The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 402: Flawless
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 353: Carrot / Karat at dw100.

Summary: A pretty little gem has caught River’s eye.

A touch over one hundred karats of pure, perfect loveliness… Not huge it’s true, River has seen many far bigger diamonds, not to mention plenty of other equally stunning gemstones, but there are few of this quality in any size, cut with expert precision and without a single flaw.

She thought of stealing it, because if anyone is capable of whisking such a beauty right out of Sotheby’s it’s her, but there’s a definite thrill to walking in through the front doors and simply outbidding everyone else.

The money isn’t hers of course, but nobody else knows that little detail.

The End
