Oh she was interested, he could just see it in that look of hers. “Queen of it all, and you’d be right by me.” He scooted closer his face just a few inches away. “Imagine all the things we could do together we’d be unstop—-” Just before Mr.Clever could even remotely finish his statement the TARDIS had deiced that was enough, or rather maybe it was Doc. Hmust had starter the interface or at least put in the emergency protocol before he and Mr.Clever had hit the ground.
“Error, distress codes activated. Lockdown starting in three minuets.” The well known voice rang out, it was the interface and this time it had chosen the face of Lilly. Good choice there…maybe. Mr.Clever was surly pissed off at this sight, not only was that thing stopping him, but he had no idea what it was. “Cybertech detected. Assistance required to take out threat.” The interface repeated still ignoring the obviously mad Mr.Clever. Just what was Doc up to now?
A wave of relief washed through Lilliana, hearing those words. The whole hearing her own voice was a bit alarming, but at least she didn’t have to stall for much time. “Oh, good. Emergency protocols, I was hoping there was something like that —Whoa.”
She hopped to her feet almost immediately, letting Mr. Clever sit there on the floor. Lilliana was now looking at the visual interface - quite literally her face. “You’ve got my face - why have you got my face? Is this because Doc? Well no I suppose to doesnt matter, but it is a bit odd. Is that really how my hair looks?” It was a little different seeing herself like this, but at the same time it wasn’t really her. “Oh well,” she shrugged, sparing a glance back at Mr. Clever. “So, cybertech means cybermen, right? But werent they those big old… metal robot lookin things?”

“Well, guess…thats today..Isn’t it?”
“It sure is! And I know you’re not a daddy juuuust yet, but I couldnt help but get you something.” Dangles a little gift bag at him.
“And a super fantastic morning to you, dear!”
The coughing had finally stopped, but..it had left a toll on the Time Lord. Laying on the floor, his rag now almost fully red instead of splotched. His chest fell down and upwards with every shallow breath he took. It hurt, everything hurt. Not just physically, but even mentally.The Doctor slowly sat up, at this point it may have been better for him to sit rather than be laying down due to the constant coughs and lack of air.This was the end wasn’t? Why on earth did it have to be now though? Why..Why not later down the road? More tears started to make their way down his face as he thought about everything he would be missing once gone, he’d miss the birth of his child, he’d miss his own wedding, he’d miss carrying Lilly down after being married and wisking her away to their own little slice of paradise..He’d miss one thing the most though, those nights where he’d wake up in the middle of the night terrified, thinking he was utterly alone only to find someone next to him..Someone who he loved, and loved him in return. The Doctor would miss Lilliana the most of all.
Had it only been a few minutes? Or had it been more then ten? Time seemed slow to Lilly, each second dragging on for hours. Why wasn’t he back yet? What happened? Had he fallen? Was he having another coughing fit? What if he needed help?
Her worries automatically assumed the worst, and the brunette soon found herself hurrying out of the nursery and towards the front door. For a moment she worried she might hear the sound of the TARDIS engines, leaving her behind so she wouldn’t have to see him struggle in his last moments. The grass seemed to crunch under her shoes as she ran, hair patting her back with each step, the breeze toying with it and brushing random strands in front of her face. “Doctor?” she called, anxious as she made her way to the TARDIS as quick as she could manage.
“I’ll be here.” The Doctor smiled softly, he had to force it at first, but hopefully Lilly got what he was saying. “..I..I keep asking myself that as well. But, I’ll always be right beside you, Lilliana. Never, ever think i wont be.” Stealing a quick kiss the Doctor pulled out another key. “Always need a spare, right?”Chuckling he opened the door, letting her inside first. “Have a look around—I..I’ll just be a moment, I think I forgot the book for the little one back in the TARDIS.” Flailing with a laugh the Time Lord was off, however once he had made it past the steps of the house he began wheezing.
Taking out the rag as he still made his way back to the TARDIS he clamped it over his mouth, leaning against the blue box and coughed into it.It took him a few moments, but to the Doctor it seemed like he was drowning, the coughing lasted far to long. Slipping into the TARIDS he gasped for air, this..this maybe bad. Crawling to the TARDIS the Doctor clutched the rag, still gasping to get oxygen into his lungs. He had to do something, at least something to make sure Lilly couldn’t see him like this, but that..that was when he remembered something. The book he had talked about earlier was right inside the nursery, sitting beside a rather blue bassinet, words of Gallifreyan engraved into its sides. Remembering this small thing, some how put the Time Lord at easy, giving him time to shut his eyes though he was still gasping like a fish out of water. “I…I am truly sorry, Lilly.” The Doctor managed to at least get some words out, just before starting to cough into his rag once more.
Lilliana let her fingers trail along the walls as she walked further into the house. She hadn’t wanted him to leave her side, but it was almost as if she understood. She didnt want to see him in pain anymore than he wanted her to see him like that. She supposed either way it would hurt them. She needed a moment to collect herself anyway. She stopped in the hall by the stairs, leaning against the wall and rubbed at her eyes with her sleeves. It was painful, but she knew it was nothing compared to the pain he had to be feeling.
She could repeat that to herself as many times as she wanted, but it didnt make things any easier for her. The brunette took a few deep breaths, fitting the lid back on top of her mental bottle for those overpowering emotions that made her want nothing more than to curl up on the floor and cry her eyes out. Slowly, she pushed away from the wall and made her way into another room. It was a nursery, already set up and decorated for the child to come, and that only brought tears to her eyes a new. “You really did think of everything… didnt you?”
Mr. Clever let out a laugh hearing Lilly insult him. “Oh feisty. You know, he really does enjoy that side of you.” Winking the Doctor tried to scoot a little closer, well rather Mr.Clever tried to scoot him forwards. “Oh no need for that, love,” He tried to work at the ties around his hands, but it was no use there.“I’m here for him not you. He’s got everything we’ve ever wanted. I’m right in the middle of going though every…single, last memory of this clown, and once I finish…the Cybermen will be on top once more. Theres nothing, and I mean nothing you can do.”
Leaning forwards once more he flashed a smile, his mood once more changing from utterly dark to simply cheeky. “So then, hows ‘bout you give us a kiss? It could be in celebration of becoming the one who stands by us, just think you could be a queen. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?”
Lilly quirked a brow, as if she were showing interest in his proposal. Her lips fell into a pressed line, concealing her emotions. She had to think through her moves carefully, but there was only so much she could do on her own without the Doctor to give instruction. Her hands seemed to absently fiddle with the sonic, as if a habit as she thought. “Queen, huh?” she asked, leaning forward a little. Lilly bit her bottom lip, brown hues lifting their gaze a little to look him in the eye. “I could be a Queen, and stand by you?”
She was stalling for time - she hoped Doc realized that. Or, well maybe she didnt hope he realized that. If he knew that then it was highly likely that the Mr. Clever would know too. She’d… probably have to explain things later.
HAHAHA, what manga is he from?
