A Teacher and a Housemaid: Laundry Day

Title: A Teacher and a Housemaid: Laundry Day
Fandom(s): Doctor Who
Characters: Martha Jones
Pairing(s): None
Rating: G
Genre: Adventure
Word Count: 100

Summary: One day a week, Martha does Mr. Smith's laundry. Drabble.


Prompt: #19 White

Master Post





The maid swiped a stray lock of hair out of her eyes, soap dripping down her cheek. She scrubbed the shirt down the washboard five more times before dunking it in the pail of clean water with the others. Swish, squeeze, empty, and pump more icy water. Repeat, at least three more times. On the last rinse, a cupful of bluing. Mr. Smith would get an earful from the headmaster if his shirts weren't shining white.

The week's laundry took her five hours. Martha vowed to never again complain about the laundromat a block away from her apartment.
