Incongruity

Gwen poked at her dinner as she listened to the team's usual banter about Jack.

There was still no consensus on his sexuality. Gwen was pretty sure Jack was beyond concepts of straight or gay, but she just couldn't get her head around what that meant without straying into disturbing territory.

When the conversation drifted into Jack's past, Gwen held her tongue. While she knew more the others, there were still so many contradictions that she was lost.

Laughing as Owen stuck his chopsticks up his nose, Gwen realised that Jack was one man you couldn't place in a box.
