The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 536: Superstition
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 481: Motif at dw100.

Summary: The aliens of this world see to have mistaken Donna for something, or someone, she's not.

Who knew wearing designer labels could cause such a fuss? Honestly, the embroidered motif on Donna’s top was so tiny she was amazed anyone had even noticed it, but someone had, and now…

The Doctor should’ve warned her! He’d been here before; surely he must have known how superstitious these people were, but not one blooming word, not so much as a peep! Well, he’d pay.

The crowd of aliens around her kept growing, holding out their children, their livestock, their tools… Looked like they couldn’t leave until she’d blessed every single one! Talk about a case of mistaken identity!
