Chapter 8: reunion
Cherry Jubilee had fallen asleep on the Sofa in the Doctor's control room after her conversion with Ditzy Doo while the Doctor worked at the console with his family trying to locate Rift and the Dalek but were having no luck "surly the Dalek would be giving off an energy signal but for some reason we just can't find it" said the Doctor "could the Dalek some how be masking it's energy signal father" asked Sparkler "possibly Sparkler, but surly it wants to pull us into a trap to have me destroyed" replied the Doctor as he continued to work the control console. Meanwhile Red Gale and Bell Perin were on the other side of the room talking to each other about how they hoped Rift was okay. Cherry Jubilee awoke from her slumber and yawn as she walked back over to the console "anything yet Doctor" she asked "I'm afraid not the only signal we're getting is from his TARDIS and the time-space rift he came through other then that we got nothing" said the Doctor. Just as he finished his sentence the Doctor suddenly received a telepathic message in his head telling him where Rift was. "scratch that I just found him" said the Doctor as he started pressing buttons on the control console "really
where is he" asked Cherry Jubilee "in an abandon building in dodge junction right now he is sending a telepathic signal to my mind, Time Lord stuff very difficult to understand, now then lets go get him" said the Doctor as he reached over and pulled a lever that began the landing sequence of the TARDIS.
Meanwhile back at the abandon building Rift was still sitting with his eyes closed while Dust Storm kept he look out for the Dalek. After a few more moments Rift opened his eyes as he stood up "ahh perfect timing as always" he said. Dust Storm took his eyes off the window as he looked to Rift who was looking towards the middle of the room. The next thing he saw was a blue box materializing "what in the world" he said as he walked over to Rift "don't worry its quite normal for this police box" he assured Dust Storm as the door to the box opened as the Doctor and his family walked out along with cherry Jubilee who ran up to him "thank goodness your okay Rift" she said to him "thank you miss Jubilee its good to see you again as well" Rift replied. A moment Later Red Gale and Bell Perin stepped out and Red Gale immediately ran over to Dust Storm "brother I thought for sure I had lost you" said Red Gale "I'm glad to see you as well brother unfortunately I'm the only prisoner besides Rift here to escape from that Dalek" Dust Storm said. Cherry Jubilee's expressed changed to sadness "does that mean that the others didn't make it out alive" she asked "I'm afraid so boss" he said. Cherry Jubilee turned her head as a tear ran down her face "don't worry miss Jubilee if what I have planned works out their deaths will be avenged" said Rift assuring as he looked to the Doctor "now then Doctor we're going to need wielding material and several metal rods" said Rift "but what good will that do" asked Ditzy Doo "ahh of course your going to exploit the Dalek's weakness to heat" said the Doctor cheerfully "exactly doctor if we can get enough heated rods into the armour of that Dalek it will cause it to overheat and destroy itself" said Rift "quick Sparkler go fetch the welding tools from the storeroom next to the library in the TARDIS Dinky stand by the window and warn us when you see the Dalek" said the Doctor. Sparkler and Dinky nodded as they took off to begin their task "alright now the rest of you find some metals rods that we can heat up" said Rift.
They quickly spread out to find rods to use. After a few minutes of searching they quickly returned with fives metal rods as Sparkler came out with the welding tools. "alright then Doctor I need these rods heated enough to pierce through the Daleks armour now the rods alone won't stop it but if we can blind the Dalek you can use your sonic screwdriver to make it have a malfunction leaving it vulnerable to attack" said Rift "but how are we going to get it over here" asked the Doctor "simple I'll go out and lure it out into the open" said Rift. "What but Rift you'll be killed by that thing" said Cherry Jubilee "now look here we have no time for this nonsense I'm the only one you can lure the Dalek out here" said Rift. Cherry Jubilee stared at him for a few seconds before she sighed "alright but just be careful out there" she said "I'll be fine trust me I'm The Traveller" he said as he gave her a quick hug before he ran out of the building to find he Dalek as the Doctor walked up to here "don't worry miss Jubilee he'll be fine" he said "I hope your right Doctor" she replied.
