“You mustn’t die, Doctor.”
Nyssa’s voice came from far away and Adric felt compelled to agree. “You know that, Doctor,” he said into the darkness. The air was biting cold and he could see trees moving in the wind.
Adric woke in his bed on the TARDIS. He lay still, getting his bearings while listening to the familiar sounds of the ship. It must have been a dream but, just to be sure, he left his bedroom and headed toward the console room. There he found the Doctor tinkering and talking to himself. Adric smiled and went back to bed.
