REVEALING MOMENTS

“Jack, are you... nervous?

“Of course not,” he denied, crossing his arms over his chest defensively.

Ianto knew better. He was an expert on Jack's moods, and this one wasn't even difficult to suss out. The couple was having lunch with Ianto's sister Rhiannon in an hour. That by itself wouldn't cause any worry; they'd done several times before and Jack had quickly won her over with his patented Harkness charm. This time was different. They had agreed to tell her of their engagement.

Ianto would usually be a bundle of nerves himself, but focusing on Jack's needs left him no opportunity to dwell. Indeed, it was reassuring.

“I think it's sweet,” Ianto told him with a smile.

“Yeah?”

“Yeah.”

Jack smiled. “I know it means a lot to you, so... it means a lot to me, too,” he mumbled the last bit.

Ianto stepped up behind his partner and began kneading the taut muscles he found there.

Jack gradually relaxed, lowering his arms and leaning into the deft fingers. “Maybe we should just stay home and...”

Ianto put his hands down. “We'll finish this after we go see my sister.”

Jack tensed up again.
