Chapter 2: Don't go into strange blue boxes that appear out of nowhere

NOTE: I've changed to the past tense. I think the story will be easier to tell this way. Sorry if I'm being confusing. :/ And I've also made the pictures bigger. :)

~One Year Later~

"Yet another meteor has landed just off of Plumbob Road. The Science Facility is still not sure what's causing so many meteors to land in one place, but they assure us they are looking into it. And now, to Sports." 

I turned off the tv and curled up on the sofa. It was weird, having so many meteors land in one place. After the first two meteors had landed Robert had insisted that we figure out what was going on. He thinks the people at the Science Facility are a bunch of dunderheads, and I'm going to have to agree with him on that one.

Being lots more, um, obsessed with this "problem" than I was, he was the one who had been doing the actual researching. I'd just been checking his results and helping him with conclusions. From what we had figured out so far, the meteors were were being attracted to something. Robert had made it his mission to find out what that something was. 

Ring, Ring. My phone was ringing in the middle of the night. I turned over and looked at my clock. 11:07 pm. The only person crazy enough to call me at this time of night would be Robert. I sighed and sleepily grabbed my phone.

"Hello?" I mumbled into the phone. 

"Hi! It's Robert!" I'd noticed. "Listen, I think I found out why the meteors are landing where they are. Meet me at the site in ten minutes."

I groaned. "Can't this wait? It's eleven o'clock at night and we have school tomorrow. Plus, it's after curfew." 

"Seriously, it won't take long. And where's your sense of adventure? Ten minutes, okay?"

"Fine. Meet you there in ten minutes." I said, and put down my phone. I quickly pulled on my clothes and snuck out to the meteorite site.


"See?" Robert pointed at the strange blue telephone box under the trees which were near where the meteors had been landing.

I looked over at him, confused. "How come no one has ever noticed this before?" 

Robert grinned at me. He looked way too excited about this. "Perception Filter! I used the Revealer I've been making to make us able to see it." 

I nodded. "That makes sense. But you are not going inside that thing. Have you figured out how this thing is attracting the meteors? And why it's here?" 

"Uh, no. Not yet. Oh, and that's a great idea! Going inside, I mean." 

I raised my eyebrows at him. "Excuse me? Don't go into strange meteor-attracting telephone boxes in the middle of the woods that you know nothing about?" 

Robert just gave me a mysterious smile. "Seriously, Gracie, what could possibly go wrong?" 

Oh, so many things...

Sorry this chapter was rather short. Also, I have edited Grace's backstory a bit. If you read that chapter the day it was published, if you could please reread the first 3 or so paragraphs. I would love it if you did. :3 
Just btw, the LLAMA in my story isn't just a LLAMA. If you have watched Doctor Who you probably know what I am talking about. :)
Oh, and something totally unrelated to this story: I thought I'd share some of my favorite sim blogs with you. (In no particular order) They're all really good. <3 

That's all, and have a very nice day. :)


  1. Aww <3 thankyou for mentioning me :D

    This is looking to be an exciting story! I wonder where (or when) they will go! ;) I used to love Doctor Who, but haven't watched it for years now! I started working later and so missed it, and then when I started working earlier again I just forgot about it. You've inspired me to find out when it's next on! Haha

    1. Thank you! :D

      And you're welcome, It's quickly become one of my favourite blogs to read. :)

      Doctor Who is such an amazing show! At the moment it's got an evil (but very good) writer so "winter break" is lasting from Nov of last year to April/May (I think :P) But we are in the middle of season six so if you stopped watching a while ago you still have a lot to catch up on. :)

  2. TARDIS! I have found you! -slight Doctor who fan here. I've watch the episodes with Christopher Eccleson as the doctor- I okay that this chapter is a bit short, I know I've had shorter ones.

    Anyway, great post!


    1. That is supposed to say -its okay-


    2. Thanks so much! :D

      And OMG another DW fan! :D I'm glad that all of you will be getting my references. :P I hope to stick some other scifi references in later, I hope everyone will get them! :D (From Star Trek and Stargate in particular. :) )
