this blog comes after Crater's post on Project: Spearhead
Ok its has been 12 hours since I got pulled off MY Teams first mission and I'm still waiting for the meeting with the Adminsitrator.
At first I took my time. I tried to get there late. Well it seems the Administrator is a lot more canny than I gave her credit for. In fact I think she's dangerous. I get hourly updates from Prescott about the status of the mission, I wonder if he's a part of this.
An hour later and now Annabell shows up.
"Austin the Adminsitrator wants to see you in the Slipstream Lab. Now." She looks at me aplogetically.
"Ok. This is how it all begins doesn't it?" I ask rhetorically. I get up and walk slowly to the Slipstream labs. I get to the door of the lab and I hesitate.
"Damn! Not now." I mutter to myself.
"This is the first time you've been here since the accident isn't it?" asks Annabell. She remembers that day. Well I'm glad she wasn't there for it.
"Yeah!." I agree. To myself I thought what does the Administrator know.
"Time to shine Koma." I say outloud. I grit my teeth and enter a room I never thought I'd walk into again. I barge in.
"Good morning Dr Peters." Greets the Administrator.
"Thats Koma." I snap back. She wanted to get me angry lets see how she deals with it.
"Of course how could I forget. Only Professor Lorenzo can call you buy your 'old' name." she gestures to Annabell. "I have a question about your handling of Dr Tran's work. Are you meaning to put such a valuable project into mothballs again?" She sounded clear as if she was asking you to pass the salt.
"I know this project. It has possibilities but its too dangerous to continue the way it is right now. " I go to continue but the Administrator interupts.
"Yes I hear you were part of the last, failure." she emphasised the word failure.
"And if you continue to attack the problem the way you are going the same failure is imminent." I said it coldly. I knew the way Tran was going. His scatter shot approach would only get more people killed or worse.
"So is that the reason why you have decided to take on this project by yourself?" Again clear controlled no emotion in her questions.
"Yes as I wrote in my reported to you there needs to be more saftey measures. Also I still havent recieved any information on these dampners and wether they work at all. If we are going to harness the power here we need to make it safe." I emphasised the word safe.
"I was sent here for one specific purpose Koma." her tone was no longer clear now. "And I will have Slipstream up and running as the first Cosmic Powered Energy Station. Your here to make this happen Koma." she paused walked up to me and poked me in the chest. "Your not here to play super-human." Then she walked out of the room.
Yes I was right she is dangerous.
