IN TWO THOUSAND YEARS
The Sunday afternoon was a little cold. A man with a big coat approached an old grave. His face showed a shadow of sadness.
"Hi, Yan, do you remember me???" Jack tried to swallow the lump in his throat.
"I know I promised you that I will never forget you, even in two thousand years, but as you see, I can be a little coward sometimes." His eyes began to show a few tears.
"I just run away when you died, I couldn't bear it. I had nightmares for years with you dying in my arms and the fact that I couldn't be able to say it back, to tell you how much I loved you." Jack sigh deeply.
"I had some many lovers, male, female, things, whatever, but none of them was like you. That's why I never came back since then. Well, till now. I kept the promise that I made you and I'm here, as you asked me." The tears began to fall over his face.
"I don't know why I had to wait that you were dead to really admit myself you were the love of my life. Maybe that was so human, let the things for when it's too late." He tried to laugh.
"But, well, I'm here now. I just wanna... Oh, I just wanna tell you that you were important to me. I want to apologize for all the things I made to you, I was so selfish. But I think that you always knew, very deep inside you, that I was in love with you, that I loved you." Jack smiled.
"There's another thing I didn't forget, my sweet Yan. Happy birthday, baby!!!" At that moment, Jack felt on his knees and began to cry.
Jack left to mourn, but he continued kneeling near the grave, when he felt a hand on his shoulder, he raised his head and saw a young woman with dark hair and blue eyes, she has a familiar look. She was wearing a black uniform and a red cap.
"Hi!!! You must be Captain Jack Harkness." said the girl.
Jack was a little surprise "How do you know that???"
She smiled "I'm Lory, I'm... how can I say, I'm a great great great granddaughter of Micah, Ianto Jones' niece. I saw a few pictures of you and heard a lot of stories. And that coat, it's one of a kind."
Jack was amazed "But, how???"
The girl sat beside him and smiled "Do you want me to tell you the story."
"Please." Jack nodded.
Lory began to tell the story "When Ianto died, his family was very sad. And then you left the planet and Gwen Williams lost contact with Grandma Rhianon, but she never left to come here, to his brother's tomb. Here he met Captain John Hart..."
Jack gasped "Who???"
Lory looked at him "Yes, he became friend of my Grandma and began to tell her a lot of stories about Ianto, about you..." She blushed a little and turned her gaze "He also planted this flowers, they never die."
Jack noticed the flowers at that moment "They're "Eternal Flames".
Lory nodded "Yes. He told her many stories, about aliens, wars, love... So our family could know about him and about what happened with the 456. John visited Rhianon almost twice a year, but one day he never came back."
Jack remembered how John was killed in a fight in a bar, but didn't want to tell her "Go on." he said instead.
"Torchwood disappeared. UNIT took control of everything. When Grandma Micah grow older, she joined them, Doctor Martha Jones was the leader at that moment, she was your friend." Lory saw him
Jack smiled "A very good friend."
Lory smiled as well "And it became a family tradition that we work there."
"Nice cap." said Jack.
She blushed and saw Ianto's grave "We continue visiting his tomb every year when is his birthday."
Jack sighed "He was a wonderful boy."
Then they heard steps. Jack was amazed, a young boy with deep blue eyes, wonderful butt and a unique nose, but blond hair, came to them. He was also wearing a black uniform and a red cap.
"Hello!!!" said the boy.
Jack and Lory stood.
"Hi!!! This is my brother Kenn. Look who's here, Captain Jack Harkness." Lory introduced them. They talked a little more.
"It's late, we have to go, mom is waiting." said Lory suddenly.
Kenn looked at Jack and flushed "Do you want to come with us???"
Jack felt his heart leap "Yes, thanks."
The three of them watched the grave and said a silent goodbye to Ianto.
"I'll see you again, baby. Sleep well, my love!!!" That was Jack last thought and he turned to go with the brothers.
"There's got to be a morning after
We're moving closer to the shore
I know we'll be there by tomorrow
And we'll escape the darkness
We won't be searching anymore"
