8. Luke

The Twins’ 1st Birthday

       “Happy Birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday dear Amelia and Roria

Happy birthday to you.” River stands in her husband’s arms and watches as their twins dig into the matching chocolate cakes. Soon, Amelia has cake all over her face and dress. Roria has cake all over her face, pants and shirt. She even has cake in her hair. Both girls stare up at their parents and laugh. River hunches over when she feels the baby kick and the Doctor calms his soon to be new addition with a single hand over his wife’s abdomen.

       The twins finish their cake and so both River and the Doctor take one to give them both a bath. The Doctor scolds Roria and River scolds Amelia. They both laugh.

“Amelia Oceana…look at the mess you made…you sweet little thing. Adorable little girl. Mummy loves you Amelia.” Amelia wraps her cake hands around her mommy’s neck and plants a kiss on River’s cheek. The Doctor gets cake all over him from Roria.

“Roria…Brooke…cake…all over my bowtie. At least you haven’t gotten cake on my fez.” Roria reaches for her father’s fez but gets scolded by her mother.

“Roria…don’t touch your father’s fez. He says fezzes are cool but that’s not going to be the first one I’m going to blow up.”

       Early the next morning as the girls sleep in their room River feels a pain in her abdomen. She punches the Doctor and he wakes up with a scowl.

“What did you do that for?”

“It’s time.” She gets out of bed and painfully walks to the door. The Doctor assists her to the TARDIS and not even ten minutes later is carrying a bundle out the TARDIS door and into the new nursery that had been built on three months before. River stands against the door, still in pain from giving birth but watches as her husband bonds with their newborn son. The little boy has big grey eyes and hair just like the Doctor’s. The Doctor feeds his newborn son his first bottle and River walks in. She watches as the Doctor feeds their son. Finally, the Doctor puts her son in her arms for the first time. The Doctor tickles the little red thing under his chin.

“River…he’s beautiful.”

“Hello Sweetie…I’m your mummy and this is your daddy.”

“River can we call him Luke so I can say ‘Luke, I am your father’”

“Yes, we can but that’s not the line.” The Doctor kisses Luke’s forehead and watches as River breastfeeds him.

“River, what’s his middle name?” She stares at the Doctor for a few minutes and then back down at her son.

“The girls are named after water. Oceana and Brooke. What about Luke Raine. Rain with an E” The Doctor doesn’t really like this name but he’s going to go along with it because it will keep his beautiful wife River happy.

       The Doctor puts Luke into his new cradle and joins his wife at the door. He puts his arms around her waist and she puts her arms around his neck. The pearl necklace still on her neck and her wild hair still as wild as ever. She sweetly asks.

“So, that’s three. Are we going to have one more?”

“I don’t think we can name any more children after bodies of water. We have a River, I don’t want any more Ponds…we have an ocean, we have a brook. We have rain, what else is there?” She kisses him and coyly says.


“That’s my River.” He kisses her again and carries her off to bed. Each day the Doctor hopes that it won’t be the last. He knows one day the time will come, one day the lonely old mad man turned happy will be lonely again. The Doctor checks on his daughter’s. He checks on his son and gets into bed with his wife. He wraps his arms around River, hoping that her next breath won’t be her last.
