Prologue: Wolf Moon Rising

Rose laughed along with the Doctor and Jack as they ran for the TARDIS. Kyoto, Japan, in the year 1336 was one of more interesting adventures they'd had so far. It would have been nice to stay a little longer but Jack just couldn't stay out of trouble. So they were on the run again, but at least the last month of awkwardness after the Planet Sarkios was gone. The Doctor was once again holding her hand and pulling her along to make sure she kept up with him and Jack, whose strides were longer; finally the blue police box came into sight.

"All right, Doc, I know you're not happy with me, but just remember it had been your idea."

"Jack, I said distract the man not proposition his wife."

Rose had no idea what either of them were talking about, but she did suspect that it might have something to do with her. It was one of the side effects from the Sarkios misadventure: both the Doctor and Jack had been overly protective.

The only sign that something had gone wrong was Jack finding her locket. Rose had panicked when she first woke up in her room on the TARDIS. She'd had no memory except the trio being in the marketplace then she found her necklace, a present from her dad for her twentieth birthday, missing. She had tried to get information about what had happened, but neither of her companions would talk.

"In we go." The Doctor's northern accent broke into Rose's reflection. All three clamored into the blue police box which was bigger on the inside.

The Doctor was up the ramp and pressing buttons and flicking switches, taking the TARDIS into the time vortex. "Well, that had been fun. Where to next."

Jack and Rose both laughed at the Doctor's eager expression, knowing that another adventure just around the corner.

"Well, why don't you surprise us," Rose suggested, not really caring where they went most of the time just as long as she was with the Doctor and Jack.

The Doctor grinned and started to race around the console. Suddenly the air was energized with blinding light which seeped through the ship walls. Rose faded away followed closely by Jack and finally the Doctor; before any of them knew it, they were transported out of the TARDIS.
