A/N: Thanks again to bas_math_girl for helping me, you are the best.
A/N2: The song 'Call Me Maybe' inspired this story. Also sorry I haven't updated my other story 'Trying Not To Love You' but I have started to write the next chapter.

As the Doctor led Donna back to his flat, he thought back to the hospital visit. The damage to Martha and Rose hadn’t been too bad, as Martha had managed to hit the brakes and slow them a little. Donna had been angry, and the Doctor best thought that they only see Martha and then take her home. On the way there Donna had asked if she could stay with him as she didn’t want to be alone, and of course he had said, ‘Yes’.

Unlocking his door, the Doctor led Donna to the settee and sat them down. They sat next to each other in silence for several minutes until Donna put her head on the Doctors shoulder and he wrapped his arms around her.

Donna broke the silence first. “They’re going to be ok, aren’t they?” she asked quietly.
“Yes, I should think they are,” the Doctor replied.

Snuggling into the Doctor, Donna just sighed and listened to his double heartbeat. She had decided that it didn’t freak her out that much; it just made her very curious, and the sound was oddly comforting.

As Donna lay in his arms, the Doctor thought about how irresponsible Rose had been and wondered how Donna had put up with her.

“How do you put up with her immature nature?” he suddenly asked.

Laughing softly, Donna responded, “I got use to it. Rose has this way of attracting trouble.”

“What do you mean?” asked the Doctor.

Sighing, Donna didn’t like talking about it but there was just something about this man that drew her to him. “Well, about three months before you moved in, Rose was dating this guy. He seemed nice, but he gave off this vibe that creeped me out; anyway, one day he came over and Rose told him that she had met someone else and that they were over. This guy just went ballistic and was screaming that she was his, and that if he couldn’t have her no one could; he came at her with a knife. Lucky I had just got home and was able to hold him off until the police came an arrested him. Rose got lucky, can’t say I did.” Turning her left arm a little, the Doctor saw a scar running down it about an inch.

The Doctor was shocked at what he saw and gently ran his fingers along it, thinking how brave Donna was.

Smiling at him, Donna just sighed and closed her eyes. Listening to her sigh, the Doctor realised that she was still traumatised by what happened, and decided that he should tell her about him and hope for the best.

Clearing his throat, the Doctor stated, “Uh, Donna, I need to tell you something and I don’t know how you are going to take it, and I’m really nervous about it and....”

“John, calm down and just tell me,” Donna said in a calm voice.

Taking a deep breath, the Doctor tried again. “Ok, first things first, I’m not human,” he said, waiting for Donna to run off screaming. He looked surprised when all she did was nod against him.

Smiling at him, Donna could tell he was waiting for her to run screaming, if the expression on his face was to go by.

“Yes, I gathered that by your double heartbeat,” Donna said with a smile.

Swallowing his surprise, the Doctor tried to think of how best to proceed.

Donna laughed softly at him before asking, “So what species are you?”

“I’m a Time Lord, and before you ask, I don’t look human, you look Time Lord. We came first,” he said with a small smirk.

Donna smacked him on the arm, making him smile.

“Any particular reason you are on Earth at the moment?” she asked curiously.

The Doctor’s smiled dropped off his face as he realised to answer that question would mean revealing a lot and he didn’t want to.

Realising that she had upset him, she hastily replied, “Hey, don’t worry, you don’t have to explain it to me if you don’t want to.”

Smiling at her, the Doctor pulled her into a hug before saying, “Well, I’m not just an alien you know; I do travel and I get lonely. So one reason I’m on Earth is I’m looking for a companion, and I have been trying to work up the courage to invite you and Martha along.”

Donna got excited about this for about two seconds before she realised that she couldn’t really leave Rose alone.

“I would love to travel with you, John, but unfortunately I can’t just leave Rose all alone,” she told him sadly.

“My name isn’t really John Smith, it’s just the Doctor,” he replied before continuing, “Also, my ship travels through time and space, so I could have you back five minutes after you left.”

“Ok Doctor, I’ll give it a go,” Donna responded.

Smiling his biggest smile at her, he pulled Donna to her feet and pulled her towards his spare room. Unlocking the door, he opened it and walked through.

Turning, the Doctor spoke, “This is my TARDIS; it stands for Time and Relative Dimension In Space.”

Donna was amazed at what she saw; it was one of those old police boxes that had always fascinated her when she was a child.

Looking at it in awe, Donna was about to say something when the Doctor got in first, “One more thing; the TARDIS is sentient so she can hear what you are thinking, and she has feelings, just so you know.”

Nodding, Donna just waited for the Doctor to open the door so they could go in. Once she stepped inside, Donna was amazed once again.

“Wow! She is beautiful,” Donna stated as she walked around the console room, trailing her fingers over everything she could touch.

The Doctor just smiled at her, she was so brilliant and he couldn’t wait to take her somewhere and hopefully she would come with him. After all, Donna deserved more than being stuck on Earth babysitting Rose.

Listen to the TARDIS hum her approval happily at him, the Doctor realised he was in love.
