After a immensely large portion of chips, two sausages and god knows how many pieces of bread, Rose wondered how the Doctor was still eating. She had to admit, she had missed chips more than she thought- the second the first one hit her lips, she had stuffed the rest down her throat at an impressive speed. But she was full, stuffed, even. And it really was amazing just how much the Doctor had managed to consume in the last hour.
'Are you going to like, ever stop eating?' She laughed, and he looked back up at her, with a mock frown.
'Why, you think I'm gonna get fat?'
'No! I just, well-' She was blushing now, feeling the blood rush to her cheeks, 'I mean like….wont you be sick?'
'Half time lord.' The Doctor said, as if it explained it all. She raised her eyes at him and he rolled his own. 'I'm half time lord, I need food!' He grinned. 'I wont get fat, don't worry. Although maybe I should- I bet I would be a hell of a lot more respected if I gained weight. Hmm. Maybe I would suit-'
'Don't even bother!' Rose laughed, leaning across the table to him and tapping his nose. 'You couldn't even gain weight if you tried, anyway. You're too skinny! It must be natural or something.'
The Doctor looked hurt, 'I could gain weight! I mean, I may have quiet fast metabolism but I bet if I ate quick enough I could gain a couple of pounds!'
'A couple of pounds wouldn't make much difference, Doctor.' Rose smiled and stood up, 'Besides,' She draped on arm around his neck where he was sitting, 'I like you the way you are.'
The Doctor raised his eyebrows, wiggling them and she giggled. He snaked his arms around her waist and pulled her into his lap, making her laugh even more. The Doctor rest his head on her chest, and Rose leant into him, simply beaming and thinking to herself about how many times she had dreamt this would happen. She felt like she was in heaven.
'I love you.'
The Doctor looked up in shock, trying to not look too surprised at her words. He swallowed the lump in his throat, his heart beating rapidly. He loved hearing those words come from her lips.
'I love you too.' He replied, and Rose leant down, kissing him softly on the forehead, resting her lips there for a few moments before pulling back.
They both needed to hear those words.
