Rose stood out on the empty beach, tears running down her cheeks as she spoke in a quiet voice. “Planet Earth. It was where I was born. And this is where I died.” She reached up and grasped the hand that squeezed her shoulder. “For the first nineteen years of my life, nothing happened. Nothing at all.
“And then I met a man called the Doctor. A man who could change his face. And he took me away from home in his magical machine. He showed me the whole of time and space. I thought it would never end.
That's what I thought
. But then came the army of ghosts. Then came Torchwood and the War. And that's when it all ended.
You wanted to know… This is the story of how I died.”
I was going to hold onto the next chapter for a few days before posting, but I'm too impatient. Of course I had also intended to wait on posting this until I made more progress with this and my other stories, but as MusesInspire can attest, I have very little willpower when it comes to that.
