Starring David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor & Alex Kingston as Professor River Song.
Chapter One: Meeting River for the second time
By Nathan Mullins
And so the TARDIS zoomed through the space, time vortex, to River Island, in the River Nebula, in the ocean district in deep space.
There, River was waiting for him, and the Doctor's other selves wished him all the very best, on his next all important adventure!
"Wonder why you want me to go in search of River when I've only just gone and left her?" asked the tenth Doctor, talking to his seventh incarnation.
"She's not telling you something Doctor. She kissed you and left you for dead! She smiles when really she fails to answer your questions! There's something amiss, and you need to get to the bottom of it!"
The Seventh Doctor's module on the tenth Doctor's scanner faded into the everyday Time Lord calculations that often popped up.
Instead however, this time, the digits that did arise informing the Doctor of something having gone wrong, and it was something to do with him having arrived on River Island.
"Bet she's held a reception for me! Would be nice after all, could have a good ol' knees up, celebrating our last adventure!" he said, fetching his coat, and pulling the door handle towards him, as he stepped out into the open, meeting River's gaze.
She was sat in her thrown on the sandy beach, looking all mystical and mysterious, as she very often did. Her hair was dangling just above her shoulders, and she looked happy, which was 'same old' in the Doctor's eyes. The sea beside her was so calm, like the palm trees that swayed over her, shielding the suns glorious rays from her eyes, as she looked upon the Doctor.
On top of the beauty surrounding her, River was seen as someone important here, being fanned by slaves, and guarded by henchmen, and henchwomen.
At once, alerted to the bright blue police box, they marched towards the Doctor, grabbing hold of him, and like bouncers, ready to act on whatever River demanded of them.
"Bring him further in, and pour him a drink. He's been through a lot already, and meeting me for the second time, well… I know wasn't on 'his' to do list!" she teased, already aware of his seventh incarnations suspicions.
"Oh, so if he thinks you're up to something, tell me why I'm guessing you have me brought here to aid you in whatever tickles your fancy?" whispered the Doctor, seated beside her, as if she was Queen, and he was her prince.
"I think Doctor, since when have you trusted me in the first place?" River asked, full aware of the fact the Doctor had put no trust in her whatsoever.
"You think If I were to trust you, we might save whatever it is my other selves have already gone back in time and found out about? River, whatever you're hiding from me, I need to know."
"Spoilers," she insisted.
She turned to her henchmen, and nodded. They acted on her suspicions of the traitor known as the Doctor, and carried him off, to a black crate, a metal container, which would be the Doctors prison until River was ready to come clean, and spill the beans.
