Who

Debris Field [Sci-Fi]

A far flung cluster of rocks and debris that of coalesced around a single larger piece about the size of the isle of white.. A blue box appears on the largest section.
Metakirb

Cactra walks out of it.
Who

Followed by Who and Taren.

"Okay first thing, what's wrong with this?"
Metakirb

Rocks?
Who

"No that's right there are rocks, but something's here that shouldn't be it's staring us face. Any ideas? Taren?"

He thinks, looking around.
Metakirb

Cactra shrugs.
Who

As does Taren.

"Oxygen, do you see any plants about? We shouldn't be able to breath but we are so that means....?"
Metakirb

Tardis magic?
Who

"No...and please don't call it magic."

That's news to Taren he thought it was.
Metakirb

She smiles.

Alright.
Who

"Some one else put it here?"

"Exactly! Brilliant, there's hope for you yet."
Metakirb

Cactra gives him a bit of a glare over how he phrased that.
Who

Someone needs to explain this stuff to him, seriously.

"What? So lets go see who are generous benefactor is."
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

Who smiles and starts walking, carefully stepping across the rocky surface ahead of them. Taren follows beside him, he's not used to getting attention from Dad nevermind almost positive attention.
Metakirb

Cactra follows Taren.
Who

"I'm surprised anyone's here at all. We're pretty far out."
Metakirb

We are?
Who

He nods.

"Massively, the closest inhabited world from here is about 6 billion miles that way."

Who turns around a points.

"Wow..."
Metakirb

Cactra thinks.
Who

As they walk the ground beneath them starts to get much easier to walk on becoming almost perfectly smooth. Who stops and crouches down to examine it, Taren copies him wanting to know what the fuss is about.
Metakirb

Cactra walks up to Who.
Who

"This is....unexpected just look at it."

Who runs a finger across the ground then holds it infront of him, staring intently.
Metakirb

Something wrong?
Who

"Look at the ground, completely smooth. Smooth isn't it Taren?"

"Really smooth."

Taren's smiling, he's helping!
Metakirb

Cactra nods.
Who

"Look natural to you?"
Metakirb

Should it?
Who

"I certainly hope not."
Metakirb

And does it?
Who

"Nope, someone, something made this."
Metakirb

Right.
Who

"The only question is, what did it?"
Metakirb

She shrugs.
Who

"Nevermind."

Who gets off the ground and starts walking again. Teran does likewise, he's enjoying this.
Metakirb

And Cactra follows them.
Who

As they wall they might be able to make out some shapes in the distance, they appear to be half submerged in the ground.
Metakirb

What are those?
Who

"That's a very good question."

Who starts to break in to a run, Taren tries to follow but can't keep up.
Metakirb

Cactra tries to pick him up and run after Who.
Who

No problem. As they get closer the objects'll become clear. They're ships, all have holes burned in the sides of them.

"Well this is....bad."
Metakirb

Wonder what did this.
Who

"I dunno, maybe we should have a poke around."
Metakirb

Maybe.
Who

"Not sure?"
Metakirb

well there's something that makes holes like that in ships, what would it do to us?
Who

"Probably burn us to a crisp. Why?"
Metakirb

You want to go towards it?
Who

"Of course, it's why we're here isn't it?"
Metakirb

It is?
Who

"Yeah, I thought, ooo that's a bit odd lets have a look."
Metakirb

What do you want to do Taren?
Who

"Have a look?"

He sounds unsure but Who grins.

"See, he's not scared of a few monsters."
Metakirb

Braver than me.
Who

"Really?"

Taren looks at her as Who starts examining the burn.
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"Why?"
Metakirb

I'd rather go home.
Who

Who stops his examining and turns around.

"What, seriously?"
Metakirb

I'd rather be at home than face whatever burnt holes in those ships.
Who

Who seems a little shocked.

"What? Why?"
Metakirb

I'd rather not come up against it without any way of protecting myself.
Who

"You've got me, you don't need anything else."
Metakirb

I guess...
Who

"Are you okay?"
Metakirb

Just worried about us, About Taren and Susie.
Who

"Come on, what's the worst that could happen?"
Metakirb

Do I really need to say it?
Who

Who's serious for a brief moment.

"I won't let that happen."
Metakirb

Yeah. I know.
Who

And back to normal.

"Then what' the problem. If it makes you feel any better the hole wasn't burnt."
Metakirb

It wasn't?
Who

"Nope, I'm trying to get a handle on what it was now."
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

Who whips out the ol' screwdriver and holds it in position to scan the burn when it starts sparking and heating up. He yells and drops it.

"So much for that."
Metakirb

What happened?
Who

"Screwdriver's thrown a wobbly, not quite sure why. Coming?"

Who heads through the hole in the ship.
Metakirb

She sighs and follows.
Who

Everything inside the ship is slanted due to it being buried in the ground but they're heading down so it doesn't matter, it appears to have been a commercial travel ship at some point with seats lined up, the aisle seats all appear to have been burned in the same manner as the hole in the wall.
Metakirb

Think these were filled?
Who

"With?"
Metakirb

People.
Who

"I would assume so."

Who moves through another hole leading in to what would appear to have been the engine room.

"Ah thought so."
Metakirb

Cactra follows.
Who

"The engines been trashed."
Metakirb

Oh.
Who

"By the same thing that burned a hole in the side by the look of things."

Who prepares to run the screwdriver over what remains of the engine, quiet forgetting about what happened minutes before.
Metakirb

Don't forget what happened last time.
Who

Who stops.

"Guess you're right, umm that means I'll have to find some other way of doing this."

He heads back through the door heading out of the ship.
Metakirb

More following.
Who

"Okay, I'm going to head to the other end, see if I can rip something out of the cockpit. You two wait here."
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

Off he goes.

"Mum?"
Metakirb

Yes?
Who

"Why did we come here?"
Metakirb

I'm not sure.
Who

"I don't understand."
Metakirb

She smiles.

Neither do I to be honest.
Who

"So why are we here?"
Metakirb

She shrugs.
