Robin's family looked on with states of mild bewilderment as the Doctor did his little performance. Her mother seemed to be having a hard time deciding whether she wanted to look at the Doctor or Robin, but she eventually settled on the Doctor... And her expression was slowly turning from shock into excitement. Suddenly, she elbowed Dennis lightly.
"Robin, dear," she said, her voice kind, "I have two questions. One... What in the world happened to you? You're all scarred up! And two... Is this man an alien?" She seemed to catch herself then, looking almost secretively toward their neighbors' houses. "Wait, wait, you two better come inside first. Myra is the noisiest woman I've ever met and I don't want her catching wind of this." At that, she gave the Doctoe wide smile before turning around and walking toward the back door of the house.
The house was small, but had two stories, with a widen staircase meandering up the back of it. The walls were a light yellow, and lined with Hardy Plank (since it held up well against hurricanes). From the back deck, the view was spectacular. The house was on the bay, with a dock stretching out around fifty feet into the calm water. A small boat was tied to the end of it, bobbing up and down gently with the waves. On either side of the house were two huge stucco behemoths, obviously the homes of people with money to burn.
As Robin's mother went up the back stairs, her father and brother followed. Robin hooked we arm through the Doctor's... Mostly to make sure he would follow them inside.
"See, I told you they'd like you!" She told him as they followed her family upstairs. The scene inside could only be described as eccentric. In some ways, it resembled any normal household - a kitchen with appliances, a living room with a sizable television, small bedrooms with furniture... But in others, it was completely not the usual living place. There were strange gadgets everywhere, with blinking lights and whirring parts. It was not unlike the inside of the TARDIS.
"Please, Doctor, have a seat," Dennis said excitedly, gesturing to the yellow couch.
"Sorry for the state of things, we weren't expecting company. Between you and me, the neighbors have been trying to get us to move out for a long time, but I think our home has a certain charm, don't you?" Her mother was speaking quickly, bustling around the kitchen. "Do you like tea? I can make some for you. Robin always loved a good cup of hot tea, and got us all hooked." She had the same gentle Southern accent as her daughter.
"Since you missed the introductions," Robin said with a pointed look at her friend, "I'll say again. My mom is Rita, Dad is Dennis, and brother is Allen. What I failed to mention is... They're sort of... Alien enthusiasts." Allen smiled broadly, his bright blue eyes crinkling.
"Robin never got into it," her brother said, "but we like it. So what's going on, Robin? Is he really an alien?" Robin thought for a moment before a wicked smile appeared on her face. She turned toward the Doctor.
"I think I'll let him tell you. I really need a shower. So you guys can all just get to know each other!" With that, she headed to the bathroom, laughing to herself.
