“What’s ‘appening?” Donna shouted over the sound of the wind and rain. “Where’s everybody goin’?”

The planet’s natives were rushing past them, all heading in the same direction, up the steeply sloping path.

Casting a look at the sky, the Doctor took in the leaden clouds and the pouring rain. “I don’t know, but I think we should follow!”

Grabbing Donna by the arm, he practically pulled her along in the wake of the settlement’s inhabitants. They’d barely reached the ridge top before water swept through the village, flooding it. Everybody cheered.

“Why’re they cheering?”

“Their houses are still standing.”

The End
