"Couldn't you have brought us anywhere a bit more interesting?"

By 'more interesting', the Master really meant a planet with anything at all he could use to hide or escape from the Doctor. This one, with fields of purple grass as far even a Time Lord eye could see, did not fit that criteria. There was also the larger problem that the planet's atmosphere was not breathable. The two of them were lying in that grass in an atmosphere created by the TARDIS' extending its defense shields, although the Master had insisted on keeping a considerable distance from the Doctor. They were supposed to be cloudgazing-- Kelboros-5 was famous for its semi-sentient cloud formations manifesting a low-level psychic field, which would metamorphose them in response to faint psychic cues from the minds of visitors. Those with a bit of telepathic skill could control these clouds, to some extent, and it was considered an art in some cultures.

But the Master's eyes were continually drawn to the TARDIS. It was locked up, of course; else-wise the Master would have been long gone from this planet by now, and the Doctor would be asphyxiating slowly. The idea thrilled him.

Above their heads, the clouds morphed into a cruel-beaked bird swooping down on a snake, catching it in its talons and shaking fiercely.

His hands were under his head and a smile appeared upon his face as he looked up at the clouds forming above them. He loved this, relaxing on the grass and looking up at the clouds, it was a good pasttime. Glancing over at the Master he watched and wondered how he was holding up, after the episode in Jacks room, he felt a little tense at times.

But it all seemed calm, at the moment.

As he watched the clouds he gave a soft "ooooh," whe he stopped the picture of a cow being milked, "Reminds me, we're out of milk for tea."

"Oh no, goats milk in tea?" He pulled a face at that, "No, you have to get that from cows, tastes better if you do." And the Doctor watched as the cow turned into a steak and then burst into flames. So the Doctor changed it to be on a plate with some chips and mushy peas. Mmmm, yummy!

Oh look, there's another cloud formation changing. It's a memory from their past, a memory from before, from when they were friends.

The Doctor watched the clouds with a smile on his face, the two boys running and tumbling was such a good memory. The old days when things were simpler, when this man laying with him was his friend, a good friend. But how times had changed, the worst of enemies and still under it all friends. At least in the Doctor's eyes.

As one boy seemed to push the other off the cliff, a cloud seemed to catch him and stop him from falling, they hovered there and reached out a hand, tugging the other boy up too.

Sighing softly the Doctor moved to sit up, he was actually enjoying himself out here watching the cloud. As he noticed one boy strangling the other and frowned a little before the image changed to ice creams. Oh, he wouldn't mind some ice cream.

So, in the end the Doctor got to his feet and headed towards the TARDIS, his hands shoved deep into his pockets. The words 'Kill joy' might have appeared in the clouds, but the Doctor didn't see them. "Right then, "he opened the door and headed inside."

The Doctor looked back at the Master as he held the door open and he sighed softly, " Are you coming inside or not?" But not waiting for him to reply, the Doctor headed inside and left the door on the latch so the Master could come in when he was ready. So, while he was waiting, the Doctor started to fiddle with the console, humming to himself.

"Oh come on, what are you..." And the Doctor stopped when he saw the Master step out of the shield and his eyes went wide, "What are you? What is wrong with you?"

He ran towards the edge of the shield, his eyes watching the Master, "Come on, please. You don't have to do this. We can work something out. Please." The thought of being alone, it scared the shit out of him, completely.

"You can't, you don't want to die like this." The Doctor looked at him, his eyes still wide and he hovered around the edge of the shield, "Do you really want to die like this?"

He didn't know what else to do or say, the only other thing he could do would be to step out of the shield and probably get them both killed. And how his self preservation kicked in.

Oh, what to do, what to do. The Doctor stood there watching him, rolling back and forth on his feet. What could he do to persuade him to come back?

With a sigh, the Doctor took a deep breath before heading out of the shield in hopes to grab the Master and drag him back.

"Woah," And the Doctor was at his side, arm going around him as he tugged him up to his feet, "Not exactly a clever move there, was it."

He reached over and dragged the Master back into the shielded area,

Sighing softly the Doctor held up his hand and clicked his fingers, the door to the TARDIS swinging closed before the Master could get inside.

Sighing softly he shook his head, "Nice try, but not fast enough."

"What? That old thing?" He looked at the Master and shrugged his shoulders, "That's nothing really, just a fun little thing I can do."

Slowly the Doctor walked towards him, a slightly smug smile upon his face. He moved to the door and held it open, waiting for the Master to join them inside the TARDIS.

With a sigh the Doctor nodded. Of course he knew that this wouldn't last, but he could hope that it would, couldn't he? With a soft sigh he followed the Master into the TARDIS, closing the door behind them.

"Right, well I need to get milk, we've run out." So Earth bound they were.
