“Rory!  How’s my favourite Centurion?”

Rory hadn’t expected to see anyone familiar on T’chn’p’l, certainly not a Yank pilot he met during the London Blitz.

Jack?  What are you doing here?”

“It’s a long story.”

“I’ve got time, if you do.”

Jack’s smile is razor-sharp.  “I’ve got nothing but.”

Rory listens, appalled.  “How do you bear it?”

“How did you?”

“I was waiting for Amy.”

“Love is powerful,” Jack agrees.  “I’ve loved many people.”

“Is that... enough?”

“There’s anger, too.  Sometimes I’m not sure I can tell them apart,” Jack murmurs, staring at the blue box at the plaza’s edge.

-- THE END --
