At one point, Lilith thought that the Doctor would be subtle when he brought it up.
In hindsight, she should’ve known better.
“Are you aware you’re telepathic?”
Lilith face palmed.
Rose looked up from the book she was reading. “I’m what?”
“Telepathic,” the Doctor repeated.
“Like you and Lilith? Is that possible?”
Lilith nodded. “Highly unlikely, like, ten thousand to one chance, but possible. You’ve been projecting some of your thoughts and feelings and we’ve been picking up on them.” Rose’s eyes widened and she flushed. Lilith chuckled. “Not that kind of stuff, don’t worry, Tyler.”
“So what does this mean, then?”
“It means,” the Doctor said, “that I should teach you how to put up telepathic walls. That way you don’t have to worry about your stray thoughts ending up in another telepath’s head.”
“Or I could teach you how to control your telepathy.” Lilith offered. “So that you can use it when you want to. It comes in handy sometimes. Especially when you’re jeopardy friendly.”
“Like when you get arrested for wearing pink,” Lilith continued, ignoring Rose’s protest. “You could just send out a mental SOS and we’d be there to bust you out in a snap.”
Rose rolled her eyes. “Because I’m the only one who gets arrested.” She looked pointedly at the Doctor, who shrugged.
“Matriarchal planets. It’s not my fault I’m male.”
Lilith laughed. “I think we’ve strayed from the point of this conversation."
Rose thought for a moment. “Yeah, I guess it would be cool to learn telepathy.”
“Um, guys? An alarm is going off!” Jack’s voice yelled.
The Doctor sighed and Lilith laughed. “Later, then, Tyler. Let’s go have some fun.”
