Two People, Two Paths
Divided Destiny, pt. 01
After separating from their terraforming anxious brethren, the colonists used their acquired resources and knowledge to establish their own colony. They dubbed their new colony
, nestled near the base of a long extinct volcano. Due to the ancient tectonic activity, the area was rich in common ore, providing an abundance of raw material from which to construct their new home. And thrive they did. While the some of the core structures critical to the operation of the colony like the Command Center and Structure Factory remained unchanged from when they liberated it during their exodus, others were redesigned to better fit their own needs and ideals. While
structures were blocky and grey in color,
incorporated more curves in their design and they opted for a more natural, brownish color.
Time passed by for the colonists. Not having to worry about being ridiculed for their ideas or their own safety, moral amongst the colonists were high. Here they were able to explore ways in which to live with the planet rather than bend it to their will. As the population expanded, so did the colony. The construction vehicles of the colony, the Construction Vehicle or ConVec, were busy at work transporting newly constructed Residency Kits from the Structure Factory to their future sites. Currently there were plans for a total of three new Residencies to be constructed to accommodate the colonists. One was currently under construction, estimated to be completed in the next few days. The workers at the Structure Factory were currently busy assembling another kit. Although the process was mostly automated, it still required input from workers to finish the task. The final Residency was on route to the build site in one of the ConVecs.
Nanoha Takamachi leaned over the steering wheel in the cab, "Ugh, why did they have to decide to build the new housing block at the other end of the stupid colony..."
She was dressed in a standard environmental suit. The helmet was placed on the unoccupied seat next to her as the suit was mostly in case of emergencies or exiting the vehicle. Vibrations rocked the small cab, sending her signature sideways ponytail bouncing haphazardly much to her annoyance. The area around the colony was usually smoothed and flat, but the council had also decided to use the construction to expand the colony further. Thus the area was still uneven and rocky. ConVecs were designed to be durable and handle the rough terrain though that didn't mean they could do it with the comfort of the passengers in mind.
Flashing yellow lights ahead signaled that she was nearing her destination. Two workers in suits flagged her down and directed her to the build site next to the near-complete Residency. The ConVec came to a full stop and she shut down the cab before donning her helmet and hopping out into the harsh
environment. Several workers were already at the side control panel to begin unloading and constructing the new structure. With her last delivery done for the day, she headed off to the airlock of the tube that would connect the new structures to the rest of the colony. They not only allowed access without having to venture outside, but provided power and other essential connections.
The green light indicated that the airlock was not pressurized. Not waiting for the door to open, she was quick to remove her helmet and free her cramped hair. The first thing she felt was the rush of cool air against her face, a pleasant change from the hot cab. Entering the tube, she found it to be empty as it was a dead end for now. Once the new Residencies are up and running, the tube will be busy with people heading back and forth between structures.
As she walked down the tube, she checked her suit's clock. Her parents were probably still at work at the bakery they had managed to set up near the cafeteria. It was a much appreciated change of pace from the same old menu everyday for the colonists. There was even word that they had some fans in the higher command that might give them a larger area to expand into. Her older brother and sister, Kyoya and Mitsuki helped out when they could when they weren't studying at the University. She herself was at the age where she could head to study to work in the
labs, but it never caught her interest. When she wasn't out driving or teaching new workers vehicle operation she did her share to help out the business though that was usually between jobs.
Her train of thought was broken as she came to a junction in the tube.
A) Head back to her place to change
B) Grab a bite to eat at the cafeteria
C) Change to Fate PoV
