Author's Notes:
All information about the interdimensional hypothesis comes from Wikipedia.

“... So in reality there are three dimensions of space and only one dimension of time. That’s what I think Time Lord science is: bigger on the inside, because space has more dimensions. There’s only one Time Vortex because time only has one dimension; it can just go different directions.”

“And you figured this out how?” Sarah Jane asks, taking a bite of her sandwich.

“The interdimensional hypothesis created by Ufologists a long time ago. I just took what they believe and put it together with what the Doctor has told me. I ran it by Mr. Smith, and he seems to think I’m on to something.” Luke’s eyes are bright with excitement, and he’s smiling brilliantly.

“Well, if Mr. Smith thinks you’re on the right track, I’m sure you’re right.”

“I can’t wait to tell Maria and Clyde!” the teenager exclaims, standing up.

“I’m sure they’ll be thrilled, but right now it’s lunchtime. Sit,” Sarah Jane orders.

Reluctantly, Luke takes his seat again and begins eating his fruit, his leg bouncing restlessly and jiggling the kitchen table. Sarah Jane stifles a laugh. Her adopted son’s intelligence never ceases to amaze her, and his unrestrained enthusiasm for new knowledge has yet to dwindle. She hopes he never loses his innocence; he’s seen so much, but he’s still a child in her eyes, and she wants him to stay that way.

Suddenly Luke stops eating. “What’s that?” he asks, pointing.

Sarah Jane looks behind her. A translucent tunnel hovers near the back door. Its rotation picks up speed and creates a powerful wind. The journalist cries out in alarm as she feels herself lifted out of her chair.

“Mum?!” Luke shouts, fear plain in his voice.

“Get K-9 out and stay in the house! I love you!” Sarah Jane calls.

There’s a blinding flash of light. When it’s gone, her chair is empty.
