Story written for writers30days Round 1



She asks him to trust them, but really, can he honestly trust her? He's learned in the long, arduous course of his life that the only one he can really trust is himself, and even that is a dubious act at the best of times. He doesn't know her yet and he remembers her parting words to him after Amy had brought him back from non-existence.

"You're going to find out very soon now, and I'm sorry, but that's when everything changes."

That time is creeping up ever closer on him, but he still doesn't know her yet and all his instincts are telling him not to trust and his memory seems to enjoy in reminding him of the painful, dark times where he once made an effort to try.

And yet, she whispered his name in his ear when they first met, his real name.

There is only one time he would ever tell someone his name and his future self must've trusted her implicitly, but he is not that Doctor yet and he doesn't know who she is.

He simply can't trust her until he does and even then, he still may not trust her. Time can be re-written.
