"Get up y/n!" You heard your best friend Sophie call to you from the living room. You groan and look over at the clock on the bedstand and see that you have an hour before you have to go to an job interview. Sophie is your best friend, you went to school with her and she let you stay with her and Craig until you found a suitable flat. You needed a job to start saving money to buy one and Craig mentioned that there was a nice department store near where the two live and you were somewhat excited, but not at the same time.

"Come on y/n, I'm leaving soon!" Sophie says as she shakes you awake on the sofa. Craig walks in with Alfie, who's rubbing his sleepy eyes and waiting for his breakfast.

"Alright Sophie, I'm up! " Sophie plans on leaving for the weekend, so it would just be you, Craig and the baby. Craig insists he can take care of Alfie by himself, so you will try to spend as much time away so he can prove to Sophie he can. You head to the bathroom to get dressed and ready for your interview. While you're in the shower, you were certain that Craig was talking to someone in the house and you heard this weird high pitched noise for a few moments but then it stopped when you came out.

"Craig, was someone here?"

"Just a friend. He came by to visit, nothing to worry about!" Craig smiles nervously, as if he was hiding something.

"Alright, well, I'm ready to go. Do you need anything at the store while I'm there?"

"No no no. I can take care of my own son, I can get whatever I need, thanks."

"Oi, I was just asking!" You say, and then you sigh and grab your purse. You wave good-bye to Craig and Alfie then walk out the door.

When you enter the store you walk to the front desk and ask for the manager, but no one comes. The woman at the counter picks up a phone and calls for the manager, and when she's done she puts down the phone saying-

"He'll be out in a minute, he's with another employee. Something about needing a name tag."

"Alright, I'll be in the toy department when he's ready." You figured then you could get Alfie a toy, it wouldn't be considered helping Craig it would just be a gift. It takes you a few minutes to get to the toy department and when you walk into the first aisle you see you find Craig talking to someone. You walk up to them, being careful not to interrupt their conversation.

"I'm the Doctor. I work in a shop now. I'm here to help! Look, they gave me a badge with my name on it in case I forget who I am. Very thoughtful as that does happen." You giggle and the two turn around to look at you.


"Ah, how may I help you? I'm the Doctor!"

"Yeah, I see that." You point to his name tag and he looks down.

"Right, forgot I had that. Do you know Craig?" You nod.

"I'm bunking at his place until I find a job to buy a flat. "

"And you're not supposed to be helping me!" You cross your arms.

"Just because I'm in the toy department doesn't mean I'm helping Craig. You never told me you had a friend who's a doctor." The Doctor and Craig both shake their heads.

"He's not...really a doctor. He just helps people." You frown.

"Doctor's help people Craig."

"No, I mean, he doesn't work in a hospital. He's called the Doctor. By the way, what are you doing here?" He turns to the "Doctor".

"I've traced the electrical disturbances to somewhere in this store." Electrical disturbances? So, he's a Doctor but he does electrical work? Craig needs help making friends.
