Authoress Note: Welcome to Chapter 8 of The Last of Her Kind. I have all of Season 1 planned out. So it is going to be very much doozy for the rest of the season 1. I am not going to give any spoilers. That would be bad. I can say that there will be jealousy in here at some point. I am not going to say who is jealous. I will leave that up to your minds to figure that out until I get to those points. But I hope that you enjoy this chapter because well there will be some differences in this chapter. I can't wait to get to the Dalek chapters. It's going to be a hard one to write that is for sure. So without further ado Chapter 8. Allons-y!
You Are On Your Own
Rose and Harriet looked on in shock as the creature was shocked. They had to admit that they were very thankful that was happening. At least at that moment they were safe and sound.
"Gwendalyn wake up." Rose shouted to the unconscious black haired woman.
Gwendalyn shot up. "I can hear you know?"
"Sorry, but think that this is the time to escape." Harriet told them.
Gwendalyn looked at the creature. "Yeah ain't going to disagree with you there."
The three women ran out of the room.
"No, wait. They're still in there." Harriet said looking at the two of them. "Emergency protocols. We need them."
"Can't worry about those right now." Gwendalyn said looking over her shoulder at Harriet. "We have to keep moving. Those things will kill us if we don't keep moving." Her hair was messed up and wasn't staying in what she had put it in when she was helping the Doctor with what needed to be done on the Tardis.
The three of them ran away from the Slitheen that were chasing after them.
Gwendalyn stopped; she had to at least try something that would slow them down. Anything. Anything to keep Rose and Harriet safe. It was something that she felt that needed to be done. And done fast. Those things would kill them if they weren't careful. In fact they had almost died beforehand.
"Gwendalyn what are you doing?" Rose shouted behind her. She wasn't about to allow Gwendalyn to do something stupid. She knew that it would make the Doctor upset if something happened to her.
"Just go. I will meet up with you." Gwendalyn said yelling at Rose. She held her hands up and they glowed purple. She used her powers to put up a thin wall of protection. At least buying them some time. But it wasn't strong enough. She just hoped that it was strong enough to hold them off until the Doctor found them. She ran after the two of them catching up to them.
"Hello!" The Doctor said with a cheeky smile causing the Slitheen to look at him instead of chasing after the three women.
"Don't get yourself killed." Gwendalyn shouted to him.
"Same to you." He told her.
"I won't." She said with a wink.
The three of them went into the sitting room.
"Hide!" Rose said, as she quickly hid behind the cabinet.
Harriet hid behind the screen.
Gwendalyn hid behind one of the open doors. She knew that they wouldn't see her because of how the door was opened.
Margaret entered the room. "Oh, such fun. Little human children, where are you? Sweet little humeykins, come to me. Let me kiss you better. Kiss you with my big, green lips."
Gwendalyn tried her best not to gag. Of course that thing would say something like that. She was trying to get them to come out.
Rose moved to hide behind the curtain.
Two more Slitheens entered the room.
Gwendalyn held her breath. This was going to end badly if they didn't get out of there soon.
"My brothers." Margaret said.
"Happy hunting?" Green asked.
"It's wonderful. The more you prolong it, the more they stink."
"Sweat and fear." Asquith said.
"I can smell an old girl. Stale bird and brittle bones." Green said.
Harriet made a face. She wasn't that old yet.
"And a ripe youngster, all hormones and adrenaline. Fresh enough to bend before she snaps." Margaret said.
Rose held her breath. She knew that they would probably try to go after her first since she was the youngest out of the three of them.
"I smell another. Magical about her." Asquith said.
Gwendalyn closed her eyes. He just had to mention her magic in front of Harriet. Harriet didn't know she was an alien yet.
Margaret pulled the curtain back revealing Rose.
"No! Take me first! Take me!" Harriet said jumping in front of Rose.
"How about me?" Gwendalyn said, coming out her hands glowing purple. She wasn't going to use her magic just yet until she was ready to do so. She wanted them to make their choice. She was hoping that they would just leave. But knowing the luck that they had so far there wasn't going to be an easy way out of this. Her blue eyes were narrowed. She had a scowl on her face.
The Doctor burst into the room with a fire extinguisher.
"Really?" Gwendalyn said, eyeing him.
The Doctor shrugged his shoulders and used it on the male spraying him with CO2. "Out, with me!" The Doctor told them.
Rose pulled the curtain down over Margaret.
The Doctor saw Harriet. "Who the hell are you?"
"Hey be nice." Gwendalyn said looking at him.
"Harriet Jones, MP for Flydale North."
"Nice to meet you."
The Doctor sprayed the Slitheen before the four of them ran out of there.
"We need to head to the Cabinet Room." The Doctor told them.
"The Emergency Protocols are in there. They give instructions for aliens." Harriet told them.
"Oh that is just perfect." Gwendalyn said, trying her best to ignore the growing pain that she felt in her head. She didn't even know that she had blood on the side of her head. She was in flight or fight mode.
"Harriet Jones, I like you."
"And I like you too."
"Enough of the sweet talk. We got to get the hell out of here."
They run into the cabinet room.
The Doctor grabbed one of the bottles of alcohol that was in the room. He pressed his sonic against it. "One more move and my sonic device will triplicate the flammability of this alcohol. Whoof, we all go up in smoke. So back off."
"Oh just a brilliant idea." Gwendalyn grumbled. Adding to more deaths that there probably was.
The Slitheen took a step back.
"Right then. Question time. Who exactly are the Slitheen?" The Doctor asked, demanding an answer from the Slitheen that was there.
"They're aliens." Harriet told him.
"Oh brilliant that one." Gwendalyn said, rolling her eyes.
"Yes. I got that, thanks." He said looking at them.
"Who are you two, if not human?" Green asked, looking at the Doctor and Gwendalyn.
"Who's not human?" Harriet asked.
"They're not human." Rose said pointing out the Doctor and Gwendalyn were also aliens.
"They're not human?" Harriet said gasping. She was with two aliens now? Oh her day couldn't have gotten better, but worse.
"Can I have a bit of hush?" The Doctor snapped not even looking back at the two of them.
"Sorry." Harriet said.
"So much of you being nice." Gwendalyn said, shaking her head.
"Not the time." He snapped at Gwendalyn.
"Oh it never is." She snapped back at him. "Always getting into trouble."
"Hush." He told her to snap at her again.
Gwendalyn rolled her eyes. "Fine." She snapped back crossing her arms.
"So, what's the plan?" The Doctor said looking at the Slitheen.
"But he's got a Northern accent and she has an American accent." Harriet said looking at the two of them. How could they be aliens and have accents like that?
"Lots of planets have a north. And she has been living here for a while." Rose told Harriet. She really couldn't explain it any more than that. She didn't really know how to explain it to Harriet other than what she was told by the Doctor himself.
"I said hush." He snapped to the two women who were still talking. He was glad that Gwendalyn had kept silent. But it bothered him that she remained silent. Actually following what he had snapped at her about. He felt bad for snapping at her. "Come on. You've got a spaceship hidden in the North Sea. It's transmitting a signal. You've murdered your way to the top of government. What for, invasion?"He wanted to know the answer that he had been wondering about for a long time now. If it wasn't an invasion then what was it? He was just hoping that it was an invasion and not something else. Something far more worse like killing more humans and wiping out the planet.
"Why would we invade this God-forsaken rock? We aren't like your Mistress there." Asquith said pointing to Gwendalyn.
"I am not his Mistress." Gwendalyn snapped. She hated that word. She was about to launch herself at the Slitheen and probably most likely get killed. Her temper was going to get the best of her if she wasn't careful.
The Doctor put his arm out causing her to stop. "Then something's brought the Slitheen race here. What is it?" He wanted to know why. Whatever it was, it was important.
"The Slitheen race?" Asquith asked.
"Slitheen is not our species. Slitheen is our surname. Jocrassa Fel Fotch Pasameer-Day-Slitheen at your service." Green said.
"So, you're a family." The Doctor said realizing that they were a family.
"A family business."
"Funny how that always happens." Gwendalyn said, shaking her head.
"Then you're out to make a profit. How can you do that on a God-forsaken rock?" The Doctor hated people that were there to make money. It always seemed wherever they went there was always someone who wanted to make money.
"Ah, excuse me? Your device will do what? Triplicate the flammability?" Asquith asked about the sonic.
"Is that what I said?" The Doctor was confused. He had forgotten that he had even said that. After all he was trying to get information out of them. And he had gotten quite a bit out so far.
"You're making it up."
"Ah, well. Nice try. Harriet has a drink. I think you're gonna need it." The Doctor said with a smile.
Harriet clutches the red box closer to her chest. "You pass it to the left first."
"Sorry." He said passing it to Rose.
"Thanks." Rose said softly, taking it from him.
"If he was. I am not. I can make it explode and we will all go up." Gwendalyn said her hands glowing purple again. She was hoping that he wouldn't call her bluff. She just wanted to defuse the situation the best that she could. She didn't want them to call her bluff and actually say that she wasn't going to do it.
"But you wouldn't." Asquith said looking at her.
Gwendalyn held her hands down to her sides. The purple light had stopped. He was right she couldn't bring herself to do it. He had called her bluff.
"Now we can end this hunt with a slaughter." Asquith said looking at them.
"Don't you think we should run?" Rose asked.
"Doctor." Gwendalyn said softly.
The Doctor looked at Gwendalyn and saw the look in her eyes. The fear. A fear that he didn't want to see in her eyes ever again. He had promised to protect her and that was what he was going to do. "Fascinating history, Downing Street. Two thousand years ago, this was marsh land. 1730, it was occupied by a Mister Chicken. He was a nice man. 1796, this was the Cabinet Room. If the Cabinet's in session and in danger, these are about the four most safest walls in the whole of Great Britain. End of lesson."
"You have to go through a history lesson?" Gwendalyn asked him bewildered that he would even do that.
The Doctor lifted a panel and pressed a button.
Metal shutters crashed shut around the windows and doors locking them in the room.
"Installed in 1991. Three inches of steel lining every single wall. They'll never get in." The Doctor said with a small smile knowing he had trapped them. It was the one thing that he didn't want to do, but he did it anyway knowing that they would be safe until they could figure out what was going on.
"And how do we get out?" Rose asked him.
Gwendalyn shook her head. "You didn't think that through, did you?" Gwendalyn demanded. She didn't like feeling trapped. It was much worse than what she had been through in the past.
The Doctor rubbed his head. "No not really. But we are safe for now." He told her softly. His voice soothing trying to keep her calm knowing that he probably had scared her badly trapping them in there with no way out of there.
"And you don't have much time for that."
The Doctor looked at the black haired woman and saw that she was bleeding. "Gwendalyn." Concern was laced through his voice. Anger surged through him and his hearts painfully constricted in his chest. Someone had hurt her. Whoever it was, they were going to pay for what they had done to her.
"What?" She snapped.
He moved close to her. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a handkerchief and pressed it against her head.
"You didn't know you were bleeding did you?" He asked looking into her blue eyes. He was trying to search for the answer.
"Too busy running." She told him as he went to check her wound. "But you trapped us in here with no plan." She said crossing her arms.
"Shut up." He said moving away from her. He didn't like the fact that she had brought that he had no plan since he had stuck them in there with no way out.
Gwendalyn crossed her arms. "Fine. You can figure this out on your own then." She said moving away from him. She held the cloth against her head as she sat down in one of the chairs. She was only hoping that the bleeding would stop soon. She knew that head wounds always bled the most because of where they were at and always looked bad.
Rose walked over to Gwendalyn. "Are you alright?" She was concerned about the black haired woman that was with them.
Gwendalyn looked over at Rose. She didn't know why Rose was asking her if she was alright. After all Gwendalyn really didn't like the blonde because of how much trouble she got into and how many times she had wandered off when the Doctor had told her not to go too far.
The Doctor watched the interaction between Rose and Gwendalyn. He wanted to hear what kind of answer that she would give to Rose. He already knew what she had gone through with the Salem witch trials. Rose didn't. He knew that Gwendalyn didn't want to tell Rose about that.
She laughed lightly. "A little knock wouldn't have done much damage. I've been through a lot worse. Stuff much worse than you could ever think." Gwendalyn shook her head. "Nothing that I am willing to mention really."
"You aren't hurt?" She asked softly. Still fairly concerned about the woman.
"It stings, but it is just a flesh wound really." She told the worrying teenager. "It will heal." She was pushing it off.
The Doctor now found out more information about Gwendalyn. She was going to have to come out sometime. Tell him the truth. He had only gotten half truths from her. He wanted to know more. He moved the young man's body into the small store room where also the late prime minister was as well. "What was his name?" He asked Harriet.
Gwendalyn looked over and she felt bad that the young man had met his death too early. She couldn't stop it from happening because she was knocked out by the Slitheen.
"Who?" Harriet asked.
"This one. The secretary or whatever he was called."
"I don't know. I talk to him. I brought him a cup of coffee. I never asked his name."
"Sorry. Right, what have we got?" He asked moving away from the dead man. "Any terminals, anything?"
Rose shook her head. "No. This place is antique. What I don't get is, when they killed the Prime Minister, why didn't they use him as a disguise?"
"He is too small." Gwendalyn said looking at Rose.
The Doctor nodded his head. "They're big old beasts. They need to fit inside big humans."
"But the Slitheen are about eight feet. How do they fit inside?"
"That's the device around their neck's Compression field. Literally shrinks them down a bit. That's why there's all that gas. It's a big exchange."
"Wish I had a compression field. I could fit a size smaller."
Gwendalyn rolled her eyes. "You are fine the way you are."
"You wear threes." Rose pointed out.
"Alright. I know I am slim." Gwendalyn said placing the cloth down onto the table. She hated the fact that her size was brought up again. She couldn't help it that she was small.
"Excuse me, people are dead. This is not the time for making jokes." Harriet snapped at the two of them.
"Sorry. You get used to this stuff when you're friends with them."
"Well, that's a strange friendship." Harriet said, shaking her head. It was true in her eyes it was indeed a strange friendship.
"Harriet Jones. I've heard that name before. Harriet Jones. You're not famous for anything, are you?" The Doctor asked.
"Rings a bell. Harriet Jones?"
"You aren't going to figure it out now. We have to figure out who those things are before they try to destroy the earth." Gwendalyn said looking at them.
The Doctor nodded his head knowing that was true. There was a good possibility that they would try and destroy the earth.
"Life long backbencher I'm afraid, and a fat lot of use I'm being now. The Protocols are redundant. They list the people who could help and they're all dead downstairs." Harriet said.
"Hasn't it got, like, defence codes and things? Couldn't we just launch a nuclear bomb at them?" Rose asked.
Gwendalyn rolled her eyes.
"You're a very violent young woman." Harriet told the blonde.
"I'm serious. We could."
"Well, there's nothing like that in here. Nuclear strikes do need a release code, yes, but it's kept secret by the United Nations."
"Say that again." The Doctor told her.
"What, about the codes?"
"Anything. All of it."
"Well, the British Isles can't gain access to atomic weapons without a Special Resolution from the UN."
"Like that's never stopped them." Rose said looking at Harrit.
"Exactly, given our past record. And I voted against that, thank you very much. The codes have been taken out of the government's hands and given to the UN. Is that important?"
"More that you realise." Gwendalyn said standing up. She rested her hands against the table. Her head was aching, but she wasn't going to allow it to show. It wouldn't have been right for her to show it. She didn't want anyone to worry about her. Not in the least bit.
"If we only knew what the Slitheen wanted. Listen to me. I'm saying Slitheen as if it's normal."
"What do they want though?" Rose asked.
"Well, they're just one family, so it's not an invasion." The Doctor said.
"Which tells us that is a good thing, but it is also bad." Gwendalyn said looking at the Doctor.
The Doctor nodded his head. "They don't want the Slitheen World. They're out to make money. That means they want to use something. Something here on Earth. Some kind of asset."
"Like what, gold? Oil? Water?" Harriet asked looking at the Doctor.
"You're very good at this."
"Harriet Jones. Why do I know that name?" He questioned himself.
"Don't hurt your brain on it. You got plenty of time to figure that out." Gwendalyn told him as she looked at him. There was no point in him hurting his brain of trying to figure out who she was.
A phone beeps.
Rose pulled out her phone. "Oh that's me."
"But we're sealed off. How did you get a signal?" Harriet asked, confused.
"He zapped it. Superphone."
"Then we can phone for help. You must have contacts."
"Dead downstairs, yeah. And Gwendalyn." He said looking over at the woman with her. "But it isn't much help."
"Plus that Slitheen was right. I wasn't going to use my powers. We have enough war and death in the universe. I don't want to see another war break out." Gwendalyn said looking at Harriet. "Plus he is more of an expert than I am. I am not the greatest expert of the world yet. There are a lot of things that I have forgotten over time."
"It's Mickey." Rose said looking at the Doctor.
"Oh, tell your stupid boyfriend we're busy." The Doctor said rubbing his face in irritation.
"Be nice Doctor." Gwendalyn said looking over at him. "Perhaps he sent her something. What if a Slitheen got out?" She sent a questioning look his way.
"Yeah, he's not so stupid after all." Rose said, showing the phone to Gwendalyn.
Gwendalyn cursed under her breath. "Damn I was hoping that a Slitheen didn't get out, but she is right Mickey was smart. He got a picture of it."
The Doctor closed his eyes. This was not good. Not in the least bit.
Gwendalyn handed the phone back to Rose. "You should call him." She told the blonde haired teenager.
Rose dialed up the phone number to her boyfriend. She paced back and forth as she checked on him. "Is she alright, though? Don't put her on, just tell me."
The Doctor snatched the phone away from Rose. "Is that Ricky? Don't talk, just shut up and go to your computer."
Gwendalyn rolled her eyes. "He could've just asked you."
"I didn't ask for a voice from the peanut gallery."
Gwendalyn scoffed. "Of course. You didn't you are going to get it anyways."
"Mickey the Idiot, I might just choke before I finish these sentences, but, er, I need you."
Gwendalyn gasped. "You need his help that will be the first time you ever said that."
"I told you I don't want to hear it." He snapped at Gwendalyn.
Gwendalyn gave him a cheeky smile. She loved agitating him just a little bit. He usually didn't ask for help and he was asking for help from Rose's boyfriend.
Harriet looked at the two of them. Her eyes going back and forth between the Doctor and Gwendalyn. "Are the two of them married?" She asked Rose.
Rose shook her head. "No, they aren't."
"They act like they are married." Harriet said looking at the blonde haired girl.
"That's how they act around one another." Rose said, shaking her head. She really didn't know why they acted like a married couple. But she found it rather odd because well after the adventures so far she was beginning to like the Doctor. She felt a little anger go through her. What did the Doctor see in Gwendalyn that she didn't have? That was the question. She didn't like the fact that the Doctor was usually more concerned about Gwendalyn, but he promised to protect them both which was something that she knew he would, but it made her curious of what was seen between the two of them. Was there really something going on?
The Doctor plugged the mobile in to the conference phone speaker. "Say again."
"It's asking for the password." Mickey's voice rang out.
"Buffalo. Two F's, one L."
"So what's that website?" Jackie asked.
"All the secret information known to mankind. See, they've known about aliens for years. They just kept us in the dark."
"Mickey, you were born in the dark." The Doctor said.
"Oh, leave him alone." Rose told the Doctor, shooting him a look.
"Thank you. Password again." Mickey said to Rose. He sounded thankful that his girlfriend was standing up for him.
"Just repeat it every time." The Doctor told him.
"There is a reason why everyone was kept in the dark about it. Humans would freak if they knew life outside of their own little world. Hell they burned their own people for things that they didn't understand." Gwendalyn said, shivering a little bit. "This was something that needed to be kept hidden. Or there would be massive world panic. Wouldn't be the ones to put them in that." She shook her head.
"Let's talk about something else." The Doctor said looking at Gwendalyn.
Gwendalyn nodded her head. She didn't want to go into talking about what had happened.
"Big Ben." He tapped his fingers against the table. Why did the Slitheen do that? "Why did the Slitheen go and hit Big Ben?"
"You said to gather the experts, to kill them." Harriet said looking at him.
"That lot would've gathered for a weather balloon. You don't need to crash land in the middle of London."
"The Slitheen are hiding, but then they put the entire planet on Red alert." Rose said looking at the two aliens that were in the room. "What would they do that for?"
"Oh listen to her." Jackie said.
Gwendalyn rolled her eyes.
"At least I am trying." Rose said to her mother.
"Whatever it is." Gwendalyn said looking at Rose. "It isn't good. Putting the earth on Red alert like that..."
"Well, I've got a question, if you don't mind." Jackie said, cutting off Gwendalyn. "Since that man and woman walked into our lives, I have been attacked in the streets. I have had a creature from the pits of hell in my own living room, and my daughter disappeared off the face of the Earth."
"I told you what happened." Rose told her mother.
"I'm talking to them. 'Cos I've seen this life of yours, Doctor and Miss. ANd maybe the two of you get off on it, and maybe you think it's all clever and smart, but you tell me. Just answer me this. Is my daughter safe?"
"Is she safe. Will she always be safe? Can you promise me that? What's the answer."
Gwendalyn looked down at the ground. She knew the life that her and the Doctor lived was dangerous. Bringing Rose into that was well something that she didn't want to bring onto the young teenager. She would never want to bring a young teenager into that life. Hell she was in that life when she got older. She was living that life now. It was no place for a human.
"We're in." Mickey said.
"Now then, on the left at the top, there's a tab, and icon. Little concentric circles. Click on that."
"What is it?" Mickey asked in confusion.
"The Slitheen have got a spaceship in the North Sea and it's transmitting that signal. Now hush, let me work out what it's saying." The Doctor said, trying to get the signal and figure out what was being transmitted.
"They'll have to answer me one day." Jackie said.
"I believe he said hush Mrs. Tyler." Gwendalyn said, trying to figure out what the signal was. They needed to figure it out quickly. She looked at the Doctor. "What do you make out of it?"
"It's some sort of message."
"What's it say?" Rose asked looking at the Doctor.
"Don't know. It's on a loop, keeps repeating."
"Well that's not good. Repeating messages aren't a sign of good." Gwendalyn said sitting down in the chair. She rubbed her face trying to figure out what the hell was going on.
A doorbell rang.
"Hush." The Doctor said.
"That's not me. Go and see who that is." Mickey said.
"It's three o'clock in the morning." Jackie complained.
"Well, go and tell them that." Mickey snapped at her.
"It's beaming out into space, who's it for?" The Doctor muttered.
"Whoever it is for it is just enough that I can't figure it out." Gwendalyn told him.
"It's him! It's the thing, it's the Slipeen!" Jackie said.
"Mickey, I need that signal." The Doctor told him.
"Never mind the signal, get out! Mum, Just get out. Get out." Rose said to them.
"We can't. It's by the front door. Oh, my God, it's unmasking. It's going to kill us."
"There's got to be some way of stopping them. You're supposed to be the expert, think of something. The both of you." Harriet said looking at the both of them.
"We're trying." The Doctor snapped.
"I'll take it on, Jackie. You just run. Don't look back. Just run." Mickey told Jackie.
"That's my mother." Rose said looking at the Doctor.
The Doctor looked at Gwendalyn. "Right."
Gwendalyn nodded her head. She began to think of all the planets that could possibly be those creatures.
"If we're going to find their weaknesses, we need to find out where they're from. Which planet. So judging by their basic shape, that narrows it down." The Doctor said thinking as he goes through the planets in his mind trying to figure out which one it was.
"Five thousand planets within travelling distance Doctor." Gwendalyn said looking at him. "And that is far too many." She shook her head. "Far too many."
The Doctor nodded his head at what Gwendalyn had said. "What else do we know about them? Information!" The Doctor demanded.
"They're green." Rose said.
"Yep, narrows it down."
"Good sense of smell."
"That narrows it down a little bit more." Gwendalyn said.
"They can smell adrenalin."
"Narrows it down." The Doctor said.
"The pig technology." Harriet said.
"That narrows it down to like 200 planets now." Gwendalyn said, shaking her head.
"The spaceship in the Thames, you said slipstream engine?" Rose asked looking at the Doctor.
"Narrows it down." The Doctor said as his and Gwendalyn's brains were trying to narrow everything down.
"It's getting in!" Mickey yelled.
"They hunt like it's a ritual." Rose said.
"Narrows it down."
"50 planets left." Gwendalyn said, crossing her arms.
"Wait a minute. Did you notice? When they fart, if you'll pardon the word, it doesn't just smell like a fart, if you'll pardon the word, it's something else. What is it? It's more like, er…"
"Bad breath." Rose said in realization.
"That's it." Harriet said looking at the blonde haired girl with a smile.
"Calcium decay! Now, that narrows it down!" The Doctor said with a smile.
"Three planets have that." Gwendalyn said walking over to him.
"We're getting there, Mum!"
"Too late." Mickey said.
"Calcium phosphate, Organic calcium. Living calcium. Creatures made out of living calcium. What else? What else? Hyphenated surname. Yes! That narrows it down to one planet. Raxacoricofallapatorius!"
Gwendalyn scrunched her nose. She didn't like creatures from Raxacoricofallapatorius. They were dangerous. Very dangerous. She scolded herself for not remembering who they were.
"Oh, yeah, great. We could write 'em a letter." Mickey said.
"Get into the kitchen!"
"And don't dolly." Gwendalyn said looking at the Doctor.
"My, god, it's going to rip us apart!" Jackie shouted.
"Calm down." Gwendalyn said. "Panicking won't do you any good."
"Calcium, weakened by the compression field. Acetic acid. Vinegar!" The Doctor told them.
"Just like Hannibal!" Harriet said, realizing what he was saying.
"Just like Hannibal. Mickey, have you got any vinegar?"
"How should I know?" Mickey groaned out.
"It's your kitchen."
Gwendalyn looked at the Doctor. "You would really think he would know where things were in his own home."
"Cupboard by the sink, middle shelf." Rose said.
Gwendalyn looked at the blonde. "Well that corrects me. She knows where to look in that boy's place."
The Doctor nodded his head.
"Oh give it here. What do you need?" Jackie asked.
"Anything with vinegar!"
"Gherkins. Yeah, pickled onions. Pickled eggs."
"And you kiss this man?"
"Well… it is his preference isn't it? And it goes for her as well." Gwendalyn said looking over at the Doctor. "Shouldn't bother you of who she kisses."
Rose looked at Gwendalyn and saw that the woman sent a wink her way letting her know that it was fine. Rose smiled a small smile.
A pop is heard.
This is the end of Chapter 8. I hope that you enjoyed this. Now are Gwendalyn and the Doctor acting like a good old married couple or what? I didn't mean to make it like that, but it seemed like it was a good choice for me to do that. After all it is a Doctor Who/OC story. I haven't even come up with a ship name for the two of them. Do you my lovely readers have any shipping names? Also we are three chapters until we find out who Gwendalyn really is. I cannot wait to get to my own chapter that doesn't have anything to do with the actual episodes. I hope that I will be updating very soon. Until next time guys. Much love, 3.
