The Readout

Posted on Mon Feb 19th, 2018 @ 12:24pm by Lieutenant Commander Akelia Felnost



Voyage to Mutiny
Location: Zulu Point

Akelia could hear the sounds behind her. It was very faint and no light came from their location even though it was night and under a half moon. They were good at what they were doing.

Akelia was below and the only real one visible, though people would be hard pressed to tell she was a she. Her skin was colored to match the local level and her antennas were hidden under a fur cap. Fake wrinkles and a white beard that matched her hair. Her ragged fur clothing showed of a person who had been in the woods a long time. With her walking stick and stoop, she made a good old man.

Recon was out there, she knew. They were wearing cloaking suits. Given their location and season, early spring, there was little chance of someone coming along during the engineer's work. However, in case anyone came by, she would serve as a distraction while the engineers went to ground.

The readout entrance would be done by dawn and the holo emeter would be in place by then. By the end, it would be large enough for 6 to sleep but no bigger when finished and easy enough to safely collapse when the mission was done.

Tomorrow night was the true test she knew while she spread out her worn looking bedding on the ground in a half scattered way to make it look more used than it was. They would have to unload the beasts of burden and other things for the long journey.

For her being undercover a long time had come with the job assignments, but the others, she wondered how well they would do and how long it would take to complete the mission. This would be a challenge in ways none could foresee.
