The Leaves Are Browner

Jack wrapped up the coffee mug carefully, holding it close as he exited the Hub, heading towards the park.

He looked around. The trees were barer, the leaves browner.

He kept walking until he reached the spot where Ianto had stood that first night, attacking a Weevil, smiling as he introduced himself.

There had been something about him from that first moment, something special.

Crouching, Jack cleared away fallen leaves, scrabbling until he had a hole big enough.

“Goodbye, Ianto, you’ll never know how I’ll miss you,” he whispered, burying the beloved mug as he wished he could its owner.

Oh my, why do I read these sad ones just before bedtime. Sniffles---. Very nice imagery in a short amount of words.

Adorable. I love the ceremonial buring of the mug. No one else (and no one else's coffee) could live up to it.

Yeah, Ianto's coffee was an important facet of him, so Jack chose the coffee mug as something suitably sentimental and representative of the man himself.

Made the mistake of reading gingerlr's fic and then yours straight after. Yours sent me over the edge - pass the tissues.
As someone who has just delurked after many months I'd just like to say how much I enjoyed Brokeback Manor.

I *wanted* to write fluff, but it just wasn't happening...

Glad you enjoyed this and BM.
