18. The End

3 years later…

       A heavily pregnant River walks down the palace steps and into the meadow behind the palace. She watches as Amelia and Roria talk about boys. Jocelyn and Luke fence…the Doctor plays with the 6-year-old Braxton and four-year-old Aurora Dawn comes running up to River as soon as she sees River. Aurora stretches open her arms and River picks the child up. Aurora buries her face in River’s shoulder.

       The Doctor comes up and kisses his wife. She whispers a question that she’s been asking for three years.

“Where is Missy?” Today the Doctor has a response.

“In Utopia, nearly 4000 light years away. Apparently she’s used her watch to live a normal human life.”

“So, our normal Gallifreyan life will be forever normal.”

“Yes, River. You don’t have to worry about a thing. Our life here on Gallifrey is safe and will forever be. How’s our little time baby?” The Doctor bends down and places a hand on River’s swollen abdomen. She lets Aurora jump down and go run to play with her siblings.

“I can’t believe that the twins are 23, Luke is 22 and Jocelyn is 19. It’s unreal. Our four children are all grown up.” River pulls the Doctor closer to her and their noses touch. She kisses him and he sighs. He’s missed this. He’s loved this woman all his life and he finally has her.

“We’re not done raising our children. We still have one on the way. I guess your necklace didn’t predict the whole future.”

“We still have Brax and Aurora to raise. Don’t forget our newest addition.”

“How can I forget? She’s been kicking all day.” The Doctor eyes his wife’s abdomen and asks.

“She?” River nods and smiles.

“You’re not the only one looking up library database intel.”

“Did it say what we’re going to name her?” River grins and whispers.

“Spoilers.” The Doctor kisses his wife and asks another question.

“Does it say when she’s going to be born?” River doubles over in pain the Doctor realizes she only got out of bed because she knew soon their child would be born. Amelia and Roria scoop up the two younger children and head into their playroom. Luke and Jocelyn help assist the Doctor in helping River up the stairs. The Doctor gets River into the bed and squeezes her hand. He has one final question before River delivers. Two questions.

“River how did you die the first time and should I worry about you dying anytime soon?” River smiles through the pain of another contraction and responds.

“A form of blue cancer called clear cancer. As you remember, Jocelyn had blue flu and you forgot to give me the immunity.”

“I’m sorry. I love you River.”

“I love you too and to answer your second question…as I recall you die before I do.”

“I’m never going to die.” River grins and after she’s done pushing she responds.

“Exactly. I’m never going to die because you’re never going to die.”

       River pushes one last time and Jocelyn holds up her new baby sister, still wet and squirming. Luke hands Jocelyn a pink blanket and Jocelyn puts her sister in her mom’s arms. River eyes Jocelyn and Luke and asks.

“Why are you two in here?” Jocelyn smiles and responds.

“I’ve decided to become an obstetrician. I’m going to take father’s name as the Doctor.” The Doctor smiles and shakes his head. River directs her attention back to their newest addition. She looks up at her husband and asks.

“What do you want to call her? I already know her name but we can alter time.”

“I was thinking Emma Lake.” River smiles and laughs before saying.

“That’s what I wanted to call her. Isn’t she perfect. We have five children. Ocean, brook, sea, rain and now lake.”

“Don’t forget river and pond.”

“Doctor we really must stop naming our children after bodies of water. It’s getting tedious.” He smiles before kissing her.
