March 6th, 2552 Waiting Game
Tow Truck Driver/Lab Rat/mechanic’s apprentice/ – Katherine ‘ConV’ James Reporting
Day one of waiting. So far, this mission seems to be a study in how long I can hold my breath. We won’t know for 2 days if they made it to VV 271.1 and then it will only be one day until the Pavane returns if she makes the landing.
I am not good at waiting. Thankfully Cookie knows this so he put me to work on a mock-up of the Pavane and I spent the day loading and unloading test equipment, first unsuited and then suited. I don’t know if the work will help me once Dancer gets back here – but I do know I’m not going to have any trouble falling asleep tonight.
Then again, I’m pretty sure that was Cookie’s plan.
