The Time Ring

I Ya I Ya Yo

The Doctor finished his work around dawn and he had to do it all alone. Jeremy didn’t come back and Matt went into his room. He had a few things to think about. The Doctor touched some sensible chord in that guy. Therefore, no one was around and the second floor was waiting.

The Doctor was ready to leave his room when he got interrupted by a knock on the door. He rolled his eyes and opened it with the most insufferable expression he could master.

“Can I help you with something?” Jeremy glared at the older man. “Alright, that’s not the answer I was waiting for” He sighed and let the young man walk in.

“I don’t know where she is. But you know, don’t you?” The Doctor shrugged.

“Not really. I didn’t see her. That’s the whole point of vanishing” He accentuated the last word. Jeremy scrunched his nose and scoffed. The Doctor grabbed his coat and walked out.

“Where are you going?” Jeremy and Mousy were so much alike. The Doctor glanced at him over his shoulder.

“Nowhere important” He closed the door behind him and hurried to the second floor.

Now that he was in front of it, it looked even more normal. It was in a solid state and nothing looked abnormal. He did the same thing that Mousy did. He walked backwards and forward, hoping for some sort of surprising door. It didn’t appear. Instead, the smell was accentuated. He leaned closer until he touched the wall with his nose.

“What the heck are you doing?” He jumped in surprise and hit his forehead against the wall. He was still rubbing it when he turned to face Jeremy.

“I’m investigating. Why are you here, anyway?” The young Cavington titled his head to the side.

“I can help you. Are you looking for something suspicious?” The Doctor frowned. That sounded so familiar. He ruffled his hair and sighed. He really missed Mousy.

While the Doctor was wallowing in his own misery, Jeremy walked closer to the wall. It was freshly painted a cream color and nothing looked out of place. It was in perfect shape. However, when his eyes moved on the lower side, he saw a few lines. He leaned in and trailed the soft lines with his fingers. At some point, he felt a breeze on his palm. He blinked a few times in surprise. He checked to see if the Doctor was looking at him. He wasn’t. He stuck his hand foreword and gasped.

“Um, I think I found what you were looking for” The Doctor moved his head towards the young man and gasped. Jeremy had his hand gone through the wall. The time lord was left perplexed and a little scared. The Cavington family was something.

“No name Doctor had a TARDIS iyaiyayo. And one day it fell in London, iyaiyayo. The Doctor here, the Doctor there. The Doctor is everywhere but not here” She stopped singing and sighed. She was stressed. The Doctor didn’t even know about the wall. He might as well never figure it out. No. She shook her head quickly. “No name Doctor had a friend, iyaiyayo. That friend got in deep crap trouble, iyaiyayo. Mousy here, Mousy there, Mousy fell through the FREAKING WALL”

“Hey. Shut up” She glared at the guard and stuck her tongue out. The intimidating and weird looking man only rolled his eyes and turned in his original position. He already got used to her. She was a pain in the ass.

“I am whining. Can’t a girl whine anymore?” He ignored her. “Asshole”

A few hours later, Mousy found it impossible to stay awake and wait helplessly for her savior to appear. Therefore, she forced herself to fall asleep. She woke up when someone opened the cell door. The noise was pretty loud and it echoed throughout the whole cell. She opened one eye to see what was happening around her. There were three crow men inside. One was unlocking the chains and another was talking to the guard. She closed her eye quickly when the third one turned towards her. She felt him wrap his arms around her waist and legs and raised her.

They walked for a few minutes until he placed her down. It was colder than her cell. She was curious where exactly he took her. The wall wasn’t that big. She opened one eye to investigate. She was right in front of their supposed ship. Her eyes widened and she got up slowly.

“That’s your ship?” The butler crow man walked in front of her and stuck his hand out. She raised an eyebrow and glanced between his face and his hand. “Should I take it?” He nodded. She felt really stupid. She was from a rich family but she didn’t really have a classy behavior.

“I am honored to show you my home” He pushed a button and the metallic door opened. Her eyes widened even more when she entered. It looked like a digital book. She raised her hand and touched one. It was the Second World War.

“That’s incredible!” Her frown curved into a grin. She was amazed.

“It’s different than what you imagined, isn’t it Miss?” She blinked quickly and rubbed her eyes. It looked like a dream. Like all these historical events became scenes in one’s mind.

“This is so much better than the TARDIS”

“I beg to differ!” Mousy turned towards the entrance and glared.

“You are late” Her eyes moved slowly towards the person behind the Doctor; the one who was ogling around. “Jeremy” He looked like a deer caught in the headlight. Her gaze was so heavy and dark that he slowly hid behind the Doctor. “Why are you here?”

“We came to save you?” The Doctor was confused. She looked fine. She had the courage to offend the TARDIS. “You are not in danger” Mousy bit the inside of her cheek and placed her hands on her waist.

“Really. And how did you figure that out? Because I am free? Because I actually enjoy some other alien flashy thing except yours?” Jeremy straightened and walked in front of the Doctor.

“What?!” He was torn. Should he kick his butt or kick hers? “Did you do something perverted?” The Doctor and Mousy widened their eyes and stared at his perplexed.

“Ew! No! Look at him/her! She/He’s a pain! I would never do something like that with him/her” It was amazing how they said everything in synch. Even the crow men were surprised. They scoffed and turned their heads to opposite directions.

“Wait. Let’s get back to the problem at hand. Why is auntie’s butler here?” Jeremy was smarter than he looked. The Doctor gave him that. He knew when to speak and when to hide.

“My name is Julius. I am the leader of the human research team. We came here in the year of 1000 and we’ve been hiding in this house for 100 years. Our spaceship lacks energy. The Time Ring is our only hope. Amanda is our only hope. We want to go back to Corolla”

“Wait. Are you talking about the planet with no light Corolla?” Julius nodded.

“Exactly. The planet that lies in darkness because of the Time War” He walked inside the ship and invited them to follow him. Mousy and Jeremy did it very excitedly. They were really alike; even their personalities and childish antics. It almost made the Doctor smile.

“Isn’t this amazing?” Jeremy whispered to his sister. She glared at the Doctor. “Are you going to glare at him every single time I say something?” She scoffed. “Come on, Mouse. We both know I would have found out, eventually” She sighed and rubbed her forehead.

“But not like this. It’s dangerous” They both glanced around to see everyone bothered with their own business. “It was dangerous. At least it’s going to be” She didn’t believe her own words. The men from Corolla only wanted energy.

“While the Time War, the Time Lords and Daleks stole Corolla’s central energy ball. It left us in complete darkness. With no light our faces became pale, our eyes became black and many of us died of diseases. They stole our sun” He didn’t look as mad as were his words. He looked like he already gave up on his revenge plans.

“Why did you come to Earth?”

“For help. We heard about the humans and their amazing qualities to invent, to hope for better and to improve” He swayed his hand a little and one of the images came flying in front of his face.

“But there was no high technology when you arrived” Julius shook his head.

“We learned that humans are indeed amazing and improve quickly. But we also noticed their fear of the unknown. When humans get scared, they fight and kill. We ran away and hid. We heard rumors about the last Time Ring. We felt hope once again. We could re-create our sun. We could cultivate once again and continue to live peacefully”

“Wait, wait, wait. Re-creating a sun is impossible. You need a huge amount of energy. The ring doesn’t possess that much e-“Julius narrowed his eyes and touched her forehead. The Doctor tried to take a step forward but two guards caught his arms and pulled him back.

“You wear it but you don’t know the powers it has” Mousy rolled her eyes.

“I’ve seen some of it. Believe me, I learned not to underestimate this tiny object. But I can’t make a sun”

“You can” Suddenly, the Doctor became really worried. He knew what Julius was trying to say. “If they charge your body with enough energy, it will be absorbed by the ring. You will explode and the energy will be sent into the ball” Her head snapped to Julius.

“But you said you don’t want to kill me” The crow man shrugged. “You lied only to make me trust you”

“I only hid the details. That is something I learned from humans” The Doctor glared at the taller man.

“You know nothing about humans, then. They don’t hide this kind of details. They are stupid enough to tell you everything”

“Hey!” Jeremy and Mousy were offended.

“It doesn’t matter now. You are inside the ship already”

“Oh you know we can destroy it even if we’re inside” The crow men surrounded the humans. The Doctor got pulled back. His eyes widened when Julius grabbed Mousy’s hand and placed it over the central machine. The ring started to glow and the ship started to move. That was when he got pushed off and fell on his back. “Uh-Oh”

“I think we’re going to die” Jeremy grabbed his sister’s arm and squeezed it tightly. However, he didn’t look scared. He looked excited. “Should we tell each other something cheesy to make it seem like we’re a great family?” She stared annoyingly at him.

“You watch too many movies. We’re not going to die nor leave the Earth”

“How are you so sure of that?” She sighed and turned to look at the entrance.

“The Doctor always comes when the situation is on the edge. He loves drama” Jeremy stared at his sister in disbelief. The Doctor had nothing as fast as an alien ship. They were certainly going to die.
