March 16th, 2552 Hurry up and Wait
Tow Truck Driver/Lab Rat/mechanic’s apprentice/ – Katherine ‘ConV’ James Reporting
Today, a squadron from the Valkyrie’s View was supposed to return and guide the rest of us in. I’d spent the morning, being poked prodded and tested in the hopes that I’d be allowed to go, but no dice.
Nobody showed up from the Valkyrie or from the Memory. No word, nothing, and of course, any visuals we have are 2 days old.
All I can say is, I don’t like waiting, but with the rest of the fleet on edge, nobody cares what the mechanic’s apprentice wants to know. I just have to wait along with everyone else.
The doctors didn’t so much release me as forget about me. So I suited up and finished up the work Cookie, Mac and I had mapped out.
When the squadron arrives, I want to make sure we’re ready. I refuse to say ‘If’
