It was another warm sunny day and I was just down at the beach for a swim, as I wanted to cool off. The water was the perfect temperature and it felt wonderful against my skin as I swam around.
I had been swimming for a while now and I had been watching these two people on the shore. One was a tall skinny man who was in a striped suit with brown spiked hair and the other was a tall ginger haired woman who was in shorts and a t-shirt.
I had been watching them since they had arrived and believe it or not they had came out of an old blue police box. I thought I was seeing things when it appeared but it just appeared out of no where, as if by magic.
I was still watching them as I swam and I wondered who they were and why the man was wearing a suit when he was at the beach. I swam further away from the shore as I went with the tide and I went to put my feet down on the sand but I couldn't feel it beneath my feet.
I didn't panic though as I knew how to swim and I knew that I could just swim back to shore. As I decided I would swim back to shore I started swimming but the tide kept pulling me back.
I didn't know what to do as I tried to swim to the shore but failed and was pulled further away from the warm golden sand where people were. I was going to shout for help but how pathetic would I look?
I continued to try and swim but this time it wasn't the tide that stopped me; it was the huge wave that came crashing down over me. I instantly began to panic at this point as I struggled to get to the surface as another wave came over my head.
My breath was instantly knocked out of me and my eyes were wide as I looked around and tried to get to the surface, but I couldn't tell up from down, from left to right anymore. I was panicking slightly as my heart pounded against my chest at an abnormally high speed.
I could feel myself needing air and I looked around at my surroundings wondering where the surface was. At that moment I began kicking my legs forcing myself upwards and just as I broke the surface, I took a breath only to breathe in water as another wave crashed over my head sending me back under.
I could feel the panic inside me increasing rapidly as I tried to cough up the water only to breathe in more of the liquid in a final choking rush. The cold liquid went in to my lungs and I felt my throat burning as the liquid filled my lungs. I always thought drowning would be peaceful but it wasn't it was painful and then the blackness was coming for me.
A ringing noise took over my hearing as I saw little grey dots dancing in front of my eyes. My vision was narrowing like a long tunnel, as the sides of my vision went grey and I was trying not to succumb to the blackness that was trying to take over me. Then as I felt the world cease to exist I lost consciousness knowing that no one was coming for me.
Everything was pitch black, I couldn't see anything and I was freezing cold as I felt coldness creeping under my skin. I wondered where I was and I was trying to think when I distantly heard a voice.
"Breathe! Come on stay with me!"
I felt heavy pressure on my aching chest and I wished it would stop, I felt the need to breathe but that need was blocked, unable to draw in air. As the pressure on my chest ceased, I felt something cold dripping on to my face, I felt something warm but wet on my lips, I felt pressure on my nose and I felt air being literally forced in to me. I felt the pressure return, but it was more intense than before, like it was persuading me to return. I heard more voices and I wished they would just let me sleep and rest.
"Donna help me out here,"
"Fine move over Spaceman,"
"You do compressions,"
"Okay skinny boy just hurry up,"
I felt the pressure on my chest stop and then I felt the warm sensation on my lips again. It seemed to linger there longer than before and I felt the need to cough. I couldn't move any part of my body and my eye lids felt so heavy.
"Come on! Breathe!"
I felt the pressure on my chest again and I wanted to scream in pain, then the warm sensation was back. I coughed slightly and I felt the warm sensation disappear. I coughed harshly and I felt myself being turned on to my side as a hand patted my back.
"That's it, cough it all up,"
"Nice going Spaceman. I didn't know that aliens knew this sort of stuff,"
"I think she's coming to,"
Water spewed past my lips and I gasped in every sweet breath trying to get air in to my hurting lungs. When I had finished coughing, I was turned on to my back and I felt myself regaining consciousness.
I groaned as my eye brows knitted together and as I blearily opened my stinging eyes. Every object blurred beyond familiarity, I blinked slowly a few times and the unfocused concerned face of a man filled my vision as he hovered over me.
It was the man from the beach and his brown hair was now soaking wet, his brown eyes were focused on me and he had a little smile on his face. I noted to myself that he was quite handsome as I watched drops of water fall from his face, then I sat up slowly with his help and I saw the ginger haired woman kneeling beside me.
"Are you alright?" The man asked.
I looked back at him to see he was completely soaking wet and his hand was on my shoulder as his eyes looked right in to mine. I wondered what had happened and I coughed again, clearing my throat.
"I think so... what happened and who are you?" I asked, my voice rough and croaky.
"I'm The Doctor. You're lucky that Donna was watching the water otherwise you'd have drowned and you're lucky that we know first aid too," The Doctor replied as he pointed over at the ginger haired woman.
"Doctor what?" I asked.
"Just The Doctor," The Doctor smiled.
I coughed up a bit of water as I coughed once again and the woman Donna instantly patted my back. It was strange that I had just met them, yet I felt safe with them around me.
"Thanks," I coughed.
"'s alright," Donna replied.
"Anyway thanks for saving my life," I said.
"No problem," The Doctor smiled.
"I guess I should be going," I told them.
"Alright but you be careful," Donna said.
"I will. One last thing though, what's that police box for?" I asked.
"Well it's kind of hard to explain, but it's a time travel machine sort of like a space ship. You can have a look, if you want to," The Doctor suggested.
"Sure," I smiled.
As I told them my name, I stood up slowly to my feet, with The Doctor's help as he held my right arm. As I walked across the warm golden sand I felt it between my toes as I walked barefoot, with them beside me, towards the police box.
We reached it soon and The Doctor put a key in the lock, then turned it to open the door. He turned to me with a smile plastered on his face and he pushed the door open slowly as he stepped inside.
I walked in behind him with Donna behind me and I stared at the large room in awe. It was so breath taking and bright as I looked around at it, I couldn't believe it as walked up the ramp and towards the main console where The Doctor stood.
"So what do you think?" The Doctor asked with a grin.
"It's just so..." I trailed off.
Donna just laughed as she shut the door behind her as she walked up the ramp to join me and The Doctor. The Doctor began flicking switches and buttons then he turned to me with a smile on his lips.
"Do you want to go for a trip?" The Doctor asked.
"A trip where?" I asked.
"Where ever you want," The Doctor smiled.
I nodded as he pulled down a leaver and then the room shook as the old engines of the time machine groaned. I wondered where we were going and as it shook the three of us fell backwards. As I laughed I looked at the two new people I had met and I was glad that I had met them.
