The Time Lords Wife
Fic by (Taylor Twamley) XBlackRoseX
Donna Noble walked through the winter snow, eying her imprints. A sound erupted from the meadow just beyond the hill to her left. She smiled and raced towards it. She stopped for breath at the very tip of the hill. She admired her foggy breath as she tried to re-gain her normal breathing pattern. Her eyes traveled to the blue police box just a few meters away.
Running down the snowy hill she reached the mysterious blue box; her blue and pink floral mitten laying smoothly on it. The doors creaked open and a man stepped out. He wore a blue pin striped suit; his hair lay neatly on his head.
Donna gasped and gazed at this mysterious man.
"Hello there Donna." He smiled his hand searching for her in the cold air. She stared at it for a second or two before grasping it in her own, moving it up and down, smiling at him.
"Hi. How do you know my name?" she asked releasing his hand. He kneeled down so that they were at eye level.
"We-ell, you see Donna I'm a Time Lord. I can Travel through space and time. And guess what?" her smile could not be tamed.
"What?" she asked egger to hear more of this fairy tale.
"In the future you and I are friends. You know when you're a lady." He smiled coyly. Donna hit the man playfully.
"You silly man there's no such thing in time travel." She said sticking her nose in the air. He smiled and stood.
"Are you sure?"
"Yep." She said crossing her arms above her chest. The man opened the doors to the blue box and stepped half way in. he turned his head towards Donna.
"Well maybe if you wait long enough, I might change your mind." He smiled and fully walked in closing the doors behind him. A minute passed and the noise she had heard earlier was sounding off again. She watched in awe as the blue box disappeared.
In amazement she raced home to tell her mom about this. Once home she told her leaving no detail spared. Her mother patted her head and told her not to waste her time with foolish stories. Donna frowned and shouted at her mother. She ran to her room and slammed the door. She lay on her bed, shedding tears.
"He is real." She whispered to her self as she dried her tears. She got up and grabbed her diary that granddad gave to her last Christmas. She wrote what had happened today, everything.
'I saw him today.
She waited for him day after day. She went to the same place everyday for year, he never showed. It was her eighth birthday before she saw him again.
He was sanding at the side of the house, leaning against the white wood. She smiled seeing that he was wearing the same suit as he did when they met.
She walked up and extended her hand to him smiling.
"Hi." He smiled back taking her hand.
"Hello, Donna." He said letting go of her hand and reaching behind his back. Donna's eyes fallowed his hands. He pulled out a small and slim wrapped box.
"Happy eighth birthday Donna." He handed her the box and started to head back to his mysterious blue box.
"Wait!" she half whined. She didn't want to see him leave again.
"Yes?" he smiled at her his face lighting up her spirits.
"Your name, what's you name?" she asked her face growing censure.
"We-ell I really don't have a name, but you can call me the Doctor." with that he walked into the box and once again she heard that funny noise, then he was gone again. She smiled into thin air glancing down at the box.
"Donna?" her mum called. She slipped the box into her yellow dress's pocket. She turned to go back to the party. After the party had ended she headed up to her room to place her presents were they belonged.
Once she knew she was completely alone her hand traveled to her pocket feeling a box like figure. She slipped her hand into her pocket and pulled it out. She slowly undid the wrapping.
She was looking at a red velvet box that was long and slender. Her hand traveled up down feeling the texture of the fabric. She opened it. Her breath was taken away. She sat on her bed her mouth gaping open. There was a note folded up. She pulled it out, unfolded it. Her eyes traveled over the paper.
I hope you like it. I was on the planet flexitorg, shopping for a new dashboard for the TARDIS (blue box). When I saw it, I instantly thought of you. They call it a 'Dragon's Tear'. Hope you like it.
She smiled, her eyes falling on the necklace again. It had a thin silver chain with a turquoise gem in the shape of a tear. She took it out of the box attaching it around her neck. The gem lay on at the very base of her neck line. The stone cooled her flushed skin. Her fingers gently ran over it, as if you were touching a piece of 1000 year old piece of paper.
She looked up at the ceiling smiling, "Thank you." She whispered as she closed her eyes.
Again she didn't see the doctor for another 2 years. She was 10 and was at the playground with a bunch of kids from her school. The boys were playfully picking on the girls; you know chasing them and stuff. Till one boy accidentally got his finger tangled in the thin chain of Donna's necklace. He pulled his hand away and with out knowing it broke it.
Donna crumbled to the ground. She struggled to look for the missing pieces, her tears wetting the sand beneath her legs. Her hand found the cool gem, taking it into her hand frowning as she saw the crack down the middle of it. Her tears began to turn into tears of anger. She stood up both of her hands clenched into fists.
Jimmy walked up to her, "I'm sorry Donna it was an accident." Her head rose from the ground. Her eyes were glazed by tears and filled with mixed emotions. Her right fist went behind her head and landed in his abdomen. He fell to the ground his hands on his chest, gasping for air.
"Donna." A soft voice said behind her. Her breath caught in her throat as she slowly turned around. Her eyes met his.
"Come here we need to talk." His head motioning towards the blue box named the TARDIS. They walked to it, and sat on the cool grass, there backs leaned up against the doors of the box. They sat in silence till Donna spoke.
"I'm sorry." She whispered, her hand still holding onto the cracked gem. He cocked his head and looked at her curiously.
"Because you gave me such a beautiful gift and I went off and broke it." She said as her hand slowly unfolding, to show him the cracked and damaged gem. More tears fell from her eyes as he took the broken gem into his own hand to examine.
He stood up and headed into the TARDIS and shut the doors. She knew he hated her now. About two minutes later he returned with something in his hand. He sat back down next to her.
"Here ya go." He said as he placed the box into her lap. She went to open it when she saw gem lying on her jeans. She picked it up with her left hand as her right held the new box.
"Go on open it, it won't bite." He smiled taking the broken gem into his hand. She opened the box to find the same exact necklace. Her eyes landed on the Doctor.
"Y-you're not mad at me?"
"What? Why would I be?" she looked at the original stone and the crack on it. "Oh because of that, well no I'm not mad. It was accident, so it wasn't your fault." Took the necklace out of the box and fastened it around her neck.
"But how did you know that I was going to break it?"
He smiled. "We-ell I'm a time lord, remember? I can travel through time and space. I traveled here and saw that you broke it and I went to Flexitorg again and bought the same one again, then traveled back here.
"Wow. Are you a Martian? Oh like a Martian man! Time boy? No, oh! Spaceman." She said as they both stood up. He smiled and shook his head.
"No I'm not from Mars. I'm from a planet call Gallifrey. Far, far away. And could you please call me the Doctor."
"Sure thing Spaceman." She laughed he smiled and headed into the TARDIS and closed the doors. Then Donna heard the sound again that told her he was almost gone.
"Doctor," she whispered, "DOCTOR! DOCTOR!" she called, the noise stopped and he popped his head out of the TARDIS.
"Blimey you can shout."
She smiled, "Will I ever see you again?"
He ran his hand through his hair, "Yes."
"Thank you!" she shouted right before he and his blue box disappeared.
That was the last time she saw him till 20 years later.
