We all turned to see only one Mickey and Katherine running towards us.
"Here they are!" Jake said. "Which ones are you."
"I'm sorry, The Cybermen he couldn't...They couldn't..."
"Katherine?" I asked. She had tears in her eyes.
"She sacrificed herself to save me. Rickey tried to help her..." Rose rushed forward and hugged Mickey, crying. But that's when we heard footsteps running. That's when I saw her, running towards us. The first thing she did was hug Kathy and Jake and apologize for their loss.
"We can mourn their losses when London is Safe. For now, we move on." I said.
"Speaking of loss, how did you survive? I saw the Cyberman shock you." Kathy said.
"I'll explain later. For now, we go."
We walked up to the large factory across the water.
"All of London's sealed off. The Entire population has been taken inside." I said.
"We've got to get in there and shut it down."
"How do we do that?" Mickey asked.
"Oh, we'll think of something." We said in unison.
"You two are just making this up as you go along."
"Yup." I replied.
"But we do it brilliantly." he added. I walked over and stood with Jake while the others figured out a route on Mrs. M's computer. She took out a pair of fake ear pods.
"So that's how two of us are getting in."
"It's my Job." Pete said.
"Doctor, I'm going with him and that's that." Rose told him.
"There's no stopping you is there?"
"Doctor, you should figure out by now, when women are with you, there's never any stopping us." Rose smiled at me. The Doctor went through and gave everyone their jobs.
"What about me?" I asked. He sighed.
"In other words, sit in the van and hide?"
"You got it." I said. He sighed again.
"Tell you what. Why don't Katherine and I communicate to you from over here. We can navigate Mrs. M and the Doctor from the computer." Kathy said. I nodded. I hugged the Doctor, knowing there was a good chance we wouldn't make it out of this.
Kathy and I now waited for what to do.
"How can there be two of us?" She asked.
"It's the whole, parallel thing. Hard to explain-"
"Not that. I mean, we're time lords. How?"
"How did you know that?" I asked.
"I figured it out. But...the thing is...I don't think we're parallel. I think your my past. I think I'm your future, in a sense. By the time your me this will all be over."
"That's not possible. There would be a hole ripped through Time and Space."
"So? You know it's impossible like they knew the Titanic was unsinkable, or, they knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Everything ever thought up is impossible until someone proves it to be possible." She said.
"Yes, but...I can't be here. I would never leave the doctor."
"Everything is impossible until someone proves it to be possible."
"Shouldn't they have called by now?" I asked, changing the subject.
"I don't know. Maybe something happened."
"Doctor? Mrs. Moore? Come in." The Walkie Talkie crackled.
"Well, what do you say we go and get caught then?"
"Because we both have two hearts and they would take us for analysis?" I asked.
The Cybermen now led us through a hallway. We had gotten caught alright, and they had taken us in for analysis. I walked in to see Pete, Rose, and the Doctor.
"My gosh, don't answer your radio why don't you." I said, exasperatedly.
"I'm sorry, they took it." He told me. That's when we heard screaming. Human screaming. "That's my friends at work. Good Boys! Mr. Lumic I think that's a vote for free will." He winked and clicked his tongue.
"I have factories waiting on seven continents. If the ear pods have failed, Then the cybermen will take humanity by force." The cyber controller told us. "London has fallen. So will the world. I will be bring peace to the world. And unity and uniformity."
"But what about imagination?" I asked.
"Yeah, your killing the one thing that brought you here." Kathy agreed.
"What are your names?"
"The Doctor, Katherine, and Kathy."
"A redundant title. Doctors need not exist. Cybermen never sicken."
"See but that's it! That's exactly the point! Oh, Lumic, your a clever man. I'd call you a genius if Katherine and I weren't in the room. But everything you've invented you did to fight your sickness. And that's brilliant. That is so human. But once you get rid of sickness and mortality, then what's there to strive for, eh? The Cybermen won't advance. You'll just stop. You'll stay like this forever. A Metal Earth, with metal men and metal thoughts. The one thing that makes this planet so alive. People! Ordinary, stupid, brilliant people."
"You are proud of your emotions?"
"Then tell me Doctor, have you known grief and rage and pain?" Lumic asked.
"Yes, yes I have."
"And they hurt?"
"I can set you free. Would you not want that? A life without pain?"
"You might as well kill me."
"Then I take that option."
"It's not yours to take! Your a cyber controller. You don't control me, or anything with blood in it's heart."
"You have no means of stopping me. I have an army, a species of my own."
"You just don't get it, do you? And army's nothing. 'Cause those ordinary people, they're the key. The most ordinary person could change the world. Some ordinary man or woman, Some idiot. All it takes is for him to find, say, the right numbers. Say, the right codes." The Doctor hinted to the camera.
"Say, for example, the codes behind the emotional inhibitor." I said, stepping up next to the Doctor. "The codes right in front of him. Because even an idiot knows his computers these days."
"Yes, knows how to get past passwords, and firewalls, and knows how to find something encrypted in the lumic family database. Under, Binary, what was it Pete, Binary what?"
"Binary Nine." He answered.
"An idiot could find that code. The Cancellation code. And he'd keep on typing, keep on fighting. Anything to save his friends."
"Your words are irrelevant."
"Ha, that's my problem. Talk too much. Lucky I got that cheap Tariff Rose. For all or long chats. On your phone."
"You will be deleted."
"Yes, Delete, Control, hash. All those lovely buttons. Then of course my favorite. Send." He pressed an invisible button in the air. And lets not forget how you seduced all those lovely people in the first place. By making every bit of technology compatible with everything else."
"It's for you." Rose threw him the phone.
"Like this." He plugged it in and all of the cybermen started to malfunction.
"What have you done?" Lumic asked.
"I gave them back their souls. They see what you've done Lumic. and it's killing them." We took off running. We ran through the exploding ruins of the building.
"It's Mickey, he says head for the roof." We took off running. A rope ladder dropped down. Rose, Kathy and I up first, then the Doctor, then Pete. We were hanging high above the exploading ruins. But that's when we saw Lumic, climbing. Kathy let go of the ladder and fell to her death, taking Lumic with her.
"Kathy!" I yelled.
We got back to the TARDIS and plugged the light source into the console. It powered up instantly. The Doctor hugged me and I hugged him back. We got out.
"Rose, we've got five minutes. We need to go." Pete stormed off. Mickey walked over and handed the Doctor his suit.
"Off we got then." The Doctor said.
"Oh, the thing is. I'm staying." Mickey told us.
"Your doing what?"
"Let's just say, I'm taking some wise advice. I found where I belong. And it's not with you. It's here, fighting the war. I've got people that need me."
"But what if I need you?" Rose asked, crying.
"But Rose, you don't. It's just you and him. Now that I'm gone, you better treat her right. She is the best things about both of you combined, so don't you dare mistreat her." He said, pointing at me.
"BUt we'll come and visit."
"No we can't. I told you, traveling between parallel worlds is impossible."
"A wise woman once said, Things are only impossible until someone proves it possible. Until then, we will never see you again." I told Mickey. He hugged me.
"Thank you." He whispered.
"No problem." I left the three of them alone and walked onto the TARDIS. Rose came back in, sobbing. I just hugged her.
We stepped out of the TARDIS. Rose was hugging her mum.
"Who the heck is this?" She asked.
"This is Katherine. She's an alien just like the Doctor."
"It's a pleasure to finally meet you. Rose talks about you all the time."
"I would hope so."
