There was one question burning in his mind. It had been sitting there, at the back of his mind, waiting for an opportunity. Now he had a chance.

"How many boyfriends have you had by now, River?" She raised her eyebrows. "Pardon?"

"You heard me. You told me before, you had a couple different blokes hanging around your life. It's a simple enough question."

"Bit domestic, isn't it? To be asking about my love life?"

"Maybe."

"Well, My first boyfriend was a boy from school. My parents thought he was just a study partner. Then when he broke up with me, I started dating his best friend, who was an android. Rubbish, androids. Especially romantically. They try too hard. Then there was the bloke I danced with on my prom night. And then of course there was-"

"Ok, I get the picture! You had a very active social life."

"Are you jealous?"

"What? Me? No, of course not." The Doctor said unconvincingly. River arched her eyebrow at him. He caved. "Maybe a little."

River laughed. The Doctor frowned. "What?"

"Nothing. I just never imagined you as the jealous type." She giggled.


Just a Doctor/River ship. Tell me what you think!
