Clara looked down a bit, feeling bad. She knew she should have learned when to shut her mouth. “Oh..I’m sorry I didn’t mean to..” She shook her head a bit and sighed. “I’m sorry..” She nodded lightly and looked around for Holly a bit more.
Sally didn’t want to be upsetting, which is what she assumed her demeanor was. She tried to form a stiff upper lip and explained,”No, no. It’s quite alright. I left him while I was still pregnant. It was painful but it was better that way. No reason to be sorry. Jack was always his own man anyhow.”
"Must look like her father then, eh?" She laughed softly and looked around for a little girl with a cog, who looked like Sally described. "Where is he? If you don’t mind me asking.."
The color moved out of her face when she heard Clara’s question. She should be used to having people ask that but… it still struck a chord. “She looks a lot like him. He’s not here. I assume he’s in Cardiff.”
The Doctor was walking out of the bathroom in only his underwear. He walked over to dig for a pair of jeans and smiled as he heard the door open behind him.
She stepped into the room, barely. Sally knew that she was asking a lot by seeing if he wanted to meet her daughter. There was so much he had yet to know though. She felt almost obligated to inform him of it all. Her smile twitched slightly as she spoke,”Are you sure? Meeting a child for the first time, especially your…. ,”She couldn’t bring herself to say the word considering they hadn’t really established parameters and it felt awkwardly unsure,”…. can be dubious.”
The Doctor raised an eyebrow. “My what?” He asked. He stood up, walking over and wrapping his arms around her. “I can’t wait to meet her,” he whispered. He pecked her lips with a smile.
She kissed him back lightly before mumbling, muttering really,”Your girlfriend’s daughter….”
The Doctor grinned. He kissed her, hands gently cupping her face. “Come on,” he breathed. He led her out of the room.
"I should mention, Holly’s not like other girls," Sally looked up at him still nervous but nevertheless reaching for his fingers to intertwine with her own,"She’s not like me either though. Holly’s immortal."
