"Did Owen die?"

Jack didn't turn around. "How did you know?"

Martha set her hand on his shoulder. "I saw the way you looked when he died." She paused. And then, said, quietly, hesitant, as if speaking a foreign language, "You still look that way."

He turned around, but didn't look at her. "Toshiko, too."

She jerked out her arm and grabbed his hand. She waited until he looked down at her before saying, "I'll come work for you."

Jack tensed and shook his head sharply. "No."

Martha took a step towards him. "I'm not letting you make that choice for me. You need a doctor and I'm -" she fell back when Jack flinched. She took a deep breath and closed her eyes tightly before opening them up again. "It's important to me that I'm there to help people I love."

"It's - "

"Something I'm willing to risk."

"Well, then, Martha Jones," Jack said, this time grabbing her hand as he smiled. "I'll lead the way."

Martha hoped that she didn't imagine the spark of life in his haunted eyes.
