Clara, just Clara

Chap 1

The First Clara

When you reach the age of eight you're taken from your family and forced to stare into the untempered schism, a gap in the very fabric of the universe. Some children are inspired, some run away and others go mad. Me, well I was inspired and perhaps driven a bit mad, it hurt you see, to look, so much pain for a child to bear. I can't tell you what the others saw but me, I saw everything. I saw my past, my future, my entire purpose for existing. My name is Clara, just Clara, I have two hearts, two Tardis', one that's an utter cow, and I was born to save the Doctor.

I know why the Doctor's Tardis hates me now, or rather her, it's because she mine first. I knew she wasn't meant to be mine so I told her stories of the Man in the Blue Box while I fiddled with her navigational system. Once I was done I set her off to the junk lot and told her she'd have to wait. I can't believe she held a grudge all that time especially since I led the Doctor right to her.

I waited a while after he left before I made my way to my second Tardis. She was beautiful, my Nina, looking like a freshly lacquered and brilliantly blue police box. I rub her side lovingly before slipping inside, it's a shame we won't have much time together. Gliding over to her console I call a hello and pull her screen closer to stare at the Doctor's picture. "Run, run you clever boy, to me and your destiny."

My smiles droops a bit as I eye the fob watch hanging from my Nina's console. "Well Nina, it looks like our time is almost over." My Tardis' lights dim and I give a crooked grin trying to reassure her. "Don't worry darling, you may find me again. My last stop's going to be London, but for that I'm going to need a bit of help." Flipping a few levers I pull off the brake and laugh. "Let's head to Cardiff first, yeah?" My Nina brightens a bit and off we go.

My name is Clara, well it's not just my name but my title and my promise. I have two hearts, a thousand lives, one face and I was born to save the Doctor and maybe, just maybe someone else as well. I'm not the original Clara but I am the first and while my journey may be almost over it might also be just beginning.

Please Review.
