Dawn's Place VII

A derelict double decker red bus leaning against some collapsed masonry in a vaguely defined part of the Town. Outside is a very deep hole, about big enough for a person, a sign by it claims that it's a work in progress.

----

"I'm sorry dear, it's not your fault. It's just the way of things."
Obscurejones

He smiles and hops up to sit on the counter.
Is that all?  Then I know we'll be together forever.  Denying the natural order is my stock and trade.
Who

"You're human right?"
Obscurejones

He shakes his head.
Used to be.  Well... Used to be a half orc, half deity.
Who

"And what does that make you now?"
Obscurejones

Timelordy.  With some extra bits of my own design.
Who

"And there's your problem."
Obscurejones

Huh?
Who

"You'll get bored."
Obscurejones

He shakes his head.
You don't get boring.
Who

"You say that now, you've got the lifespan but not the mindset."
Obscurejones

How so?
Who

"People born in to immortal races are to keep with things far longer than those of lesser spieces, it's a neccesity or we'd go mad with boredom after about 500 years, but you just gave it to yourself, I give you 100 years tops before you trade her in for a new one."
Obscurejones

He smirks and goes to start making himself a cup of tea.
Who

"Don't believe me?"
Obscurejones

I think you've got your facts wrong.
Who

"My dear boy I very rarely get my facts wrong, do tell."
Obscurejones

I was immortal before we met.
Who

"Well okay then, still don't fancy your chances."
Obscurejones

I don't mind what you fancy, I just care about... well, what you fancy I suppose.  Time travel has interesting grammatical problems.
Who

"That's not the half of it, do you know how embarrasing it is to bump in to yourself at a social function, and be wearing the same thing? I was mortified, I had to send myself home to change. Don't know what I was thinking."
Obscurejones

He frowns for a second.  
That doesn't really seem fair.  Shouldn't you have remembered to wear something different the second time you went?
Who

"I should have done, that's why I sent me home."
Obscurejones

Ah.  Sorry.  Lost track of the yous in that one.
Who

Of course she's now given two contradicting statements, even I'm not quite sure who she is now.

"It happens. Where's other me gone? This is hardly polite."
Obscurejones

I think she's avoiding you.  I get the feeling she doesn't like your visits.
Who

"The cheek of it."

She heads for the stairs.
Obscurejones

John moves to block her.
And if she doesn't want to see you that's her right.
Who

There's a joke here about learning to live with yourself, I just can't think of it.

"Protective aren't you?"
Obscurejones

He nods.
Very.
Who

"You're a definite improvement on the last one."
Obscurejones

Thank you.
He doesn't move.
Who

"And the one before that come to think about it."

She heads back to a chair.
Obscurejones

Glad to know I'm appreciated.
The tea kettle starts whistling and he goes to pour himself a cup.
Who

"Well you're not6 a penguin or a cactus so you're streets ahead."
Obscurejones

He bites his lip, and has a sip of tea.
I do like to think I'm better than a cactus.
Who

"I probably shouldn't have told you that..."
Obscurejones

And a penguin?
Who

"Yeah, I've said too much."
Obscurejones

He looks confused.
Were they intimate?  How exactly is one intimate with a penguin?
Who

She needs a distraction, she rummages through her handbag.

"Gum?"
Obscurejones

No thank you.  Penguin intimacy?
Who

"I hardly think my personal life is any of your business."
Obscurejones

He thinks about it for a second.
Yeah it is.
Who

"Nope. Sure you don't want some gum?"
Obscurejones

He shrugs.
Sure.
Who

She hands a stick of it over.
Obscurejones

He cautiously chews the gum.
Who

BAM! Fast acting sedative.
Obscurejones

Thought so.  Down he goes. Bacon runs over and makes concerned piggy noises.
Who

She steps over him and goes to bug Dawn for a while then.
Obscurejones

The pig follows her, making angry noises.
Who

"What do you want?"

"What, can't I catch up with myself?"
Obscurejones

The pig keeps ramming into older Dawn's shins, bouncing off, shaking it's head, and ramming again.
Who

"What's it doing?"

"I don't think it likes you."

"Well tell it to stop."

"Ramming speed Mr Pig."
Obscurejones

Bacon nods and keeps ramming.
Who

"What?"

"Look, everytime you visit me you're a disaster. Why do you even keep turning up?"

"There's very little else to do."
Obscurejones

Piggish ramming.  After a while it pauses to catch it's little piggy breath.
Who

"Where's John?"

"Oh, busy downstairs. Said he had reading to catch up on."
Obscurejones

Bacon shakes his head.
Who

"Well the pig says you're lying."

She heads down the stairs.
Obscurejones

John's been knocked out.
Who

"What the hell!?"

"You know as well as I do that only lasts an hour."

"I want you out of my house now!"
Obscurejones

Bacon nods.
Who

"Well technically it's not a house."

The now Dawn tries to pick John up and dump him on a bench.
Obscurejones

He's dumped.  Bacon hops up to protectively sit on his chest.
Who

"Now get out!"

"Fine...honestly, I'm not looking forward to being you."
Obscurejones

Shocked
Bacon looks confused.  He thought she was a future lady.
Who

Things she's said point to her being both. Smile

"Get out!"

Other Dawn heads for her own bus.
Obscurejones

Bacon looks worriedly at his Dawn.
Who

A loud humming fills the air.

"Well that's the end of her."
Obscurejones

Bacon looks confused.  Who said that?
Who

Regular Dawn said it, though it still fits what's going to happen if other one said it. The other bus vanishes into the cross dimensional pathways.
Obscurejones

Bacon sits on John's chest.
Who

Dawn puts a hand on his forehead and tries to telepathically jolt him awake.
Obscurejones

John jolts awake and sits up.  Bacon falls down to his lap.
Who

Dawn hugs him.

"I'm sorry."
Obscurejones

He seems confused.
Did other you slip me a mickey?
Who

"Slipped me a mickey? Who still talks like that?"
Obscurejones

He looks hurt.  Get's out from under Bacon and heads for the upstairs.
Who

Dawn follows him.

"She won't turn up again."
Obscurejones

He doesn't look back at her and crawls into and under the cover pile.
Who

"Are you alright?"
Obscurejones

Bacon trundles up the stairs and climbs to triumphantly sit upon the cover pile.
Who

Dawn crawls in next to John.

"John?"
Obscurejones

John's deep in the pile.  Bacon scrambles about trying to keep his footing.
Who

Dawn lies there, looking up at the ceiling.

"Stupid other me."
Obscurejones

John wriggles out for a moment and kisses her on the cheek.  Dives back into the covers.
Who

Dawn scrambles after him.

"John?"
Obscurejones

He's laughing under the covers.  Kisses her.  Bacon falls off the pile.
Who

She kisses him back and hugs him.
Obscurejones

He hugs back and goes for the curtain.
Who

When it comes up she's hugging him.

"I take it you're fine then?"
Obscurejones

He kisses her by way of response.  Bacon is hiding in the bathroom.  They keep doing that!
Who

They should really warn him.

"I'll take that as a yes."
Obscurejones

He nods.
Promise that if you drug me again you'll at least have the common courtesy to have me wake up in a compromising position.
Who

"It wasn't me."
Obscurejones

Promise me anyways?
Who

"Fine...well she's gone now."
Obscurejones

He kisses her again.
