Doctor Who Drabble: Out Of Kindness

Title: Out Of Kindness

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Tenth Doctor

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 072: Hidden at dw100.

Spoilers: Human Nature/The Family of Blood

Summary: Hiding from the Family had been an act of kindness, but they misunderstood.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

It wasn’t fear that made him use the chameleon arch to hide himself away among humans. The Family of Blood were dangerous, certainly, but he’d faced far worse enemies and stood firm.

They kept following him though, with their stolen vortex manipulator, and he knew they’d never give up; wherever he went in time or space, they’d be right behind him. Hiding was his only option, but they hadn’t understood. They’d kept hunting him; even hiding hadn’t been enough.

He’d wanted to spare them, but they’d wanted to live forever, and now they would.

Be careful what you wish for.

The End
