[OOC: The morning after this.]

Jack is wearing a different shirt the next morning, so presumably he changed at some point - but there is no other evidence that he had slept or stopped reading through files at all. But he's in his office as the sun comes up, sitting back in his chair and making scathing notes all over one of Owen's medical writeups. He might feel bad about that at some other time.

Apart from the soft hum of the computers, the rest of the hub is quiet, most of the lights still off.

Ianto wakes up slowly.

It's not the first time he's slept in the Hub, but still it takes a moment to get oriented--couch, desks, lights.

And there is the fuzzy feeling in his head to deal with.

He sits up carefully and takes his time making sure he's steady before even trying to stand.

Ianto trudges through the Hub and up the stairs. In the locker room he's got a change of clothes, and he suspects a shower will help with the fuzzy feeling in his head almost as much as his first cup of coffee.

Which can't come too soon, either.

Ianto sees Jack at his desk and pauses.

He takes a deep breath, and then changes direction to Jack's office door.

"Sir," he says simply. "Anything--anything I should know today?"

"I'm fine, sir." He bows his head a moment. "I'll be better after some coffee.

"I'm sorry about last night. You know how things seem like a good idea until you actually, well, do them."

"Yes, sir," Ianto says quietly. "There won't be a next time."

Ianto nods again. "Yes, sir."

He starts to go, then turns back to Jack. "Is now a good time?"

Ianto sits, and spends a moment fussing with the now-ruined crease in his trousers.

"That's not the first time I've had pot, of course," he says eventually. "Just the first time in a while. I'm finding--" He pauses, takes a breath, "I'm finding myself a bit . . . at sea.

"I've been trying not to let it effect my work but obviously I'm failing."

"I'm not going home and smoking weed every night if that's what you think," Ianto says, a little wearily. "I'm probably drinking too much and not sleeping enough and when I do sleep it's with people I probably shouldn't."

Ianto is quiet a moment.

"Did Tosh tell you what she heard from me through the pendant? She told me. She--she apologized. For not knowing I felt a way I hardly know I feel."

"Yeah," Ianto says quietly. That is like Toshiko.

"Eaten up from the inside by pain," he says with a little nod as if to say, yeah, it's melodramatic and emo and guess what? Also true.

"If I'm carrying that around with me, Jack, how do I--I mean, can a person get over that? Or is it too much to hope for?"

Ianto makes a sound that could be called a laugh if you're being generous. "I know. I know. But knowing it and actually feeling it . . . the only time I don't feel it is when I'm not thinking at all."

"So I'm screwed," Ianto says, his tone exhausted. "Either I lose myself in coping or I just wallow in grief. Good to know."

He pushes himself to his feet. "I need a shower."

"And what do you do, Jack?" Ianto says, eyebrows raised in challenge.

Ianto looks around the Hub and for a moment his eyes look a little damp.

He blinks it away.

"Saving the world," he says quietly. "And isn't being a hero as addicting as anything I'm doing?"

"And what else is it?"

Knowing Jack, it could be anything from his zoo to his fiefdom.

"No," Ianto says, now with curiosity. "I don't."

Ianto's impassive face melts a little into what could be--it's small--almost nonexistent if you don't know what to look for--yes, it actually is a smile.

"Oh," he says simply. "Good."

"Yes, sir," Ianto says, feeling something that resembles cheer himself, and leaves Jack's office.
