The Madman with a Box

Milly Hansles is mostly normal, mostly normal life, mostly normal boyfriend, mostly normal friends. But she will never be completely normal. As a child, she was saved by a magical man who called himself “The Doctor.” Milly was intrigued by this strange man-well, he was an alien actually, but he looks like a man-especially by his blue box. She was in it for a few minutes, although she barely realised. Now she’s “grown up”, apparently, she wants to find him. But how can you find a time-tavelling madman with a box?


8. "I failed my TARDIS driving test."

Author's note-The Doctor changed his TARDIS again while I was writing this. (Whyyyyyy?) Uhh... you know the Eleventh Doctor's first new TARDIS? That's the one Milly is pressing buttons on.

After a while of running around the TARDIS madly and asking "What does this do?" "Ooh! Where'd you get that?" "Is that a hat stand?" "Why've you got a hat stand?" the Doctor must have had enough and said, "The TARDIS changes sometimes, which is kind of cool. But annoying. Just when you've got used to it, bam!, it all changes around and you have no idea where the library is any more."

"You have a library?" I asked.

"Yep," he answered. "And a swimming pool and a art gallery and a corner shop thing and a music room and a-"

I interrupted him. "That's terrible grammar," I said. "You shouldn't say 'and' all the time. It defies the rules of grammar."

"Eh, I never play by the rules," the Doctor answered, with a grin. "Which is why..." He pulled a lever and the TARDIS lurched, knocking me backwards. "...I'm going to take you back in time."

"Wh-whereeeee!?" I slipped, falling flat on my face. "Ooh that hurt," I said, my voice sounding muffled. I put a hand to my nose and took it away. Fortunately, there was no blood so it wasn't broken or anything. I think.

"You're an artist, right?" the Doctor asked, pulling levers and spinning dials while I tried extremely hard to stay on my feet, but failed miserably.

"Yeeeeeeeeeeessssss!" I said, while being thrown around. "How do yoooooooou stay on your feeeeeeeet!?"

"I've had years of practice," he said. He turned, only just noticing that I was falling over every five seconds, and the pushed a green button. The rocking stopped. "Is it a good time to mention that I failed my TARDIS driving test?"

"You...really...should have...mentioned that...before," I said, trying to catch my breath. "My broken."

"No it isn't." The Doctor sat me down on a chair and said, "It's not. Trust me, I'm a doctor. And come on Milly, who's the most famous painter of all time?"

It didn't take long for me to figure that out. "Leonardo...Da Vinci," I answered. "Okay, I think I've got my breath back. Press that green button every time we travel. Is that the right word?"

"I think so," the Doctor answered slowly. "TARDIS means Time And Relative Dimensions In Space." He paused. "Doesn't say anything about travely stuff."

"That's not a word."

"Who cares!?" The TARDIS made a loud thump noise and the Doctor continued speaking, "Now Milly. Leonardo Da Vinci. Born in 1452, died in 1519. What a sad day. Anyway, he was apprenticed to a painter called Verocchio when he was thirteen and stayed there until he was seventeen. Now answer this, where was Verocchio's workshop?"

"Florence," I replied. "Wait...have you taken me to see Leonardo Da Vinci?"

"Maybeee!" he said. "Okay yes. Now come on, lets explore!"
