'Telepathic Communication'

Now sat beside Theta on the sofa I couldn't help but frown at the pictures before me and no matter how hard I tried flicking through the pages I kept coming back to the same ones, the ones of Claire at Christmas and her holding baby George. Honestly it was very puzzling.

"It's staring me right in the face and for the life of me I can't figure out these photos," I uttered to myself.

My Bonded reached out closing the album sensing I was getting a little frustrated with myself over it the longer I gazed at the pictures, giving me a much deserved break to figure it out, "Anyway. Good. Nice tea. Nothing like a cuppa, but decision," he gently laid the album upon the table, "Should we open the cupboard?"

"What?!" in that moment Alex spat out his tea.

"Should we?"


He looked to me, then between myself and Alex, "Got to open the cupboard, haven't we?" Alex responded with a nod, "Course we have!" Theta now turned to him, "Come on, Alex! Alex! Come on! How else will we ever find out what's going on here?"

"All right," Alex slowly got to his feet, "But you said..."

"Monsters. Yeah, well, that's what we do! Breakfast, dinner and tea. Fight the monsters. So this, this is just an average day at the office for us."

We all have monsters or so called metaphorical skeletons in our closets, the few of us have actual demons chasing and haunting our dreams. Theta was one of those, the many horrible things he has done...has left many demons and skeletons in his closet. Not leaving his soul pure and clean as it used to be in his younger years when I knew of him, but since then it has become a little darker.

"We don't?" Alex shook his head.

"Come on, Alex," Theta turned back to him, "Alex! Come on! Are you crazy? We can't open the cupboard!"

"God, no, no, we mustn't."

I shook my head and gave my forehead a little rub from Thetas shenanigans as he got up strode over to Alex putting his hands either side of the mans head, "Right. That settles it."

"Yes. Settles what?"

"He wants to go and open the cupboard," I let out with a knowing sigh, just as my Doctor took his hands away and drained his tea.

"Yes what Rena just said I'm going to open the cupboard," just as he was about leave I grabbed him by the edge of his coat and pulled him back.

-Doctor Who-

My eyes briefly glanced at the floor as I'm currently now sat with George on the bed, trying my best to keep the boy calm. Theta stretched out his arms and cracked neck, preparing himself slowly moving towards the cupboard as I rolled my eyes, sending George a smile who was now squeezing my hand tightly as Alex stood before us.
