4. Thoughts of a Time Lady One
Lilith had insisted Rose sleep a few hours before their next adventure, reminding the Doctor that their companion was human and needed sleep to function. This gave the young Time Lady a chance to reflect on what had happened during their little trip to Platform One.
The memories of bedtime stories about evil trampolines trickled back into her mind. It was an unsettling feeling, but one she knew she had to put up with. If she didn’t, if she asked the Doctor to take her home or left…
Traveling with the man she called her uncle was fantastic. Brilliant. Molto bene. But it wasn’t just the Doctor and Lilith anymore. They had a companion with them on the TARDIS. No more going days without rest, humans need to sleep. No more speaking in only Gallifreyan, Rose didn’t know the language.
Lilith sighed. She knew things were going to end up different. She knew years before that they would eventually pick up Rose. It couldn’t be just the two aliens alone on the TARDIS forever.
Now, in a few hours, they were going to land in Cardiff.
Things were about to get a whole lot more complicated.
