Lost

The wind howled around the three weary wanderers as they tramped along the snowy path.

With every step they held out vain hope that civilisation would come into sight, yet with every mile that passed the hope grew thinner.

Nine hours now since they found themselves stranded in this vast deserted countryside, their home city gone. The further they walked, the more they discovered that it wasn’t just Cardiff.

Ianto’s GPS told them they should have passed through Newport hours ago, but they hadn’t found anything but more snow-covered moor land. They’d tried heading for the bay, but that hadn’t been there either, more snowy grass all that was found where there used to be sea.

Despite their dwindling hope, they kept walking, stamping their feet against the cold and huddling into their coats.

Worse, the sun was setting, and the temperature had begun to drop even further. The snow had picked up too, and was swirling around them as they crammed close together for warmth.

“I’m beginning to think we’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto,” Ianto joked weakly, his voice wavering as his teeth chattered. “Despite what the GPS says.”

“Me too,” Jack sighed. “But then where are we?”

Just like after 'Stolen', whether I continue or not is entirely down to the prompts (although I do have a vague idea of what is going on now)

I agree, I hope you'll continue this - it's frightening and I really would like to know when/where they are.

I'm actually hoping myself now that prompts come up that will let me continue this, as I have some wonderful ideas where the plot could go...

I hope the prompts allow for more of this ... any idea where is might lead if they do yet?

I hope a fitting prompt comes around, because this idea is addictive.

It's not so much time as the right prompts hehe
(I have promised myself that none of these fics will 'break out' of the challenge as I already have my hands full with 'Guilt')

I sort of have an idea of the overall story now, so if the right prompts come up, more of this will appear...

lol, is it just me or am I the only one giggling at the fact that Jack responded to 'Toto'

I would love to read some more of this^^
I hope the prompts will allow it :)

It's all down to the prompts... I have several possible ideas where this story could go given the chance...

ah... yeah, I've read that a few days ago... now it makes sense that the GPS is still working as it was explained in the first part *lol*

Yes, reading stories in order does tend to help ;)
