Chapter Forty Five

"Then what happened?" Hope asked while sitting next to the Doctor on the couch and the Doctor sighed, sipping on the tea.

"Admiral Tresmar contacted his brother and told him what was going on. The king, a very nice man, agreed to make the Earth their spaceport and trading planet and promised that he would take the Shadow Proclamation to court for selling them stolen goods," the Doctor said and placed his feet on the coffee table,

"Did they give back the humans?"

"Yep, most of them," he said, nodding his head.

"Did they agree not to come to this universe?" Rain asked.

"Well…," the Doctor said then sipped on more tea, swallowed and tilted his head back. "Cameron and Nigel broke into their computers and erased their star maps so the only universe they can travel through is their own."

"Sneaky," she said and he grinned, wiggling his eyebrows up and down.

"What happened to the Architect?" Hope asked.

"She was placed in time out," he said and Rain rolled her eyes while Hope giggled.

"Did the humans and the Silurians agree to run the Earth together?" Hope asked.

"Well, it took a little help from me and the Council, but they agreed."

"Are you sure?"

"Yes, because I went forward two hundred years and, not only is the Earth thriving, they are the most popular spaceport and entertainment planet in the universe!" he said with a smug look on his face. "They even rebuilt Disneyworld!"

"Cool. Are we going back to Disneyworld soon? You did promise Faith and me we'd go back after we took our exams."

"I said that?" he asked with a puzzled look on his face.

"Yes, you did!"

"Guess my mind isn't what it used to be. Are you sure?"

"Yes!" Hope shouted while his eyes widened and he placed his hands against his chest then his face went blank and he half closed his eyes.

"And did you pass your exams?" he asked with a cool tone to his voice.

"I don't know. They haven't graded them yet."

"Then we'll have to wait and see," he said as Hope sighed then got off the couch, walked to the stairs and went upstairs. Rain watched her go down the hallway when she got up and walked to the couch, sitting next to the Doctor.

"You know she's not going to rest until you take her somewhere," Rain said as she snuggled closer and the Doctor nodded, placing his arm around her and stroked her hair.

"How long before we learn if she passed or not?"

"A week," she said and the Doctor sighed, rubbing his eyes with his fingers and thumb.

"It's going to be a long week."

(A month later)



The Doctor stood looking at Splash Mountain when he felt someone tap his back and turned to see Rain standing behind him. She had her hair done back in a ponytail and was wearing a white t-shirt with Stitch on the front, denim shorts and brown leather sandals. Faith, Hope, Moira and Aderyn had passed their exams and they had decided to celebrate by going to Disneyworld during Halloween.

"I wouldn't stand there if I were you," she said with a smile and he frowned.

"Why?" he asked.

"Because this is where people get soaked after the logs come down," she said when he took her hand and they took a few steps to the left just as one of the logs came down and a wave of water sprayed over the spot where they were just standing. Smiling, Rain slid her arms around his waist when he looked around, moved closer and kissed her lips. "Where's Hope?"

"There," he said, pointing to Splash Mountain when he thought of something and softly growled. "So that's why she wanted me to stand here."

"Guess so," she said with a smile when she frowned and the Doctor brushed some of her hair behind her ear.

"What's wrong?"

"Are Alan and Adam alright?"


"Haven't you noticed that they're not bugging us to go ride Everest?"

"Uh..." the Doctor said then thought for a few minutes and pouted. "You're right."

"Do you think seeing it in ruins has spoiled it for them?"

"It might, but, knowing those two, they'll find another ride they'll love just as much and start bugging us again."

"That's what I'm afraid of," she said with a grin as they softly laughed and the Doctor wrapped his arms around her, pressing her body against his.


"Look, Baba, it's an elephant," Aderyn said while standing in line for the Dumbo ride and Koschei sweetly smiled at her. He was surprised when the Doctor had invited him, Julie and Aderyn to join them on their holiday and Aderyn wore an imager so she looked like a little girl with a round face, a small nose and grayish blue eyes. She was wearing a pink t-shirt with Minnie Mouse on the front, denim shorts and white sneakers with pink laces. She also wore a pink headband with Minnie Mouse ears on the top and she held Koschei's hand tightly in her hand.

"Yeah, it is. Do you know which one you want to ride on?" he asked while she looked at the elephants and Duer smiled as he held onto Faith's hand. Both of them were happy to see Ol' Blue when Koschei and Aderyn moved by the woman at the entrance and Aderyn smiled, nearly dragging Koschei toward Ol' Blue.

"This one!" she said with a wide smile and Duer looked down at Faith.

"Uh," he said as they walked by the woman at the entrance and Faith led him to the elephant behind Ol' Blue without saying a word. After helping her up into the seat, he sat next to her and Faith placed the seatbelt on. He placed the seatbelt on when the ride started moving and he watched Ol' Blue rise into the air. "You ok, Butterfly?"

"Yeah," she said then pushed the button and the elephant they were riding in rose into the air.

"Are you sure? I know that Ol' Blue's your favorite."

"Daddy, look at Aderyn," she said as he saw Aderyn with her arms in the air and her head back then looked at Faith. "She's having fun, right?"

"Yeah," he said with a nod of his head.

"She wouldn't have fun if I made a fuss, right?"

"Uh, no, I don't think she would have liked that."

"And one thing about being a Time Lady is realizing when it's time to take and when to share. I'm sharing," she said with a smile and Duer wrapped his arm around, drawing her against his side.

"You are going to be an amazing Time Lady," he said and kissed the top of her head.

"I know," she said with a blush to her cheeks then her face became serious and she looked up at him. "Daddy, are Uncle Adam and Uncle Alan ok?"

"I think so. Why?"

"Well, they're not around bugging us," she said as Duer pushed the button for the elephant to rise higher and he scanned for any sign of Alan or Adam.

"You're right, Butterfly. Where are they?" he asked as he frowned then smiled, watching Koschei laughing at Aderyn waving her arms back and forth.


"Where's Little Alan?" Rose asked as she walked toward Marion and handed her a paper cup filled with lemonade.

"Hamish and Moira took him to go see that princess from Brave," she said and sipped on the lemonade.

"Ah," Rose said then sipped on the lemonade and Marion saw the worried look on her face.

"You ok?"

"Yeah," Rose sighed then brushed some hair from her eyes and Marion titled her head to one side.

"You noticed it, too, yeah?"

"Yep, Alan and Adam aren't bugging us."

"They should be driving us crazy about going on Everest."

"Do you think seeing it in ruins upset them more than…." Rose said then yelped when Alan came up behind her, slid his arms around her and lifted her off the ground, spinning her around in circles. "Put me down, you loony!"

"Only if you promise to give me a super sloppy kissy!" he said and she sighed, nodding her head. Alan lowered her to the ground when she slid her arms around his neck and kissed his lips. Moving back, Alan smacked his lips then then rolled his eyes in thought and sighed. "Not as super sloppy as I like, but it'll do."

"Where have you two been?" Marion asked as she slid her arms around Adam's waist and he arched the fedora over his eyes.

"We went to the Animal Kingdom," he said and she gently pushed the fedora up with her finger.

"And how many times did you ride Everest?"

"Zero," he said and she gave him a concerned look.

"But you love Everest," Rose said and Alan sighed, sliding his arms around her and placed his chin on the top of her head.

"Guys, just because it was destroyed in one universe shouldn't spoil it for you here," Marion said, placing her cheek against Adam's chest.

"Oh, that's not the reason why we didn't go on it," Adam said and she looked up at him.

"What are you on about?" Rose said and Alan looked at Adam.

"Should we tell them?" he asked.

"After you, Dear Boy," Adam said with a nod of his head.

"You see, knowing how much we love Everest, the TARDIS replicated it for us and was going to give it to us for Christmas. But, seeing how upset we were, she gave it to us early."

"In other words, why ride it here when we can ride it any time we want?" Adam asked.

"So what DO you want to ride?" Marion asked.

"I'm in the mood for something slow and relaxing," Alan said.

"Care to take them on a jungle cruise?" Adam asked with a smug look on his face.

"Yes, that would be lovely," Alan said when they held out their elbows and Rose and Marion giggled, taking their arms and walked down the path. None of them noticed the door leading down to the tunnel opening and a pair of yellow snake eyes shimmered brightly in the darkness.

The End….
