Donna's divorce had finally come through. It was a short-lived marriage. Doomed before it had even begun. Donna had received a lottery ticket on her wedding day. To this day she still didn't know who had left it with her Grandad for her - and she wasn't sure if she wanted to smack them or hug them. That night she had won 23 million pounds - triple rollover. Talk about a stroke of good luck; she was overjoyed. What better way to start married life than with a heap of cash in the bank?

Apparently what they say is true - money can't buy you happiness. Donna was quick to realise that with 23 million pounds in the bank Shaun was a lot less interest in her and a lot more interested in her bank account. She figured that maybe it was just excitement, after all, neither of them had ever had very much money, it was an exciting time. But when the impulse buying didn't seem to stop Donna began to see it wasn't just the initial excitement.

She had barely touched a penny of the money for herself. She had paid off the mortgage on her mum's house and had treated herself to a few pairs of shoes and a few outfits. And she had browsed a few house sites looking for a love nest. But in the same amount of time Shaun had blown money on expensive casino trips with his mates, a motorbike, new gadgets, champagne parties and other needless things. Donna was all for having a good time, but it seemed that once Shaun got with his mates she became invisible. When he bought a yacht despite not liking water, she drew the line and filed for divorce.

It was a long, slow, tedious process. And Shaun fought tooth and nail to try and get his hands on half her money. In the end the judge ruled that he wasn't entitled to a penny because lottery winnings were not "matrimonial property". She left him with his yacht and his motorbike and their crappy rented apartment and she moved back in with her mum and grandad until she could look for a place of her own.

What she needed, she decided, was a night out. A nice, normal night out so she could just forget about all the drama back home and just relax. She phoned Veena, and agreed to meet in the pub at seven.

That was two and a half hours ago. Veena hadn't shown, just sent a text to say she couldn't make it. Great. Just what Donna needed. She could've called Nerys, but that was probably worse than sitting alone. And that is how she came to be sat at the bar cradling a glass of wine and a bag of pork scratchings; and most likely verging closer to the side of drunk rather than sober.

He shouldn't do this. He knew he really shouldn't, but when the Doctor came out of the loo, he couldn't believe the sight he saw -- Donna Noble. Ok, that was a lie, he knew she would be here, but he knew he shouldn't be tracking her, shouldn't be watching.

And yet after everything screaming at him not to do so, he walked up to sat down. "Can I get you a drink?" She would probably recognize him, not as who he really was, but that one day in her house.

Had he mentioned he was bloody stupid?

"I'm not talking!" He whispers harshly, which wasn't actually whispering at all, and he stiffles a giggle as she drags him to the kitchen.

Once inside, his eyes roamed around. "You're gonna get us caught." He pokes her in the shoulder as he passed her to lean against the counter.

She had leaned in to kiss his cheek, but with confusion mixed with alcohol, she missed. Only to have him turn, bringing their lips together, kissing her.

Pulling back quickly, he looked a little shocked. "Erm... R-Right." And he turned to leave, smacking into the door, before offering a silly laugh before finding the door handle. "I'll just... see myself out, yeah?"

"How about dinner instead?" He spoke the words before he realized what he was saying. He probably looked equally as shocked as Donna did right now.

"I mean, you don't have to, of course. If lunch is better for you..." He rubbed at his eyelid, wondering how long would it take Donna to be pushed over the edge?

"Maybe the park..." He mused, placing an elbow on the table and cradling his chin.

Their food came and they chatted while they ate when he noticed the sun lowering slightly. "C'mon, should take that walk before it gets too dark." Although Donna wanted to argue, he paid for the food before encouraging her to follow.

A couple days go by, and their plans started shaping out, mostly through e-mail, given the Doctor decided to keep up this facade of being a professor and being busy. All the while sipping on tea inside the TARDIS and doing some routine maintenance on the old girl.

Finally the day comes and he meets up with Donna at the airport and the next thing he knew, he was on a plane with her to the US. 8.5 hours of slow travel, here he comes!

"I'm not drunk. Sooooo not drunk! And Veena is an idiot." He wasn't sure if she had told him stories or not, nor did he really care at the moment as he flopped on bed, laughing and scrubbing at his face.

In truth, he couldn't remember when he had even been this drunk in the past, and he was glad to not have spoiled any of their history together yet either. The last thing he needed was her to be drunk, say something, and she burn up in a crisp. Talk about a buzz kill.

"Have them take a break and have a doughnut. I have some coffee too..."

He folds the paper and sets it down on the table, offering her a bemused smile.

Sometimes it was a welcome relief in knowing her insults didn't go away just because her mind was blocked. Same ol'Donna as ever.

After some walking and figuring things out they find the ferry that would take them close to the falls. "C'mon!" The Doctor encouraged Donna to move faster, being overly excited about seeing the falls up close and personal.

"Donna..." He groaned, scrubbing at his face, and then offered a slight smile, "We'll see, yeah?"

He shouldn't have even contacted her, this was all wrong. It was dangerous, and even to the point he might have to adjust her memories again, which was a terrible idea in itself.

The Doctor is standing with his feet shoulder width apart, a pool stick in hand as he studies the table. Calculations and predictions are flowing through his head as possibilities arise.

Turning back to Donna, he offers a grin. "You think you can break it?" Honestly, he wasn't sure if he ever had played pool before, but it shouldn't be so hard, right?

After some time passed, back at the hotel, the Doctor flopped on his bed with a 'oof!' and rubbed at his eyes.

"We have a day left. Anything in particular you fancy doing?" And not snogging his face off would be nice.
