Chapter Fourteen

"Will you stop?" John asked while pulling Amato to one side and Amato frowned.

"What are you talking about?" he asked.

"Will you stop flirting with Clara," he hissed.


"Have you forgotten how hard you fought to get Peri back while you were in exile? Do you want to toss that all away?"

"No," Amato said while looking at Peri and she smiled at him.

"Then knock it off," John said as he walked away and Amato sighed, looking at his feet. Peri walked over while she nibbled on a Navajo taco and gently nudged him.

"I saw what you were doing," she said and his eyes went wide.

"I am so sorry," he said, giving her a sad puppy look.

"Koschei told me you were a bit of a flirt on your Gallifrey so I will forgive you this one time," Peri said then playfully poked him in the balls with her plastic fork. "Do it again…"

"I get the hint," he said and placed his arm around her.


"Do I get to go to Galliwood, Daddy?" Little Alan asked while sitting on Adam's lap and Adam nibbled on the Navajo taco.

"No, you and Clover are going to stay with Grandma Jackie and Uncle Tony," he said.

"But I want to come," Little Alan said with a pout and Adam looked at Marion for help.

"Mum and Tony are coming with us," she said and he blinked his wide eyes a few times.

"But who's going to look after Clover?"

"She can stay in the TARDIS. Why are you being so shy?"

"I am not shy!" he said with pride. "I'm bloody scared."

"You'll be fine," she said and kissed his cheek. He shrugged then nibbled on the Navajo taco and half closed his eyes. Little Alan looked at him as the Navajo taco slid out of Adam's hand and fell onto the plate.

"Uh-oh," he said and Marion got up and knelt in front of Adam.

"Adam?" she asked and he blinked his eyes then shook his head and looked at her.

"Sorry, Sunshine," he said and slid his arms around Little Alan.

"What did you see, Daddy?" he asked.

"Well, it's a little fuzzy, but I saw me, Rose and Jack on stage. We were singing, but the audience seemed, uh, kind of stiff. Like they were, I don't know, not real?"

"That's weird," Marion said then stood up and looked at Duer and his wife, Frankie.

"Brother, can you come over here for a second?" Marion asked after setting up a privacy block. "Bring Frankie with you."

"Ok," Duer thought as they strolled over and Adam gave his wife an annoyed look.

"What's wrong?" Frankie asked as she knelt down in front of Adam and placed her hand on his right knee.

"Adam had another vision," Marion said.

"Are you ok?" Frankie asked and Adam nodded his head.

"What did you see?" Duer asked.

"Like I told my over-protective wife, Rose, Jack and I were on stage and we were singing. The odd part was the audience seemed…stiff."

"You mean you had bored them to death?" Frankie teased and Adam glared at her.

"No, it was like they weren't real. Now that I think about it, there was this clicking and grinding noise."

"That doesn't sound good," Duer said.

"You sure you weren't hearing feedback from the mikes?" Marion asked.

"That might have been it," Adam said when Alan and Rose walked over and Alan placed his arms on the top of Adam's head and leaned on him. "Get off."

"What's with the serious talk? Planning on sabotaging my wife's performance?" Alan asked and Adam reached up, swatting him off.

"Adam had another vision." Frankie said as she stood up and Rose sat on the chair next to him.

"What did you see?" she asked and he told her. "Are you sure you heard clicking and grinding noises?"

"That's what it sounded like," Adam sighed.

"Hang on," Alan said as he ran off and they looked at each other with confused looks on their faces.


The twelfth Doctor and Clara watched while Jamie and his family played with a football when the twelfth Doctor noticed someone standing near the tree and whoever it was held a wooden staff in his hands. Walking closer, he looked at Hamish when he made a small cough and Hamish looked at him.

"I don't think we've been introduced. I'm the Doctor," he said, holding his hand out.

"Hamish McCrimmon," Hamish said and they shook hands.

"You're Jamie's son?"

"Aye," Hamish said with a nod of his head.

"If you don't mind me asking, what's with the staff?" he asked, pointing to the wooden staff and Hamish smiled.

"I was born blind," he said and the twelfth Doctor's eyes widened.

"You're blind?"

"No, not anymore," Hamish said. "My sight was restored by a good friend."

"I see."

"Tell me, Doctor, what was your Jamie like?"

"He was like your father," Twelve said while looking at Jamie grab hold of Jenna, spin her around and Jamie and Jenna both laughed. "Though he didn't get his mind ripped in half and stuffed into a fob watch. I still don't understand why he isn't dead."

"I don't know. All I know is he seemed so lost."

"Wait, you knew him back then?"

"Aye," Hamish said with a nod of his head.

"Then you were born in the past."

"Aye," Hamish sighed.

"How did you end up here?"

"I was brought forward in time to prevent my death," Hamish said and looked at Lucy talking with Toni and his daughters, Moira and Zoe, were playing with the football. "Not just my death, but those of my wife and daughters."

"It must have been hard, adjusting to all this."

"It was harder when I could finally see," Hamish said as he looked at the sky and thumped the wooden staff on the ground. "It's gotten easier now. When I look around, I find something new to look at."

"Then why do you keep the staff?"

"It reminds me of who I was and what I had to deal with. I also…." Hamish said when he heard someone kick the football then Frazer telling him to look out as Hamish spun around, swirled the wooden staff around in wide circles while the twelfth Doctor got out of the way then Hamish hit the football with the wooden staff and the football soared into the air. Frazer caught the football as he laughed then Hamish looked at the twelfth Doctor and placed the wooden staff over his shoulders. "I can do that."

"Blimey," the twelfth Doctor said and Hamish smiled, tilting his head to one side.


Alan returned with the Doctor and Rain as Adam nibbled on the Navajo taco and Frankie and Duer were playing catch with Little Alan.

"Go on. Tell him." Alan said as Adam sighed and brushed the hair out of his eyes.

"Tell me what?" the Doctor asked, sitting down next to Adam.

"I had a vision," Adam said.

"What did you see?" the Doctor asked.

"We were at Galliwood and Rose, Jack and I were on stage. We were singing, but the audience seemed…stiff. Like they weren't real and there was this grinding and clicking sound."

"That does sound odd."

"I think he's making this up so you'd stop Rose and Jack from going and he'd win by default," Alan said then wagged a finger at Adam. "I'm on to you."

"I don't need to stoop to tricks to win," Adam said with a smug look on his face.

"Oh, yes you would!"

"Stop," the Doctor said, glaring at them and they lowered their heads.

"Sorry," they said together.

"Now, are you sure about what you saw?"

"No, because it was one of those quick ones and I didn't see everything," Adam said.

"Then we'll just have to see what happens when we get there."

"Are Clara and the Doctor coming?"

"Of course," the Doctor said and Alan frowned.

"Just as long as he keeps his lips to himself," Alan said.

"What?" the Doctor asked, looking confused.

"Rose gave him a kiss on the cheek," Adam said.

"And now she had old timer germs," Alan said.

"It was a tiny little peck on the cheek," Adam sighed, rolling his eyes.

"Never mind that," the Doctor said. "We have to go home and pack."

"Aye, aye, Oh Great One," Alan said as he saluted the Doctor then walked off and Adam smiled then shrugged.


The twelfth Doctor and Clara walked along when they heard the sound of wings and Aderyn landed in front of them.

"Hello," she said and Clara looked at her Doctor.

"Hello, Aderyn," he said.

"Where're your mother and father?" Clara asked.

"Oh, there you are," Julie said as she walked closer and looked at the twelfth Doctor and Clara. "Hello."

"Hello," the twelfth Doctor said.

"Mooma, where is Baba?" Aderyn asked.

"He and Jack are over by the hole," Julie said and the twelfth Doctor and Clara walked to the hole. Jack and Koschei looked down as Koschei sighed and rubbed his face with his hands.

"How much dirt is it going to take to fill that?" he asked.

"A lot," Jack said then looked at the twelfth Doctor and Clara. "Hey."

"Do you think there's anything down there?" Clara asked as she carefully looked over the edge of the hole.

"If there is, they're really angry," Jack said.

"Sorry," Koschei shouted while looking down the hole as Clara and the twelfth Doctor laughed and Jack smiled, rolling his eyes.

"Let's go," Jack said as they walked away and Clara took Koschei' hand, wrapping their fingers together
