Chapter Thirteen

"Hey, guys, we're home!" Lori called out as she came inside the house.

"We're down here, Mommy," Michelle called up as everyone else came inside the house.

"Are you finished with the story?" Lori yelled down.

"Yes," Michelle yelled up.

"Okay, you can go down then," Lori said to Mandy and Tom as Jim shut the door behind everyone.

Mandy and Tom hurried downstairs while Lori and Jim followed them. Rex bounded towards the children but they ignored him for the moment and made a beeline to Rose and John.

"Hey, your eye isn't all weird like it was," Tom said when he reached John's side with Mandy.

"No, it's healing up," John said, leaning forward to show them his half mended eye. "The Doctor did that for me."

They hugged him and walked around to Rose.

"Hi, Sissy," Tom said, hugging her tightly.

"Hello, little brother, did you and Mandy have fun tonight?" Rose asked them.

"Yes, we played putt-putt," Tom said.

"Putt-putt?" Rose said, looking at Lori.

"Miniature golf," Lori said.

"Oh! Okay! Yeah, I like playing that as well," Rose said to Tom. "I'm glad you had fun, love."

"Are you getting better?" Tom said, a worried look on his face.

"Yes, I am. We both are," Rose said, hugging him.

"Ew…and just when I thought we were rid of you," the Doctor said, stepping up to Mandy.

"You mind your Ps and Qs!" Mandy said, spinning around and pointing at him.

"Never!" the Doctor said while everyone laughed. "I will never mind my Ps and Qs! I will mind my Rs and Ts before I mind my Ps and Qs. Now stand aside and let me get to Rose before you get cooties all over her!"

"No," Mandy said with a giggle while he walked over to her.

"Lookie, sparse hair," the Doctor said to Mandy while he rubbed the top of Rose's head.

"Actually, that feels nice, keep on with that," Rose said while everyone laughed.

The Doctor massaged her head while Rose closed her eyes and savored it.

"See, she likes it," the Doctor said to the children while John watched and grinned. "I know what'll make Rose happy, unlike you lot with your whining and crying and shouts of Ps and Qs."

"You leave my sissy's hair alone!" Tom said with a giggle while he tugged at the Doctor's free hand.

The children giggle when the Doctor feigned anger, stopped massaging Rose's scalp and put his finger on top of her head while he gave Tom a pointed look.

"Hey, stop that," Tom said while Rose chuckled.

"La, la, la, lee, loo, la," the Doctor sang while he kept his finger on Rose's head.

He grunted when Michelle ran around the back and smacked his ass as hard as she could.

"Ooo, better run now," Rose said while the children laughed harder at the Doctor's incensed look. "Even I wasn't brave enough to smack the bum of the Oncoming Storm."

"Mommy, save me," Michelle said, running around Lori.

"Why? You did it," Lori said while everyone laughed.

"Okay, Daddy can save me then," Michelle said, running behind him.

"Um…okay," Jim said. "Don't!" he said sternly as he pointed a finger at the Doctor.

"Yes, sir. Sorry, sir," the Doctor said, taking his finger away from Rose while everyone laughed hysterically.

"Can I put my finger on Rose's head?" Jack asked him.

"Sure, why not?" Jim said with a shrug.

"Daddy likes me best," Jack said to the Doctor while he put his finger on Rose's head.

"Whaaaa, Daddy hates me!" the Doctor whined while everyone laughed. "I don't like this game anymore! I'll go and sulk over here!"

The children laughed while he stomped over to the sofa bed and plopped down on the side of it, facing away from everyone while he folded his arms over his chest. Michelle walked over and plopped down beside him.

"Ewww, cooties," the Doctor said, scooting to the right while Michelle giggled.

Donna grinned at everyone and walked over to him.

"Aw, is Doctor going to sulk now?" she said in a high-pitched tone of voice.

"Yup. And I'm staying away from the cooties as well," the Doctor said, pointing to Michelle.

Suddenly Jack flounced over to the Doctor and hugged him tightly.

"I love you even when no one else will. You and your big beautiful floppy hair and not really there eyebrows!" he squealed.

Everyone laughed when the Doctor tried to squirm out of his grasp.

"Yes, I love you and your tweed and your bow tie and this whole outfit that just screams out geeky, socially awkward alien!" Jack said, hugging him harder. "Why must we be forever at odds? Why can't we just get along, you old fart, you?"

"Gah!" the Doctor said when Jack planted a big sloppy kiss on his cheek and flounced back to Rose.

Everyone laughed while the Doctor gave him a dirty look while he wiped the slobber off his cheek.

"Now do Rose that way and see if you don't land up with your teeth on the floor," the Doctor said to him.

"Oooh, my Rosie," Jack said as he hugged her. "My beautiful blondie who is painfully thin and bald at the moment but you know what? I don't care because I love ya!"

Rose giggled and shot her husband a look.

"Well?" she said to John, pointing to Jack who was still hugging her.

"I'm trying to appear nonexistent so I don't get hugged and slobbered over," John said.

Jack let out an exaggerated gasp.

"You mean you'll leave your wife to my mercies? Oh, that's so sweeeeet!" he said, hugging Rose tightly.

John's eyes widened when Donna grabbed him and began to hug.

"Don't worry, Jack, I'll see that he's loved on," Donna said to Jack while he hugged John. "Oooh, you're a big, bald beautiful Time Lord, aren't ya?"

"You know, this is really odd," John said while everyone laughed. "But then again, after all the abuse, it's sorta nice as well."

Donna kissed the top of his head and sat down on the sofa bed behind the Doctor. Amy nudged her husband and suddenly she was by the side of John's bed.

"You're gonna hug me now?" John said to her.

"No, just showing off. Observe," Amy said.

Suddenly, she transformed herself into an angel with a bright golden glow around her and a teeny weeny halo above her head.

"Be blessed, my friend," Amy said, putting her hand on his head.

"Thank you, Angel Amy," John said.

"Pond, stop being holier than thou and get in the TARDIS and work!" the Doctor yelled at her over his shoulder. "I don't pay you to stand around and impersonate angels! Now scoot!"

"Excuse me, my friend," Amy said to John.

She disappeared for a moment and reappeared a few seconds later in front of the Doctor, this time looking like a Weeping Angel.

"Don't blink," she said menacingly to the Doctor.

"What's that supposed to be, a demonic angel?" Rose said to John.

"Weeping Angel they're called but yeah, demonic angel could also work," John said to her.

"Rory, come and collect your wife, will you please?" the Doctor called out.

Everyone laughed at something and the Doctor looked over his shoulder to see Rory filing his nails while he lounged against the heavenly tree.

"I'm sorry, what?" Rory said to the Doctor as he looked up. "I was being a metrosexual here and the sound of my filing prevented me from hearing you properly."

The Doctor tried to say something cheeky in return but all he could do was laugh at that and everyone laughed with him. Amy turned back into her good angel self and put her hand on his head.

"And you, be blessed as well," she said with a posh accent before disappearing and reappearing beside Rory.

"Ewww, spirit cooties," the Doctor said, putting his hand on his head.

"Well, you know what, I think I'm gonna leave you guys to your fun and go up and have a shower," Lori said to them.

"Yes, I'm gonna do the same but don't kill each other or drive each other insane," Jim added. "And don't destroy the house before we move from here, okay?"

"Yes, Daddy," everyone said in unison.

Jim gave Lori a bemused look while everyone laughed.

"You know what, dear? I didn't know when we adopted this crowd that we were adding to our collection of children," Jim said, putting his arm around Lori while they headed upstairs.
