After being stuck in those hot vehicle cabs all day, a shower sounded really good to Nanoha. Not to mention ditching her environmental suit and sweat-soaked clothes. She didn't even want to think about having to sit around in them for any longer that she had to. With her decision made, she pivoted and began the trek back to the Residency her room was located in.
The structure was located in the second housing section built for the colony. That also meant it was filled to capacity since the section she had just come from was to be the 5th. Nearing her destination, the frequency of other colonists increased. Parents and their children walked along hand-in-hand, workers from different structures milled about either going to or coming from their jobs, and the occasional police officer zipped by on their electric scooter. Before she knew it, her destination was in sight.
Her room was located on the third floor of the structure, just down the hall from the stairs. While there was an elevator available, she often chose to take the stars as they tended to be faster. Plus the little extra walking wasn't going to kill her. If anything it helped her to retain her figure. A swipe of her ID card and the door slid aside to grant her entrance.
Since she was living alone, her place wasn't large though it also wasn't too small either. It came with the basic necessities of a small kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and a common room. A single window was located in the common room. From her room you could see the ancient volcano beyond the colony. While it seemed intimidating at times, it had a sort of natural beauty to it. A quick press of a button locked the door to provide her some added privacy before heading off to her room to shower.
The suit and helmet were tossed haphazardly in a corner and her clothes peeled off and dropped unceremoniously on the floor as she walked. In order to conserve space, the bathroom was installed with a single shower surrounded by frosted glass. It could barely fit 2 people comfortably and had no option of being used as a tub. Colonists were encourage to take short showers to conserve their water supply, though she did like to indulge with a long shower every so often. Today was not one of those days.
With towel wrapped around her body, she grabbed a second to dry her hair. She made her way back into her room and sat down at her dresser, eyes wandering over the the various items until they paused on one particular item. The towel was tossed aside to free her hands to pick up the necklace. It was a simple, brown rope and clasp with strung through the gold setting that held a red orb. A smile came to her lips as she turned the small item between her fingers. It had been a gift from her friend back when she was still with
. Though it wasn't overly large, she preferred not to wear it while working so not to lose it around all the machinery and vehicles. Setting it around her neck, she wandered out into the small common room and out the window at the arid New Terra landscape. Her mind wandered to her friend Fate, wondering how she was doing in
