Chapter 7: Escape
Rift awoke inside a large warehouse that he assumed was in the middle of town. He tried to get up but then he heard the Dalek yell at him "HALT, DO NOT MOVE" it said as it moved towards him "where could I possibly go when I have no idea what planet I'm on in this new universe all I know is that you don't belong here" Rift said to the Dalek "YOUR PLANET IS GONE, THERE ARE NO TIME LORDS TO HELP YOU EXCEPT THE DOCTOR" the Dalek replied "neither do you have any other Dalek's to come and help you for Skaro surely doesn't exist in this universe" said Rift "YOU ARE LYING SKARO MUST EXIST THE DALEKS MUST SURVIVE" said the Dalek. Rift figured that there's was going to be no reasoning with this Dalek at all but he must find out what it wants to do to this new world "look I demand that you tell what it is you want from this world this instant" demanded Rift. The Dalek backed away a little and moved its eyestalk before it spoke again "THIS WORLD WILL BE PURGED, ALL NON-DALEKS WILL BE EXTERMINATED" said the Dalek "your have no right to do that to the inhabitants of this world and I demand that you leave it be at once" said Rift "SILENCE, OR YOU WILL BE EXTERMINATED, THE DALEKS WILL BE THE MASTERS OF THIS WORLD" replied the Dalek "there aren't any Daleks left you're the only one in existence in this universe and nothing will stop me from defeating you" said Rift. He then turned around and kicked the Dalek in the eyestalk with his back legs and darted off through the exit. He then hid behind a dumpster as the Dalek moved by. He looked past the dumpster and saw the Dalek turn to the right and leave.
Quietly he got up and moved away from the dumpster as he walked away from the warehouse and into another alleyway. Just when he thought he was safe a beam of energy shot out at him and hit a wall "HALT, OR YOU WILL BE EXTERMINATED" said the Dalek as it moved closer to him. Rift looked around to see if there was anything useful he could use to get away from the Dalek "YOU ARE NO LONGER USEFUL, YOU WILL BE EXTERMINATED" the Dalek said as it aimed its weapon at him, but before it could fire a brick was thrown at its domed head. It turned in the direction it came from only to be blinded by a large cloth "MY VISION IS IMPARIED, I CAN NOT SEE" it said as tried to shake off the cloth. Rift turned to see a tan earth pony at the end of the alleyway telling him to run that way. He took the chance and ran in that direction. The Dalek shock off the cloth and looked around for a bit before returning to the warehouse.
Rift looked back down the alley to make sure the Dalek was gone before turning to the tan earth pony "thank you my friend if it weren't for you I'd be dead right now" he said to him. The stranger also checked the alleyway before speaking "your welcome after all that thing already killed the other two prisoners, I was lucky enough to escape, name's Dust Storm by the way" he replied "nice to meet you Dust Storm I'm the Traveller but call me Rift now we must hurry and get out of here before the Dalek comes back" Rift said "follow me Rift" said Dust Storm. They both hurried away from the alley as Dust Storm lead them to an abandon building. Dust Storm quickly looked around to make sure the Dalek hadn't followed them before he opened the door at let Rift inside the building as he shut the door "alright we should be safe here that thing never ventures further then the alley it lives in" said Dust Storm as he locked the door. "Whew for a moment there I thought I was done for until your timely arrival Dust Storm" said Rift as he sat down "don't mention it Rift couldn't let somepony else get killed by that
what was it you called it
a Dalek?" asked Dust Storm "yes a Dalek it's a terrible mutant creature in a mechanical armoured transport that it basically lives in" replied Rift. Dust Storm walked over to him and sat down across from him "so how do you know what that thing is anyway" he asked "well
be honest it's my fault that its here" said Rift. Dust Storm looked confused at Rift "are you saying you
made that thing" he asked Rift's expression quickly turned to anger "MADE IT how dare you question me on having created that monstrosity and unleashing it upon this world the Dalek's are the eternal enemies of the Time Lords and I would never affiliate with those heartless creatures" he said angrily. Dust Storm was caught off guard by his outburst "calm down I wasn't saying that you did create that Dalek I just want to know where it came from" he said.
Rift quickly calmed himself down as he looked to Dust Storm "right sorry about that I guess I'm still just a bit off from my recent Regeneration anyway it from a planet called Skaro located in the same dimension that I came from, but I don't have time to explain the rest we have to find something to pierce through that armoured plating of it in order to destroy it" said Rift "but what could we use the other two prisoner already tried to kill it but nothing seemed to work on it" said Dust Storm. Rift pondered about how exactly he was going to defeat the Dalek and save the town from destruction. In the past the Dalek's had a weakness to bastic bullets during the Dalek civil war but that weakness was changed during the Time War. The eye stalk was susceptible to concentrated fire, only problem was that guns probably didn't exist in this world. Not to mention lack of energy weapons. The only other weakness he could think was their weakness to low and extremely high temperatures "that's it heat" said Rift "heat?" replied Dust Storm "yes heat their armour has a weakness to extremely high temperatures if we can some how generate enough heat on something like a spear we can stab right into its armour and destroy the Dalek" said Rift "and your sure that will work" asked Dust Storm "positive, but it will take more then the two of us to pull it off there's a friend of mine that should be able to help us" said Rift "but do you know where he is it's too dangerous to go out looking for him" replied Dust Storm "yes I know but I have another way of calling on him now go stand watch by the window I'll call the doctor" Rift said as he closed his eyes. Dust Storm was confused by what Rift was doing but nevertheless did what he was told and went over to the window to watch out for the Dalek. Little did he knew that Rift was actually sending a signal to the doctor telepathically, he knew they all had to act quickly.
For if they failed, all of Equestria would fall
