Chapter 1

Morning Air

The crisp morning air slapped my face as I ran, the wind tangling my hair. Usually I liked it tied back, but it had come undone sometime during my run. I turned around to look back, and only saw a large ugly crater where my school had been, maybe fifteen minutes ago. It was a pile of rubbish now, the ground smoking almost as much as my father. My name is Elizabeth Greene, and although I did not know it, my life was about to be changed forever.

This morning had started off normal enough. My mom drove my friend Beth and I to our school and dropped us off, bright and early around 7:20, me still blinking sleep out of my eyes as she drove away, as usual. Beth and I walked together to the third floor to our lockers. It took me a few moments to realize something was wrong. There were a lot more students roaming the halls this morning than usual. Usuallypeople start arriving around 7:40, but this morning, lots of people were crowding the halls. Beth will tell you I'm a drama queen and a liar, but I know what I saw. Some of them didn't look like students at all. Some of them didn't even look human. I shook it off then, and tried to convince myself I was just being silly, but it was kind of hard. It was a while before I noticed Beth had been trying to get my attention. She was pulling my sleeve and saying my name repeatedly.

"Liz... Liz... HEY LIZ!"

I jumped when she yelled in my ear. "What?"

"I've been trying to get your attention for the last five minutes. What's up with your brain this morning?"

"Dunno." I shrugged. "Feeling a bit sick, I guess. I stayed up late studying for math last night. I swear, grade twelve math will be the death of me!"

"Insanity." Beth agreed. "But right now, I need to use the bathroom." She did this little dance, trying to emphasize, but all it did was make her look like an idiot.

"Ok." I laughed. "Want me to wait?"

"Nah. I'll meet you at the lockers. See ya!"

"See ya." I grinned, before starting walking down the hall. I was almost to the stairs, when a man ran around the corner, straight into me, knocking me to the floor.

"Oh thanks for that!" I grumbled.

"Oh, sorry. In a bit of a hurry. Canadian, right?" He pointed at me. His accent sounded Scottish.

"Your in Canada. What did you expect me to be?"

"So THATS where I am!" The man grinned. "Got a distress signal, and I'm not even sure where I landed! Canada! The great north! Home of the beavers and silver birch, and-"

"Yeah sure Mr. Sunshine. I have a pet beaver at home."


"No." He offered me his hand but I ignored it and got up myself.

"I'm The Doctor."

"Doctor what?"

"Just The Doctor."

"I'm Liz." I answered, I bit more curious rather than annoyed now. "Any why the heck don't you know where you are?"

"Oh um I'm a responsible government official, you see. In, um England! And they kind of just told me I was going somewhere and-"

"That's a stupid story for cover up." I interrupted.

"No wait! I have proof!" He said with haste, fumbling around his coat pockets. "Ah yes." He said once he'd found what he'd been looking for. He pulled out a small black note pad and opened it to a page before shoving it in my face. "See? It's my card-thing! It says right there I work for the-"

"The things blank. Are you drunk or something?" I asked, cutting across him again. He looked at me in surprise. He squinted at me and looked back at the paper.

"Amazing... it's never done that before." He shook his head at the small notepad before snapping it shut and shoving it back in his pocket. He took out a thing that looked like small, thin, child's flashlight and pressed a button, throwing the blue beam on me as if scanning me. The flashlight thing made a peculiar sound and in a few seconds the doctor had stopped.

"What was that for?"

"Amazing... your human, and yet..." Suddenly there was a crash somewhere across the building. The Doctor shoved the flashlight in his pocked and ran.

"Hey!" I shouted after him. "You never explained to me!"

He skidded to a stop. "Explained what?"

"Who you are."

"I'm nobody. Now, take my advice and run as fast as you can away from the school or... well I don't really know the alternative yet. Just get as far away from here as you can." The Doctor turned and dashed down the hall. He turned a corner, and was gone. I stared after him for a second, debating my next moves. I could take the Doctor's advice and run as fast as I could away, or I could go about my normal business. The Doctor had seemed a bit our of his mind, but he also seemed to be genuine about the need to run. I made my decision, and dashed down the stairs, taking them two at a time. Before I knew it, I was at the bottom and bursting our the door into the windy yet sunny day. I ran across the field, and only stopped once I was a kilometre away. All was calm for a few seconds before-BOOM! The ground shook beneath my feet, and I fell over. Where my school had been, there was a crater. A crater.
