Divided Destiny, pt. 10
Coming up to the intersection on the tube network, Nanoha went with her first instinct and headed down the left tunnel. The trek took her much longer than usual. The constant tremors and panicked crowds didn't help. Even though the evacuation order had begun to be issued through the colony-wide announcement system, she could see people running back to the Residencies. They were probably trying to save what possessions they had before heading to the evacuation points. Whether that was the smart thing to do could be debated. She, on the other hand, had no time given her work position.
The doors parted and granted her access to the chaos within. Workers were scrambled to get what completed kits they had loaded onto the available ConVecs. Another group was loading spare machinery onto an empty Cargo Truck that was at the loading dock. She quickly and carefully made her way through the maze of people and vehicles towards the few ConVecs parked in the back of the Structure Factory. Finding one that was empty, she hopped into the empty cab and started the engine.
"Takamachi, Nanoha. ID 45775 Alpha-6."
All of the vehicles in the colony were connected to the Command Center and the Robot Command Center. This allowed for each vehicle to be kept track of as well as coordinate movements between vehicles. More importantly it allows for each vehicle to be put under AI control. Usually it was used for mundane tasks like transporting raw ore from the Mines to the Smelters or surveying runs far from the colony. However they couldn't make use of that now. With the entire colony being evacuated they had to manually control each vehicle. Though the communication system was still operational, which meant orders were still able to be given to the drivers.
Incoming transmission: Proceed to Structure Factory #03 for kit retrieval.
Structure Factory #03? That was where they stored some of the emergency kits. That just means her job just got a lot more important, especially if they load up the Command Center or Structure Factory kit onto her ConVec.
Find the path to the doors clear, Nanoha shifted the ConVec into gear and out towards her destination. Outside of the structure was no better than inside. Vehicles were all over the colony. She could see Cargo Trucks loaded with refined common ore, food, and other supplies kicking up dust as they sped away towards the rendezvous point. Other ConVecs were either heading to Structure Factories to be loaded like her or away to join the Cargo Trucks. Evacuation Transports were parked at every available access point to load up colonists.
Pulling up to the loading dock, she had no choice but to wait as the trailer was lowered into the factory to be loaded. Another tremor shook the colony. With nothing attached to the cab, she got a clear view behind her and almost passed out in shock. The mountain that they had built
by was erupting! Black smoke billowed out from the summit as the red-hot lava oozed down the slopes. As she watched, the lava flow came in contact with the Vehicle Factory at the edge of the colony and began to envelope it. It's turbine silos swayed and then collapsed into the burning river. The return of the trailer blocked her view once again. Not wanting to wait any longer, she grabbed the wheel and sped off away from the Structure Factory.
As she drove to meet up with the other vehicles, she dared not look back as
slowly reclaimed its land.
A) Head straight for the rendezvous point
