“That’s good. That’s fantastic,” Jack replies. He stares for a moment, then dips in, places his lips to Ianto’s and keeps it there for a long moment. When he pulls away, he coughs and steps back. “So. What’re your plans now that you’re back? Eating? Sleeping?”
Ianto smiled. He was going to speak when Jack kissed him. A noise of surprise left him and he returned the kiss softly. An amused smile crossed his features as Jack coughed and asked him a few questions. “Dunno. Haven’t really given it thought. I’ve made a lot of tea.” He chuckled.
Hmm. I could probably figure it out for you sometime. I do so like a good mystery.
Thank you, Doctor. I’d appreciate that greatly.
And you are very curious, though. How did you manage this … alive thing or don’t you know? Hmm. Rift? Maybe. Hmm. Vortex energy? Possibly. Regeneration energy from Jack? That’s possible too.
I honestly haven’t the foggiest idea. Wish I knew, it’s bothering me that I don’t. I literally woke up in a field in Cardiff. Something just dragged me out of wherever I was in the afterlife and I woke up alive.
Mmm, no, Jack is a creature of habit despite his age. And yes, very good to meet you finally. Brilliant young man you are.
I’m aware he is, spent a long time tending to his habits. -chuckles, but blushes- Erm…thank you, sir. -scratches the back of his neck- Good to meet you as well.
Well. I could tell you what he did during your absence, but I’m not quite sure you’d want to hear it. He did what … men of our age do best. Run. Try to outrun our past and our mistakes and our ghosts. Unsuccessfully of course, demons tend to chase you around no matter what starsystem you’re on.
Oh. Rambly, right. But yes. No. He hasn’t been working any since … you.
Somehow that doesn’t surprise me. And, well, good…I think.
With the big blue box? Yes, that’d be correct. He doesn’t travel with me anymore. Well. The one from my universe does, but … that’s all timey wimey. Good to see you alive and well, Mister Jones.
Pity. You’d make sure he didn’t work himself to death in my absence.
Thanks. It’s good to be alive and well. Though I’d like to know how.
Ah, yes, Jack’s doctor right? There are quite a few incarnations of you running around.

Ianto Jones. Nice to meet you…?
