The Doctor was singing a lovely tune Lucie didn’t recognize. She leaned against the console, trying to make out the words.
“…and you will return to your homeland someday.”
An alert buzzed as a light began blinking. “What was that?”
“Distress call, I think.” The Doctor touched the sensor and instantly froze.
“Yeah, so who’s calling?” Lucie looked from the Doctor’s hand up to his face. His eyes looked vacant. “You alright?” She waved a hand in front of his face. “Hello? Earth to the Doctor?”
Without blinking, the Doctor programed in a flight path and the ship began moving.
