“Mollie~,” you coo for your roommate's cat, who of which had escaped out of the apartment when you answered the door for the pizza man. You search the halls, hoping to find Mollie before the pizza back in the apartment gets cold. You then come to a crossroad of halls, and can't decided which to go down.
Suddenly there’s a scream down the hall to your right, and you turn and peek down the hall to see what’s happening. There’s a woman at the very end of the hall, she’s been knocked down and is slowly being dragged across the floor by a small silver animal of some sort. The woman is no longer screaming, she had fainted. Your breathing picks up and gets louder, the small silver creature turns it’s head in your direction as if it can hear you breathing.
You can’t hold it in, and scream. You pull herself up and run towards the apartment, but stop in front of the door. You sigh,” Mollie.” You then hear fast paced footsteps coming towards you, and you turn around abruptly.
He’s close, very close, too close for comfort. He’s wearing a brown suit with a white undershirt and a red bowtie, his brown hair flopped over to the left side of his head. Your (e/c) eyes stare straight into his dark green ones, both of you are trying to stare the other down.
After a few moments the silence breaks with a light feminine voice,” Doctor, we don’t have time for this.” You turn to see a lovely ginger girl, and another man behind her. She has a Scottish accent.
“Quite right Pond,” he backs up giving you room to breath,” You ma’am were screaming.” He pointed to you,” Why?” You notice he has a British accent.
“U-um,” you were in a bit of a shock but managed to get it out,” I just saw a woman get kidnapped by a little silver thingy-animal, I don’t know what it was. All I know is that I was scared and I should have helped her-,” He claps his hands over your mouth.
With a smile he said,” Slow down.”
You nod, not realizing you were talking so fast. “I was out looking for my roommate’s pet cat Mollie when I heard a scream down one of the halls, so I looked to see who it was.”
“What did you see,” he has interest in your story.
“A-a little silver, thing. It looked like an animal, but now that I think about it whatever it was had to have been a machine of some sort.”
“What was it doing,” He seems to have more interest in the story.
“It somehow had gotten the woman unconscious, and it was dragging her away. I tried to hold myself together, but when it looked at me the scream just came out.” You realize how scared you were of that little thing.
A look of alarm washed over his face,” it saw you?”
“And it didn't attack you?” He’s surprised at that.
“I don’t think I gave it a chance, I ran away as fast as I could.” You laughed at yourself a bit.
The ginger girl and the other guy look at you weird. The strange man in front of you just smiled a bit, he truly is a strange one.
The other man next to the ginger glaces around,” Shouldn't we go inside or something?” He too has a british accent.
You nod,” Of course,” You open the door,” Come in please. There’s pizza on the counter.”
You all walk in, and you walk over to the living area.
“Who are you people anyways?” You ask sitting on the couch.
“Well,” The man with the red bowtie picks up a slice of pizza,” I’m the doctor.”
“Okay...” You’re not even gonna ask.
“And these are my companions, Amy Pond,” The ginger girl,” and Rory Pond,” the other man.
“Hi,” Amy gave a half-hearted smile. Rory does the same.
“And what’s your name miss?” The Doctor asks.
“(y/n),” You get up and grab a slice.
“That’s a pretty name,” Amy points out.
You shrug,” If you say so.”
“So this little silver device you saw,” the doctor gives a moment to chew,” can you tell us anymore about it? The details, what it looked like?”
You think back to those moments, which happened not too long ago, and realize you did notice a few other things about it. “Well it had holes for eyes, but I don’t think it actually has any. It had a mouth as well, though I never saw it open. It was bigger than a mouse, but smaller than a house cat.” You think harder but to no avail,” that’s about it.”
“What do suppose it is Doctor?” Rory picks up a slice of pizza, as well as Amy.
“Well,” he thinks a moment,” You said it was silver?”
“Do you think it could be a Cyberman?” Amy asks with hesitation.
“No, Cybermen can’t be that small.” The doctor looks at Amy like she’s bonkers.
“She means like something they created,” Rory comes in for the save.
The doctor hops onto the couch next to you,” That is a very good question.” He hops up from the couch.
“Like a cyberman pet?” Amy asks.
The doctor gives her that ‘you’re bonkers’ look again,” It wouldn't be called a Cyberman pet. It’d be called a Cyberpet.”
This conversation has you confused,”Cybermen? Cyberpets? What are you people talking about?”
For a brief moment they give you a confused look, but then they realize you’re a normal person who doesn't get this stuff.
“Oh um-,” Amy stutters,” w-well.”
“Cybermen are humans that have been turned into robots,” the doctor states.
“Who have no real emotions anymore,” Amy pointed out.
“And they come from a parallel world,” Rory takes a bit of pizza.
“And they have come to our world to take it over and turn everyone into cybermen,” the doctor folds his arms and smiles.
Silence takes over for moment as you let it sink in,” So these ‘cybermen’ are emotionless cyborgs who come from an earth in a different dimension. Who have found a way into our dimension and plan to take us all and turn us into emotionless cyborgs like them...?”
They nod in unison.
You fling your arms up in the air,” Okay, I give up!” You stand,” Feel free to leave when you're finished eating, and have a good day.” You walk into your room, and shut the door behind you as fast as you can. ‘What’s with these people?’ You have a headache from all of the adrenalin, and lay down for a nap.
