Hello, my name is Emma Sophie Smith and I'm going to tell you the amazing story of my life. And more important: how I met this crazy man, who changed everything.
To start I want to introduce myself to you. Like I already mentioned is my name Emma Sophie. I was born on 15th July 1992. My mum was 26 years old and my dad left her when I was 3 years old. I have no siblings, but my mum married James, a lawyer, my stepfather. There is a special thing about me: I'm kind of a genius. When I was 16 I graduated and started my studies on Cambridge university. I study History, Physics and English Literature and will make my doctor soon. It happens on a cold November morning 2012.
It seemed to be an ordinary day. I woke up at 5 am like every day. As I combed my fiery red hair, my big blue eyes peered back at me. My freckles stood out of my pale face. They were mostly splashed on my high cheekbones and my snub nose. My skinny figure had only very few curves. I stood quiet tall with 5"9'. I wore a pair of jeans, a white pullover and I would wear a coat when I went outside. After I inspected myself I drank my cup of coffee for breakfast, chatted with my Mum and James, and went by car to the Cambridge University. There I met Richard, my ex-boyfriend, who studied Physics, Chemistry and Biology. He was ginger as well. His brown eyes looked at me pleadingly and his slim lips were in a frown. His low cheekbones weren't covered in freckles like mine. He had a tan and a quiet muscular build. He had pug nose, which looked really good in his handsome face.
"Emma… Emma wait a moment", he shouted when I walked past him.
"Richard I must go. I'm otherwise late on my lecture", I said.
I didn't want to talk with him. We were still friends but he had a new girlfriend and I was still single. And every time I talked to Richard, Elizabeth, his new girlfriend, was there. I was glad for him, but I didn't want to see his happiness every single day.
"OH but Emma… please wait", I heard Elizabeth.
Well if she wanted also to talk with me… "Okay, but just for a second. History already happened. What's the matter?"
"We wanted to invite you for a weekend trip. Just we three and my brother Jeffrey", Elizabeth said with a grin.
I looked at them sceptically.
"Don't worry. He is a really nice guy. He studies English Literature in Oxford", Richard explained.
"And he is a great rugby player. Maybe we could also go to a game of him one day. He is also very handsome… he is tall, has muscles, brown hair, eyes blue like the sea… and he is also very smart", Elizabeth swarmed.
"Are you trying to make Matchmaker?", I asked them.
"Well, you haven't dated since Richard…", Elizabeth trailed off.
"Well… I have a boyfriend.", I lied.
"Really?", they asked at the same time.
"Don't act so surprised! I feel offended!", I said.
"Well, what's his name?", Richard asked.
"It's… John", I lied, yet again.
"John Smith?", Elizabeth asked sceptically.
"Yeah… it's a bad coincident"
"What does he look like?", Richard asked.
"Um… tall… brown hair… brown eyes… glasses… he's very handsome… and smart. We're really happy"
"Well, I would love to meet him then.", Elizabeth said, after giving Richard a knowing look.
"He'll…pick me up…", I said, secretly cursing myself.
"Well, you'll have to introduce him to us then.", Richard agreed.
"Well.", I looked around, looking for an escape, "Oh! Look how time flies! I gotta go! Bye!", I said, running to the lecture. But when I arrived nobody was there. Carefully I went in and looked around.
"Hello, is anybody in there?" I shouted and opened the door.
Surprisingly, it was not my professor, but the Dean of the university who stood in the lecture hall. He was not very sympathic to me, but I can't say why. He was a bit smaller than me and was overweight. That should not mean that I don't like overweight people. That would be awkward, because I know how it is when people look at you kind of disgusted. Well I decided to talk to the Dean to find out what's going on here.
"Ah Dean Adams, you know where Professor Jones is?" I asked the head of university.
The dean seemed to be ill. He was sweating and had bloating. He turned in my direction in a very slow way. I had the strange feeling that something was wrong.
"What are you doing here?" the dean asked.
"Normally, now would be the history lecture by Professor Jones here ... since ... about 20 minutes. But as you can see, no one is here. Has the room changed?"
"Oh no my dear, Professor Jones did not feel able to hold today's lecture" he responded.
"And why no one told me? That's just typical. So I hurried here for nothing. By the way, what are you doing here?"
"You know, other students had just left. But you did not. I think I should take you to your fellow students" he said and opened a big cupboard.
In this cupboard I saw nothing but corpses. And the faces I knew all of the history lectures.
"Why did you do that? What kind of human are you?"
"I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not human. I belong to the noble family of Slitheen"
After he finished, he moved his hand to his forehead, where a kind of zipper showed up, which he slowly moved to the side.
Suddenly I felt someone grip my hand. I looked next to me and there stood a strange man. He was very tall, had brown hair, brown eyes and was very handsome. 'Maybe I can ask him, if he can play my boyfriend' I thought. Then he said "Run" and dragged me toward the exit. At first I stumbled behind him, but then I heard shouting. I looked behind me and where the dean just stood, stood a strange green thing. It started to run after us, which looked really funny. His hand was trustingly over his head. My eyes widened and I quickened my speed. The man dragged me out of the University and led me to a blue box. He stopped in front of it and let go of my hand, to rummage through his pocket.
I waited for him to speak, but when he didn't say anything I started asking questions "Who are you? What happened to Dean Adams? What is he? And what are you looking for? What are we stopping at a police box for? Wh-"
The man put a finger on my lips, to make me shut up, continued to rummage through his pockets and said "I'm the Doctor; this…Dean Adams is a Slitheen. I'm looking for my key. This police box is called TARDIS. It stands for Time Relative Dimension In Space. Ha!", then he pulled out a key, pulled his finger away and put the key in the lock of the TARDIS. He turned it and pushed it open.
That man is strange, rude and seems to not read instructions, because on the door stood "Pull to open".
After a while he seemed to notice, that I didn't follow him, because he popped his head out and asked "What are you waiting for?", and went back inside. After thinking of what could happen in the worst case I decided to follow him inside.
When I stepped inside I was in a short stage of shock. "There is another dimension in here.", I murmured.
The Doctor-man grinned at me and said "Right! How do you know that? Normally people say 'It's bigger on the inside' and are totally shocked. You don't seem too shocked though. You should be shocked though. The dean of your university just zipped up his head and turned into a Slitheen. I don't think it's shocking. Happens to me all the time. Well… not the dean of my university. And there are the corpse of your fellow students. Big shock, if you ask me. You seem quiet calm though… What did you say your name was?"
I looked at him like he grew a second head, before slowly saying "My name Emma… Emma Smith."
"Ah… Smith. I like that surname. I had some companions with that surname. Sarah Jane, Mickey… Mickey was with Rose…", the end he said a bit sadly.
"So, you're an alien. Because I wouldn't believe you if you tell me, that your human, with all the bigger on the inside spaceship and the Slitheen-thingy.", I said, trying to change the subject.
"Yes, I'm an alien."
"Well, that's a bit too Science-Fiction."
"But it's true… I can show you."
"Maybe after we solved the Slitheen problem."
"Yeah… well. Of course.", the Doctor.
The Doctor looked at me and I looked at him. After half a minute I said "And how, Alien-man?"
"Oh! Right! We need vinegar.", he grinned.
"Vinegar?", I asked doubtfully.
"Yes, where's the cafeteria?", he asked.
"Well, I could lead you there."
"Yeah, great idea. You've got salad today?"
"We have a salad buffet"
We stood there for another half minute and I broke the silence by saying "We should head out, before the Slitheen kills the whole university."
"Right! Allons-y!", said the Doctor, before running out of the TARDIS.
I shook my head and followed him. When I reached him he turned in the wrong direction I ran faster and as I reached him I took his hand. We went quickly in the right direction, when suddenly Richard and Elizabeth showed up. "Oh bloody hell", I whispered and looked at the strange man. "Please do me a favour. Just play along", I begged. A bit confused he nodded and before I could tell him the story, the pair stood before us.
"Emma, my dear. Nice to see you again", Elizabeth said and smiled.
"Yeah… of course", I said panicked.
"Hello, my name is Richard Fisher. What's your name?", Richard asked. Well I hated him in this moment. I wanted to kill him.
"Oh hello, I'm John… John Smith. Yeah I know, my parents seemed to be very creative. But my nephews love to ask me when I'll meet Pocahontas or a Jane who looks like Angelina Jolie. But I don't really look like Brad Pitt… I look better and of course my lovely Emma here next to me also looks better than Angelina Jolie, doesn't she", the stranger said very quickly. I just smiled and was very happy.
"Where and when did you two meet?"
"Well… it was here on the Campus… I helped her… in many different ways", the stranger said.
"And since when are you together?", Elizabeth asked.
"Well… the time flies if you are happy and have fun… I'm so sorry Darling, when is our anniversary? Please don't be angry with me… I can't handle it when you are angry with me… But of course you look so cute when you are angry"
"Don't worry honey. I'm not angry with you. It was the… 1st of September… Well two months already"
"Are you both really a couple? There is something strange", Richard said sceptically.
"Of course!", I said.
"What? I should prove you, that I have a boyf-", in this moment I was cut off by 'John'. He suddenly kissed me. In the first moment it was akward but as I relaxed it was… wow. It was fantastic. It was like a firework… indescribably. After the kiss I looked at him like a teenager when I realized that I cleared my throat. "Well… John and I have to go… we'll see us", I said and went with 'John' to the cafeteria. While we walked I whispered "thanks for playing along" to him.
As we reached the salad buffet he said, "Ok, so you fill a bowl with the dressing."
"I'll stand here."
"Not going to help me?"
"Nope, it's just one bowl; I thought you could handle that."
I shook my head, while I filled the bowl and turned around, "So, what are we doing now?"
"You wait here.", the Doctor said, before turning on his heel and running off.
'Great', I thought, 'That is probably some hidden camera gag, and people all over England are going to laugh at me. And I'm just standing here with a bowl full of vinegar. How much could have cost that, to make my fellow students out of plastic? They looked real. And the robot. That must have been expensive. I didn't know that robots are so far developed. Really impressive. This blue police box… that is a mystery… and why did this man play along and kissed me?' I turned around to the buffet and saw a carrot. 'Oh! A carrot!', I thought and took one.
Then the door opened. I turned around, expecting the strange guy, but there stood the Slitheen. I let a yelp escape my lips and accidentally poured the vinegar over the Slitheen.
"Oh, no! The vinegar!", then the Slitheen exploded. I looked down at me and saw that I was full with some strange glibber.
"Great! I couldn't have done it better… well… I could, but it seems nicer to say that, right?", said the Doctor, who came running in the room.
I glared u at him and said, "You let me kill the thing?"
"Of course. I lured it here, you kill it. It's quiet simple."
"You could have warned me, that when I pour the vinegar over it, that it explodes into green glibber. Does that even get down?"
"Yeah, I think.", he said, scratching the back of his head.
"You think? I just bought those clothes yesterday. Are there more of these things? If there are then I don't let it get cleaned."
"No, I think it was the only one… in this place."
"What do you mean 'in this place'?", I mimicked his voice in the last part.
"Well, I'm sure there are some in other places."
"The Slitheen", the Doctor cut me off.
The Slitheen, did it kill my professor?"
"Oh my god! That means I'm going to miss all my history lectures until they found a new dean and a new history lecturer."
"You study history?"
"And Physic and English Literature."
"That's impressive. But to your problem with the history lectures I have a solution.", he said grinning.
"Really? What?", I asked happily.
"You could travel with me in the TARDIS. It's also a time machine."
"You're kidding, right?"
"No, why should I?"
"I don't even know you. You could be a pervert."
He looked down at himself, before saying, "That's new. No one ever said that I look like a pervert."
"Well… Perverts never look like they're perverts."
"Yeah… you're probably right. But even if, what else are you supposed to do, after all you can't go to your history lectures. And with me, you can live history."
"Well… I could attend my other courses."
"When you come with me, you could learn physic from Einstein, or Sir Isaac Newton. And Dickens is a close friend of mine."
"Of course… So, will you come with me?", he asked confidently.
I thought for a moment, "I have to go home."
"What?", the Doctor asked shocked.
"Well, I think I can't come with you, wearing this.", I said pointing at my slimy clothes.
"Oh, right. Of course. So, you come with me, don't you?", he grinned.
"Yep.", I said, popping the p.
"Then I'll bring you home then.", he grinned wider.
First chapter's up.
