Flowers in the AtticFLOWERS IN THE ATTIC by Mandy Trimm (A Doctor Who One-shot)Flowers in the Attic by MandyTrimm
The little girl lived in a city of metal, built within the space of a vast spaceship. She'd never seen Earth, the home that humanity originated on. She'd never walked in the grass, or looked up into the bright blue sky or touched and smelt a real flower. She spent all her days in the attic of her home dreaming and wondering what it would be like to see a flower in real life.
One day a vase of flowers appeared on her table in the attic. Every week for the rest of her life a new vase of flowers arrived on that same table near her rocking chair by the window. Many times she left her magical visitor notes and once a week that note was replaced with a new bouquet of flowers.
When she had grown older and her time had come for the next adventure she rested herself in the rocker by the window in the attic and waited. A magic blue box appeared deep in the corner of the attic, wind stirring the blanket on the now old woman's lap.
