Tenth Doctor - Hello


You jumped slightly, the voice taking you off guard. You turned around almost instantly but in that short space of time you recognised the voice.

“Doctor?” You frowned slightly.

“(Y/n)! Hello! Nice to see you again!” He grinned at you, then glanced around. 

“But uh… what are you doing in the cellar?” he glanced pointedly at the wine bottles around you, raising his eyebrows.

“I’m getting more wine. I work here. This is my job.” You take a bottle off the shelf to make a point but quickly put it back when you remember that’s not the one you need.

“You work in a restaurant?’ 

“Well, I do now. I lost my other job because I took the blame for a particular explosion.” Your lips pursed slightly.

The Doctor shook his head, “No, no, no. You didn’t have to do that! I’ve got paper! I could’ve sorted it out.”

“Yeah? Well, you weren’t there to sort it out. You’d disappeared.” You stepped around the thin man with an awkward smile to get the bottle you’d come for.

He made an exasperated groaning sound and grabbed your arm, turning you back to face him.

“Let me make it up to you.” The Doctor said, his expression sincere.

You laughed slightly, “Okay. What does making it up to me involve?”

“Come with me. Anywhere in time and space. I can take you there.”

“You want me to travel with you? In the blue box?”

“Yes of course! I should’ve taken you before but I already had a companion.”

Your heart was pounding. He must have been able to hear it.

“(Y/n), please.”

You looked up at this man, this strange and wonderful man who’d left your life in a tumbling mess. You hadn’t been able to get him out of your head. He was like a itching at the back of your mind. 

“I’d love to.”

He grinned and took your hand in his, “Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant!”

You smile expectantly, waiting for the words.


The Doctor: Clara, Clara, come up.
Come up to me now. You can do it, I know you can.
Clara: How?
The Doctor: Because it’s impossible and you’re my impossible girl. How many times have you saved me, Clara? Just this once, just for the hell of it, let me save you. You have to trust me, Clara, I’m real. Just one more step. Clara! My Clara! Oh!
