SNIP

Stepping from the shadows, Mirembe gestured her companion forward and followed suit. “It sounds like quite the plan,” a synthetic voice infected the air. If Brianna turned, she would find a sinewy, grey-eyed woman who vaguely resembled someone of Greek descent. That was.. if she could ignore the tell-tale bulge and crevice extending from the bridge of her nose to her eyebrows. With a broad grin, Mirembe meandered forward and signed, “Mirembe M’Ahar, Director of Terraforming. Am I correct to believe you’re Brianna O’Harra?” She lingered for a second before extending a hand in greeting.

Mirembe’s gaze wavered between Brianna and her constituents. “It’s clear you’ve got a lot on your plate,” there was a brief lull in her signs as she gestured to their find. “But if you’ve got a moment to spare, I’d love to discuss the future…” a smile erupted across her lips ”…or schedule a drink for when you have more time to chat.”

Brianna was so shocked to actually have the woman here in the mine that it took her a moment to process and place her hand to shake. “Yes, Brianna O’Harra. But call me Bridie, or as most around here call me, Fire Born.” She laughed lightly knowing the woman would probably be curious about the nickname. Everyone who didn’t know, was. “And I am available now, actually. We just decided a few changes and they are off to implement them.” She tossed the chunk of ore onto the ground and it rolled absently into the hole she had been reaching into. Almost as if it was rolling back to where it was plucked from. “So it’s up to you, a tour of the mine as it currently is, or a drink elsewhere? I am good either way.” She brushed her hands on her coveralls and smiled once more.

Mirembe’s eyebrows lifted in a cooly piqued fashion, but she made no effort to act on it. She assumed the story would unravel in due time. “Fire Born..” a good-natured chuckle befell her lips like a soundtrack to the ore stirring tiny pebbles in its wake “..I like it.” Nodding, Mirembe pondered Birdie’s offer. While a drink was hard to pass up, she was far more interested in the mines and their executive. M’Ahar wasn’t here to strike up a casual conversation — she was here to discuss science, development and business. “I’d be a fool to pass up a tour,” she shrugged, “so why don’t we table that drink for another time?” Mirembe grinned and waved her hand in an absent direction, stepping aside for the Fire Born to take lead.

Bree laughed. “A tour it is.” She lead them down one of the passageways. They passed a few miners now and then and eventually turned down a short corridor that bore no other people. There were lights strung and it was obvious that shoring up of the stone had been recently reinforced. “So this mine was thought played out over fifty years ago. It turns out the veins merely were broken by a shift in the ground that placed then out of alignment and deeper in the earth.” This is one of the tunnels where the veins ended. We will actually begin here,” she motioned to the wall at the end of the space, “and level everything across in a single layer. We will then begin to spiral down till we actually reach the bottom of the ore. Then we will spiral up and out. And continue till we mine what we need.”

She leaned on the wall, once more looking like she were merely entertaining company and not discussing the affairs that dictate a colony. “What do you think?” She wasn’t going to give all her ideas at once. But she was certainly going to see what this engineer had in mind in regards to the mine.

Mirembe’s gaze ventured further down the tunnel, her mind lost in reverie before Brianna dragged her back with a question. She turned to the miner, lips pursued in thought, and signed:

“I should offer you a disclaimer of sorts—“ sobriety seeped into her smile “—I have no interest meddling in your business. I understand there’s been tension in the past, and I don’t want that moving forward.” Her calloused fingers danced before her, daring to betray her contemplation. “I’m just here to discuss how our departments can mutually benefit one another.. and maybe make a friend in the process.”

“Spiel aside,” Mirembe snapped toward the mines, “colour me intrigued.”

“I don’t have much to say about the mining process,” it wasn’t her place, nor did she know enough about OED’s mines to offer an opinion, “but I wanted to touch base on environmental conditions. I’m aware my department plays a role in the construction and maintenance of the biodomes.” Mirembe considered the integrity of the rock’s reinforcements, raising her hand to check the airflow above them. She had reservations for the current preliminary and permanent biodomes; but, she didn’t endure them like the miners. So who better to ask than them? “Do you have any concerns for the current biodomes? Or thoughts on how we can help improve mining.. at least in terms of atmospheric conditions?”

Bree nodded. “I have no desire to bring up old angst or anything, either. I’m not sure what frictions were in the past. But I have no issues with you now. As to how we can help one another, that’s a good question. I am not sure on the exact nature of various domes. Right now we dome the outside of the mines merely to help with circulation of fresh air force fed into the depths so our miners can work without cumbersome environmental suits. Is it going to be possible to build larger domes over a huge open pit, as we are proposing to make, and what kinds of rescources from us or profit margin per location are you in need of to make that happen? If a spot is deep enough and profitable enough, we can actually make sattelite village like locations at the sites to have families and amenities at once they are producing enough, as well.”

The fiery redhead had grandious ideas, for the future. But right now, a dome over the top of a huge pit that would deepen in time was a lot different than a shallow dome that merely forced air thru the myriad of catacombs of most of the mining sites.
