With their lunch finished, Nanoha bid goodbye to Yuuno. He had classes to get back to and she had work. The tubes around this area where still fairly crowded as she began to make her way back. She came to a junction in the tube network and paused for a moment. A glance at her watch showed that, even at a casual pace, she would arrive early for her shift. While driving around in a cramped cab trying to teach new workers sounded so fun, she figured taking the long way back wouldn't hurt.
Upon exiting from the tubes into another structure, several children run past her, giggling as they do. A small smile comes to her face as she watches them weave around the various potted plants in the commercial structure. Numerous people wandered around the multi-story structure.

Her thoughts wandered back to her conversation with Yuuno about the state of the planet. If even the scientists were at a loss to explain the earthquakes, then just what was going on? Her train of thought is broken as the tube is bathed in red emergency lights. Before she can even gather her thoughts, her pager goes off.
Evacuation Code ALPHA PRIME...Evacuation Code ALPHA PRIME...
Her eyes stared at the message scrolling across the small display. Alpha Prime? That was the code for rapid evacuation of all colonists, supplies, and emergency structure kits! A quick assessment of her location showed her to be near one of the Garages and Structure Factories. She needed to head to one of them and get to an available vehicle to assist in the evacuation per protocol. Just what the hell was going on?
A) Head to the nearest Garage
B) Head to the nearest Structure Factory
C) Change to Fate's PoV
