“He always did like gingers,” the voice came from behind Amy and she was forced to spin around.
“What?” Amy looked the woman up and down in confusion. “Who are you?”
“Oh you must know. He had to have…talked about me,” she looked pained.
Amy took her in, her hair, her eyes, and then something sparked in the back of her mind. A picture she had seen on the Tardis one time, something the Doctor usually kept hidden. “It’s you. Oh my god, you’re really her, aren’t you?”
Rose smiled a very tired smile. “Rose Tyler, and you are?”
“Amy Pond. What are you doing here? He said he’d lost you forever, he said…he was always so sad, so lonely. The Doctor didn’t like speaking about it but…he never, ever forgot you.”
Rose nodded. “Yup. And I never forgot him. How could I? But now the universe needs him again, and I need your help to find him.”
