Doctor/Martha Prompt Three

Title: III.
Pairing: The Doctor/Martha, The Doctor/Astrid
Rating: PG
Word Count: 100
Prompt: 3. This cancels out the hurt
Disclaimer: Belongs to the Beeb, who coincidently also own my soul.

He drowns the knowledge she's gone with another adventure. Throws himself into danger.

It works like this, sometimes. He's terrible at handling loss. Positively rubbish at it.

Astrid arrives. She's nice enough, but all he can think is how she just isn't Martha. Strange, how these things turn about. She kisses him on a falling Titanic and he thinks that it should mean more than it does. He kisses her goodbye and part of him wishes he could kiss the others goodbye, the ones like Martha.

Too much loss.

He needs another adventure. He needs to cancel out the new ache.
