"Rose, stop" Jo growled through gritted teeth. "You wouldn’t understand if I told you, so why don’t you do us both a favor and shut your goddamn mouth!”
Rose swallowed thickly, remembering the night she’d asked Dean about it. “Yeah, yeah he told me.” She answered, pulling away.
"I didn’t exactly have the best afterlife" Jo mumbled, then cleared her throat before continuing "I was in hell, Rose"
Rose was shocked. She could only stare, imagining Jo in Hell. The burning, the pain she must have felt. “Oh Jo.. I”m so sorry.” She choked out.
"That’s what it sounds like," he nodded. "Yeah, they’ll eat a person in a heart beat. All I can ask is that you watch yourself. I’ve never seen one this far out, so it has to mean they’re evolving."
"That would be lovely, thank you." Rose held the knot in place while she waited for Dean.
"I hope the waters not too cold, I hate swimming in chilly water. But it does wake you up!" She laughed lightly, thinking about the pool.
Dean chuckled, stepping out of the shower with his towel around his waist before changing quickly into his swim trunks. “That’s true, but you have to admit that either way it would be nice. I haven’t gone swimming in years.”
In all honesty, the hunter couldn’t remember the last time he’d even had a conversation about something other than hunting for a little while at least, and it made him smile as he walked over and tied the back of Rose’s swim suit before pressing a light kiss to the back of her neck. “It looks good on you.”
Rose turned around and placed a quick kiss on Dean’s lips before walking to the door. “Thank you.” She smiled, holding out her hand for him.
She was excited to swim again. The last time she could remember swimming was when she was a young girl, when she would do swim lessons. “Come on you, let’s go for a swim.”
The Doctor sat down, eyes wide. His cheek still smarted from the slap she had given him. And that was just the build up. She had been very abusive here lately, smacking him for the smallest thing and yelling at him over nothing. He rubbed his cheek, swallowing hard.
Rose looked down at her hands, one still stinging a little from the impact. “Doctor.. I’m- I’m sorry.” She repeated. She hadn’t meant to lash out like that. It had just happened. “I didn’t mean to.” She wrapped her arms around herself and took a few steps back.
The Doctor stood up. He brushed past her, going to the bedroom and shutting the door. He had been in abusive relationships before, and he loved Rose to death. He knew she was going through things, but that wasn’t the way to deal with it.
Rose watched The Doctor leave the room and ran to the bathroom when he had shut the door. She huddled into the corner on the cold floor and buried her face in her hands. The sobs that soon came rocked her body. What have I done? She thought to herself. He’ll never forgive me for this.
The Doctor came out hours later, the growl of his stomach forcing him to. He didn’t know what to do or how to deal with Rose. Walking towards the kitchen, he wondered when things had ended up like this.
Rose hadn’t moved from the corner on the bathroom floor. Her tears had stained her face, and dried there. She had stopped crying an hour prior, but she refused to move. Her body felt like it had shut down. What’s the point in moving? She thought. I hurt him, and he won’t forgive me. She remained there, her head leaning against the wall and her legs pulled up to her chest.
The Doctor pressed against the wall, hands going to her hips. If her response was anything to go by, he would say the date went fairly well, brilliant even!
Rose put her hand against his chest, her lips still on his. She could feel his hands on her, and she loved his touch. Her other hand went to his hair, pulling playfully on it.
The Doctor groaned. He wrapped his arms around her waist, pulling her up and against him. He lost himself in the kiss. He loved kissing Rose Tyler. It was addicting.
Rose loved when The Doctor picked her up. She wrapped her legs around his waist and moved her hands to the back of his neck, deepening the kiss. She could smell his cologne so clearly now, and she could hear their heavy breathing. She could stay here forever and be happy.
