Summary: Jack takes Ianto for a walk

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Jack and Ianto walked in silence, heading across sheep covered hills. They had been walking for well over an hour, Jack far away in his own world. Ianto watched him, concerned, but left him to think.

Finally they stopped under a large oak. Jack walked up to it, running his hands over the bark reverently to the point where Ianto almost felt he should give them some privacy – or maybe a room!

"Ianto," whispered Jack, the wind almost snatching his choked voice away. Ianto hurried over, placing a hand on his partner's shoulder. "I want you to meet my family."

Ianto stared at Jack dumbstruck. "Uh, I know you have mixed species DNA, but even you don't have that much wood."

"I planted this tree with the Doctor. He procured the sapling for me. In my time each family had a tree where their remains were scattered when they died. The tree would absorb the nutrients, take a part of each family member into it. This contains the souls of my parents, grand parents and many generations before them." He broke off, rubbing his eyes.

"Hello," whispered Ianto, "I never though I'd get a chance to meet any of you"

Warning...
You should have issued a 'tissue alert' for this one...it's the loveliest Torchwood/Jack story I've read in a long time. And I like this tradition of the Tree. I'm not sure I've seen many of your stories, but if they're anything like this one, I'll keep a box and a good jug of tea to sit back and read... Thank you for putting such a lovely minute in my day.

Re: Warning...
Sorry, I'll be sure to leave a box of tissues nearby in the future

I'm glad you liked it, my uncle had his ashes scattered under a tree, he told his kids that as long as that tree live so would he

I have a back injury that makes typing painful so I can't produce nearly as much as I want to these days

It's a lovely, lovely thing to do. And the tree benefits in many ways, most of all to keep that Spirit alive in a wonderful way. I'm a word processing operator so I do know how you feel; I've got a problem in my right arm that's radiating down to my hand. I know I have a tendency to carry bags on that shoulder but this is bad and I don't have insurance to take care of it yet. The nerves jump far too much to be considered just a pinched nerve.

Boy, if you were able to type more, the stories you could turn out, especially if they're like this one. I hope you can do another soon

Re: warning...
Thank you, I recently bought an xbox 360 controller I'm hoping to use to get around the onscreen keyboard I use sometimes. The angle for holding that doesn't hurt my back so if it works I should be ablr to write more

I'm sorry to hear about your arm, I hope you can get soem help for it soon

Very moving, both that Jack has such a tree, and Ianto's response to it. Lovely take on the prompt. :)
