Drabble: A Dirty Business

Title: A Dirty Business
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Jack’s Coat.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 433: Dirty at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Coat knows getting dirty is part of the job, but that doesn’t mean it has to like it.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Coat drooped. It hated being dirty, but that was just one of the downsides of being in the hero business. You can’t expect to stay spotless when saving the world on a regular basis.

It wasn’t just the normal grime lesser coats had to contend with either, like dust and lint, loose hairs and the effects of air pollution. There was mud and blood, alien spit and slime, gore and entrails, and the crud found in alleyways everywhere, which Coat found it best not to think about too closely.

What it wouldn’t give right now for a shower of rain.

The End
