Spin Off of "Silence in the Library"
(Season 4, episode 8 of Modern Day Doctor Who)
by: Reyanne Cadima, Age 12


*The Doctor sent Donna Noble back to the T.A.R.D.I.S to be safe from the Vashta Narada.*

"Oi! Doctor? Doctor?!....... Why doesn't he tell me before he does these things?!" Donna exclaimed. "I've got to get out of here." Donna walks up to the T.A.R.D.I.S door and opens it; "Aaaaaahhhhhh!" Donna screamed and than slammed the door shut! The T.A.R.D.I.S was not in The Library anymore, it was now in a graveyard. What am I going to do now? The Doctor hasn't shown me around or anything. How am I supposed to get out of he-" Donna was cut off, she started screaming....But why?

45 minutes later.......

"Whe-Where am I?" Donna said in a weak voice waking from unconsciousness. She had fallen down into the Console room beneath the control panel. She stood up, "Ouch!" only to realize her ankle was tangled up in a wire. "Oh gosh! You know, why can't anything go right around here today?" She said in a very annoying tone as she went back up to room with the control panel.*Beep.....Beep.....Beep..*
"Oi what is that annoying sound?!" (beeping continues) Donna starts looking all around the T.A.R.D.I.S. (beeping continues) She starts messing around with all the switches and buttons and levers. (beeping stops)

"Do you think that's a good idea?" asked an anonymous person.

"So it was you making that awful beeping noise! Excuse me! But I happen to know EXACTLY what I am doing!" Donna screamed back to the anonymous person on the small T.A.R.D.I.S screen.

"Do you Donna? It sure doesn't look like it." asked the anonymous person.

"Oi! Don't you sass me! Yes, I know exactly what-No, you're right. I don't know what I'm doing. But who are you to question my actions?" Donna replied.

"Donna, you don't know who I am? You haven't heard of me before? " asked the anonymous person.

"No. Why should I? Don't tell me, you used to work at HC Clements? Gosh I thought I finally ran away from-" Donna said.

"No. Donna, you really don't know who I am?" Asked the anonymous person in a confused voice.

"No. Didn't I just say that? Do you have short term memory loss? Do you need a Doctor?" Donna asked.

"(chuckles) Oh how I miss hearing that. But no, Donna, I'm perfectly heal-"

"What do you mean you miss that? Did you use to be a Nurse?" Donna asked. *Knock on the T.A.R.D.I.S door* "What was that?" Donna says.

"No, no it can't be (breathes heavily)."Anonymous person says in a worried tone.

"What? WHAT?! What is it?! (hyperventilates)" Donna says breathing heavily.

"It's not a what.........It's a who," Anonymous person says softly.

*Knocks on T.A.R.D.I.S door again*................."Are you my mummy?"

Neither of them respond to the knock or question at the door. (both breathe heavily). "Donna, listen to me very closely. I know how to keep you safe from this. Okay?" Anonymous person replied, making sure that Donna understood.

"How? How? How do you know about these...these...these creatures?! How do you know about the T.A.R.D.I.S?! How did you get on this screen?! WHO ARE YOU?!" Donna asked furiously.

"This is not a great time Donna!" Anonymous person tried to make Donna understand that we must get rid of the Empty Child before she needs to know who the person is.

"Tell me now! It's not getting in, just tell me!" Donna screamed.

"Fine! I know because I traveled with The Doctor. I hacked into this screen with my laptop. I made a mistake in The Doctor's eyes when we fought the Daleks, but it wasn't a mistake in my mind. I.......am Rose Tyler."

(Donna gasps) "The Doctor tries not to bring you up, he fails horribly. He talks about you CONSTANTLY." Donna replied surprised.

"He does? Wow, I didn't think he wou--"

Donna cut off Rose, "Yeah, yeah blondie whatever. What do we do?!" Donna said in a rude tone.

"Okay, listen. It's called "the Empty Child". It has a gas mask, for some reason we never really found out. Wow. Moving on! It started with one child who didn't know who his mother was so that's why they say Are you you my mummy," Rose replied.

"Okay, I didn't ask for the history of the creature I asked what we do to stop it!" Donna exclaimed.

"Okay, okay! Sheesh! Whatever you do DO NOT touch it! All we have to do is find it's mother." Rose said.

"Oh yeah, because that will be TERRIBLY easy. Can't we just kill it or something?" Donna screamed annoyed.

"Donna, do you not like children? This is a CHILD we're talking about here!" Rose said trying to get Donna's attention.

"I suppose you're right." Donna replied.

*knock on the door* "Hello? Are you my mummy?.........Mummy are you in there?" !

Rose realized that they had already solved the Empty Child problem in the past, how did this child become like this? Is it only this child, or are there a whole army? Donna looked out the window, she only saw one Gas Mask Zombie. "There's only one child out there, Rose."

"Okay, Donna." Rose replied saying that it was okay but she knew there could still be more out there.
(Gasps) Rose remembered something! She ran over to her desk. Donna kept asking her, "What's wrong?!" but she just kept rummaging through her desk.

"Yes, I found it! (giggles)" Rose exclaimed with joy. Rose starts rummaging through her notebook.

"Are you going to write this down?!" Donna said shockingly.

"No. I'm looking for something. The Doctor gave me this notebook. I wrote about all the foes we faced in here. Now let's see, Daleks, Lady Cassandra, Slitheen, The Gelth, Reapers, ah ha! The Empty Child &/or Gas Mask Zombies." Rose said.

"Well, what does it say?" Donna asked.

"Okay, it says, The children living in the bombed-out London of the blitz were haunted by a small child - a boy wearing a gas mask, searching constantly for his mum. He seemed to infect others, turning them into gas mask wearing zombies. With the help of myself and Captain Jack Harkness, The Doctor was able to unravel the mystery and save everyone, including the Empty Child." Rose read the description of the Empty Child &/or Gas Mask Zombies from her notebook to Donna.

"Felix! Felix?" a women shouted. (gasps), Donna and Rose look at each other with shocked looks on their faces. "I'm going to see if that is his mother oka-" Donna was saying until Rose cut her off.

"Do NOT go out there! He might get you!" Rose shouted.

"I don't care I'm not staying trapped in here! I have to go find the Doctor!" Donna shouted back angrily.
"You have to let me see him again." Rose said desperately.

"No! I don't have time for this! I don't have time to find you, I don't have time to find him, and then defeat the Empty Child as well!" Donna exclaimed extremely loud.

"Fine Donna, but atleast take the antidote with you. It's down in the Console room in a built in safe. The code is 92005." Rose didn't feel like arguing with Donna, so she just gave in and told her where the antidote was.

(Creak) Donna slowly opens the T.A.R.D.I.S door. "Hello. My name is Donna, is your name Felix?" Donna asked the little boy.

"Yes, yes, I am Felix. Donna, are you my mummy?" asked the gas mask zombie.

"No, no sweetie I'm not your mummy. But, that nice women over there is calling you. Maybe....Maybe, that's your mummy." Donna says sweetly while choking up. She walks up to the lady who was calling the little boys' name. "Hello? Hello. I'm Donna, I heard you were looking for a little boy named Felix. Are you his mum?" Donna asked the lady.

"Nice to meet you Donna. I'm Alice, and yes that is my son. Have you seen him? Please tell me you've seen him. I've been working on a farm so my sister had to raise him, he doesn't know his mum." Alice said to Donna anxiously.

"Yes, he's right over there. Go to him, run to him!" Donna yelled happily.

Rose popped up on Donna's cell phone. "Pst, Donna. Give her the antidote." Rose whispered.

"How did you----I don't care. Rose, thank you." Donna said sweetly. Rose winked and left Donna's screen. Donna pulled the antidote out of her pocket and gave it to the women, the women told Felix to drink it and than told him he was her mum. Everything was working out sweetly! Except for one thing, where's the Doctor? Alice thanked Donna, and she walked back into the T.A.R.D.I.S.

Donna slowly closed the door and sat down on one of the benches. (sighs) A sigh of relief came out of Donna as she thought, Now I just have to find the Doctor. Her eyelids started drooping, she let out a loud yawn, and while waiting, while forgetting about finding the Doctor, Donna drifted off to sleep.
*Snap! Snap! Snap!* "Donna. Donna. Donna!!"

"Wha-What?! Do-Doctor! You're alive!" Donna screamed with excitement. "So Donna, are you up to see another universe?" asked the Doctor.

"Yes, yes of course!" Donna exclaimed.

"Alright than, Allons-y!"
