Summary: Jack's curse is waiting; River's is knowing.
Jack and his date had just ordered dinner when he spotted a familiar head of curly hair at the bar.
She looked wistful, probably over something her personal time-travel code wouldn’t let her share. To cheer her up, Jack suggested they compare notes on recent conquests.
He’d added two of the Rolling Stones and one Oscar winner, while River could now lay claim to members of three of the royal families of Europe.
“Who’s that?” River asked, glancing at Jack’s table.
“Torchwood’s new bookkeeper. She looks good in a mini-skirt.”
River chuckled, and winked brazenly in Rosalind’s direction.
