“Instability! Go to House,” the robot repeated. “Follow!”
“That sound, it’s like…static,” Lucie muttered. She tried to take a step forward but stumbled. “It’s all in my eyes now. I can’t see.”
The Doctor backed away from the unfinished construction as it began crumbling. “Lucie, what’s wrong?”
“Doctor?” Lucie swayed on her feet. “Where are you?”
He leapt over a section of flooring that had collapsed into a sinkhole below them. “I’m right here. Take my hand.”
“Doctor! Help me!”
He reached her just before she fell unconscious. Sweeping her into his arms, the Doctor staggered after the robot.
