Title: Flying high
Characters: Ianto, Jack
Challenge: 443 - Flying/Flight 443 at tw100
Notes: Ianto has a surprise in store for Jack. A double drabble.
'Why won't you tell me what it is?' Jack complained, crossing his arms as he sat in the passenger seat.
'Because then it wouldn't be a birthday surprise,' Ianto replied, feeling he was stating the obvious.
'Well, can I say the blindfold is a very good start,' Jack grinned beneath it.
'It's not that kind of surprise.'
'Don't sound so disappointed.'
The car finally stopped and Ianto guided Jack out and across a long stretch of concrete, before unveiling the object in front of them. A 1940s Stearman Model 75 biplane.
'She's no fighter jet, but I figure you like the old classics better, anyway.'
'She's beautiful,' Jack said, stroking the taut blue metal skin, and admiring the bright yellow wings. 'I still remember training in these during the war.'
'I thought you might. I did my research on the United States Air Force.'
'Can't be many survived all these years.'
'There aren't. But she's all yours.'
'I don't know what to say.'
'I know you miss flying, so I thought you could take her up wherever you wanted. Might stop you tying to get your kicks from thrashing the SUV.'
'Promise you'll come fly with me?'
