Nanoha yawned from behind the wheel of the Cargo Truck. The vehicle, loaded to the brim with refined common metals, lumbered along. She had been sitting behind the wheel for what seemed hours now.
"What a day to take a double-shift," she muttered to herself.
The Structure Factory was within sight, meaning that she had only 2 more trips to make from the Smelter before she was off for the day. She pulled up to the dock and waited for the automated system to unload her cargo. The unloading process took a few minutes which gave her time to stretch out in the small cab. A jolt to the cab caught her attention. Turning around to check to make sure the cargo bed was secure showed that it was still missing.
The cab shook again. This time she grabbed her seat and waited for it to upside. Over the past few weeks earthquakes had begun to become noticeable to the colonists. From what she managed to gather from her friends in the Command Center the quakes had been going on for longer than that, just that they were not large enough to be felt. They had also gotten larger and more frequent in the past week or so. What it all meant she wasn't sure. Supposedly the planet was geologically dead, whatever that meant. Arisa had tried to explain it to her once, but she didn't quite grasp the concept. Her cab shook again, but his time it was the cargo bed being re-attached. Like the other quakes, she pushed the thought of them aside and drove off back to the Smelter. Finishing her shift was her top priority right now.
Another week passed by. Even though the earthquakes were still occurring, the colonists didn't let it affect their daily lives. Many considered it just another aspect of the planet to live with. The Earth supposedly had a lot more natural disasters and such than
so an occasional earthquake wasn't much to complain about. Some even began to jokingly bet amongst themselves for when the next one would strike.
It was the afternoon and Nanoha found herself wandering the tubes. It had been forever since the communication satellite was shut down. Part of her was worried for Fate over at
. She had no way to communicate with her anymore and see how she was doing. Especially with all the rumors of the possible crazy terraforming experiments
was doing made her worry for her friend even more.
She paused her stride and turned her head around to see who was calling her. The waving hand instantly showed her who to look for. "Ah, Yuuno!"
The bi-speckled blond closed the distance and nodded a hello. "On your lunch break?"
Yuuno was another one of her good friends. She had met him while in elementary school. Unlike her, he had decided to pursue a further education and was currently enrolled at the University. "Uh, huh. What are you doing out here, though? Don't you have class today?"
"Had. We got out early since all that's essentially left are our final projects which are due tomorrow."
"Ah, I see."
"Anyway, did you want to grab some lunch? Wouldn't be good for you to head back to work on an empty stomach. You know how cranky you can get."
Her cheeks puffed out as she playfully hit him. "Mou!"
A) Join Yuuno for lunch
B) I'm not really that hungry
C) Change to Fate's PoV
