I stood in my bedroom, holding the journal I found in Verity's attic. I was trying to decide whether to ask the Doctor about it. Finally, I decided on a whim and ran for them. They were saying their goodbyes in the living room. Jim stood awkwardly in the corner. After we fetched him from 1827, we explained everything to him. He was in shock at first, but he seems to have gotten over it. Hesitantly, I stepped forward and held out the journal. Shoes's words fell from his lips as he caught sight of the hard leather cover. A sad look came over his eyes as he picked it up and ran a hand over the leather strap holding it together.
"Was this yours?" I asked. He nodded, opening it and looking at the inked pictures.
"Where did you find it?" he asked me.
"Verity Newman's attic," I told him. He nodded again.
"Johanna's great grand-daughter," he said.
"Who was Johanna?" I asked.
"An old friend," he said. Then, he handed the book back to me. "Give it back to Verity." I nodded and accepted the old artifact.
"Well, I guess this is goodbye," I said. He nodded, and I hugged him. "You know, when I said you looked more like a warrior than a doctor, I was wrong." He gave me a doubtful look, and I smiled gently. "You are a doctor. And even doctor's have bad days." He smiled back. And I turned to the Doctor. He gave a smile, and we hugged quickly.
"Are you sure you don't want to come with us?" he asked. I smiled, but shook my head.
"No thanks," I said. "I like my life on Earth. Besides, somebody's always got to be here to make sure you don't screw up." I moved on to Clara, and she gave me a smile.
"I wish we could have gotten to know each other better," she said. "The just wasn't enough time." I grinned.
"Well, we always have the future," I said. She smiled back, and we hugged. I stood back, and watched them go into their separate Tardises. Jenny on my right, and Jim on my left. It was good to know that Gallifrey was still there. And hopefully, someday, the Doctor will figure out how to bring them back. But for now, I was good with my little life here on Earth.
