Summary: Rose knows she wants, even if she's not sure why.
Rose left the Doctor reading Blon’s egg what he claimed was an old Gallifreyan fairy tale.
She stopped to change into a nightie before going to Jack’s room. He didn’t bother looking surprised.
“It’s not because of Mickey,” she insisted.
“If Mickey could make you happy, you wouldn’t be here with the Doctor, and if the Doctor was making you completely happy, you wouldn’t be here with me.”
“Guess that makes me pretty selfish,” she winced.
“Don’t worry,” he said, kissing her neck, “I’m a pretty selfish guy myself, and tonight Rose Tyler, that makes you a very lucky girl.”
