"There's five of us now. Mum, dad, Mickey, and the baby."
"You're not," the Doctor said quickly. The tears streaming down Rose's face intensified, but she regain her partial composure quickly, knowing that she only had seconds left with the man she loves.
"I am," she choked out.
"Oh Rose!" the Doctor exclaimed.
"I will never, ever forget you Doctor! And I will make sure this child will know whom his Father is! Just remember that!"
"I will never, ever forget you Rose! It will be the hardest thing I've ever done but I have to carry on."
"I-I-I love you!" Rose stammered between sobs.
"Quite right. And I suppose since it's my last chance to say it, Rose Tyler," The image of the Doctor faded into the beach behind him. Rose was staring into the rocks on Bad Wolf Bay, crying every tear she could produce in that small amount of time. Her hand found her way to her belly, holding it firmly there. That small gesture brought a double-edged sword of emotions over her; first, the realization that she would never, ever see the Doctor again; second, the realization that she would always have a piece of the Doctor.
EIGHT WEEKS LATER…
Rose stood in the mirror, fourteen weeks into her pregnancy; she was just beginning to show. She hadn't told very many, the pain she felt was just too much for that. She had said goodbye to the man she loved, her everything, the Father of her child, the man that showed her the Universe eight short weeks ago to the world, but eight long weeks of emotional turmoil and distress for her. She thought the hardest thing she ever did was passing her exams in her last years of secondary school, but this, this loss had moved all of her petty struggles to the back of her mind.
But she was determined to continue on with her life. Every night she stared at a picture of the Doctor and her, taken after one of their last trips together. It was of them holding hands, laughing, seeming so happy. In fact, they were happy. Rose was sure of it. But on that particular night, she felt a flutter in her stomach. She had felt ones similar to it before, but never as strong, and as, well intense. She immediately slid her hand down to her belly. As she did this, the memories rushed back to her;
"What have you done?" the Doctor questioned.
"I looked into the TARDIS, and the TARDIS looked into me," Rose replied.
"You looked into the Time Vortex, Rose, no one is meant to see that!"
"This is an abomination!" a Daleks screamed, one of them making an attempt to exterminate Rose, but she stuck out her hand quickly and deflected the laser.
"I am the Bad Wolf, I create myself, I take the words and scatter them in time and space, a message to lead myself here."
"Rose you've got to stop this, you've got to stop this now! You've got the entire Time Vortex running through you're head! You're gonna burn!" The Doctor exclaimed frantically.
"I want you safe, my doctor, protected from this force."
"You can't hurt me! I am immortal!" The Dalek Emperor declared.
"You are tiny! I can see the whole of time and space, every single atom of your existence and I divide them!" With a wave of her hand, the Dalek fleet started to fall apart, particle-by-particle. "Everything must come to dust! All things! Everything dies! The Time War ends." Rose proclaimed.
"I will not die. I CANNOT DIE!" The Emperor screamed angrily. The Dalek mothership disintegrated into nothing.
"Rose, you've done it, now stop! You've got to let go!" The Doctor said anxiously
"How can I let go of this? I bring life!" As she said that, Captain Jack Harkness, breathed a large gulp of air, resuscitated by the power of the Time Vortex.
"This is wrong! You can't control life and death!"
"But I can! The sun and the moon, the day and night, but why do they hurt?"
"The power is going to kill you and it's my fault!" The Doctor said with a guilty voice.
"I can see everything. All that is, all that was, all there ever could be."
"That's what I see, all the time! Doesn't it drive you mad?"
"My head!" Rose cried.
"It's killing me!"
"I think you need a doctor," the Doctor retorted. And with that, he leaned in and kissed her, absorbing the Time Vortex that was inside of her. Rose fainted, the Doctor catching her gracefully in his arms. He then blew the Vortex back into the TARDIS.
Rose sat up with a start, her blonde hair whipping about madly. She thought maybe, just maybe, if she could find that part of her, the part that Bad Wolf inhabits in her mind, she could bring the Doctor back to her.
