Divided Destiny, pt. 03
Evening had descended upon the colony of
. It was a time for most of the workers and scientists to rest before beginning again the next day. Some jobs, like police patrols and operation of critical structures like the Command Center had people on shift all day. Thankfully for Fate, she was not in one of those jobs. As one of the many scientists in the colony, she gets the evenings to herself. There are times when she is able to take several days off due to the nature of the experiments they were running though there were also the ones were she would have to work late hours for days at a time. In the end, it all balanced out somehow.
Like many her age, she had already moved out of her parent's place and into her own room in one of the Residencies. Sometimes she wondered if it was a good idea to have moved out. Her mother now had this large place all to herself since her father passed away some years ago in a surveying accident. They had been there for each other, helping one another through it. Although now her mother was constantly busy. Unlike herself, she worked in one of
Advanced Labs. Now that she thought about, all the scientists working in the various labs have been pretty busy the last few weeks. She had inquired with her mother about it, but her clearance wasn't high enough. The only thing she could think of that they were working on was the terraforming project
had put its hopes into.
A few days ago they had announced that their terraforming plan would be accomplished in a matter of decades, rather than the centuries many thought it would take. While many were skeptical, it was mostly accepted and celebrated about. No doubt the
council would be in an uproar when they find out in the next conference. Speaking of
, the blond's thoughts strayed for a moment to her friend far off living in that colony. She hoped that the encrypted and hidden communication feed in the last transmission reached her alright. Having friends in the Command Centers of both colonies had its perks. Her eyes wandered to the breast pocket of her coat. There a golden, triangular was clipped with her name engraved on it. It had been a present from Nanoha when she had found out about her desire to work in the labs. Though at the time Nanoha didn't know about the private lessons her mother was giving her which allowed her to graduated from the University earlier than usual.
A few turns later brought Fate to her room. Her coat was hung up and shoes places aside by the door. Some lights in the darkness outside her window caught her attention. Peering out, she could barely make out 2 or 3 vehicles departing from one of the Advance Labs and away from the colony. This had been happening for almost a month or at least from this lab in particular. While no one was explaining these nightly runs, it did help to fuel the rumors of experiments being conducted in secret. Terraforming experiments were the most common rumor given the big hype around it. Then there were the others like a secret labor camp where they took
supporters or hidden labs where they were making monsters for an army. Whatever it was, it was probably supported by the council given the frequency of the trips and their starting point at the Advance Lab.
Speaking of late-night runs, she wasn't exactly tired. Her mind pondered what she could do to kill some time as staring at the ceiling was not her idea of a plan.
A) See if one of her friends were working the night shift
B) Head out for a late-night snack
C) Change to Nanoha's PoV
