Author: badly_knitted

Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 348: Party at dw100.

Summary: There’s a reason the Doctor never sticks around for long.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

In the aftermath of their deliverance from the ‘demons’, the entire population of the small community were throwing a gigantic celebration, a festival of thanksgiving, but the guest of honour was conspicuous by his absence.

“Aren’t we going to stay for the party?” Rose asked, almost having to run to keep up with the Doctor’s long strides.

“Best not,” the Doctor replied. “Stay for the party, then a bit longer as a guest, then just a few more days to help put everything straight… Before you know it they’re like family and then it hurts too much to say goodbye.”

The End
