"Stop it."

"Not going to happen."

"Come on. Let's not do this right now," Rose said as she turned around and tried to guide them in another direction. Her attempts were futile as the Doctor kept a firm grip on her hand and stood his ground.

"Frightened?" he asked with a smug grin.

Rose narrowed her eyes slightly, "No."

"Then that's settled then. Let's go," he replied curtly and turned around. When he couldn't move an inch he looked back at Rose. "You are frightened," he stated and his smile died down slightly.

"What do you expect, I've never…" Rose stopped and averted her gaze.

"Done this?" he asked as the grin doubled in size, "Have you done this before? Anything you want to tell me?"

"No, of course not. Do you think I would hide something like that from you?" Rose remarked as she took a step towards him in an intimidating attempt. The Doctor took her bait and stepped closer to her. This was part of their game. Silly banter.

Letting go of her hand he placed his hands on her shoulders in a comforting manner.

"They're all waiting for us."

"I know," she said with a tid bit of sadness evident in her voice.

"Look," he moved his hands from her shoulders to the sides of her face, "We've gone through lots, yeah?" Rose nodded, "We've got in to problems with Daleks, Davros, and even the Od. Even got through the shock of seeing you again and all that Bad Wolf did to you. In the 253 years that I've known you, are you going to let this get in your way. We came back to do this. Come on…do it for Jackie." The Doctor finished off triumphantly. He knew he'd won.


"Yup. The one and only terrifying Jackie. Right terror that one."

Rose laughed softly and smacked his arm, "Oi!"

"Just telling you the truth. From the first moment I met her. Knew she was trouble. Especially with that whole 'there's a man in my room' thing. Quite frightening…"

Rose cut him off as he began to rant, "Alright…alright. O.K."

The Doctors face broke into the most brilliant smile and he was softly jumping on the balls of his feet. Turning towards the doors in front of him he held out his hand, "Are you ready Mrs. Timelord?"

Rose stepped forward and intertwined her fingers with his, "Original last name."

"Hey. Only one that made sense. I'm a Time Lord," he said as he pointed at himself. Then he pointed at her, "You're a Bad Wolf timey wimey vortex being of the sort."

Rose shook her head and stared the door down. She felt the Doctor kiss her temple in tenderly, "Do you trust me?"

"Without hesitation," she immediately replied.

The Doctor pushed the doors open and the sounds of music and laughter spilled forth. He pulled her through and led her down the short hall. Her nervousness started to disappear as he gave her hand a gentle squeeze.

As they neared the end of the hall the music and laughter increased. Just when they reached the end of the hall the ballroom doors opened and a fuming Jackie barged through. Instead of walking towards them she just stood there with her hands on her hips.

The Doctor stopped a couple yards from Jackie and kept a wary eye on her. And Rose just stood there with her mouth slightly opening as to make an excuse for why they were late.

They both knew why she was as red as a tomato. And as she took a step forward they prepared themselves for the yelling voice of Jackie chastising them for:


'Yup,' they both thought, 'She's definitely mad.'
