12. New Earth

'Well, when I say futuristic Earth, it's actually New Earth' he steps through the door taking a breath in. Clara repeats his actions, and I do the same. I notice a smell of apples in the air.

'What happened to the old Earth?, And why do I smell apples?' I wasn't fully convinced that we actually were in the future, neither that this was called New Earth.

'Well in the year 5.5/Apple/26 which is about five billion years in your future, the sun expanded burning up the Earth and so you clever humans found a new planet with similar gravity and atmosphere in Galaxy M87. This is the year five billion and twenty two, we are in New New York, well it's actually New New New New New New New New New New New New New New New New York, as this is the fifteenth New York built' I stared in awe at the beauty of the future, the hover cars, the gorgeous bright green grass, I was slowly becoming more convinced as every second passed. But he still hadn't answered my second question. I was about to re ask.

'So... the smell of apples' Clara spoke, giving the Doctor a questioning smile.

'Ah yes, well the grass you are standing on is actually apple grass' he bent down picking a small blade before bringing it to his nose, he passed it to Clara then to myself, I warily inhaled the smell, the beautiful scent of apples traveled through my nose, making me smile at the strangeness of it.

'So would you like to have your wonder, or do something else?' he smiles at me as I bring the blade of grass back to his hand, allowing myself to continually inhale it's sweet smells, it takes me a few moments to realize that he is waiting for an answer.

'Well... I don't mean to be rude, but I really want to get home and spend the rest of my birthday with, my fam... the girls and Mrs Leerey, but thanks for the... experience' I smile, hoping they will both understand. 

'Of course, there's always another time that you can come with us' he looks slightly disappointed but, he has an understanding look on his face, he turns not saying anything else, he returns to the TARDIS. Clara gives me a small smile before following in the Doctor's steps, I sigh concerned that I have upset him. I head in after them and softly close the door behind myself, listening to the soft whirring of the TARDIS, confirming we are on our way back to reality, confirming that my small trip to New Earth is almost at an end.
