Green Worlds

        After ten minutes of pitch darkness, amber emergency lighting glowed into sullen life.

Internal comms were dead too. That meant a trek through the Hammercross’s cluttered living space so he could complain to Admin, or at least explain why he wasn’t getting his assigned tasks done.

        The trip gave him plenty more to worry about. The main corridor, once a gleaming wonder of polished metal and information screens, was a slum now. All the walls had been opened up.

Elsewhere, gaps were covered over with cloth awnings and families lived in the cramped spaces behind. No matter how many people the Colonel shipped down to the world below, there were always too many scraping a living in the Hammercross’s deteriorating spaces.

For a moment he sat there in the dark, listening. The hum of the ventilators was still audible. The blackout hadn’t cut off his air.
