‘Course it matters! *She shook her head* Gosh… what is goin’ on with you guys lately..
Text: Oh? Should I be scared?
The Doctor nodded ever so slightly and looked away. Even though she claimed this wasn’t good bye forever, how was he to be certain of that? Worry and paranoia would plague him every single second until she was back..
He wanted to say something, but he couldn’t manage to get any words out. This really was his fault.. he drove her away, and now he had no idea when she’d come back to him. He didn’t even know what he would do when they disappeared back into that TARDIS…
What was he supposed to do now? As pathetic as it seemed, all he could really think of was going back to his TARDIS and crying for an undetermined amount of time. Where no one could see. Not Dawn. Not Liesel. No one. This was only going to make things worse for him. He knew it…
The Doctor gave a small nod to confirm Michelle’s statement, the reminder of the pain seeming to cause it to flare up within him just slightly more. But he fought against it as much as he could, summoning enough strength to continue without faltering. But just before he turned to head back to his TARDIS, he looked to his younger self for another moment, feeling nothing but guilt and remorse for the man. This was all his own doing. All his fault. Tenth was the victim here. The Doctor had driven him to this point, it was no wonder why he had this terrible wound on him now. He didn’t blame the man at all for it. It was simply… Just deserts.
Before another moment could pass, the Doctor had turned, with the help of Michelle, and began making his way back to his TARDIS. He was glad it wasn’t parked too far off, he didn’t know how much longer he could hold out for. He needed to get to the medical bay on his TARDIS. Not to mention, talk this over with Michelle. He knew she was hurting over this, too. There was no way she wouldn’t be.
Just as they reached the TARDIS, he stopped a moment, reaching into his jacket to retrieve his key. He winced lightly at the movement, but was soon unlocking the door and pushing it open. As it opened to reveal the inside, the Doctor looked to Michelle once more, “Only if.. You’re really sure.”
Michelle looked back to the Doctor as Custy worked on opening the door, but looked away from him quickly as they made eye contact for a short second. His expression was heartbreaking, but at least.. she knew he wouldn’t be completely alone… He still had Dawn and Liesel to keep him company..
And this is what needed to be done. She simply couldn’t bear his downward spiral any longer.. if her absence didn’t help him, she didn’t know what would…
She looked back to Custy as he finally spoke and smiled in response, “‘Course I’m sure. We need to get ya to the med bay as quickly as possible, so don’t start doubtin’ me just yet,” she said, hesitating for a moment before stepping forward into his TARDIS.
She was sure to be slow as she helped him inside, finally turning her glance back to the Doctor for only a moment before closing the door.
