Figured I could write a few paragraphs. As school is hitting pretty hard, I will only throw some short paragraphs in here, and maintain this thread if I don’t forget about it.
The Sigma facility is located in deep space, within the nebula X, in the border area of the Taerian space to the Xoutorian space. Its purpose is medical assistance and treatment. What I did not know at this point: It was our main base for offensive covert operations.
I am Neo Akazuli, a simple Doctor, working at Sigma to glue the injured veterans and soldiers together.
Today is an usual day… roaming the clean white, crowded facility’s floors, I rushed from patient to patient, checking here, sewing a wound there, and occusionally using a dermal regenerator to generate damaged tissue, or such things. A doctors daily life.
Anyway there is a sense of tension in the air, as if everyone waits for something to happen… I clearly notice the tension, and do my best to calm the situation. Anyway this…feeling does not go away.
The patient I currently treat, a man named Zedd, who got injured by a energy shot in a fight, asks me something. His voice is curious, his posture relaxed, as he lays there on his bed, even as I applied a sedative using a syringe directly in the wound, he does not change his posture.
"You seem a bit nervous, Doctor Akazuli?"
I was suprised, which I do not mind to show.
"Yes, Zedd. It’s a bit the atmosphere here. A bit tensed."
Zedd frowns, his facial expression quickly changing to serious, and, suprising to me, a bit worried.
"It is, Doctor."
Before I could inquire further, my headset beeps. As I accept, I know already that’s the CMO and CO of this facility, Commander Hort. I turn around and bring some distance between me and Zedd to speak freely with my boss, and answer the call with calm, and quiet noise. I want to make sure only Hort hears what I say.
"Commander Hort, Akazuli here. What can I do…"
I get interrupted halfway by Hort.
"Neo, join me in my office. Now."
His tone seems a bit worried and hurried, that’s why I replied urgently.
"Of course, Sir, on my way."
I close the channel, and turn back to Zedd. I try to hide my suprise and worry about the strange behaviour of my commander.
"You should be good now. I will come back later, to check up again."
I leave the room with a nod.
Zedd, unaudible for me, mumbles something.
“If we both survive the upcoming hours.”
