His hearts stopped when he realised what was going on in his home. The day had been a long and terribly draining one. Both for him and Rose. Him from facing his worst enemy and having to watch that Dalek threaten his Rose. And Rose from having to be threatened by the deadly alien and facing the Doctor’s darkest side. He felt guilty for that. For her seeing the beast in him. For her seeing him so consumed by his rage and hate and destroying need to kill the thing responsible for his pain and loss, for his solitude. He had lost his control and almost gave in to the violence of another murder. If Rose hadn’t stopped him, what would he have done after that? How would he have handled another murder, even if it was the murder of an enemy? The tight hug he had given Rose after that had let her seen how vulnerable he was. But no word had been spoken.
The Doctor had thought that tonight she might need a bit of comfort. Or maybe it was him who needed to be tacitly comforted by the blonde girl. He had just forgotten a tiny little detail: the pretty boy Rose had invited over in his… /their/ home. A pretty boy he had let in because he couldn’t refuse anything to the beautiful blonde he was falling for faster than it took him to pronounce Gallifrey. He couldn’t remember the name. For all that mattered. Rose was jeopardy friendly, and pretty boy had been openly flirting with her. She had been flattered. A beautiful girl was always flattered when a handsome boy was finding interest in her. She had brought the predator on board and the Doctor had to forget about his growing jealousy toward the boy. At least, hide it inside down like the rest of his emotions. Because he could never allow himself to love someone as bright as Rose Tyler.
