A Collection Of Unseen Moments

Chapter Text

“So,” Clara leans against the doorframe, her arms folded as she looks over at him with a mischievous smile. “You’ve found a new one, then.”

“You make me sound like I’ve done something wrong,” the Doctor grouses, turning away from her and rearranging the pile of leather-bound books on his desk. “To be fair-”

“To be fair, you couldn’t remember me. I know,” she half smiles. “You kept your promise, that’s good. What’s she like?”

“Bill?” he shrugs, trying to look ambiguous. “Nice. Curious. Wanders off a lot.”

“Nosy?”

“Gay.”

Clara blinks at him in consternation. “Sorry, how are those two linked?”

“Well, she sees attractive women and she… follows.”

Clara looks at him for a moment, unsure if he’s joking or not. When she realises he’s serious, she bursts into laughter, crossing the room to him and enveloping him in a hug he protests to only minimally. “Hey,” she chides, as she turns her face to the side to avoid getting her makeup on his hoodie. “Where’s your photo of me?”

“Oh,” the tips of his ears turn red as he pulls away, and he rubs the back of his neck. “Urm. Well. Now you’re here, I suppose I should…”

“Take my photo?” she asks, then looks coquettish. “Clothed? Or otherwise?”

He ponders the question for a moment. “Clothed,” he says seriously. “Bill might fall in love with you otherwise.”
