"Tell me again why I am talking to you and not her?" Francine Jones asked Tom.
"Martha is going through something right and I'm helping her. She is never alone with me, and that Jeremy fellow has assured me I would receive a lashing if I tried anything."
"I will let it go for now, but tell her that if I do not hear from her by the end of the week, I'm coming."
"Will do." He hung up before she could add anything else.
"Grandma worried?" Jenny asked from the kitchen.
"Why couldn’t you talk to her?" Tom asked.
"I would never have been able to talk to her without calling her gram. Besides, our relationship is all timey wimey and out of order. I just met her, but she had known this me and the next me. She’s quite fond of the next me."
"I look like I'm part of the family," she smiled.
Tom had learned to just smile when Jenny talked about things he had no clue about. He sat down and joined her for dinner. He felt a big pang of sadness when he thought about where Martha was.
"No! No! No!" Martha screamed as she entered the warehouse.
"Maybe we should contact UNIT or that Jack guy; don’t you have a friend Jack?"
"I can’t, Jeremy. They are in the UK, I'm the expert in the states, and they don’t know about Jamie. It’s perfect. We can be happy, but I just have to find him first!"
Jeremy stood by and watched his best friend throw things around the room. She was looking for Jamie, a man that was supposed to be so powerful, but he wasn’t. If he was, why was it he couldn’t escape from a facility who had the gall to put COW on their front door?
Brody Wesseler was both disappointed and flabbergasted at one Jamie Nobleman. He was thrilled when the Cryovores only played with Jamie for a while and then gave him back. Jamie had been injured mentally, but he had done it to himself. Actually, it all happened about three months ago when he tried to escape. They had lost his spawn and Lily that night. Lily was a great person, but she was fooled by that alien’s charm. Now, though, with his new situation he feared his new partner Georgia was going to be next.
Georgia Hardly slid the plate towards Jamie and stood back to see what would happen. He fumbled with his fork but he finally managed to get it to his mouth. "How are you today?" she asked cheerfully.
He opened his mouth and, like always, nothing humanely came out. Something almost like a song came out, but it no way appeared to be English. She would not be cruel like others and say things like, “Say what?” or “Come again?” She just watched him finish the meal and become drowsy.
It just didn’t seem fair. Brody loved Jamie when it came to his mind. It still worked perfectly, but he had lost his ability to speak, and was even sicker than Lily's notes said he was. That second heart he was growing? It shriveled up and died. She looked back to the bed and he was sound asleep.
Now it was time for the hardest part. At times, he would get bouts of strength that caught people off guard, so he had to be tied to the bed in restraints. Georgia didn’t know much, but she knew she had to find Martha Jones. That was the only thing he was able to say, and he needed her.
