Facing off to history
Who: Annie and The Doctor
Where: Wheel 3 food court
What: The Doctor and Annie meet.
When: Annie’s third day
Open: Ask First
Annie walked out into the food court with an air of caution in her pace. Her eyes wide, ears strained to highest sensitivity and her hands loose at her sides about level with her hips. A lot of tension carried in her shoulders as her footsteps travelled and echoed around the court. When The Doctor had suggested this as a meeting point, she had assumed it would be a bustling public place because he was worried about her. Instead, her tactical readout and augmented reality overlay was telling her this was a deadly trap. Fighting her natural paranoia, she willed herself forward.
Thus far, however, everyone she had met on the station had been friendly enough upon first contact. Despite that observation none of them claimed any knowledge of SLA, the Worlds of Progress and thus probably didn’t have the same view on morals, ethics and conflict that someone who had either experienced the relative atrocities of such a place or, in her case, grown up there. The creeping tension at the base of her spine made her nervous which she couldn’t help but display the tics on her face.
She selected a table in the middle of the court that gave her the best view of a number of approaches and waited the painful passage of time for The Doctor to arrive.
