Written for day eighteen of the [info]redismycolour Winter Challenge

All the time they were walking home Ianto was thinking how amazing it was that they were returning home from their second date, when Jack had asked him out on a date and he'd agreed he had never really expected it to happen but it did and here they were taking a short cut through the park after a second on their way home from the theatre.

As the leaves, in all their autumnal colours scrunched beneath their feet Ianto slipped his hand into Jack's, the small act feeling so intimate somehow out in the wide open space. As he did so Jack turned to look at him, seeing the smile on Ianto's face.

“Happy?” Jack asked.

“Yep, this is my favourite time of year and you're back to share it with me. Don't you just love the sound the leaves make under your feet as you walk?”

“I never really thought about it.” Jack replied honestly.

Ianto pulled him to a halt and recited a poem.

“Crispy chimes of Autumn, spread out upon natures floor.
The falling greens of spring and summer, now taking on a brown like decor.
Bare bodies stand naked, their bones clanging in the wind.
Hoping to soon be reclothed, by winters cool new offerings.”

“Don't you think it's just perfect for this time of year?” He asked when he'd finished.

“I liked the bit about bare bodies standing naked.” Jack grinned.

“I should have guessed that was the only part you would have taken notice off.”

“No, no, I promise I listened to it all and yes it suits the season well.”

“Makes a change, now, you said something about bare bodies? Maybe we should walk home a little faster?”

“And you try and make out I'm the one with the naughty mind?” Jack chuckled as they picked up their pace towards Ianto's flat.

very good.

That line in the poem stumped me until I realised it was a line about the trees losing its leaves.

Yeah, it's a little odd ...

Thank you :D

I have to admit, on my first reading that's the line that stood out to me too (and then the muses went all introspection-y)

It took all day for something to come to me ... i had the walking through leaves bit in my head but it was finding a way of actually getting it into a fic!

Thank you :D
