STORY TIME::::::::::::::::::
"The Tardis Incident" Part 2 by Elizabeth Hensley If want to give feedback or check out the other fics, you can go to :: www.gigglesfromheaven.org

Murdock stared at Billy, his brow furrowed with puzzlement. "Last time I saw you get that upset we had a rattlesnake in our camp, a real one."

"Is that it, Billy?" Murdock wiggled out from underneath the Rabbit and cautiously touched the large blue box. It felt solid, but it seemed to be vibrating under his fingers. He took his hands away from its sides as if they had been stung. His eyes widened. He thumped it. lt sounded solid too. A suspicious statement flashed across Murdock's brown eyes. "Is this real?"

Billy gave a low whine as an answer in the affirmative.

Murdock stroked his chin, a thoughtful statement on his face. "And who says I can t tell fantasy from reality?"

3Suddenly a door on the side of the box flung open and three such apparitions as he never could have imagined came popping out, rapidly, like jack-in-the-boxes.

The first to emerge was a huge, curly-haired, buggy-blue-eyed fellow wearing a scruffy red coat, a battered felt hat, and an incredibly long rainbow-colored scarf. He was followed by a little metal dog on caterpillar treads and a black- haired lady wearing pink coveralls.

Murdock ducked back underneath the Rabbit again and motioned for Billy and George to do the same. Whatever this new development was, it definitely didn' t warrant revealing their presence too quickly.

The lady seemed amused about something. "This doesn't look like the space shuttle bay, Doctor!"

The scarfed fellow gave the lady a big childlike grin that made Murdock want to smile himself. "I do believe you are right, Sarah, but he was here. I'm picking up mental traces of him even now."

The lady made a funny face. "Ohhhh, you Time Lords! Why don't you try playing some other game instead of hide-and-seek?"

The one addressed as the Doctor shook his head. "It s not really funny, Sarah. If he takes that nerve gas and uses it on somebody...In the wrong hands that stuff is deadly, and the Master is very definitely the wrong hands for it. Rotten luck!"

"You'll catch him, Doctor!"

"Why, of course I will. I'm the Doctor!"

The lady nodded. "Right!"

Suddenly the little metal dog came trundling over to the Rabbit.. "Master, there is a human being hiding underneath this car."

Murdock put his hands to his mouth. "Oh-oh. We've been detected!" He came wiggling out, then decided the bold approach was the best. "Howdy! I'm Howling Mad Murdock and this here's Billy and George. Don't worry, they don't bite -he gave them a sudden fierce glare- unless I ask them to. However, I've been known to bite when necessary. What about you guys?"

The long scarfed one suddenly started pumping Murdock's hands. "I'm the Doctor, and this is Sarah, and that's K- nine Mark III. Aren't you, K-nine?"

"Affirmative, Master."

Murdock noticed with amusement that the little robot's antenna tail was wagging.

Sarah stared at Murdock's obviously psychotic eyes and the two bare patches of air that he had calmly introduced as 'Billy' and 'George'. She cleared her throat nervously. "Are you harmless?"

Murdock politely removed his baseball cap and twisted it between his hands shyly. "That depends ma'am."

"Depends on what?" the Doctor wanted to know.

''On whether I can afford the luxury. Are YOU harmless?"

The Doctor grinned. "That depends on the same." He started fishing around in his scruffy coat pockets.

Murdock eyed him suspiciously.

"Don't worry, the Doctor said quickly. "You ll like this. Here we go. Have a jelly baby!" The Doctor offered Murdock a crumpled sack.


Uncertain, Murdock looked at the bag and then back at the Doctor.

"Don t be scared!" The Doctor's voice was as soothing as a warm electric blanket on a winters day. "See? They're candy, and they're good." The Doctor took one himself and offered one to Sarah. Then he offered the bag back to Murdock. Murdock took one cautiously and bit into it.

It was much too sweet for his tastes, but somehow the taking of the candy cemented the three of them as friends.

Murdock could feel the paranoia washing away from him like a dark cloud being burned away by a lovely sunny day. There was something about this Doctor fellow that brought out sanity even in him. Murdock checked his creatures. Billy was wagging his tail and George was practically purring. That was enough for Murdock. He trusted his hallucinations. If they liked the Doctor, then he was to be liked.

Murdock grinned and drawled, "I escaped from the L.A. V.A. psychiatric ward. Where did you escape from?"

The Doctor roared at this as if it were terribly funny. 'Gallifrey."

Sarah started to giggle.

"That a good asylum, or what?"

"No, the Doctor said sadly. Then he pointed to the large blue box. "But she is."

Sarah started giggling even harder. "The Doctor lived on a lunatic asylum called Earth for many years, Mr. Murdock."

Puzzled, Murdock frowned, trying to remember something. "I think I've been there, but I can't remember."

Sarah said quickly, I'm sure it will come back to you!"

Murdock suddenly gave the Doctor a big bear hug. "I like you, Doctor! And George and Billy likes you too!"

The Doctor's eyes widened solemnly. Seriously he said, "Indeed!" He bent down and patted the air. "Well, Billy, I'm pleased to meet you."

K-nine suddenly lifted his head. "Master! My sensors indicate there is no life form in front of you. You are offering affectionate flesh contact to nothing."

The Doctor gave K-nine a dirty look. "K-nine, you are only a computer. You have certain ways of sensing the universe and I have certain ways. They are not always the same. I can see Billy, therefore Billy is here."

Murdock was delighted. "You can see him! You too? Oh boy!"

The Doctor gave a wise smile. "Ah yes, you see, I am a Time Lord! By the way, George is an obvious name for a dragon, but why did you name the dog Billy?"

Murdock was still in highest heaven. At last, a being who really understood him. Someone who could look at the universe the way he saw it and find it equally wonderful, frightening, and amazing. 'I named him Billy 'cause of Billy the Kid. He's an outlaw too. Just like me and my friends.
"Friends? You mean Billy and George..."

Suddenly a bullet whizzed over the Doctor s head, practically singeing his curly hair.

The Doctor felt his hair to make sure it was still all there. His buggy blue eyes bugged out even further. "What was that?"

"Decker," Murdock explained as he ducked down underneath the Rabbit again. "He's kind of mad at us."

"You?" The Doctor was puzzled, but not puzzled enough not to wiggle underneath the car with Murdock as Sarah was doing. It was kind of a tight fit: one lunatic, one British newspaper reporter, one dog, one Time Lord. and one dragon. "You seem harmless enough. Why would anyone shoot at you?"

"He's crazy."

"I thought you said YOU were crazy."

"I am, but all I hallucinate are dragons and doggies and voices. Decker hallucinates trouble, and he thinks we're it, and we're not."

"You mean your dragon, yourself, and Billy?"

"No. The A-Team."

"The A-Team?" The Doctor scratched the back of his curly heed. "A-Team?... Ah yes! I remember now! Why, you are Howling Mad Murdock"

The Doctor started pumping Murdock s arms again.

This thoroughly confused the gentle lunatic. "Didn't we already do this?"

The Doctor laughed. "Yes, I guess we did. Why, the Brigadier has something on you in his files, a long time ago. I had another body then. It's kind of hard to remember, but...ah yes, it s coming back to me now. I wouldn't worry too much about Decker, Murdock. The governments of the free world know what you are up to."

"They do?" Murdock was intrigued.

"They can't come right out and condone terrorists, now can they? Not even when they work for the free world on the side of mercy and justice, but they do know what you're up to." Murdock's eyes widened. "They do?" Not in his wildest imagination had this idea occurred to him.

The Doctor grinned. "And I take it that the rest of your team is somewhere about also?"

Murdock nodded toward B.A.'s van. "In there. They're going to try and make a run for it. I was supposed to hide because Decker doesn't know I'm out of my hospital room. They would pick me up later when and if it's safe."

The Doctor motioned to Murdock, then grabbed him by the arm and gently pulled him into the Tardis. Murdock, used to being hauled around by the attendants at the V.A., let himself be led.

Inside, Murdock s brown eyes widened. "Hey, man, this is impossible! Even I realize it s impossible. Mama Mia! Adios, muchachos! I need a big dose of Thyroxine!"

The Doctor laughed. "No, it's real, lunatic. Come, we've got a little surprise for your friends." He danced about his console and started flipping switches and twisting dials. The control column started moving and all of a sudden the loud whiny noise started. Then, before Murdock's amazed brown eyes, the A-Team van appeared in the Tardis control room.

The Doctor had somehow materialized the Tardis around the van!

Inside, the van was suddenly flooded with light and BA. let out a "What the...?" and let his voice trail off. He glared out the window into the smiling, hat-doffing face of the Doctor.

"Hullo", he greeted them all calmly. "Have a jelly baby. I just was having the most interesting conversation with your friend here. You're in trouble, but don t worry."

Stay tuned to part 3!!
