It's been a couple months. The temperature has dropped rapidly, and it is late fall. The rains are cold, and the people living in the tent city outside are miserable. Tensions continue to grow between the "haves", those who live inside the Ascendant, and the "have nots", those in The Bay and outside. It's only a matter of time.
Somewhere near the fourth transit (~4 AM on Earth) you're awoken by a series of explosions inside the Ascendant, three of them in rapid succession. The floor, the walls, the ceiling, all shook from the blast, which reverberated everywhere. The lights flickered off just moments ago...
Kiddo, Hump slept through the whole damn thing. Your mom fell asleep in Ollie's room, again. She's spent most nights in the extra bed beside him, just being near him. VB woke screaming, this really set her off. She's covered in sweat right now, still screaming, clutching to you in the dark. You're not quite clear if she knows it's you, she's calling you "lime". This must be triggering her accident, because she never does this, right? When was the last time she lost it like this, Kiddo? How did you help her then?
Proper, you're in your normal nightly routine, sleeping with Tulle in your arms. Did you two frak tonight? She smells like other men, two of them, in fact. She was really worn, and a little sore. How are things with Janco lately? She's come around a few times, hasn't she? Who among your crew is in the infirmary right now, Proper, and for what? Tulle sits bolt upright, then once the rumbling stops, she's up, trying to find a light or something, which is how you knew the power is off. Even the air.
Stitch, you were asleep when it happened, Amelia lying between you and Metro. She's shivering and whimpering in fear, Metro hopped up instantly, he's patching into the systems to see what's wrong. I assume you've got Amelia in your arms, right? Where has Svenja been staying? Still with the Candies, right? Do you let her in the infirmary, even though she's a risk? What have you told her about a cure for her mental triggers from the iso process?
What do you do?
