It had been seven years since she’d seen him. They hadn’t kept in touch, but he’d promised and she had worked hard to prove herself worthy of his trust. Still, her hands were shaking as she dialled the number, explained who she was and asked for Nick.

“I’m really sorry, but Professor Cutter passed away several years ago.”

She stared at the wall in shocked disbelief. It took several moments to pull herself together.

“All right, put me through to Stephen Hart. Just tell him I wouldn’t let him carry me. He’ll remember me.”

The receptionist paused. “Oh dear ...”

Oh noes, poor Taylor!

Oh, that is heartbreaking. Cracking idea though and well done.

This is adorable, in a terribly sad kind of way. I happen to think of the fact that, if she were to ever grow older and call them up, they would be dead - every single time I watch that episode. And I happened to watch that episode today, so this was nice to be able to read it today. Thank you for writing this.

Eek! Waah! This really packs a punch. And I always have this image of grown-up Taylor following up on her pledge to work at the ARC.

at first, I thought this was Helen (then I saw the Character listed).

either way, you've crafted quite a good gut-punch.

brava.

Thanks for the kind comments. Now I remember who woke my bunny: someone briefly popped into a meeting yesterday, and left saying, "See ya," in exactly the same way that Nick said it to Taylor towards the end of the episode.

It doesn't take much to set me off!

Poor Taylor, after all that hoping and planning to find out that they're gone. (and yes, it is fiction)
