I Remember you, Old Friend

By im-an-elf99

Fantasy / Adventure

Chapter 1

James Robert McCrimmon stood on a crowded street corner in a busy English town. He had never been there before and found himself quite lost. He was reluctant to ask for directions with all the strange looks he received from passers-by. He couldn’t see the problem with his appearance, he had worn the same type of clothes his whole life.

He looked around and picked a street at random. With a shrug he walked down it, certain he would figure out where he was eventually.

Something caught Jamie’s eye down an alleyway to his left. What he saw sitting there made him do a double take. It had been so long since the first and last time he saw that blue Police Box.

“It’s the TARDIS!” He cried, bewildered to see it again. The memory of the TARDIS and The Doctor stuck with him his whole life. He would often have dreams about space and time travel with The Doctor, and then awake with regret for the missed opportunity to follow him.

The door to the box opened, and out stepped The Doctor. He looked up and saw someone he never expected.

“JAMIE!” The Doctor shouted, running up to him, taking his hand in both of his and shaking vigorously.

“Ummm….Who are ye?” Jamie asked, obviously confused.

The Doctor looked at Jamie, a bit surprised, though still excited at seeing his old friend. Then he realized the source of the Scotsman's confusion. “It’s me,” he said. “the Doctor!”

Jamie’s eyes narrowed at this statement. “Well ye don look like ‘im.”

“Ah, well, I’ve regenerated…nine? Yes, nine times since we last met.” The Doctor said, surprised it was that long ago.

“Regenerated…?” The poor man was still confused. He shook his head. “No, The Doctor was just a wee old chappy.”

“Yes I was a wee old chappy wasn't I…twice really, but I regenerated. It’s a Time Lord’s way of getting out of dying. It completely changes my appearance and personality, but it’s still me!” The Doctor explained rather cheerfully.

“Oh, uh…right.” Jamie said much like he used to. “But we only met once; you act like ye know me so well.”

Hearing this, The Doctor remembered that the Time Lords had whipped Jamie and Zoe’s memories. Then he realized something. The Time Lords were gone. There was nothing to stop him from giving Jamie back his memory. It would be the only good thing to come from the Time War. There would be no harm done from it either. The Time Lords only whipped their memories as punishment for The Doctor’s interfering.

The huge smile on his face grew bigger at his realization.

Without saying a word, The Doctor placed his hands on either side of Jamie’s head.

After all the people he lost in his long life, he would have this one back.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace. The dynamics between each character were interesting and kept things fresh and exciting, very much so that you would forgive it for not going deeper into the back stories of each character. ...

themyronus: Vanessa has made 'amazing' the norme. I didn't want to read this as I am waiting for the finished and polished book to come out. But then I decided to read one chapter for kicks...well hours later I finished what was posted. Fortunately, my memory is not to good and I hope I will read the book wi...

petew25: I have been reading WW2 novels for years and am a retired Marine pilot. Though the plot in some ways reminded me of the Gregory Peck classic leadership movie, "Twelve O'Clock High" I thought the author did a good job overall. The plot was believable and the characters were as well. In some places...

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.

sanbyra: This story is very well written and flows beautifully. I became engrossed in the romance element as well as the impending war. The action scenes are also depicted very well. I can't wait to read what happens next!

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...
