"If there's something weird, and it don't feel good,
Who ya gonna call?
Kaylee laughed at her brother's insanity. He was dancing like crazy, repeating lyrics in wrong orders and often times to different tunes.
"I ain't afraid of no ghosts!" She chimed in.
Leon grinned. "You got ghosts, uh-huh, freaky ghosts, baby! You'd better call!"
"Bustin' makes me feel good!"
Leon, finally somewhat tired from his strange dance moves that could barely be called dancing, collapsed in an undignified heap on the floor, laughing.
"Well, that was fun." Kaylee said, chuckling.
He nodded. "Wanna do it again?" His grin was as wild as ever.
She laughed. "Are you serious? Look at us! We're adults, for crying out loud!" her face grew solemn. "We should start acting our age. Show a little responsibility for once."
He looked at her, and they burst out laughing.
"Ghostbusters!" She cried, on her feet again.
"Done with that." Leon said, disappearing into the other room for a second. When he came back, he had a towel wrapped around his neck- classic 'cape' fashion- and was making whooshing noises. "Superman!"
Kaylee laughed. "And I am living Kryptonite!"
Leon gasped and started running as she chased after him.
"Ack!" he cried as she lashed out towards him. He started to fall to the floor, coughing and hacking.
Kaylee kept laughing until she realized her brother wasn't breathing. Panic filled her eyes. "Leon? Leon!" She knelt down next to him.
His eyes snapped open. "Gotcha!" He started tickling her. "You are so lame."
"Oh yeah?" She demanded, twisting his hands. He gasped in pain.
"Say I'm not lame!"
"You're not, you're not! Ow ow ow!"
She grinned. "Now say uncle!"
"Ouch! Ok, ok, uncle!"
She laughed and let go, only to cry out as he whirled around and started chasing her, bent on revenge.
This behavior continued until the two of them couldn't take it anymore. Still chuckling, Kaylee collapsed on the couch, Leon next to her.
"You're insane." She said breathlessly.
"You just now noticed?" He asked, a wild maniac grin on his face.
She laughed. "Nah, I've known for a long time."
They sat there for a minute, trying to catch their breath. Finally, she spoke up. "When are you going back to Florida?"
He sighed. He'd moved to America a long time ago, and Kaylee was still having a hard time getting used to it. He'd come back a few days ago, but their time had been so filled with relatives and friends visiting that they hadn't really had a chance to just be the brother and sister they were.
"I'm not going back to Florida, sis."
"What?" She whirled to face him.
He nodded. "I'm gonna find some job here, somehow. I can't live there anymore." He shrugged. "It's too hot. Plus, I miss home."
She smiled, leaning into her brother's arms as he wrapped them around her. "Good. I really missed you, big brother."
He grinned. "Missed you too, sis." His expression grew serious. "I'm gonna have to hang out here until I can get somewhere else. I mean, if that's ok with you."
She smiled, looking at him. "Why wouldn't it be, Leon? You're my brother."
He smiled back, though his eyes were distant. "Yeah. That I am."
"I think she knows something's wrong."
Leon was leaning against one of the TARDIS's coral structures. It felt good to just talk to the machine from time to time.
Even if she never really answered.
He sighed. "I mean, she doesn't know it's me, and she's hardly going to guess who she is. But there is something she's aware of. I just wish I knew what."
He sighed, flipping a few of the TARDIS's switches absentmindedly, before plopping down onto the bench.
"Maybe I could erase her memory again. But the risks are too high for that." He sighed. "If only I could just tell her."
The TARDIS remained silent.
Leon sighed deeply. "I mean, she isn't Rose, even if she looks like her, talks like her…" he trailed off.
"Who am I kidding?" He asked at last. "That's Rose. Simple as that." He lowered his head until it hit the TARDIS's console. "But how could this happen? Why is she here now?"
The TARDIS had no answers.
So Leon, who was really The Doctor, sighed and walked out of the door.
Kaylee grinned as Leon entered the room. He sat down next to her with a sigh.
"Rose?" He whispered softly.
"What?" She raised an eyebrow.
"Never mind." He breathed.
The other eyebrow joined the first. She looked at him for a long time. Finally, she shrugged, pushing the incident from her mind.
Even if Leon looked like he was going to cry.
Finally, Leon sighed. "I'm going to bed, k?"
She smiled. "Sure, sure. See you in the morning?"
He nodded and walked off into the other room.
Once inside, he leaned against the door. His hearts sunk as his mind raced.
Desperate to stop thinking about her, he began to walk around the room, snatching up random items and assembling them into something. What it was, he wasn't quite sure of. But he had to do something. Anything! Just so long as it kept his mind off of the girl in the other room.
Kaylee sighed. What was wrong with Leon?
That's not his name. Her mind suddenly rejected the thought that her brother's name was Leon.
She shook her head, trying to clear it. That was… odd.
He's The Doctor. Her mind insisted.
She scoffed at the strange thoughts that had suddenly appeared, filling her mind. Who was called 'The Doctor'?"
No! He was Leon, her older brother!
No. he's called The Doctor. He has two hearts.
What? Now this was just getting strange. The thought of someone, anyone, having two hearts was just… absurd!
You loved him once, Rose.
"That's it!" She shouted out loud. "He's my brother! Of course I love him!" Her eyes narrowed against the invisible opponent. "And my name is Kaylee."
No. You are Rose Tyler.
But Kaylee just shook her head. She'd had enough of this nonsense.
She turned on the TV to avoid the memories that were not her own.
