the moment…


Owen stood there grinning as the others looked on at him, dumfounded.

"What –? What the -? How did -?" spluttered Ianto.

"My words exactly…" Jack shook his head, his mouth wide open. When Owen simply smiled, quite oblivious to their amazement, Jack managed to find his voice again. "How did you survive?"

"Nice to see you too Jack," Owen said.

"Owen!" yelled Gwen.

Owen simply raised his eyebrows, "Wouldn't you like to know…" he looked around the hub, where Gwen, Jack, Ianto and Martha stood in front of him and frowned, "Where's Tosh?" No one said a word, but that was enough for Owen. He shook his head, "She's not…? But – oh my God …what happened?"

Jack shook his head sadly, "She was shot…"

"Who?" spat Owen.

"It doesn't matter… he's -"

"Who?" repeated Owen.

"My brother!? But he's gone… it doesn't matter anymore…" Jack shook his head, full resentment.

Owen looked down at the floor sadly, "She's was one of the reasons…" He trailed off.

"What?" asked Martha.

Owen looked up, as if only just noticing she was there, "Miss Martha Jones? Nicking my job are we?"

Martha smiled, "Well, not now you're back."

Jack shook his head, "This doesn't make sense Owen, you should be -"

"Should be what Jack? Dead? …You can't kill a dead man," he said it so bitterly Jack felt shocked. "Wish I were in the unknown…"

Jack sighed, "Tell us what happened Owen. What are you doing back here? What happened at the power station?"

Owen raised his eyebrows again, "Wouldn't you like to know…"

"Yes! For Gods sake Owen! What the shitting hell is going on!?" Gwen shouted.

"Alright, alright… calm down, I'll tell you." He gave a huge sigh and looked up at his intent audience, then he grinned, "I was in the room, when there was this huge light shining, and there was a voice and it said 'Come into the light Owen' and I ran and ran and there was the beautiful angel Gabriel, and she said -"

"Owen!" the others all gave sighs of frustration as he laughed at their stupidity of almost believing it.

Jack rubbed his forehead, "Owen, tell us what you remember… please."

Owen looked around at them all, they were all watching contently. He took a breath, "I was there in the plant… and that's it."

"What're you mean that's it?" Jack said, frowning.

"I mean that's all I remember. I was in the plant, I woke up and I was out the plant, simple as."

Gwen shook her head, "Are you serious?"

"Yes… I'm sorry, but the rest I don't remember…"


AN: Sorry it's short but that's the way it is. Also as I look back not a lot happened… ah well, what you gonna do. Review please. No flames.
