Howling winds toyed with the schools roof, whistles indicating that somewhere the building wasn’t as windproof as they first through but at least the building was still standing. Groups of people huddled in the dim light that flickered, the back up generators trying to keep up with the demand for power none distinguishable to the other as those who had to make the walk from their homes to the evacuations sites were covered in ash, most still sporting rags tied around their mouths or necks, those who were not so lucky lay coughing on the floor.

Lily moved between the people feeling the stress and tension of not being able to help simply because of the circumstances. If there were ten people or even twenty, she would be able to handle each person and stop their suffering however there were hundreds of people milling about. Some were not injured but rescue workers or those manning the relief efforts. These people would need pulmonary infusions later even though they were mostly wearing rebreathers or masks. The particulates in the air were fine enough even changing out the masks caused one to cough and hack after a few minutes.

Lily resisted the urge to look at her communicator again. She knew as science chief Duncan would be in the middle of things and would take the proper precautions but that still didn’t help or make her worry less. Pushing a loose chunk of hair from her eyes, Lily glanced about the room at the tirage system of flags scattered about. She had marked the critical and they were the first ones being taken to shuttle however that left the problem of exposing ones hurt less to more ask and lung problems. Grabbing a passing nurse she asked the same question she had asked ten minutes ago, “do we have any more masks?” The shake of the nurses head felt like a gut punch.

Letting out a sigh, Lily hated telling the people that the flimsy rags and cloth coverings would be adequate until they were evacuated. The problem was saying they were next to worthless would only incite panic. In the midst of all the confusion, panic was the last thing they needed.

In the gymnasiums corner a tent had been erected sporting the sign of cross and snake, the triage area and transporter site. Here things were less crowded with people queuing to get of the self destructing planet in an orderly fashion. Medical staff tended to the injured some of whom were suffering with ash inhalation others with bumps and bruises from failing debris and the worst with burn marks from lightening strikes and fires. In all there was a low hum of noise as people talked quietly amongst themselves.

Outside was far worst, for the most part the colonies streets were empty with only but a few stragglers now arriving from their hunkered down locations, bright lights pierced the main school yard as it was used to direct the shuttles into land, here several Malaga crew wearing respirators carried torches and waved them around all in the bid to help civilians find their way and the shuttles to land as safely as possible. At one time three shuttles could land here.

Moving outside the gym, Lily stepped into the open air. The sky from the ask seemed as dark as night or maybe it was her imagination. Lily wished she could close her eyes and reopen them to white flakes of snow instead of ash but that was not going to happen. Instantly however she saw something the made her jump back into the fray. Half walking, half running, Lily moved to the newest group of evacuees as she snapped her fingers signalling a security officer to help her. Kneeling down she took off her medical respirator and placed it over the nose of one of the kids. “Breathe deep,” she said letting out a small cough. The kid nodded coughing as she did so. Looking up at the woman escorting the group of twenty kids aged from about ten to seventeen. “Anyone hurt,” she asked the woman.

The coughing fit that let some red spittle dot the woman’s lips said more than any response.

Looking at the security officer, Lily brushed the kids hair with a gentle smile before standing up to face the man. “Okay we need to evacuate all of these people now,” she said in a low voice pulling him slightly to the side. Coughing she put a hand to her mouth feeling the burning sensation already starting to form without her mask.

“I don’t care how you do it but get it done. Right now,” she waved about, “the ash is slowly turning into concrete inside everyone’s lungs that is breathing it. Yes it can be treated but there is a point of no return for these people and we are reaching it.”

OOC: Away teams can land here safety and this would likely be a location visited by medical and security staff.

OCC: I m so sorry I am so late on this. If it is way too far from where the main sim is let me know and I will pick up where I need to. ~ Kate

OOC: No Youre good, feel free to start up and we can work this locatio in! - GM
Looking around at the chaos she did her best to assist where she could. Upon the arrival of more children she searched for some more things to breathe through to reduce ash intake. finally tearing off a piece of her uniform skirt to hand to a small girl to cover her mouth and nose with.

Ensighn Mantis [Doctor]

The girl took the small face covering but didnt seem to move away, she tugged at the doctors shirt and pointed outside from where she had clearly come from. From her tattered clothes green liquid could be seen, similiar to Vulcan blood but thicker and darker. She pointed again and ran off in the direction without looking over her shoulder to see if the doctor was following.

Lily saw the little girl and Mantis. She also saw her running. “You got her,” Lily yelled to Lenore. She nodded to Lilly and followed the girl, shouting back over her shoulder “I got her .”Clearly, the little girl wanted the doctor to follow her. Lenore was closer and made more sense to help the little girl out however if there was a problem, Lily would follow. Coughing she followed Lenore’s lead and pulled off her shirt grabbing a knife and cutting it into strips. Starfleet always had them dress in layers so the black t-shirt under her uniform shirt would have to do for now. Passing the strips out to the other people around her Lily knew it would at least filter out the largest pieces of debris floating in the area around them.

The little girl continued to a window where with the outside of her sleeve she cleaned it in a circular motion, she pointed and outside a small heap could be seen being slowly covered in ashe, it looked like a large dog. The Ashe pile moved but only briefly indicating what ever it was was still alive, if only barely.

  • GM Narwhal

Looking out the window with the girl she reached down to pat her shoulder reassuringly, hopeing Lilly would let her run out to try and rescue whtever it was.

Ensighn mantis [Doctor]

The little girl who didn’t care to wait ducked behind Mantis and ran over towards a small side door, it was marked as a fire exit and it took the young girl all her might to push it, ash blasted in as the young girl gave Mantis one last look before disappearing into the storm. The hung open for a moment before slamming close.

Mantis covered her mouth and nose best she could and hurried after the girl, grabbing her and sending her back inside before retrieving what ever it was out there covered in ash the girl so desperately had to have.

Ensighn Mantis [Doctor]

The girl made it almost ten meters before she ran into something more resilient than the ash. Reilly looked down and scooped the girl up and began hurrying towards where the school should have been, only to run into Mantis. He gestured back to the building and directed her to take the lead.

Reilly, XO

She nodded to Reilly giving him a look of then please retrieve whatever the girl is after as she hurried her back inside knowing she might sprint out again.

Ensighn Mantis [Doctor]

The young girl attempted to follow back to where she’d been captured but soon gave in, “We gotta save ‘im!” She whined looking to Mantis hoping she would do what she was unable to. They didn’t understand the dangers, they didn’t know what was happening. She thought.

Elsewhere the final few stragglers were beginning to transport up to the Malaga leaving just the little girl, Starfleet officers and the unknown creature.

  • GM Narwhal

Reilly looked at her and said “Who? Who else needs saving? Where are they?” as he began to prep her for transport.

Reilly, XO

Mantis hurriedly grabbed whatever it was buried in the ash pile hoping not to lose any fingers as they all prepared for transport. She couldnt break the little girls heart and leave whatever it was there to die.

Ensign Mantis [Doctor]

The creature was unlike anything Mantis would have seen before, the closest resemblance would be of a crab or lobster except this was much more skinner and had a harder exoskeleton, the eyes of the creature watched Mantis its life clearly and very much in the hands of the Starfleet doctor. It made no attempt to hurt or flee from Mantis and remained still in her arms,
