Chapter 2: Chapter 1
Author's Notes:

Rose leaned across the console and smiled at the Doctor who grinned back showing off every single of his perfect white teeth.

‘So where are we going?’ she pondered.

The Doctor tapped his nose, ‘n-uh-uh! It’s a surprise,’

‘Ooo! A surprise you say?’ Rose moved closer to the time lord and whispered gently in his ear. ‘So, where are we meant to land and where are we gonna end up landing?’

He playfully hit her on the arm and retorted with an, ‘oi!’

Rose laughed, ‘oh come on. It’s true though!’

The Doctor folded his arms, turned away from her with his head held high. If Rose could see his face she would be rolling around on the floor laughing because he looks really funny whilst pulling a grumpy face.

‘Stop being silly; where are we going?’

The Doctor turned back to face her with an odd look of smugness on his face, ‘well, I was going to take you to a tropical paradise but now, as a result of your rudeness we are going to go back to good old England!’

Rose threw him a sceptical look, ‘so instead of getting into danger in a tropical paradise, we’re gonna get into trouble in England — not much difference really is there?! Anyway, aren’t we out of milk?’

The time lord shook his head whilst muttering, ‘stupid Earth, thinks it’s clever for being the only planet with cows…’

She couldn’t help but laugh at this, ‘the high and mighty time lord is jealous of Earth?’

He looked up at Rose and with his gorgeous chocolate brown eyes, gazed deeply into her hazel ones. Rose felt her stomached jitter and her heart flutter. She pushed the feelings away as the Doctor said very seriously, ‘oh no, Rose. I’m just jealous of the cows.’

She raised her eyebrow and repeated, ‘you’re “jealous of the cows”?’

Still with his look of seriousness he replied, ‘that’s what I said wasn’t it?’
Rose looked him up and down for a second before focusing on his stomach, ‘so. You’d like to have udders would you?’ She said before suddenly reaching out her hands and tickling him; hard.

A gentle bump signalled that they had arrived at their destination so Rose pulled back, walked away and went out of the door without a single word, leaving the Doctor leaning against the console stunned and gasping for breath.
