"Smooth" Dr. Who drabble Cassandra O'Brien Rating-G

Title: Smooth
Fandom: Dr. Who
Character: The Lady Cassandra O'Brien
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011 Day 78. Prompt from dw100: Challenge #345-Secretion. Beta'd by lefaym. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: Her Ladyship reflects.



She’d been beautiful; everybody said so.

And of all the things that men and women and poets and lorry drivers marveled over, none was held in higher esteem than her skin.

Porcelain. Alabaster. Soft. Dewy. Perfect.

Some gauche cosmetics firm had once offered her vast sums to endorse their product and claim it was the source of her flawless complexion. She’d turned them down, insisting that her beauty was all natural.

Now she’s given several life savings to that same company, to keep what’s left of her from drying out.

It would make her cry¸ if she still had tears.
