I know this still isn't my sequel to "Salvation" but I hope you enjoy this story too! I don't think anyone has ever done this, so I really hope you'll read, enjoy and review! :D
The Torchwood van careened down the streets on London.
"What are the readings?" Jack called, risking a glance back as he drove.
"Still off the charts." Gwenn replied from the back.
"What do you think it is Jack?" Martha Jones called, holding on for dear life. She had gotten the call from Torchwood that something massive was going on at the old Torchwood 1 building, Canary Wharf. Luckily, she had been close by, even though she technically worked for UNIT now. Now, they were all rushing towards the Canary Wharf building. When they arrived, they all piled out of the van and stared up at the building. The site of so much tragedy. Jack and Martha in particular couldn't help but think about Rose, trapped on her parallel world.
"Right." Jack said, breaking the moment. "Let's get our fear and find out what's going on." As they began to unload the van, suddenly a small green car came racing up. They all turned to look as it squealed to a stop.
"Great. Torchwood's already here." Sarah-Jane Smith muttered under her breath as she got out of the car.
"I'm sorry Ma'am" Jack said, moving to intersect her. "This is private property. I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to leave." Sarah-Jane looked up at him.
"I'm Sarah-Jane Smith. And unless you're blind, you've been picking up the same readings from this building that I have. And if I'm not mistaken you're Torchwood 3, which means you're far away from home, which means this must be very important. So may I suggest we stop standing about out here, and go see what's going on?" And with that, Sarah-Jane turned and walked towards the building. Jack watched her go with a smile, than ran to catch up with her and offered her his hand.
"Captain Jack Harkness." He said. "I've been following your work. Nice job with the Slitheen." Sarah-Jane shook his hand.
"Yeah? Well, I've been staying away from you lot. Too many guns." She said, with a hint of disapproval in her voice.
"Well, may I still say, looking good ma'am?" Jack flirted.
"Not now Jack." Martha said, pushing pas the two of them. "We have a job to do."
"That's Martha Jones." Jack informed Sarah-Jane as they began walking again. "She traveled with The Doctor after Rose…left." Jack trailed off and there was silence as they both looked up at the building. Mr. Smith had gotten hold of surveillance footage from that day and shown it to Sarah-Jane.
"I met her once." Sarah-Jane said, then at Jack's confused look, clarified. "Rose, I mean. She and The Doctor were at a school that I was investigating. That was the first time I'd seen him oh, about 30 years. We both acted a bit silly at first, but I became quite fond of her. She obviously made The Doctor happy." Jack nodded. He missed Rose too. Sarah-Jane shook her head to clear it.
"Anyways. Come on." She said, moving to catch up to the rest of the Torchwood team who were currently walking ahead of them, and Jack followed her. They were at the door, ready to go in, when suddenly they all froze as they heard a very familiar wheezing sound. They whirled as one, and stared as the TARDIS materialized. The door opened, and The Doctor stuck his head out, his face emotionless, but the pain clear in his eyes. For the man who kept running, never daring to look back, to visit the place where his world had been shattered was practically unbearable. And yet, here he was. He stepped out of the TARDIS, followed closely by Donna.
"Hey," she said, placing a hand on his arm. "You alright?"
"I'm always alright." He told her, and then walked over to join the group.
So… What do you think? It's a bit angsty here in the beginning, but I promise you it'll have a happy ending! Cause I love happy endings!
