"How can an alien artifact be so bloody boring?"
"You could play with Daffyd's toy robot, Owen," Gwen said. "I haven't wrapped it yet."
Tosh couldn't translate the markings on it. "It could say anything. 'May cause drowsiness. Do not bleach.'"
Jack smirked. "Slippery when wet."
"Handle with care," Ianto murmured.
As Jack approached Gwen's desk, the artifact in his hand came to life. Lights flashed, music sounded. He stepped back; the device stilled.
Gwen pulled two small cylinders from her bag. She held them out to Jack. The alien device chimed and sparkled again.
Jack grinned. "Batteries not included."
Rabecka wanted as "characters" a Rift artifact and a battery, and the prompt: "disclaimer".
