AU Meme | TenToo/Rose have a daughter and she’s ready to start her own adventure
“Mum gave me the locket once Dad had finished setting the photo. It was a old thing. Not new by any means but not worn out either; it was loved. It was loved through countless generations, from parent to child, over and over until it finally hung from a delicate gold chain around my neck, as mum fixed the clasp. I loved it already.
“Inside were two images: one of me just now infront of the other TARDIS and one of Mum and Dad at their engagement party before I was even born. It’s my favorite picture of them. They still have that same sense of joy and thirst for life that they had all those years ago. I’m going to miss them terribly.
“Before I was able to take even take one step towards the TARDIS after saying our goodbyes, Dad rushed over pulling out his sonic screwdriver and grasped the locket. The device whirred and buzzed as he carved the familiar intersecting curves and lines that he had taught me. I didn’t know too much but I was familiar with that phrase in particular. I looked up, exchanging smiles with him as he placed a kiss on my head and ushered me to step inside.
“Later on that day, the Doctor asked me what my Dad had written and if I understood it. Of course I did. There could be no mistake, he’d said it to me a thousand times before and signed nearly every birthday, holiday, and special occasion card with it. It said: ‘Our two hearts beat only for you.’”
