My eyes fell on the figure a ways behind the Doctor and I couldn't help but feel a little better. I looked back to him, trying hard not to smile too much.

"Why don't you ask her for yourself?"

He stared at me, confused for the briefest second, before his brown eyes lit up in recognition. His expression stayed blank and impassive but I could see the joy, the happiness, the love in his eyes as he turned around slowly to see Rose grinning at him. Slowly, each step deliberate, he began to step towards her. Rose wasn't as patient and broke out in a full run. Steadily, his foot beats speeded up to a full out run.

I watched the two of them, sprinting towards each other, grinning like fools. The grand moment was just seconds away and it couldn't come soon enough. They would be in each other's arms, they would be reunited. I watched, unable to hold back my smile. I had never seen the Doctor like this… It was a beautiful sight to behold.


And then it all came crashing down to a sudden and harsh end.
