How long does it take a women to get dressed? The Tardis had been parked for a good two hours and the Doctor spent 3/4 of that waiting on her. It was getting a bit obscene. How rude of her to make him wait like this. How rude of her to- The doctor's jaw dropped.
Out walked Rose Tyler in a tight little black dress. It ended just short of mid thigh with an open back, had a sweetheart neckline which brought a classy feel to the forbidden skin shown there, went just past quarter sleeves, and was studded with silver pearls along the hem and neckline. Her hair was up, with small curly wisps falling into her face. She had on red pumps that matched the red on her lips, and she smelled like strawberries and chocolate. Rose Tyler was walking class. Rose Tyler was walking sex. And the Doctor was having a hard time distinguishing the two.
Rose giggled at his reaction "Close your mouth. You'll catch flies." Immediately his mouth shut and he gave Rose a dashing smile.
"You look absolutely beautiful. You always do, but tonight, those stars out there are shining just for you Rose Tyler."
"Don't be silly. Those stars are long burnt out by now" she rolled her eyes and walked over to him. "You taught me that."
"you just had to go and ruin my romantic gesture didn't you."
Rose smirked. "Always." She began to circle the doctor "Thin and a little bit foxy. I like it. Very classy doctor. Although I would like to see you in a bow tie sometime. Dresses it up a little more."
The Doctor looked down at his blue suit and rolled his eyes. "Me? In a bow tie? Yeah. Right."
Rose giggled. "what? I think bow ties are cool."
"Remind me to never let you pick out my outfits then." The Doctor offered Rose his arm which she gladly took. "Are you ready to get our boogie on Rose Tyler?"
"Oh you have no idea."
The doctor then escorted Rose out of the Tardis. The planet ground they walked on was a shimmery gold, with patches of Apple grass along the way where large blue lighted trees sprouted. In the distance was a beautiful building where the exterior was made from shattered mirror pieced back together. Loud music could be heard from said building.
"The year is 5,000,000,023. New earth has just blossomed, the last known Pope of planet Siffle has retired, and planet Nosferatu is known for the best parties in the galaxy."
Rose looked at him curiously. "Nosferatu? You mean like the vampire?"
"precisely! Fascinating isn't it? That legends on earth can born from species light years away?"
"You mean these um Aliens, they're... Vampires?" Rose looked somewhat concerned.
"Yes, well no. Not as you know vampires at least. They do have the um-" the doctor began chomping his teeth. "Fangs, but they don't suck on blood, they feed off of our energy."
"Is that? Our we... Safe?"
"Of course Rose! Why do you think they throw so many parties? Heart racing, music bumping, adrenaline thrilling parties! Enough excess energy for everyone! Now, if you would kindly follow me." Rose began to grab his arm once more before he suddenly moved away and began to unlock the Tardis frantically. "Forgot something. Be back in just a moment."and exactly sixty seconds later the doctor returned holding a banana. "Always bring a banana to a party Rose. Bananas are good."
Rose rolled her eyes. "Have plans to snog Madame De Pompadour then?"
"I dunno. We'll see what the evening brings." He smirked and grabbed Rose's arm and they walked towards the mirrored building to the party awaiting them.
Rose couldn't tell if she was tipsy or if all the energy absorbing was having an effect on her. It was a weird planet. As soon they entered the building the Doctor ran off without a word and the Rose began to mingle. The "vampires" had a weird way of doing things. They'd come up to her and sniff her, like they were breathing her in. It tickled Rose. Then they were all smiles and compliments, and every once in a while she'd catch them taking another whiff and she'd feel the same tickle. It was almost as if losing energy was giving her more energy. A giddy sense of energy. Everything was fun and everyone was funny and all she wanted to do was dance.
"Rose I figured it out!" The Doctor ran up to her as if from no where.
Rose laughed at his erratic entrance. "what did you figure out Doctor?"
"What's different about this planet in this universe." He made the chomping motion with his mouth again. "Their fangs are on the sides, not in the front. It was so obvious. How did I miss that?"
"That's what you ditched me for? Well congratulations Doctor. I hope you had fun playing detective!" She looked at his empty hand. "Where's your banana?"
He smiled at her. "I traded it in for a favor." Just then the lights dimmed and a slow melody began to play. "May I have this dance?" The Doctor held his hand out to Rose.
"you traded your banana to get to slow dance with me?" Rose thought this was hilarious, she couldn't stop snickering. She grabbed the Doctor's hand, let him lead her to the dance floor, and wrapped his hands around her waist as they began to sway.
"Well you see Rose, when these um vampires breathe in your energy, they exhale a sort of false pleasure energy if you will. Not real energy, but a substitute that the brain really gets a kick out of. You inhale this and it gives you an almost overwhelming need to well...party. And in return you make more energy for them. This slow dance will give you time to clear your head and recuperate."
"Liar. You just wanted to slow dance with me." Rose gave the Doctor a smug smile.
"That's only partially true. I didn't trade the banana for the slow dance anyways. I traded the banana for the slow dance song request."
"What song reque-"
Just then a man walked up to the microphone. "Okay ladies and gentlemen we're going foreign-retro with a song request from The Doctor dedicated to Rose Tyler. Let's take it back to the year 2013 with 'Just give me a Reason.' By American Earth Artist Pink."
"Listen Rose. Listen to these words. These are the words that sing to me every night."
Rose nodded hesitantly as the song began to play. She wrapped her arms around The Doctor's neck and they began to dance all while memories flooded her mind:
Right from the start
You were a thief
You stole my heart
And I your willing victim
Right then. I'll be off. Unless, ah, I don't know, you could come with me. This box isn't just a London Hoppa, you know. It goes anywhere in the Universe, free of charge.
I let you see the parts of
Me that weren't all that pretty
And with every touch you fixed
You were born in battle, full of blood and anger and revenge. Remind you of someone? That's me, when we first met. And you made me better. Now you can do the same for him.
But he's not you.
He needs you. That's very me.
Now you've been talking
In your sleep, oh, oh
Things you never say to me,
"Doctor" Rose moaned his name.
Tell me that you've had enough
Of our love, our love.
I love him and you're not him. You never will be.
"Rose" The Doctor whispered her name and broke the spell of reminiscing she found herself under. "Tell me, that day in your room, what did you say?"
Rose smiled and a tear fell down her face. "I said Doctor" Rose sniffled.
"Yeah, and how was that sentence gonna end?"
She pulled his face close to hers and whispered in his ear "Doctor I love you."
The Doctor grabbed Rose's face and kissed her passionately. She tangled her hands in his hair and pulled herself close against him as he held her tight.
Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not
Broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love
