Chapter 499: Dropping In
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 448: Bank at dw100.

Summary: There's an unexpected visitor in the TARDIS.

“Hello, Sweetie!”

The Doctor frowned; how did River always manage to get inside his TARDIS without him knowing? One minute he was by himself, and then there she was, like she’d just popped out of nowhere. He noticed the vortex manipulator fastened round her wrist. Maybe she had; with one of those a person could go just about anywhere.

“Aren’t you happy to see me?”

The air of innocence didn’t fool him a bit.

“What did you do this time; rob a bank?”

“Of course not; what do you take me for?”


“I’m an archaeologist. I robbed a museum.”
