Hello my lovely lovely readers!
Here's Chapter 3 for you all! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who reviewed! It makes my day!
PS I don't own anything. Except for this story. I own that.
"It's nice to see you, too, Doctor," I say. There are butterflies in my stomach, but I'm calling on my acting skills to keep my cool. It's really too bad that I can't act. Well, I'm trying.
The Doctor frowns at me. "Why are you shaking?"
Okay, trying and failing.
"You seem more nervous than usual. What's wrong? Has something happened?"
He says all that in about three seconds. At the last sentence, he puts his hands on my shoulders and cranes his neck to look past me.
"No, there's nothing wrong." I sort of shakily giggle at him. I love Eleven so much. This is how he acts on the show. It's awesome for it to be happening right now, with me here.
Oh my god. I'm here. With the Doctor. And he's touching me.
This is more exciting than when I met Brian Holden.
Once the Doctor registers what I said, he looks me in the eyes, hands still on my shoulders. Oh god. Oh god. Oh god. Look at that face.
"Then why are you acting so strange?" He examines my face. I can't help but feel a little self-conscious. I wonder how my eyebrows look.
Actually, he should be more self-conscious about eyebrows.
I'm not sure what he's looking for, but he seems to find it. I can see he's realized something because his eyes go back to mine as he makes an "oh…" noise and his mouth forms the letter.
He steps back from me and looks me up and down. Okay, more self-consciousness. I'm not the skinniest person. This is a little awkward, especially since I'm not really sure exactly what he's doing….
"Where are you?" he asks me.
"Uh… I'm here?"
"No, no, no, not there, I mean in the timeline!"
Oh. He wants to know how many times he's met me, I think. Wait! Am I like River Song? That would be completely insane….
"Oh. I met you in the girls' bathroom this morning. That's all."
"Okay…." He taps his chin (lol his chin) in uncertainty.
"But I know lots about you. From the show."
"Don't worry, I won't say anything. I know I can't tell you."
"Well, yes, that's true. I call the show 'Spoilers'. It's full of them. Also, that other name…. I don't quite like it."
"It's got everyone calling me 'Dr. Who'."
I giggle. I've noticed people calling the Doctor's character "Doctor Who" instead of just "the Doctor" before, especially people who aren't really acquainted with the show. It's a little annoying. (It's also pretty annoying when people overreact to someone saying "Doctor Who" though. But I've got to agree… It's just the Doctor, dude.)
"Have you seen the Tardis yet?" he asks me.
"No," I respond, smiling at him hopefully. The TARDIS. Oh my god. Yay.
"This way, Liz!" he shouts and walks off further into the construction. God, I love it when he says my name.
I run off after him and catch up just as I spot the TARDIS parked inside the half-built wing. Something occurs to me.
"Doctor? What's so special about here, about Millbrook High?"
He glances at me, still speed-walking to the TARDIS. "I'm not sure. The Tardis took me here. There's some kind of signal, but I haven't figured it out yet."
"Then why are we leaving?" I ask as we reach the TARDIS and he pushes the door open.
As we walk inside, I gasp. It's even more amazing in person. I've accepted that it's bigger on the inside when I watch the show…. When you're actually there, it's completely different.
We just walked into A TINY BOX. And there's a house on the inside, basically.
"We're not," he says, looking back at me. "AMY!" he yells suddenly. I jump and raise my eyebrows. Seriously, he didn't have to be that loud.
A few moments later, Amy walks out of the doorway at the top of the stairs.
"Geez, Doctor, you don't have to yell," she snaps with that Scottish accent. I love her accent. It's just so… accent-y. "Oh, hey Liz," she says when she notices me.
"Hey Amy Pond," I say with a big smile. Today is so surreal.
"Okay! Pond, if you're ready, we need to track that signal!" He spins around the console and pulls the scanner to him. He only looks at it for about a millisecond (how does he know what he's doing so fast?) before spinning away again and bounding towards the door.
"Come along, Pond, Liz, we've got a world to save!" He stops a moment and looks back at us. "Or something along those lines, I'm sure."
I smile and Amy looks slightly annoyed as we follow the Eleventh Doctor out of the TARDIS and into the still sunny day.
Thanks for reading!
Reviews make my day! So if you have anything to say... leave a review for me! :) I won't even mind if you hate it.
