Doctor Who Drabble: A Grain Of Truth

Title: A Grain Of Truth
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: The Tenth Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 148: Urban Legend at dw100.
Spoilers: The Family Of Blood.
Summary: Urban legends usually contain a grain of truth.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

In the Doctor’s vast experience, urban legends usually contain at least a grain of truth. Something nasty lurking in the sewers? Could be an alligator, or a mutant turtle, or maybe just an alien stranded far from home and making the best of a bad situation.

Then there’s the figure in the mirror, the one you catch a glimpse of and think someone’s standing behind you. They’re not.

The Doctor avoids mirrors now, except for once a year. He’s not without compassion; perhaps someday he’ll forgive her. She’s only a child.

Or perhaps she’ll remain where he trapped her. Forever.

The End
