Chapter One: Hello, Hello
The Doctor and Amy were standing in a futuristic museum, sometime in the 55th century, but Amy couldn't be sure. The Doctor was holding one of the exhibits, a black box with something etched into one of the sides. He turned the box over, slowly looking over the inscription, and something in his expression tightened.
"Doctor?" Amy asked, leaning forward in curiosity.
The Doctor was still turning the box over in his hands, looking for something or other.
She tried again.
"Doctor? What is it?" she said, with a little more force.
"It's an inscription in High Gallifreyian. The lost language of the Time Lords, There were days, there were so many days, when these words could burn stars, raise up empires and topple gods." he said absent-mindedly running a finger along the box's metallic side.
"And what does this one say?" she questioned.
