Author Note: Hey guys, sorry it took so long to post again, but I've been really busy lately, car hunting for my very first car. YAY! I can't drive yet, but that's besides the point! lol.
"Here we are then, Blon. Your new home!" The Doctor announced brightly as he, Rose and Blon stepped out of the TARDIS onto a soft, spongey planet, just like Blon had described to Rose.
"Thankyou Doctor. I can't tell you how grateful I am," Blon sighed happily.
"Me too. Now you stay out of trouble, alright?"
"Oh don't worry about me Doctor. Rose and I have had a long talk, and we've both agreed on a plan that I intend to stick to from now on."
"Oh yeah, and what's that?" The Doctor asked curiously.
"I'm going to become a sales-slitheen. I'll make hundreds of batches of that antidote and sell it to poor unfortunate beings who happen to have been poisoned."
"Well, I suppose it's better than your previous attempts to make money. At least this time you'll be helping, rather than causing trouble. Good luck with it," the Doctor grinned and held out his hand. Blon shook it and then turned to Rose, who smiled and held out her own hand.
"Bye Rose. Hope you are better soon."
"Bye Blon, and thankyou - again."
They watched as she half jogged over to her cousins, and then they turned and headed back inside the TARDIS. As Rose had expected, Jack was no where in sight, which made her chuckle.
She'd threatened to strangle him with her sling as soon as she didn't need it anymore, because his infuriating singing in the shower kept waking her up every morning. She'd made her threat quite clear, and Jack had obviously taken it quite literally.
"So, you and Blon got on alright then?" The Doctor asked as he went over to the controls and Rose resumed her favourite place by the railings.
"Yeah. And she was serious about that antidote thing too. I convinced her she'd make far more money that way, than if she tried to make and sell energy out of the Earth," Rose replied, feeling chuffed. She'd just saved the Earth from Blon at least...and hopefully any other Slitheen who had the same idea.
Just then, she heard a noise like a cat being strangled and turned to see Jack coming back through to the control room, toweling his hair dry.
"JACK HARKNESS! WHAT DID I TELL YOU!" she yelled and he gave a startled cry, then grinned cheekily. The two started arguing and teasing each other, as the Doctor sent the TARDIS back into the Time Vortex. Then he sat back in his chair and watched as they playfully wound each other up.
"Hey Doc! Tell Rose she's annoying!" Jack called as Rose flicked him on the ear.
"I wouldn't have her any other way!" he called back with his manic grin, and then he was laughing as Jack wrestled Rose (gently) to the floor and began tickling her mercilessly. She shrieked and tried to wriggle out of his grip, but he wouldn't let her go.
Back to normal then the Doctor thought contentedly as Rose scrambled back to her feet and legged it after Jack, who had made a hasty retreat and was now heading up towards the wardrobe.
It won't be long before she's begging to go on another adventure...and knowing her, she'll find even more trouble there...
But, like he'd told Jack, the Doctor wouldn't have Rose any other way.
