I know it’s named after an episode of Doctor Who, but I hope you like this little snippet of a story I wrote;
A woman with very curly blond hair holding her beautiful baby girl, walked down a dark street in the middle of the night, heading towards the orphanage which was one building away from the end of the street. She reached the house and listened to the sounds inside the building – children; crying, screaming, chatting and laughing, she knew her daughter would be happy and safe here – before knocking.
“Just a minute,” called an older female voice, “Come on, Josie, I need to get to the door!”
Eventually the door creaked opened. The lady who opened the door was brunette with a lot of grey streaks through her hair, she had sparkling hazel eyes and she was dressed in a plain white top with black trousers.
The lady with her baby said what seemed appropriate, “Hello, can I please leave my daughter here?”
“Yes of course, ma’am. If you would come through, just down the hall, second door on the left, our nurse’s office,” she said smiling warmly.
“Thank you, thank you very much,” the woman walked down the hall, past a blonde haired girl whom she assumed was Josie, and through the second door on the left.
As she entered the room, a younger lady looked up from her work, she was wearing a normal nurse’s outfit, her hair was a brilliant shade of bronze and her green eyes were glassy from the late hour of the night and as she took in the lady’s sad demeanour.
“Hello? What is your name?” asked the nurse.
“River, River Song,” said the lady as her daughter mumbled in her sleep.
