“Ianto, grab your coat … actually dress warmly, I need you to see this now,” Jack said, rushing in through the cog door.
“What is it?” Gwen asked, ready to grab her own coat. “Do you need me?”
“No, this is something Ianto and I can handle on our own,” Jack told her with a grin, watching the younger man don his scarf, coat and then gloves quickly.
“Ready,” Ianto said,wondering what was so important.
“Great, lets take the scenic route,” Jack grinned, reaching for his lovers hand and hurrying him over to the slab that made the lift up to the roof and pressed the required buttons on his wrist strap the moment they were upon it.
“Why the rush?” Ianto asked, glancing upwards as the roof opened above them and then he spotted what had gotten Jack excited. “Ah, I see, snow.”
“Yeah,” Jack said, the slab coming to a halt. “I love this time, when the snow begins to small for the first time and it's so pure and white.”
“I know,” Ianto said fondly. “so you told me last year. And on Christmas Eve too, so, where are we off to?”
“A stroll along the bay?” Jack suggested, slipping his hand, along with one of Ianto's into his pocket.
“Yep,” Ianto replied happily, walking easily along side the Captain.
“I love the snow, I had never seen it until I came here, to Earth,” Jack said, telling the young man the same story he had the year before.
“I would have thought you would have hated the cold,” Ianto said thoughtfully. “coming from such a hot climate?”
“Which is the very reason I love it so much,” Jack smiled, wiping at a flake of show that had landed on his lovers nose and pressing his warm lips to it briefly. “your nose is freezing!”
Ianto laughed. “It is December Jack, it's Christmas tomorrow.”
“And on that subject, is there something you'd really like?” Jack asked him.
“Nope, nothing at all,” Ianto smiled.
“There must be something?” Jack persisted.
“I have everything I want,” Ianto told him, coming to a stop and causing Jack to too. “you came back to me, that was all I wished for.”
“I said I would,” Jack said quietly, gloved fingers reaching out to stroke softly down the younger man's cheek. “whatever had happened, I knew I would do anything to come back to you.”
Ianto didn't say another word, his lips closed the short distance between his and Jack's and he kissed him softly.
“I love you,” Ianto whispered.
“I know,” Jack responded, wrapping his free arm around his lover and pulling him close while the snow settled around and upon them. “I know.”
With that Jack pressed his lips to his lovers, kissing him softly and first and then deepening it. Ianto's lips parting, desperate for Jack's tongue to slip into his mouth, wanting to taste him. His arm wrapping around the back of the Captain's neck, fingers ruffling the short strands at the base of his neck as they both lost themselves in the heat of the kiss.
When their lips finally parted they were panting softly, their pants escaping their mouths in little white puff while their foreheads rested upon each others.
“You're cold, we should get back,” Jack said somewhat reluctantly.
“I'm fine,” Ianto told him, happy in the Captain's warm embrace. “lets walk a little further and then you can warm me up again later.”
“Well, if you put it that way,” Jack agreed readily, stealing another quick kiss before they untangled themselves from each others arms and continued their walk along the bay.
“Jack, I've been thinking … I was wondering if you would want to move in with me?” Ianto asked, blurting the question out before he could change his mind.
“In with you? Into your flat?” Jack asked, a little surprised.
“It's not something you've thought about?” Ianto frowned.
“No, no, it's not that,” Jack told him reassuringly. “I just thought that in the new year we could look for a place of our own? Maybe a house?”
“A house?” Ianto gasped.
“Yeah, or is that too much too soon?” Jack asked, stopping them in their tracks again.
Ianto grinned. “No, absolutely not,” he told him. “I mean, it's not like you told me you are pregnant!”
“Pregnant?” Jack exclaimed loudly. “I am never doing that again!”
“So you've said,” Ianto laughed. “but just imagine ...”
“Imagine, I don't need to!” Jack snorted. “no way, no babies, me and child birth again, never going to happen!”
“Well, I'm glad that's sorted then,” Ianto smirked. “and now I think we should head back as I am in danger of my nose freezing and falling off.”
With that Jack planted his lips firmly over the younger man's nose and kissed it again.
“Your place or mine?” Jack asked.
“Mine, Gwen can keep a watch on the hub for a while and I want you all to myself,” Ianto answered. “you can help me warm up in the shower and then we can start house hunting.”
“I already have the details for some already,” Jack admitted.
“That's okay, it means we get more time to spend in bed,” Ianto said with a wink, second before Jack dragged him quickly through the thickening snow and towards the taxi rank to waste no time getting home.
