Chapter 16

When I got to the place where John wanted us to meet, he to make sure that there was no one with me. So he picked up his gun and pointed in my direction. "I'm alone." I said as I walked closer to him.

John was still skeptical, but put his gun down and motioned for me to follow him. "What did Jack say when he found out that you were going to meet me?"

I looked at John straight in the eye. "He wasn't very happy with me. He actually said that he didn't want me to. But with the threat that you gave me, I didn't see where I had much choice."

John started to laugh. "I'm glad to see that you out your family and friends before yourself. Because it makes it all the more fun to destroy that spirit that you have."

"You'll never break me. I'm stronger than you think I am." I said, trying to hide my fear that was building up inside me.

*meanwhile back at the hub*

Jack was starting to go crazy wondering whether or not Sapphire was ok or not. Ianto walked over to his lover and planted a kiss on his cheek. "She is going to be alright."

Jack sat down at his desk and put his head in his hands. "What if she isn't? I told her that she didn't what was going to happen to her. But she was determined to go. I guess she's like me in that regard. I don't know what I'm going to do without her in my life."

Ianto didn't know what to say. He knew that if something did happen to Sapphire, he would never forgive himself; but on the other hand, Jack had taught her how take care of herself. He then left quietly and went to get his lover some coffee to help take the nerve off of their daughter.

As soon as Ianto hit the landing at the bottom of the stairs, Gwen walked over to him. "How's he doing?"

Ianto glanced back up at the office and then back at Gwen "Not too good. If Sapphire doesn't come back soon without a scratch on her, I don't think that Jack is going to be doing very good."

Gwen looked up at the office where her best friend was sitting waiting for his daughter to come back. She stood there for a few minutes before walking to the big cog door. "Ianto, can you stay here with him? I'll be back in a little bit."

Ianto nodded "Of course I can. But where are you going?"

Gwen smiled before she got in the elevator. "I'm going to make that friend of ours happy again!"

Ianto just stood there smiling for a few minutes before getting back to making the coffee for Jack.
