A/N: This story is the third in a series. The first two in the series are Abduction and Arcadia.

Chapter One

The Doctor spent some time looking out the doorway of the jettisoned room looking out over the landscape while Jackie tended to Rose. He was terrified it was Gortho and they would have to keep out of the way of slavers looking for people to work the magma mines. So far he hadn't seen any movement but that didn't mean anything since the slaves and their masters spent the majority of their lives deep underground.

He heard a groan and turned to see Jackie beckoning to him excitedly as Rose was finally waking up. Jackie called her daughter's name while Rose slowly regained consciousness. Finally, after a few minutes, her eyes opened and she looked at the Doctor and her mother.

"I hit my head, didn't I?" she said.

"Yes, but luckily, it wasn't as bad as it could have been," the Doctor said. "However, Callisto has possessed my TARDIS and he jettisoned your bedroom into the middle of a group of volcanoes."

Rose's eyes widened.

"Volcanoes?" she said.

"They're not erupting at the moment," the Doctor said. "Although, that could change which is why we need to find a way out of here."

Rose tried to sit up and groaned as pain flared up inside her head. She lay her head back down on the pillow while the Doctor went to her cupboard. He pulled out the emergency kit which was contained inside a large briefcase. He brought it over to the end of the bed, laid it down on its side and opened it. He took out some ibuprofen and a plastic cup. He went into the en suite bathroom, filled the cup up with water and took everything over to Rose while Jackie helped her sit up. Rose thanked him and took the tablets and cup.

"So what do we do now?" Rose said to him after she swallowed the tablets and lay back down.

"Well obviously, we have to wait until you are well enough to walk," the Doctor said.

He walked back over to the doorway and peered out. The air was smoky and he guessed filled with toxins from the volcanoes. None were erupting at the moment so the air was clear enough to see into the distance. He couldn't see the TARDIS but he guessed that Callisto could have left the moment he jettisoned the bedroom. He hoped Jack and the others were alright. If Callisto had control of his ship, he could do anything he wanted with them and trap them inside so they couldn't escape.

While he scanned the horizon, his keen eyes suddenly saw someone peeking out from behind a large rock about fifty feet away from him. It was quick but he could tell the person was humanoid, female and she looked like she had a gas mask strapped to her face. He stared at the rock, waiting for another sign of the female while Jackie chatted with Rose. Suddenly, they heard a thump above them and everyone jerked their head up.

"What was that?" Rose said.

"I think someone just jumped down onto the top of this room," the Doctor said to them. "I thought I saw a woman duck behind that large rock over there," he added, pointing to the rock.

"You mean, people live here?" Jackie said in shock. "There's nothing but volcanoes out there."

"There are creatures in the universe that exist in volcanic conditions or under them," the Doctor said. "Just keep calm."

Jackie and Rose gasped when a woman suddenly dropped down in front of the doorway. She was wearing a grey bodysuit and boots and wore a matching gas mask. The gas mask only covered her nose and mouth and was strapped around her face. Dark green eyes studied the Doctor while she aimed a small blaster at him. Her blonde hair had silver streaks at the temples and it was pulled back in a ponytail. The Doctor noticed that the right side of her chest was flat while the other side was busty. The Doctor guessed the woman had a mastectomy in the past.

"Hello, I'm the Doctor and this is Jackie and Rose," he said, gesturing to them. "Who are you and where are we?"

The woman glowered at him before turning her attention to Rose and Jackie. The Doctor noticed she was beckoning to them and ignoring him completely. Just then, the other woman popped up from behind the rock. She also wore a grey bodysuit and had jet black hair that was pulled back in a bun.

"Who are they, Sheena?" the woman behind the rock yelled.

"Don't know but there are two women in here," Sheena yelled back.

"And me, don't forget me," the Doctor said.

"They have a stallion in here as well," Sheena called back.

The Doctor frowned and looked around for the stallion she was talking about. Then Sheena took a tentative step inside the doorway and the Doctor gasped when she grabbed his bodysuit and shoved him up against the wall.

"Oi!" Jackie said as she walked around the bed towards her. "What the hell are you doing?"

"I'm restraining your stallion," Sheena said to her.

"Stallion? He's not a stallion, he's a man," Rose said.

"Exactly," Sheena said, holding the blaster under the Doctor's chin.

By now, the other woman was at the doorway and was peering into the room.

"What is this? Some sort of tent?" she said, looking around the interior.

"It's my daughter's bedroom, it got separated from our ship," Jackie said.

"My ship might be around here some…"

"SILENCE!" Sheena said to the Doctor when he tried to explain.

"Oi, what is your problem, lady?" Jackie said to her. "He's my friend and my daughter's boyfriend. He's not a stallion."

"He is, here," Sheena said. "Here, women rule and men are nothing more than brood mares and slaves for us."

Dead silence fell over the room while Jackie and Rose looked at the Doctor. By now, the other woman had stepped into the room and was now holding a second blaster to his cheek.

"Wow, this has suddenly become very awkward," the Doctor said.
