Two People, Two Paths
Divided Destiny, pt. 13
Mother and daughter parted ways back at the entrance to the lab. The metal doors closed, leaving Fate alone with her thoughts. Her original plan to head back to work just didn't seem like a good idea at the moment, not with the information her mother divulged to her fresh in her mind. With no room to retreat to, she opted to take a walk instead. It would be better than standing around and letting her new knowledge eat away at her.
Walking away from the lab, she was alone. Even given the current circumstances, the rules about keeping the tubes in front of structures was strictly enforced. Not only was it a safety hazard, but allowed for people to enter and leave easier. The lack of distractions let her mind wander the most recent thoughts: The Blight. Just what had they been thinking when they developed such a microbe? Surely the scientists on the project would have realized that they needed a counter-measure in case it would get out of hand. Historical documents from Earth had many lessons of engineered bio-organisms which had gotten lose. It was also taught and emphasized at the University. Unless...the council. The council was the only group powerful enough to override procedures. But why? Were they really that determined to terraform the planet?
Coming upon the intersection in the tubes, her thoughts are abruptly broken. The sections before her were filled with people. Since the evacuation of the main colony, there hasn't been enough time or materials to construct Residencies to accommodate all the colonists. As a result, most are forced to spend their nights in the tubes between structures with that little belongings they had if any at all. A path was kept clear for foot traffic, but it still felt cramped. Fate carefully made her way through the wall of people. She couldn't help but notice the expression on their faces. That look of worry and fear of the unknown. Besides the council and a few scientists which now included herself, no one knew about the cause of the evacuation. If word got out about the microbe, who knows what would happen. What was sure was that it would definitely not help the current morale, as low as it already was.
A glance at her watch showed that she had better start getting back to the lab.
