Prologue


The door slammed open and rebounded off the wall as Ianto stormed in. He threw his keys down onto the kitchen bench and roughly pulled his coat off.

Jack entered in hot pursuit moments later. "Come on Ianto, it was just a bit of fun, there's no need to get upset." He said closing the apartment door behind him with more care then it had been opened with.

"Nothing to be upset about!? Those girls were all over you and you didn't stop them." Ianto snapped, the coat closet getting the same treatment as the front door as he put his coat away.

"So I flirted a little, it never harmed anyone, and you know what i'm like, it doesn't mean anything." Jack argued.

"No Jack it doesn't mean anything and I can understand it when we're working, I know that's how you get people comfortable and talking, but this wasn't work. We were on a date for crying out loud. Is it too much to ask for you to stop trying to pull when we are trying to have a romantic evening out?" Exasperated Ianto finally turned to face his supposed boyfriend.

"Ianto…"

He shook his head, "No I've had enough of your excuses. Go, out. I don't want to see you right now. Maybe going without will make you realize what you've done; but then it would be easy enough for you to find someone to shag wouldn't it?"


"NO!...JACK!...NO!"

"YOU WILL DO AS YOU'RE TOLD OR SO HELP ME!"

"YOU'LL DO WHAT? WHAT MORE COULD YOU DO!"

"ENOUGH!"

There was a loud 'SMACK', a scream, then nothing.


Doors slammed open abruptly as the gurney was rush into the emergency room. Doctor and nurses rushed over, taking over from the Ambulance officers who had brought the casualty in.

"Ianto Jones, Male, 26, unresponsive. Fell from a second storey balcony. Concussion, broken right femur, dislocated shoulder, and suspected spinal injury. Neighbors said there was a domestic disturbance; they think his boyfriend pushed him."

Pulling up beside one of the trauma beds, the nurses and EMTs spread around the gurney. The Doctor move to the head of the bed, and they all grabbed a handle of the back board the man was lying on. "Ok, everyone keep him steady, and on three. One, two, three."

As one they all lifted the man from the gurney onto the bed.

"Thanks we'll take it from here." The doctor said as the EMTs pulled the gurney away to make room for the nurses.

Pushing the gurney in front of him, the younger of the EMTs, Tim, glanced at his senior partner and asked, "Do you think he'll be alright?"

Matt shook his head, "If he lives I doubt he'll ever walk again."

Tim glanced back at the trauma room where the nurses were running around following the doctors orders, before the curtain was pull into place around the cubicle.

"Come on," Matt said, clapping his partner on the shoulder, "lets go fill in the paperwork, then we can talk to the police, maybe they can catch the bastard that did this to him."


Jack Harkness walked out onto the Roald Dahl Plass with his usual swagger, Gwen Cooper following close behind.

"PC Andy, what can Torchwood do for you today?" Jack asked, coming to a stop in front of the Police Officer.

"Jack Harkness, you're under arrest for the attempted murder of Ianto Jones."


Authors Note: Dear Readers, I'm fairly new to this fandom, but since I love slash, it was almost impossible for me to pass by a fandom that parades gays and lesbians so blatantly without remorse or excuse :P Plus one of the only shows I know of that actually has a gay man playing a 'gay' man (or omnisexual as the case may be).

Anyway, I haven't seen all the episodes, (cause Aussie TV is crap) so let me know if I get anything completely wrong.

Please let me know what you think.
