Summary: Jack's back ...
Written for day three of the redismycolour Winter Challenge
A/N I found this prompt really really hard and i'm still not sure about this ...
Jack was stood in his office, hands in his trouser pockets looking down into the hub below. They had told him he had been away three months but he knew better, he knew it was a year but he didn't tell them.
They were all angry with him, for leaving them without saying a word and for now he couldn't tell them where he had been and why.
The memories were too fresh and painful, he wondered if they would forgive him anyway. There had been no time to talk, as soon as he had come back he was thrust into the action.
Ianto had agreed to go on a date with him, that was something. If anything he thought he would have been the most angry with him, but apparently that was Gwen from the way she had reacted earlier.
Tosh just seemed happy to have him back, Owen as usual was acting like he didn't give a toss but Jack knew him better than that.
They weren't ignoring him but there was a definite chill in the air, but he could feel it slowly dissipating.
That whole year was like winter, the days dark and long but strangely it seemed now, fleeting. As Ianto walked up towards his office carrying his coffee mug he thought that maybe his winter was finally over and spring was approaching.
