The Doctor averted his eyes, wondering if he could successfully propel the cup behind his back, into the incinerator, from his current position. “Of course, I knew that you’d notice! I always say, ‘that Rose Tyler is an impeccable noticer! She’s a regular Sherlock, she is.’ Tell that to everyone I meet - just ask around.”
Rose lifted her left eyebrow and then quickly reached behind the Doctor to make a grab for the cup just as he was about to throw it.
“Ha!” she said, grabbing onto it. But the Doctor was quicker. His grip on the cup tightened, beginning a tug of war between them that he would have found impressive, if not for the pervasive fear he felt of what she might find written on the cup should she win. He jerked her into his body, trying to gain the advantage, and was proud to see the resulting flush to her cheeks. He smirked.
“Take that!” he yelled with a manic grin, because victory seemed a certainty. Cut to Teaspoon
