"I believe you all know why I've gathered you here today," the Doctor said, pacing back and forth with his hands folded behind his back. "So I'll get right into it. Anyone with any information, step forward now."
The Doctor waited, looking at each face. "What, no takers? I didn't want to play hardball but I will if I have to. "
Waiting another moment he sighed, reaching into his coat. "Well, you leave me no choice. Perhaps -this-," a large, silvery fish was pulled out and waved before the group. " - will jog your memory. "
The young dragons yipped and screeched at the sight of food, starting forward with open jaws. "Ah ah ah nooo, you lot can't expect something for nothing! Whoever can tell me who ate my key will have a nice, juicy fish in their belly. "
All the young dragons chirped up at once, each bouncing or stretching to get the square-jawed Doctor to pay attention to them. "What's that? Who was it, then? "
All near-dozen heads turned towards a gathering of rocks not far from where he'd summoned them. Looking over then back at the still-bobbing group he walked towards, then around the rocks. A lone young dragon lay there, it's large eyes closed and quietly groaning. "So there you are my little thief. Seen better days, have you?" Tossing the fish in the direction of the others the Doctor crouched beside the moaning creature. "I'm sorry to say, you'll just have to wait for it to pass." There was an especially loud groan and the Time Lord cringed. "Believe me, I'm not looking forward to -that- any more than you are."
