I sighed as I walked down the empty streets of Leadworth that led to the church where the wedding was. My long blue dress blew out around me, the lace on the bottom hooking up. I didn't like churches but Rory my best friend, insisted that I went. Seeing as Rory was my only friend I obliged. As I entered the church I forced a smile and walked over to my aunt and Rory. I glanced around the church seeing that I knew most of the people on the Bride's side. Emily, Mary, Jules and Cassia from hight school were there and a bunch of Rory's friends and a few of my aunts friends. I turned my attention to the Groom's side of the church. my eyes came to rest on a man in a tweed jacket and bow tie.
"Who's that?" I asked Rory, pointing to the man.
"Oh. He's John Smith." Rory replied with no interest what so ever. "He's a doctor down at the hospital."
"Doctor Smith." I experimented with the words. They rolled of my tongue easily. I decided that I liked this man. Organ music began to fill the church and everyone rose to their feet. There were gasps as the Bride walked down the aisle. I was un-surprised to fin that she looked beautiful. Mirabell had always been pretty with locks of mahogany hair and bright blue eyes.
The service flew by and before I knew it I was standing in the marque. Rory was a few feet away talking to a group of new friends and my aunt was getting a drink. I decided to find someone that wasn't in conversation with anyone else. The only one left was John Smith. I gulped as I walked over to him. "Hi." I smiled at him and the smile was returned.
"Hello. What's you name." I floundered around in her head for a moment trying to remember.
"Amy. Amy Pond."
"Ah yes. Aren't you friends with Nurse Williams?" he pulled out a seat and I sat down.
"Yes. He talks about me?"
"Oh yes. A lot. It's hard to get him to shut up." I laughed and John seemed to smile at me. "Your Scottish?"
"Yes. Though I live with my aunt because-"
"Your parents died." John finished. "Rory told me." I glared over at Rory who was beckoning to me.
"I have to go." he nodded and smiled as I left. The bell was rang to indicate everyone to find their seats. I sat down opposite my aunt and next to Rory. I paid no attention to the man sitting next to me until he spoke.
"Hello again Amy." I looked up into the face of John smith. On the other side of me Rory rolled his eyes.
"Oh Amy. Who's your friend?" my aunt raised her eyes brows.
"John Smith. I'm a Doctor at the hospital." he replied for me.
"Hospital eh? Well I'm sure we'll be seeing more of you. My family has a tendency to end up there."
John smiled as the room quietened. I payed no attention to the speeches. I was to involved with staring at John's face. He didn't seem to be paying attention either. In facet, what I didn't know was that he was thinking about, and watching from the corner of his eye, me.
I hadn't had chance to speak to John again. Rory had made sure of that by talking to either one of us. "Yeah see you." I waved goodbye to my aunt. Rory opened his mouth to say something to me but was cut off.
"Hey Amy." I turned to look at John.
"Any chance of getting your number out of you?" I smiled and wrote it down. "I'll call you." he waved goodbye and headed towards the parking lot.
"Rory, I can walk home." I was getting fed up of Rory shadowing me all the way home. we had passed his house ages ago.
"I know. I just thought you'd like company." he said as they reached my front door.
"I just want to go to bed Rory. I've had along day." Rory nodded and I shut the door on him. I ran upstairs and plugged my phone into the charger and went to get showered. I checked the phone before I went to bed but there was no change. I sighed and drifted into sleep. My dreams filled with John Smith.
