Author's Notes:
This just popped into my head when I watched the mid-series trailer on the Doctor who website.

I'm so scared.

There was that moment when I looked into your eyes. I saw so many different feelings. Some of pure joy but others of grief, pain, and sadness. You were so unsure. You didn't know what to do or who to turn to. Because you had suffered once. And you were terrified of suffering again.

I'm so scared.

I know that if it had been anyone else. Anyone of your hundreds of other companions you would have been too wary to smile like a boy on Christmas morning or run to their arms like the world was at peace. You would have hugged them, but you wouldn’t have kissed them and pledged your loyalty to them. You wouldn’t have risked the world.

I'm so scared.

I hope we can trust her and I dare not say anything. Because now you have Rose back you won’t need anyone else. Not me, nor Martha. You have her and that’s all that matters to you.

But I'm so scared.

I thought you had been swallowed already by the fast approaching darkness, but when you smiled at her. When you danced across the TARDIS floor with her in your arms I knew that, like me, you had just been waiting, not drifting. And this time you were fixed.

But I was afraid for you.

What if she turned out not to be the same Rose you knew? You had put all your trust, your belief, your very being, into this girl.

But what if she had been caught by the darkness?

What if she broke you?

I'm so scared.

Because you wouldn’t get back up. You couldn’t.

Rose has the power of life and death over you.

And I'm so scared.
