An Intergalactic Adventure Through Time And Space

Part 3 of The Tomb Of The Cybermen

Baekhyun fled inside the room where he saw the Time Lady and Kyungsoo, followed by Yixing and Minseok. Chanyeol was staring at Luhan, who was lying on the floor, unconscious and with what seemed to be a burn on the shoulder, in front of what looked like a Cyberman with a gun pointed outwards. "What happened?!" he walked up to Luhan and bent down.

"I don't know. One minute the room was dark, and the next minute, there were beeping lights and then that Cyberman just came out of nowhere and shot Luhan" the Time Lady panicked.

Baekhyun glanced at the Time Lady, and then at Luhan, who slowly opened his eyes. He stood up and glanced at all of them. "So, he was in front of that Cyberman, am I right?" he asked.

"Yes, Doctor" Chanyeol nodded.

"The question is, who shot him?" Baekhyun took his sonic pen out and pointed it at Luhan.

"What else? But that Cyberman on the screen!" Chanyeol said.

Baekhyun shook his head. "It's not the Cyberman when Luhan was shot from behind"

The rest of them turned Luhan over. He had a scorched patch behind his left shoulder. "How did it get there?" Kyungsoo asked with wide eyes.

"Exactly what I was wondering. If it wasn't the cyberman in that screen, who was it?" Baekhyun gestured for the Time Lady and Kyungsoo to come over.

Yixing looked around nervously. "I think we'd all better get back to the main control room. We still have to figure out how to open that hatch" he said.

"That would be a good idea, yes" Minseok nodded, as he helped Chanyeol get Luhan off the floor.

~~

"The ship has been damaged somehow, for some reason the engine doesn't want to run. It's shut down" Minseok came back inside, out of breath.

"How long until it's fixed?" Yixing asked.

"Without interruption? 72 hours" Minseok answered.

"We can't stay here for 72 hours" Luhan groaned, as Chanyeol was treating his burn. "What are we going to do here? We haven't found the remains of the Cybermen, we're going to die!"

"Get a hold of yourself, Luhan. We aren't going to die. We just need to figure out how to open that hatch" Yixing pointed to it.

Baekhyun's brows furrowed. "Don't you think that Luhan getting burned is not enough to warn you? again?" he said.

Yixing took a deep breath. "May I remind you Doctor, that I am in charge of this expedition and I say if we stop or continue on," he glanced at Luhan. "Luhan's burn was merely a casualty"

"If Luhan stood any closer, he could have been killed" Baekhyun answered. "I believe it is impossible to establish any kind of agreement with you, from the moment you told us your reason for being in this planet" he looked at him sternly.

Yixing looked him in the eye, then turned to Minseok. "Go and fix the engine, Minseok, Chanyeol, help Minseok" he turned around to look at his notes and then at the control panel in front of him. Minseok nodded and left the chamber, Chanyeol following behind.

The Time Lady and Kyungsoo stood next to Baekhyun. "I really have been here before. The people I met back then were doing the same thing they're doing right now" he said.

"What are they doing?" Kyungsoo asked.

"Hopefully, not trying to bring the Cybermen back to life" Baekhyun watched Yixing press a few buttons and pull down a few levers.

All of a sudden, the hatch had opened up. "Well, hopefully, sweetie. I have a feeling they wouldn't, but you never really know" the Time Lady gulped.

"The Cybermen must be down there" Yixing looked at the open hatch in amazement. Baekhyun immediately went up the steps and pointed his sonic pen inside.

"Oh, it's cold down there, it's best if we dress warmly" Baekhyun eyed Yixing and Luhan.

------

"I will go down there, with the Doctor and Kyungsoo," Yixing said, while zipping up his thick coat. "Luhan, since you're injured, you stay with the Time Lady" he gestured to her. Luhan only nodded and the Time Lady smiled at him.

"You will be okay up here, right?" Baekhyun asked her.

The Time Lady nodded. "I should ask you the same thing. Keep an eye on Yixing, alright?" she planted a kiss on his cheek. She glanced at Kyungsoo, who was checking the holsters underneath his coat for extra ammunition. "Captain Kyungsoo, keep an eye on this puppy" she patted Baekhyun on the shoulder.

"Don't I always have to?" Kyungsoo teased, before following Yixing down the hatch.

Baekhyun followed. "Don't close this hatch" he reminded her before going down completely.

-------

The temperature change was overwhelming, as the three of them were shuddering the moment they stepped down on the landing. They found another control panel in front of a wall that was covered in ice. "It's like a big freezer in here" Kyungsoo kept his coat closed as they walked towards the panel.

Yixing looked at the ice wall before them. "Now we're getting somewhere" he said, looking at his notes before furiously scribbling on another page.

"Where exactly are the Cybermen?" Kyungsoo asked, looking at the controls.

"Right in front of us, Captain" Yixing replied. "They are frozen"
