Shit…” Rhea snapped in surprise as the piercing wail broke into her deep concentration.

She tried to ignore the urgent warning, reminding herself that it wasn’t as if it was a new noise; in fact it was far too common. ‘They know, they must know?’ she muttered to herself. Why else were the attacks becoming more; becoming almost a constant assault on the facility? Had a spy; an agent warned the Corporation that they… that she had…

The door to the laboratory was flung open by a young security guard. “Professor…” He said urgently. “…The alarm?”

I know I know.” Rhea almost shouted, immediately regretting her harsh response. “Tolbeck. I know,” she said in a softer tone “But I must finish…”

The man was unmoved. “No professor: you must go to the shelter: immediately.”

She looked at him; he hardly seemed old enough to be out of college, but that was normal these days with all the men in active conflict. “I will… Soon, I promise,” she tried to smile. “The work is vital to the Alliance. I must get the report onto the shuttle to Terran; I must finish... I will come as soon as I can?”
