No matter how many times the Doctor brought Donna to a new, wonderful place, she never really became immune to the amazement of seeing them for the first time.

The grass caught her eye first. It was a blue-green like she'd never seen before, almost iridescent in appearance. Her eyes drifted upward to the mountains and her breath caught in her throat. It was, even from this distance, the most beautiful thing she'd ever seen.

"And that is the Leisure Center/Hotel Complex Number 57 Delta Ten Calaxia," he added, pointing to the giant complex that dwarfed the TARDIS that was parked in front of it. "Sixteen levels of entertainment. Something for everyone, they say!"

Donna looked over at Ianto and Jenny, curious to see their reactions, before her eyes rested on the Doctor's retreating back. She let out a small huff. "Right then, let's not waste any time..." she muttered, leaving Jenny and Ianto behind as she followed him, not keen on the idea of getting separated from him so early upon arrival.

Ianto was marvelling at the purple skies and the blue-green grass beneath his feet. He grabbed Jenny's hand on his own, and started walking behind the Doctor and Donna, not wanting to lose them just yet. He'd have to ask for directions to the food quarters - if that's what it was called - because he was beginning to feel hungry, and it was as great an opportunity as any to keep his promise to Jenny.

"Come on, let's get going." He told Jenny, urging her to walk faster, which would certainly not pose as a problem.

Without Ianto taking her hand, it was possible she might have gotten lost from not paying attention. The mountains glittering like frozen rainbows in the sunslight, the blue-green almost iridescent grass, it was all such a distraction for her. No wonder they'd made this planet a leisure one - it was simply gorgeous! She couldn't wait to begin to explore and discover even more wonders!

Jenny couldn't quite hold back a sigh as Ianto started moving faster, but she took her eyes from the sights all around and jogged a moment to catch up with him. "Sorry, sorry. Got a bit distracted there."

The Doctor extended his elbow companionably to Donna as she caught up, keeping to his slow ambling pace. He peered behind to catch Ianto hurrying Jenny along.

"Our love birds are keeping up," he commented lightly, a grin playing on his face as they reached reception and he ushered Donna in like a gentleman.

The reception was warmly lit, with high ceilings and austere fittings - chandeliers and warm mahogany banisters. It was more like something out of an old movie, rather than an alien world... that is until one took in the receptionist. Her whiskers twitched, as she beamed a sharp-toothed smile at them and blinked her three eyes in quick succession.

"Welcome to Calaxia, part of the Cerus 3 Leisure Worlds. How can I be of service?"

The Doctor flipped open a small brown leather card. "I'm The Doctor, plus three friends. We had a booking."

"Oh, how very strange, you don't appear to be on the system. Please excuse our mistake. Luckily we have several rooms available." She tapped the screen in front of her and The Doctor smiled brightly.

"Not a problem, happens all the time."

Donna linked her arm with the Doctor's, albeit hesitantly after Jenny's teasing comment earlier, and walked beside him.

"Our love birds are keeping up,"

Donna, too, looked over her shoulder at Jenny and Ianto, smiling before turning to look forward again. "You're taking it very well, considering. Most dads sort of freak out, you know," she said lightly, smirking up at him as he ushered her into reception.

One look around the place made it look beautiful, albeit plain, until she spotted the receptionist. The Doctor was spinning another line of bullshit and the receptionist was buying it hook, line, and sinker. Donna wondered, fleetingly, how he always managed to do that with little to no effort on his part. She'd never admit it to him, but Donna thought if maybe she paid closer attention once in a while, she could learn a thing or two.

"Not to be a spoilsport," she said slowly, looking up at the Doctor as she unlinked her arm and stepped back from him, "but I'm tired...I barely slept a wink last night..."

"Not to be a spoilsport," she said slowly, looking up at the Doctor as she unlinked her arm and stepped back from him, "but I'm tired...I barely slept a wink last night..."

"Not a problem," The Doctor replied. "Don't sleep all day though, there's some great things to see around here."

The Doctor gently picked up Donna's hand and placed it on the counter next to his own. The receptionist stamped something on each of them, which tingled for a moment and then just looked like any ordinary sticker. It read 57 Delta Ten Calaxia and gave a room number below, 370alpha1 and 370alpha2. It was stuck firmly to the back of their hands.

"There's your room keys, Sir, Mam. Your rooms have views of the Calaxian Ranges, complimentary room service and if you need anything just ask the building computer by using the built-in voice recognition in the hand chip."

"Not a problem," The Doctor replied. "Don't sleep all day though, there's some great things to see around here."

Donna opened her mouth to reply, but was distracted by the Doctor taking her hand and the receptionist stamping it. After half-listening to the receptionist's instructions, Donna looked back up at the Doctor. "Well, then you'll just have to wake me up, won't you?" she asked lightly, giving him a bit of a shove and grinning.

She sighed and looked over her shoulder at Jenny and Ianto. She wasn't interested in the Doctor the way Jenny was in Ianto, but watching them did make her feel a bit lonely. Maybe the Doctor wouldn't be so bad?

Donna crinkled her nose. I did not even just think that. Not even at all, she thought snappishly at herself. "Oi, yeah, it's time for me to take a nap," she concluded aloud.

It was really quite lovely in the reception area, wooden banisters, plush carpets, decorated walls, and fantastic dangling chandeliers; in fact, Jenny paid more attention to the decor than to the receptionist, having seen stranger than a whiskered alien with three eyes. Of course, those stranger things had been trying to attack her, but she had indeed seen odder beings. And the reception area was definitely worth the looking-over - it was really quite welcoming, as well as being beautiful.

Jenny beamed at the receptionist as she took the lead and led Ianto to the desk. "Hi! We're with him," she said, gesturing to her dad. She'd seen him checking himself and Donna in, so there ought not be a problem. But if there was, well Dad was right over there and capable of dealing with any issue that dared occur.

Ianto had gotten distracted looking around him at the incredibly warm reception. It was a posh place, and he wondered about payments and bookings, but as soon as the Doctor reached the desk, and presented some sort of paper, the receptionist just handed him a set of keys. They weren't even booked, but somehow, the Doctor made it look otherwise. Could that be the famous psychic paper he had heard so much about while in Torchwood One?

He smiled nervously at the receptionist when it was his and Jenny's turn to approach the desk, as Jenny quickly remarked that they were with the other two - Donna and the Doctor. He wasn't sure the receptionist would believe them.

She looked at both of them in turn, suspiciously, and wouldn't speak or move. Ianto wondered if the paper only worked for as long as it was shown, in which case the receptionist hadn't believed Jenny, and the Doctor would have to come back for them with it.

"Jenny, I don't think she's letting us in." He told her, his smile vanishing.

Donna looked over her shoulder. What were they waiting for? Was it so much to ask that they hurry to their rooms and drop off their things so that she could be left to nap in peace?

The receptionist was staring at Ianto and Jenny suspiciously.

"Jenny, I don't think she's letting us in." Ianto was saying.

Donna sighed and strode purposefully up to the reception desk. "Oi, could we move it along, please?" she asked the receptionist loudly. "They're with us, like they said, and I don't know if you knew this, but we're sort of a big deal," she said, certain it was a quote from something, somewhere, but not really caring; it wasn't like the receptionist would know it. "We're in a bit of a rush, so if you could, please," she said sternly, nodding toward Ianto and Jenny without taking her eyes off the receptionist. "While they're young, would be nice," she added.

The Doctor grinned a little, sighing at Donna's cranky behaviour. Looked like she really did need a nap. He stepped quietly to her side, bumping her shoulder gently.

"They're with us, like I said. Doctor plus three."

"Oh of course. Here we go." The receptionist went back to the computer, pulling out two more stamps to rooms adjacent The Doctor and Donna's and motioning for Jenny and Ianto to hold out their hands as she went through her welcome spiel again. The Doctor couldn't help but smile as the receptionist's left eye remained fixed suspiciously on Donna the whole time.

"Lovely! I'm going to take Donna up to the rooms so she can nap and then I plan on finding some fun! I've seen the hotel complex before, but it's rather brilliant... well at least brilliant for a hotel. You two should have a look around, meet us later if you want to."

It was half comment half question, as he fixed each of them with a curious gaze, before giving Jenny and Ianto a wide grin and turning to Donna. He held out his elbow. "May I have the pleasure of escorting you to your room, m'lady?" he joked charmingly.

Donna stared back at the receptionist; the fact that one of its eyes was fixed on Donna was not lost on her. Once everything was sorted, however, she relaxed herself and looked over at the Doctor when he began to address the group.

He held out his elbow. "May I have the pleasure of escorting you to your room, m'lady?" he joked charmingly.

Under normal circumstances, Donna would've linked arms with him right away and casually joked back, but she sneaked a look at Jenny reflexively before doing so, this time, hesitantly. She did not even want to know what sort of teasing she'd endure from the younger Time Lord later. "Right, yeah," she replied. "Thanks."

Jenny's smile had faded a bit when the receptionist had decided to be suspicious, but after Donna and her dad had dealt with the problem, her smile returned to full dazzle. Hand stamped and spiel listened to, she stepped away from the desk and gave her dad a grin. "Sounds brilliant! We'll met you and Donna later, yeah?"

She would have said 'for dinner', but she rather thought she'd be busy for dinner. Ianto had promised, after all...though he might change his mind and shoot for a later date. Who knew? But dinner, regardless of plans, was hours away and they had this huge hotel complex to explore, and the Crystal Ranges too...oooh, so much to do!

Jenny grinned as Donna took Dad's proffered arm, but decided to hold off on teasing till later. "Have a nice nap, Donna!"

Ianto waved goodbye to Donna and the Doctor, and turned to Jenny, more excited that usual.

"Right, what should we do first? Explore, eat, or...Swim?" He asked, looking at the sign boards pointing to the place of everything in that huge Hotel, and randomly picking things.

"It's all exploring - new place, new sights." She peered curiously at the signs announcing various destinations, then shrugged. They'd probably cover every public location the hotel had, so the beginning didn't really matter that much to her. "We're not really dressed for swimming, are we?" She grinned and took his hand again. "Why don't you pick a place to go first, then I will? That way we'll have a lot of fun while we see everything?"

Ianto shrugged at Jenny and looked back at the signs, clueless as to what he should suggest they do. The truth of the matter was that he'd much rather go somewhere less public and wrap his arms around her waist and bury his face in her hair again, but spending time with her like this was just as good.

"No, definitely not swimming." He said, still searching. "How about we just walk around and see where our feet take us?" Ianto really was out of brilliant ideas and exciting plans.

"Sounds wonderful. Let's go!" She took his hand again and started off, down one of the halls, at first. Though it shortly lost the title of 'hall' as it widened into a large, long open area, one wall entirely made of glass with a spectacular view of the Range. There were small seating groups scattered about, though oddly enough not many were occupied. Perhaps the other hotel guests were busy actually taking part in the varied activities offered.

About halfway down the rather large lounge, Jenny gravitated towards the window to take in the view properly. "Oh, it's beautiful." The suns were shining at exactly the right angle to make the crystalline mountains appear to be constructed entirely of rainbows - truly a breathtaking sight.

Ianto only noticed the view the second time around, when Jenny walked towards the glass wall. He blinked once or twice to take it in, because it was unlike anything he'd seen before.

"It really is." He said, pulling Jenny closer to him, his arm around her waist, as they both looked at the view some more. That was better.

Jenny snuggled into Ianto and slipped her arm around his waist, then sighed contentedly. "I'm glad we came this way," she said softly, as though not wanting to break the soft hush of the room. "I would have hated to miss this." A peaceful, quiet moment, observing nature's beauty while being held...it was exactly what she needed.

As the suns moved on and the rainbows began to fade, she stretched up and kissed Ianto gently, carried on by the magic of the moment they'd unexpectedly found.

"Absolutely, this is definitely worth the trip." Ianto said, smiling that Jenny had snuggled up against him. If there was something he wouldn't have foreseen in his near future was this: a by-the-book romantic moment. He wasn't one for romance, but with Jenny, it was different, it felt good, so why ruin it? The peace that was transmitted into him by the view was also something else. He hadn't felt like this in a long time.

Jenny's kiss sneaked up on Ianto, lost in his thoughts, but he soon let go of them to concentrate on her. He couldn't help run a hand through her hair, so soft, it was.

Jenny would have purred, were she feline, when Ianto started stroking her hair. As she wasn't, a pleased sound hummed in her throat as she continued to kiss him. It seemed different somehow, this time - not bad-different, just...different. Maybe it was the setting?

As the kiss ended, she looked up at him with shining eyes. "We...we should probably go somewhere else. Where we won't run the risk of annoying anyone."

"We...we should probably go somewhere else. Where we won't run the risk of annoying anyone."

Oh. Ianto looked from left to right nervously, no clue what to answer to that. Did she mean she was actually afraid their kissing would impose on anyone, or did she want to go somewhere else and make out in a way they couldn't do in the lounge?

Ianto simply smiled and nodded. He'd jump off that bridge when he came to it.

The lounge was very different from the fire escape; it was populated. however sparsely, and she didn't feel right continuing on with an audience. And anywhere else they could go would have people there as well...no, actually there was one or two places they could go and be alone to keep kissing and explore each other. If he wanted to explore in that direction, rather than continue to explore the hotel, of course.

Nervous and excited, she swallowed hard, then took his hand again. "Maybe we'd better explore the location of our rooms?"

Ianto was possibly sweating, now, which was the opposite of charming, but all he could do. It seemed like Jenny was suggesting they explored each other rather than the hotel, and as much as Ianto wanted to, he'd rather not do it right now. Maybe later, maybe much later. He couldn't just bring himself to go all the way today. With Jenny, he wanted to savour the moments.

"Are you sure you don't want to just stick around and explore down here some more? I'm really enjoying this..." He said, hoping, really hoping, Jenny wouldn't be offended.

Jenny wasn't offended so much as she was confused, and maybe a little hurt. Ianto definitely liked kissing her, and yet he didn't want to pursue the kissing further. Was it a cultural line she'd crossed, or something else? She didn't know, and the confusion was making her want to go wake Donna up to see if she had any answers. But that would be cruel to her sort-of big sister...she would just have to wing it on her own, and hope she didn't manage to completely alienate Ianto along the way.

It took her a moment to make sure her voice wasn't going to do anything ridiculous, but she did manage to nod and reply. "Sure, we can keep exploring the hotel. Be interesting to see what else we can find."
