“How could this have happened?” The Doctor said as he looked over at Rose as she looked back at him with a worried look in her eye. “Everything was going so well this morning...”
12 hours earlier
“Good morning Doctor.” Rose said as she happily skipped towards him.
“Hey how’d you sleep?” replied The Doctor.
“I slept like a baby, so where are we going today?” she sat her hands on the console and waited for his reply. As he was speaking, his voice was music to her ears.
“Well,” he said, “You know I have always had a great love for the early colonization of America, so…” he pulled the lever and the TARDIS, which is the spaceship he travels in,, and the engine roared. He opened the doors and said, “Here we are.” She could see a sparkle in his eyes, after he opened the doors. They both looked at the little house they saw, which was surrounded by cannons. A small group of patriot soldiers were sneaking to the front door.
“Ooo, this is Fort Ticonderoga, one of the early American victories.” The Doctor explained briefly to Rose, as she watched them stand next to the door.
“It doesn't look like a victory to me…” she said as she was interrupted by the excited voice of The Doctor.
“Well, it wasn’t a huge victory, they just walked up to the front door and took the Fort.”
“No,” she replied “Those soldiers who snuck up to the door just got captured by British men hiding in the bushes.”
“That's not right…” The Doctor said as his voice trailed off when a creature made of metal approached from behind the house. Both of the travelers looked at the creature as if they had seen a ghost.
“Dalek.” The Doctor said while he was searching in his pockets for something. The dalek, which was genetically modified to feel one emotion: hate, scanned his surroundings as he spoke, “Fort Ticonderoga Secure!”
“No, no, no, no!” The Doctor sprinted back to the TARDIS dragging Rose behind him. They bursted through the doors.
“What are they doing here?” she asked frantically as she watched him looking around the console room. He tried to reply to her while running around the room.
“Maybe they want world domination, maybe they want to kill the human race, maybe they want to ruin history, I really don’t know...”he shot up so quickly he was a little dizzy. “Found it!” he said. The flash drive was held in his hand. He plugged it into the monitor and the screen read the history of the American Revolution. He scrolled through until he arrived at the slide that read Fort Ticonderoga: a great British victory. His head sunk into his shoulders. He was completely clueless as to what to what they were doing and why they were here. He began to run back out of the TARDIS followed by Rose. When he stopped, she looked in front of her and her mouth gaped open. A small group of four daleks were waiting outside the TARDIS.
“Oh… Hello.” The Doctor said as he slowly exited the doors. He pushed Rose back into the doors.
“EXTERMINATE!” one of the daleks yelled when The Doctor stepped out.
“Whoa wait wait wait, before you shoot me I want to know what you're doing here.”
“We plan for America to lose the war.”
“Technology will be set back and the Daleks will win every battle in the 21st century.”
“So you plan to make technology in the 21st century set back, but the problem with that is your technology is already superior to theirs and I will show up every time and beat you with my amazing technology. So, regardless of the outcome of this, you lose either way to ME! HA!”
“EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!” the daleks gun fired towards The Doctor as Rose jumped out of the TARDIS pushing The Doctor out of the way not knowing if the ray hit him or not. The Doctor opened his eyes to find himself tied up in a cell in a dalek ship. Why haven’t they killed me he wondered to himself as he looked over at Rose who looked back at him. He slowly turned his head and saw Dalek Supreme looking at him.
“Doctor… why have you come here today?” Dalek Supreme stated with a cold tone.
“Why haven’t you killed me?” The Doctor replied.
“Answer the question, Doctor.”
“I was traveling. Traveling is what I do. I travel and maybe save a few civilizations along the way.”
“Well, Doctor, where you travel I exterminate. Exterminating is what I do. I have dreamed I would be the one to exterminate you. Every single one of us wants to exterminate you. Now, I will be the one to exterminate you.” The Doctor began to squirm like a helpless dog as the daleks voice got louder and louder.
