"When's the last time I called you up and asked for anything?" Rhiannon's voice sounded slightly garbled coming across the mobile and echoing in Ianto's ear. It was obvious to him that she was already in the car and on her way down to the dock. He could hear David complaining in the back seat and could just barely make out Mica's tiny voice humming an unrecognizable tune. "They ain't even seen ya since Christmas."
 
"I'm working." Ianto knew arguing with his sister was pointless, but he did so anyway.
 
"You work in a bloody office," she said. "Johnny's out of town or I wouldn't ask. You know that."
 
Ianto let out a sigh and buzzed open the door as Gwen stepped into the 'office'. She gave him a smile and a tiny wave, and she raised her eyebrows at Ianto's unusually disgruntled look. She silently mouthed to him if everything was okay and Ianto nodded, waving towards the passage in assurance that it was fine for her to head down into the Hub.
 
"Are you even listening to me?" Rhiannon continued as Ianto watched Gwen slide passed the passage and disappear from his sight."Ianto?"
 
"What about mum?" he suggested absently.
 
"I'm not driving them to Newport. That's 12 miles out of the way. You want me to take them 12 miles out of the way when I can bring them right down to the Bay?"
 
Ianto leaned his elbows against the desk in front of him as a pair of elderly tourists walked in. "Rhi, I have to go."
 
"What am I supposed to do with the kids?"
 
Ianto looked apologetically at the couple. "Bring them here," he said. The day seemed slow so far. Hopefully it would stay that way. "They can stay here today. Fine."  
 
"Thanks, Ianto," she said, her mood immediately improving. "We'll be there in five minutes."
 
Ianto ended the call and turned his attention to the couple. "Sorry," he apologized and perked up a bit. "How can I help you?"
 
"What a nice young man," the old woman said. Her accent was clearly American "Isn't he a nice young man, Harold?"

Ianto smiled. The man she was with only nodded, looking at Ianto as if he were studying the young Welshman. Ianto felt a cold chill move down his spine and he shook it off.  
 
"We're visiting" she continued. "Our first time."
 
"You'll enjoy your trip to Cardiff," Ianto responded, still shaking off the stares of the elderly man. "What exactly can I help you with?"
 
"A nice restaurant. For a late lunch, maybe dinner. Something fancy."
 
"There is a nice French restaurant, very fancy a bit further down the Bay. Or, if you're looking for something more in local cuisine..."
 
"Oh no" The woman's voice grew sweeter, if that was possible. "French sounds perfect. Just perfect, doesn't it, Harold?"

 Ianto shivered at the man's stares. "Have a nice time." Ianto smiled. He was anxious to get them out before his sister arrived with the kids. The woman seemed fine, but her husband gave him the creeps. He watched the couple exit and he leaned forward once again. He wondered if he had enough time to make coffee.  
 
No sooner had the thought entered his mind that he heard the tiny bell above the door jingle. Mica entered first, eyes glowing bright and blue, just like Ianto's. Her long hair was in pigtails and she wore a smile on her face that couldn't get any wider if she tried. David stood behind her, face turned downward. Ianto learned not to be bothered by this fact. The boy was almost ten. He would have much rather been spending time with his friends than sitting around an office all day. Rhiannon was last in and Ianto's mouth hung open as she entered. In her arms she carried two small overnight bags and a large stuffed pterodactyl which was quite familiar to Ianto.  
 
"What is this?" Ianto asked softly, stepping out from behind his post. Mica jumped into his arms and he held the young girl as she wrapped her arms around his neck.  
 
"Mum says we're having a sleepover." she said excitedly in a tiny squeak of a voice. She leaned closer to his ear and lowered her voice to a whisper. "But it's supposed to be a secret." She pulled back and cupped her hand over her mouth.  
 
"A sleepover." Ianto turned his gaze to Rhiannon. "Really."
 
"If I had said a few days, would you have said yes?" she asked seriously.  
 
"It would have been nice to know," he responded setting Mica back on the floor.
 
"We ain't gotta stay then?" David said hopefully
 
"Hush your mouth!" Rhiannon spat.
 
Ianto dug into the pockets of his trousers and handed both Mica and David some change. "Go out to that machine out front and get something sweet," he said. "And eat it outside?"
 
They both grabbed the coins and ran quickly outside without so much as a word. Rhiannon watched as they reached the machines and Ianto took the opportunity to speak up.
 
"Are you in some sort of trouble?" he asked.
 
"No."
 
Ianto raised his eyebrows. "Would you tell me if you were?"
 
"I ain't in any kinda trouble, Ianto." she said. "I swear." She moved her eyes back out the window and Ianto followed her. "Can you do this for me?" she continued. "Just a few days. Please."
 
Ianto sighed. "Okay."  
 
"Fantastic!" Rhiannon handed him the two bags, which now that they were in Ianto's hands were much larger than he had originally thought. "Red one's David's. Green one's Mica's. They got everything in there that they need." She handed him the pterodactyl, which he knew to be Mica's. "This is Reginald," she said.  
 
"We've met," Ianto said looking hard at the toy which he had gotten Mica when she was about three.  
 
"Mica won't go anywhere without it. And... that's all I think." she stood on her toes and kissed his cheek. "Gotta go. Have I ever told you you're my favorite brother?" She added exiting.
 
"I'm your only brother," he called after her.
 
Rhiannon stopped outside and kissed Mica and David. "Be good for your Uncle Ianto, yeah?" She got behind the wheel of the car and started the ignition. "I'll see you on Friday, loves." The two children waved goodbye as Rhiannon began to pull away.  
 
Ianto called after her. "Friday?!" She beeped the horn and waved out the window. "Rhi! Friday?!" She was already out of sight but Ianto finished softly. "Today's Monday."
 
Mica tugged gently on the leg of Ianto's trousers and Ianto bent over for the little girl to speak quietly in his ear. Her voice was shy. "I have to go." she said. "Real bad."
 
Ianto stood erect once again. "Lovely." he said softly to himself. If this was any indication of what was to come, Ianto wasn't sure he was ready.

Hi! New friend from the meme!

Wow, this is lovely. Well written, I love Rhiannon and the kids, I wish we'd seen more of them in canon and in less grim circumstances.

Looking forward to more!
