AU: Rory spends some quality time with his granddaughter at the zoo.
"Do you see the owl hiding back there in the tree?" Rory asked, pointing into the exhibit.
"Yes…" Freya replied standing on her tippy-toes to get a better view. "I think so."
"Did you know that owls can turn their necks all the way around?"
"You already asked me that, Grandad!" Freya proclaimed with feigned exasperation, stomping her foot for emphasis. She was getting a bit antsy standing around in one place; she certainly had her father’s spirit and lack of patience.
"Sorry!" Rory said defensively. "I’m old. Sometimes adults forget what they’ve said."
"Well, Mummy always says the same thing," Freya added. "Is that because she’s old?"
"Oi!" Rory exclaimed in defense of his daughter. "If your mum’s ‘old’ then what does that make me?"
Freya just shrugged and continued talking. “She says, ‘Grow up. Stop being silly.”’
"Does she say that to you?"
"No, she says that to Dad," Freya explained.
Rory couldn’t help but laugh at his granddaughter’s frankness.That sounds exactly like something River would say to The Doctor.
