Author's Notes: Forgot to mention the Italic typing represents Rose's dream. Thanks for reading! :)
The Doctor smiled slightly. "Quite right to."
Rose sniffed and nodded.
"And if it's my last chance to say it…" He paused.
She looked at him with the all love in her heart and waited to hear the rest of his sentence.
The Doctor took a deep breath and said. "Rose Tyler-"
Suddenly Rose woke up with a start; she sat up in bed in a panic.
It took a minute to remember she was in her bedroom and not Bad Wolf Bay.
She swallowed and rubbed her tear-stained eyes.
Feeling sweaty she went to the window and opened it, letting the cool air soothe her.
She looked up at the night sky and frowned, she was still getting use to seeing zeppelins flying overhead.
Rose caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror, she looked a mess from crying but she didn't care.
It had been a year since that painful moment on Bad Wolf Bay but it still hurt and she desperately missed the Doctor.
Rose pressed her head against the window and wondered when the pain and the tears were going to stop.
She sighed and went back to bed and tried to dream about the happier times she shared with the Doctor.
The next morning Rose was quiet at the table, she could feel her parents and Mickey staring at her.
"Okay, what is it?" She said.
Jackie shook her head. "Nothing you're just awfully quiet."
Rose shrugged. "Sorry."
"Are you ready for your Doctor's appointment, tomorrow?" Pete asked changing the subject.
"What appointment?" Rose said.
"Physical, all new members of Torchwood have to get one." Mickey chimed.
Rose rolled her eyes. "Seriously?"
"Sorry sweetheart but it's got to be done." Pete said.
"Fine what's the Doctor's name?" She grumbled.
"His name is Doctor David Smith." Pete replied.
"Is he single?" Jackie asked.
"Mum!" Rose snapped.
"I'm sorry but it's about time you started dating, again." She said.
Rose shook her head. "No, absolutely not."
"Honey at least try" She begged.
Rose stood from the table. "No, I will not be disloyal to the Doctor."
"Rose-" Pete started to say.
"No!" She yelled and stormed off.
"I'll go talk to her." Mickey said.
Mickey found Rose outside sitting on the steps sulking.
He sat beside her. "How are you?"
Rose just shrugged.
He sighed. "I know you miss him. He was a cool guy, one my best mates but he's not coming back."
"He might." She choked.
"But he can't, it's impossible." Mickey pointed out.
"I'm not dating anyone else." She said.
"You don't have to but you know the Doctor would want you to have a good life, right?" He pointed out.
She nodded. "Yes, I know. I just miss him."
He put his arm around her. "I know but it'll be okay, I promise."
She smiled slightly. "Will you come with me tomorrow?"
"Sure." Mickey smiled.
He helped her up and they went back inside.
The next day Rose was sitting anxiously in the waiting room.
"Would you relax?" Mickey smirked.
"I can't help it. I hate Doctor's offices." She grumbled.
"Do you want this job?" He asked.
"Yes." She replied.
"Then sit still." He said.
Rose playfully stuck out her tongue at him.
A few minutes later a nurse came out and called Rose's name.
She sighed and stood from her chair.
"You going to be okay?" Mickey asked.
"Yeah I think I can handle the old geek." She smirked.
Mickey chuckled and wished her luck.
The nurse led Rose to an examining room.
"The Doctor will see you in a few minutes." She smiled.
"Thanks." Rose replied.
She looked around and shrugged.
It was a typical examining room; nothing special just a couple of degrees and framed children's paintings on the wall.
She sighed and picked up a medical magazine and looked thru it.
She heard the door open but kept reading.
"Hello, I'm Doctor David Smith." A young thick Scottish voice said.
"Hi." She muttered not looking up.
He nodded. "Right and you must be Rose Tyler?"
Something about the way he said her name caught her attention, she glanced up and gasped.
David Smith was an exact clone of the Doctor.
He smiled. "Ah so you do have a face underneath that blond hair, eh?"
She shook her head in disbelief; same hair, face, body, eyes and even smile.
"Something wrong?" He asked.
"W-why do you like him, why?" She whimpered.
"Like who?" He asked.
"This is a trick, right? You don't really look like him." She said shaking.
"Miss Tyler what's wrong?" Doctor Smith asked.
"I want Mickey, now. He's in the waiting room. Get him in here." She demanded.
He nodded and went to find him.
Mickey came in looking worried.
"Rose what's wrong?" He asked.
She glared at him and shoved him. "How could you?"
"What did I do?" Mickey asked.
"This is one of your stupid jokes, isn't?" Rose said.
"What joke?" He said.
"You found some Doctor that looks like him just to annoy me." She accused.
"What are you talking about?" Mickey said.
There was a knock on the door.
"Come in!" Mickey said.
The door opened and Doctor Smith slowly walked in.
"Hi, is everything alright?" He asked.
"Yeah everything's- whoa!" Mickey exclaimed as he saw him enter the room.
"Okay, apparently not." Doctor Smith mumbled.
"I'm sorry it's just you resemble an old friend of ours." He said.
"Mickey he's his damn clone!" Rose exclaimed.
"Look I don't know what's going on but I have other patients." Doctor Smith said.
"I can't do this, yet." Rose whispered.
Mickey nodded. "Um, could we reschedule?"
He nodded. "Sure just check with the receptionist."
Rose smiled slightly and walked past him.
"I'm really sorry." Mickey said.
"It's okay I understand." Doctor Smith smiled.
Mickey thanked him again and left.
On the way home Mickey was silent, it was driving Rose crazy.
"Please say something, already." Rose blurted out.
Mickey shook his head. "I can't believe you did that."
"Okay, I admit I acted stupid." She said.
"Good then you can explain this to Pete and Jackie." He replied.
"I'm sorry." Rose said softly.
"Don't apologize to me tell that to Doctor Smith." Mickey said.
Rose nodded. "You're right."
"He seemed like a really nice bloke." He said.
"Yeah, he did." She agreed.
Rose really regretted her behavior but she was also determine to learn more about the Doctor's unknown twin.
