Blue Ash Crisis Chapter 4 Alpha Release
"Quite the daredevil are we Miss Apricot?" Miss Akagi's booming roar echoed inside the large empty lecture hall rattling Apricot's bones. She supposed anyone outside the hall can hear every single word. Miss Akagi's stern finger wags as a bludgeoning rod, brown eyes shift along with it.
"You are to report the current events, my dear, not become part of it." Miss Akagi stops her tongue lashing, straightening her posture adjusting her glasses with one hand while holding Apricots paper in the other. Apricot dug her nails into her thigh as the stabbing silence continued with no sign of ending. With an inhale, Miss Akagi continued "Though I must commend you for the article. It is rather thrilling." she turns her back towards Apricot walking towards her podium in the center of the lecture hall. "I would imagine it would be a work of fiction if not for that strike against you. Entering a crime scene unauthorized is a very serious charge missy." Apricot shrugged her shoulders in de

"You," a voice coughed from the dark. "You promised… why! Why has this happened!" the voice sounded as though their throat was full of liquid. It choked again wheezing as it breathed. A pile of remains rested inside of a puddle of inky black liquid.
"I warned you." said a proud male voice. The footsteps echoed in the alleyway, each step slow and deliberate. "You should have waited. You were not ready to make yourself flesh again."

The man slashes his rod at the creature bursting its body back into a puddle as it swipes through the creature's torso. "Hush, all is

“I need a great story now.” Apricot moans. The cool black synthetic wood bench chilly against her skirt. “I will get in trouble if I don’t turn in an article tomorrow.” A soggy double cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, and a fried egg, rests between her fingers. “The Bureau of education sent me a letter certified that if my grades did not improve, they will move me to the labor field and I don’t want to work in a factory the rest of my life.” she cries.

The smell of coffee from her cafe uniform battled against the surrounding salty smell of fried foods.
“Why not do one on today’s incident?” said a black-haired man who sat across from Apricot, who already dug into his burger, a

“Okay looks like we got everything set up. Let's get working with the Mantra-Tech systems check Falcon One,” said Chino Tokuma over the radio. Her fingers gently wrapped onto the neck of a narrow microphone which stuck out of a platinum metallic desk. She imagined the people above ground working inside their offices framed by large paned glass windows. A job she once held herself. Now she was a mile below a shopping center, well-dressed customers make the roulette through carousel doors. Their clicking feet brought to silence as it extended to the depths of this place. Chino taps her fingers across a gray plastic board of keys. Each press leaves a distinctly different click. She glances up at a massive screen which covers the entire wall of the dark room.
A male voice replies over the radio with just a hint of static. “Rodger that, we have, light. The ion engine appears to be operating nominally. Ready and waiting for instructions, over.”
