Ten/Rose. This is a very, very belated birthday fic for the wonderful thebadddestwolf. Sorry it’s so late!!
“Ouch,” grumbled the Doctor, as he straightened his posture. His hand moved to his lower back and he groaned a little.
Rose swallowed the bit of toast she was chewing and asked, “You all right?”
He’d been bending down to fetch something out of a cupboard in the galley when he’d felt the twinge. “Yeah. Just…” He rubbed at his back. “I dunno. My back’s killing me.”
"I can help you with that, if you want," Rose offered casually, taking a sip of her tea.
His eyes widened. “I’m sorry?”
"Mum said I was really good at giving back massages. Even tried to get me to go on a course for it, and all that. Too expensive though. Still, luckily Keisha’s aunt was a trained masseuse, so she taught me some stuff for free.” She placed her mug on the table and stood up, walking over to him. “I’ll give you a demo, turn around."
"No, no, it’s okay. I’ll be fine." He cleared his throat. "Thank you, though."
