Jack looks out over Cardiff. Everything is the same as he remembers it. The smell of the air coming off of the bay, Millenium Center, and everything else. They even rebuilt the water tower.
It had been at least 5 years since he's last been here. He hasn't contacted Gwen or anyone else yet. He doesn't want anyone to know he's here yet. Jack looks down at the bay where the tourist information shop is. He wonders if the hub is still there.
Jack walks up to the door and goes inside. Theres a woman sitting there in her late 20's reading a magazine.
She looks up from her magazine and smiles "How can i help you sir?My names Gracie"
Jack smiles a bit "I was wondering iif a girl named Gwen Cooper worked here?"
"How am I supposed to know?" Gracie tilts her head, "Don't think so." she finally decided.
"You sure? Do you know if she use to work here?" Jack says looking around. The shop hadn't changed much from the last time he was here
"Nope." she sighed, just what she needed; another weirdo asking questions, "No idea if a Gwen..what was it-?..Cooper ever worked here. Sorry mate, I don't keep records." Gracie shut her magazine with a look to the man asking the questions again.
"Does anyone else work here that would know?"
"Umm no." Gracie stated
"Well thanks for the help anyway" Jack says walking out of the tourist shop. He walks over to a payphone and dials gwens number. A voicce operator repeats over and over that this number is out of service. he heads over to the police station to figure out where gwen live. He walks up to the front desk and waits for someone to help him
PC Andy walks by the front desk only to see a man in a long Military styled coat, who seems kinda familer.."Need any help?" he asks the bloke, seeing as no one behind the desk was paying him any mind.
"Ya i was wondering if you could help me look for someone" he says totally knowing that this is andy and not really wanting andy to recognize him till he talks to gwen
"Um, Sure. Spose I could help," he thinks about it for a second, "Missing persons or--What?"
"No i'm just looking for someone i haven't seen in awhile. i can't get ahold of her and have no idea where she lives. Her names Gwen Cooper"
"Gwen is it?" He nods, thinking that he probably knew this guy because she did, "I can help you out there then."
"Thanks." Jack says giving his ever so famous harkness grin
Andy reaches over the desk, grabs a piece of paper and pen, then jots down the information for the guy, "Here you go, What'dya say your name was again-?' he was hoping for an answer, but maybe, and by the looks of this guy Andy really wasn't betting on it, he wouldn't get one.
"Captain Jack Harkness" Jack says not really paying attention to what he's saying. He realises after it's to late
Andy's jaw falls, "You?!" he takes a small step back, "'Course it'd be you. He who ran away, leaving Gwen crying to me and Rhys for nearly a month? Come back to pick up the pieces have ya? Well Good Luck with that."
"This is what i was afraid of happening." Jack mutters "Well at least I came back"
"Yeah well try telling that to Gwen." he nodded once, not sure who he was agreeing with; himself or Jack.
"So are you going to come with me over to Gwen's house or not?"
"Oh no mate, you are alone on this one. Tell Gwen to phone me once she's gotten rid of you yeah?"
"I'll be sure to do that." Jack says with sarcasm in his voice. he grabs the slip of paper and walks out of the police station. He heads over to Gwens new house and knocks on the door
