She pulled him in for a tight hug as she whispered in his ear. “Thank you. This means so much to me. You can see a little bit of my life BEFORE I went off into the TARDIS with you. It’ll be an adventure.” She pulled out of the hug with a grin still plastered onto her face. “There’s a lot you don’t know about me, Doctor. Er…I was rubbish at ballet. You would have laughed.” Amy laughed at the memory as she shook her head. “I do indeed know a place that serves it. Get ready to fall in love, Serious Doctor.” She joked as she grabbed his hand and pulled him along. “But first I want to show you something.” Amy led him into her house as she brought him into the main room where above the couch was a huge picture of Amy, The Doctor, and Rory. “Just a reminder of how big of a part you play in our lives.” She said shyly as she looked at him.
“A different kind of adventure, that’s for sure,” he replied. The Doctor had always been curious to know what her life had been like before she’d traveled with him. Not only that, but he wondered what would have happened if he had shown up five minutes after he had said that he would. “Well, I could use a good laugh,” he said, a smile tugging at his lips. “I bet you’re joking. You are. No restaurant would actually serve that.” Though he took her hand and followed along after her. Usually, it was him to the hand grabbing, but this he didn’t mind too much. When they got inside and he saw the picture, he eyed it curiously for a moment before he looked toward her again. “When was that one taken, I can’t seem to remember it. Though…you actually actually have a picture of me up. I’m grateful.”
“Yeah.” She said softly as she looked at him with a hint of sadness in her eyes. “It’s hard to be normal without my best friend.” The mood lightened immediately when his reaction to the Wii took place. When he said he’d go her eyes widened. “Are you serious?” A huge smile plagued her as she let out an excited squeal. She grabbed his hands and gave them a squeeze. “Yes! Oh! There are so many things I have to show you. My old ballet studio! No…you wouldn’t want to see that. OH! I know where you can find the BEST fish fingers and custard. That is if you’re up for it. Normalcy that is.” She winked.
The Doctor was about to suggest something. But he changed his mind. “Yes, I’m serious. You know me. Serious Doctor. Wait…scratch that. That’s another rubbish title.” He smiled a bit and gave her hands a squeeze back. “You took ballet?” His eyebrows shot up in surprise. This was something that he hadn’t known. “Wait…fish fingers and custard. You know a place that serves it. Well, come along then Pond.” He grinned a bit, deciding that maybe normalcy for a little while wouldn’t be too bad.
She gave him a sad smile as she pushed her hair behind her ear. “I know. You’re rubbish at being normal.” Amy looked down as she pulled away. “If it makes you feel better, Rory and I are pretty rubbish at being normal to.” She placed her hands on his wrist as she scrunched her nose. “But just for a few days, Doctor. You can play the Wii…” She taunted him.
“Is that so?” he asked with a raised eyebrow. He thought that they had liked being normal, but maybe that wasn’t the case. “Did you say the Wii?” He brightened up a bit and smiled at her. “Well, in that case. Let’s go.”
“Changing things up. Am I supposed to come up with the ideas now?” She asked. “King of okay, definitely a rubbish title. I’m great, Rory is great, everything is the usual.”
“That is the idea. I do all the work around here, changing things up wouldn’t be so bad.” He grinned a bit at her and nodded in agreement. “Forget I said that then. I’ll have to find another title. Brilliant. I’m glad that things are going well for you two.”
“I’ve missed you, Doctor. Why can’t you come stay with Rory and I for a little while? Come be normal with us…” She said softly. “I don’t like having to choose…And you know how selfish I am when it comes to my boys.”
“I missed you too Amy.” So much, he added in his head. Things were different without her around. “You know that I can’t do that. Normal isn’t me.” He shook his head a little too. Sighing a little, he pulled back. “Yeah I know. I guess a day or two here wouldn’t be too bad.”
“You’re the one that usually makes things interesting. I’m great, how are you?” Amy asked smiling.
“Yeah. Well, maybe I’m changing things up for once,” he replied, giving her a smile. “I’ve been…okay I guess. King of okay, remember? Wait, that was a rubbish title, wasn’t it? Anyway, how’s Amy Pond doing? And the husband. He’s doing well too, yeah?”
“That’s good no one deserves to be down.” Rose smiled at him “Yeah that’s me have we met before?”
He nodded a little and smiled a bit back at her. “Yeah. We have. Once or twice. Though, you wouldn’t know me with this face.”
“Or we could just go back in time and erase them all together. Who needs Mondays?” Amy said as she raised her brows at him before breaking into a smile and wrapping her arms around him. “I hugged you first this time.” She whispered as she squeezed him.
“If only it was that easy,” the Doctor replied. He gave her a little smile then, as she hugged him, he wrapped his own arms around her. “That’s a first. Hello to you too Pond.”
“Excuse me sir, are you okay you seem upset about something.” Rose asked walking up to him.
“Me? Upset about something? No, I’m fine.” Looking up, he recognizes the familiar face. “Rose Tyler?”
“Mondays don’t always have to be boring. You could make them interesting, you know.”
“I guess I could. Or you could. Hello Pond. How have you been?”
