Divided Destiny, pt. 05
Scientists scrambled about under the red glow. Orders were yelled as they tried to transfer as much experimental data as possible onto portable hard drives. Weaving through her fellow scientists, Fate got to one of the communication panels on the wall and punched in her access code for the lab-to-lab comm line. A private line had been set up to connect all the Standard and Advance Labs in the colony for easier transfer of data and communication between scientists rather than add to the traffic on the normal colony-wide lines. Her eyes darted over the list of labs and fell upon the listing for Advance Lab #03. It was the only lab that was listed as offline. Advance Lab #03 was also where her mother worked.
Her chest tightened as scenarios were running through her head. Was that the reason for the colony-wide evacuation? What had happened to the lab? Was everyone alright? Maybe her mother had managed at get out? Or was she caught in the accident? The lab shook again, snapping Fate out of her daze. She shut down the inter-lab communication screen and brought up the public lines. If there was someone who could give her some answers it was Signum. Security had to know what was going on. Things were not looking good for her as all the lines were busy. It looked like she wasn't the only one who had the idea to call security. Thankfully Signum had given her a private number to reach her in a case of emergency like this. She just hoped that it would get through.
"Signum! It's Fate."
"Testarossa? What are you still doing here? You need to get to an evac point now!"
"What's going on Signum? Communications with Advance Lab #03 is unavailable. What happened?"
"All I know - Route those cargo trucks to the Agriculture Domes ASAP! Once you get them loaded, send them to the rendezvous point right away! - is that something happened at the lab and then the council freaked out and ordered the evacuation. Whatever it is, it's really bad. You need to get out, now!"
The line went dead, leaving Fate staring at the blank screen. One of the scientists was yelling at her that all the data was loaded. Without even thinking, she turned and sprinted to the doors and out of the lab. Rather than head out into the tubes, the scientists headed towards the lab's loading dock. Everyone scrambled to load the hard drives onto the Evacuation Transports and single Scout that was parked. When the last scientist boarded the Evacuation Transport, the loading dock's doors opened and both vehicles, sped out into the dusty
As they drove through the colony, they could see Cargo Trucks and ConVecs rushing to get loaded with precious supplies that they would need. Other Evacuation Transports were docked at structures or driving away from the colony. The evacuation point was located south of the colony. There were already a handful of vehicles at the location. Fate could make out Earthworkers, Robo Miners, Socuts, Convecs, Cargo Trucks, and other Evacuation Transports in the cluster. Then another rumble shook the ground. This time they could see what caused it as a large column of black smoke rose from the colony behind them. Those rumbles weren't earthquakes, they were structures being destroyed. Fate leaned back in her seat in shock. Just what the hell was going on?
A) Try and see if anyone in the transport knew anything about what was going on
B) Wait to see what the evacuation convey was going to do
C) Change to Nanoha's PoV
