Ancient Wyrm Kittensnake
Mel calls back to Mike, "Becca and I are fine for the moment. What in blazes is happening up there? It feels like someone else is trying to drill in and not being delicate about it.""Gooorramm," Mike said, as he fought the tubulence, watching the destruction. "Is everyone alright there?" Mike asked over the comms. "V? Mel? Anyone?"
Mel says calmly to Becca, "Get a hold of yourself. The suit's resistance isn't tapped out yet. But, yes, we don't want to spend any more time down here than we want to. But we still need to find a cure for those hands who are dying. And think about what's likely to happen if we blow this place up--we'll just spread the radiation far and wide.""Cap'n…" Becca did a double-take inside her rad suit helmet as she spied his badge; she tapped his. "We need to go. Can't we just blow this place up or somethin'?" She sounded definitely scared, not a tone that was usual for her.
Mel calls to Dec, as much to reassure Becca as anything else, "Checking in. So far, we've found another empty chamber. Any luck on your end?"
