Jenny sighed and hugged her dad tighter as he spoke, letting each word fall and erase that niggling doubt she mostly never thought about. Too busy with adventures and running to even notice most of the time. And now it was going completely away.

"I know Dad. Really, I do know. You'd have stayed if you'd thought there was the slightest chance..." She smiled up at him, slightly wobbly but still a strong smile. "I still don't know how come I came back in the first place, so there's no way you could've known. Anyway, we're back together now, and that's all that matters."

The Doctor smiled down at Jenny, seeing the truth in her bright eyes. While he'd always feel guilty for leaving her behind, at least she knew now.

"Yeah," he agreed. "And we're going to do brilliant things together, you and me."

His attention was suddenly dragged back to the pie-makers, who were waiting to throw another round of pies. He disentangled himself from Jenny and quickly held out his bowl as two pies were tossed their way.

"Brilliant!" he declared, before munching into his second pie with gusto, sauce dripping down his chin.

Jenny smiled up at him still, though she thought she saw a shadow in his eyes, then gently elbowed him in the ribs to knock him out of depressing thoughts. "And you stop blaming yourself for it, right? Cause you're absolutely right - we're going to be amazing, the pair of us."

She would've gone on, but the pie-makers were ready to toss another round, so she had to hold up her bowl and catch the pie en route. "Ha! I caught mine better than you did!" She gave him an impish grin, then took a bite of her pie. "Mmmm, this is so good!"

"And you stop blaming yourself for it, right?

The Doctor smiled at Jenny. "I'll try to remember that."

"Ha! I caught mine better than you did!"

Glad for the change of topic (They needed to talk, but fun stuff was just more...well, fun!), The Doctor mumbled, "Did not" around his mouthful of pie. "That was a perfect catch, mine was," he added, after he'd swallowed his mouthful. He winked at Jenny, stretching out his legs in front of him to get more comfortable.

"You better." She shook her finger at him, smirking. "If you keep brooding, I'm going to find some pool to dump you in." There. That should make him stop brooding over what can't be changed.

And they've got teasing to do and fun to be had anyway - the serious stuff can wait! "Yours may have been a perfect catch," Jenny said, "but mine was much better stylistically. More graceful and....stuff." She couldn't keep up the joking much longer - giggles were threatening to break free.

"But mine was much better stylistically. More graceful and....stuff."

The Doctor raised an inquisitive eyebrow, bouncing to a standing position and tossing the pie makers his credit chip once again. With a cheeky grin he proceeded to make a great show of pushing up his jacket sleeves and rolling his shoulders, like some sportsman warming up before a big game.

"You know what this means, Jenny?" He paused for dramatic effect. "We need a pie off!"

Rubbing his hands together, The Doctor told the pie makers, "two more please," holding up two fingers as he spoke. He then pointed to one of the customers, a young Malmoothian child who was watching the Doctor avidly and trying not to giggle. "Would you mind judging for us, young lady?" he asked and she nodded happily, her mandibles twitching in delight.

"A pie off? Oh you're on, Dad!" She giggled and bounced to her feet, and tied her bag to her belt instead of leaving it on her wrist. Have to have absolute freedom of movement for this little competition of theirs after all!

Jenny rolled her shoulders, mimicking her dad ostentatiously and playing to the small crowd that was watching them in amusement. She then winked at the Malmoothian girl who'd been picked to be their judge and held her bowl up. "Ready when you are. Prepare to be beaten, Dad!" She laughed and bounced once more, delighted at the absolute silliness they were about to engage in.

The Doctor laughed, watching his daughter play to the crowd the way he had just moments before.

"Ready when you are. Prepare to be beaten, Dad!" She laughed and bounced once more.

He winked at the little Malmoothian as well. "Ah, but it is you who need be prepared, Jenny!"

The pie makers had been working hard while the two of them had been playing to the crowd and they were almost finished with their pies.

"Oh guard!" The Doctor called, before he too held up his bowl, bending at the knees and poking his tongue out from between his teeth in a show of intense concentration.

"But I am prepared - prepared to win!" She giggled and bent at the knees just like he was - only not so much because she was lots shorter - and grinned as the pie-makers started putting the finishing touches on their pies.

"Oh I'm ready!" Jenny kept her eyes on the pie-makers, who were also playing to the crowd, as amused as any of the rest of them. They threw....

...and she caught her pie, a twist of the wrist making it circle the bowl three times before she let it settle safely within.

As the pie was thrown toward The Doctor, he threw his bowl, spinning around once, before catching it and then the pie.

He stood, bowing to the cheering crowd with a flourish and a huge grin.

Jenny laughed in delight at her dad's awesome pie-catch. With a flourish, she bowed to the cheering crowd as well, beaming at every member of it.

Finally a hush fell over the crowd as they all turned to the little Malmoothian girl, waiting to see which one she claimed as winner. Jenny smiled softly at her, encouraging her to voice her choice aloud, whichever one it was.

The little Malmoothian girl bobbed her head shyly at the good-natured crowd, wringing her hands in front of her.

"Jin- I cannot decide -Do. Jin- They are both very good -Do," she said, nervously smiling at the two competitors.

The Doctor smiled, winking at the small Malmoothian. "Well, I guess that means we both win then," he replied happily.

Jin-Do grinned widely, bobbing her head in agreement. "Jin- Yes, it is a tie -Do," she said and the crowd clapped once more.

They thanked the little Malmoothian and the Pie-makers began a new performance. Everything was happy and well, but, as so often seemed to happen, it all changed in a split second. A loud siren, reminiscent of the bomb sirens during world war one, began to sound. The Malmoothian looked around nervously. Several of them drew sharp breaths of fear, but soon they began moving quickly and in an orderly fashion as if they'd been practicing for this all their lives.

"Jin- Come, come to the shelter -Do. Jin- It is a shield alert -Do. Jin- You must come quickly -Do!" The small Malmoothian who had been their pie-throwing judge, suddenly appeared at the Doctor's side, taking his hand to lead the way.

Jenny grinned at the little Malmoothian girl and winked. "A tie is pretty good. Thanks for being our judge!" She bowed to the amused and applauding crowd, then sat back down on the bench to eat her new pie.

She didn't get to finish it though; in fact, she was only halfway through and in mid-bite when the siren went off. Jenny swallowed hard to get the lump of pie down quickly and glanced around to see the Malmoothians looking just a tich panicky before heading off quickly and almost in line. Like they'd been practicing for this siren all their lives.

Jenny hiccuped as their little judge JinDo came to tug on her dad's hand. "Bother. ~hic~ Shield al~hic~ert?" She stopped talking a moment and took a deep breath, holding it for a five-count. Hopefully that would stop the hiccups. "S'pose we should go to shelter, Dad? ~hic~ Or go find out why the shield alert is ~hic~ going off?" Dammit. She'd have to find another way to get rid of the hiccups.

The Doctor nodded at Jenny, giving her a mild slap on the back in an attempt to help with the hiccups. "Come on, let's see where JinDo is taking us. There might be someone we can ask for details there."

JinDo, tugged at his hand again, looking up at him with a frown. "Jin- We must hurry -Do." Nodding, he took Jenny's hand as well and allowed the small Malmoothian to lead the way. "Jin- It is not far -Do."

Jenny stood still for a breathless moment after the slap on the back, waiting for another hiccup. When none showed up, she nodded and took his hand as they set off for wherever they were being lead. "All right - lead on JinDo. Let's get to shelter."

One of these days, she was going to have to ask her dad if it was just her, or if they both had trouble with peaceful moments being interrupted by chaos. Because it always happened, and the only surprises were in what the particular brand of chaos was each time.

JinDo led them out of the markets, through several back streets and stopped at an open pressure-sealing door. Everywhere they walked, Malmoothians were quickly, but fairly calmly considering the fearful atmosphere, walking to similar destinations.

"Jin- We learn the safe points from when we are very small -Do," JinDo told them. "Jin- I will find my family here and you will be safe also -Do."

The rooms they entered were carved out of the crater rock, like everything else in the conglomeration. The cool rock walls were lit by periodic lamps. It was cosy and calming, despite the intense atmosphere. everyone knew their place and where they should be and the Malmoothians sat calmly, huddled together in family groups, as if awaiting instructions.

"Jin- The shelters are all connected by tunnels and pressure-sealed doors -Do. Jin- They can be used if you need to find your family group as well -Do. Jin- Or you may stay with us -Do."

The pressure door sealed closed behind them as they entered and JinDo nodded to The Doctor, releasing his hand to move across to what must be her family group. The Doctor smiled and waved at JinDo. Then, spotting another touchscreen, he moved across to it and used his sonic screwdriver to pull up the blue-prints for the emergency shelters.

"So, where to?" he asked Jenny. It wasn't that he didn't believe he was safe here, but The Doctor wasn't a man to stand about idly if there was a chance he could help somehow.

They followed JinDo through the streets and through the pressure door, preceded and followed by more Malmoothians calmly proceeding to safety. It was oddly reassuring, not having to calm people down in a crisis. But then, they'd probably been preparing for a crisis like this for generations.

The rooms they entered were oddly cozy, even though they were spartan and bare save for family groups of Malmoothians. Jenny nodded as JinDo explained the shelters to them, and smiled when she finished. "Go on to your family group so they won't worry about you. We'll be fine." As JinDo left, Jenny followed her dad to the touchscreen and peered around him as he sonicked the map into showing them how to get from shelter to shelter.

"We ought to go see if we can help fix whatever the problem is. And that one there," she said, pointing at a larger, central safe-zone. "It's probably our best bet for answers."

"Sounds like a plan," the Doctor commented. He'd been studying the maps through his glasses and he now placed them in a pocket.

There were three pressure doors, the one they'd come in, which was now locked shut, and two more. He trotted off to the left, having scouted the easiest route to the central rooms. Jenny was right, usually anyone of importance - the people running the show - would be found in the most secure location. So too would the controls and equipment for the shields, and it appeared that the larger central rooms were their best bet.

The Doctor pushed a large blue button on the front of the door and listened as the pressure seal hissed open, before he swung it open and stepped on through into the tunnel beyond.

"Let's go, then!"

Although it wasn't nice for the Malmoothians to be in this situation, the Doctor couldn't help being infected by a certain sense of glee. It just came with any unknown problem or dangerous situation. He just couldn't help it. He grinned at Jenny, as he gestured for her to follow.
