Summary: "But when the sun goes down, the shadows reflect her past, and she remembers."
This is my first fic; keep in my mind I’m not a fic-writer. I’m pretty sure I suck at it, so go easy.
I DON’T NEED FOREVER;
I JUST NEED TONIGHT
Even now he still regretted flying away from her. He couldn’t put it in words, why he’d done it. His brain kept telling him that it was the right thing to do, but no matter how many times it was repeated, he couldn’t quite make his heart believe it. Tonight something had changed in him.
He was going back.
She laughs, but not as hard. She is content, but nothing compared to back before it all happened. It has been a month since their last goodbye. Since she was left with the new Doctor. He is literally the same in every way, but he’s not her Doctor. In a way he should help her forget the man that keeps flying away, just out of her reach. It fixes her temporarily. Her life is okay as long as the sun is shining, as long as she can’t see the darkness. But when the sun goes down, the shadows reflect her past, and she remembers.
He was a timelord; there to save the universe from destruction when there was no one else. Every time he fought on because of her. She saved him from himself, years ago, and now they were both broken. A cut so deep that it could only be healed with each other’s love. He couldn’t ignore it any longer. The truth that was apparent with every passing day. The undeniable truth: He needed her.
