"Are you ready, Malia?"

> If so, push the bike outside, practice riding around first before we leave and head in the direction we came from.
Don't go to the shore yet.

"Fine."

> join in on the bike ride. Out of curiosity, try interfacing with the bike to see if it's sentient.

"...Desiree was, clearing out infestation in the tunnels.
I, had thought that the meatblob was too unstable for any offshoots to survive. I saw them, melting, when we actually met up with it, just feet away from the main body.
But, they're stable. At least stable enough to persist. And, possibly regrow.
Eigla. What, what if this is pointless. What if it's set up safeguards, and contingencies. Seeds that will regrow a new blob, if the main one does not succeed.
...what if this never ends."

"Do you remember how quickly the meatblob consumed the wolves?

I think the fact that Desuri and her workers are able to even handle the meatblob buds is enough proof that they're significantly weaker than the meatblob. If ordinary zombies can safely handle and dispose of the buds, then we should be fine once the main meatblob is destroyed.

There will be a lot of cleanup, and we should still remain cautious, but I don't think the buds are capable of any growth if they're being actively hunted and destroyed."

"But... it has, both of us. Plus Big Red. And, who knows what else.
What if it's smart. What if it hid buds. Away from people. Set them to grow up on a delay. In a month, or a year. And the buds then gain mass and strength.
We can't burn the whole world just to be safe."

"If you're always looking through your scope, you won't see the enemy twenty meters away sneaking up on you.

There are a lot of 'what ifs' that can happen. Some of them will happen. But if we're constantly fixated on those, we'll die before we even get there because we weren't focused on the task at hand."

"...you're right. We can, only go one step at a time.
Even if it does come back, doing nothing now will still leave us with our problems.
Ok."

EVENTS:

After assuaging Rosa's fears, Eigla returns to Malia and the bike. Time to hit the road.

Molly: "Have a nice ride!~"


_____________________________________


The howling winds buffet the girls' faces as they drive laps around the Rig's base. The zombike's (motorzombie's?) jerky arm motions make for quite a bumpy ride, but it is surprisingly fast, and able to get over obstructions with little effort. Eigla theorises they COULD maybe climb up vertical surfaces with it, though hanging on to the seat would be quite an ordeal.

Probing the motorbike's mind, Malia senses... Scraps, of consciousness. Vague memories of lonely treks through the countryside, watching the waves break against grey beaches. Camps and books and warm soup. Very little remains, most having been replaced with control patterns for the driver, but there's still a very definite enjoyment being gained from the sense of speed.




_____________________________________


Back at the lab, things seem to have died down a bit. Molly hums happily as she grows her newly-acquired cell cultures, and everyone else stands around slightly awkwardly. It's been a long day, and the bags under their eyes are a testament to that.

"If it's all the same, I would rather not accompany you to visit Sally... I've pissed her off.

Molly, is there somewhere we could decamp to while we wait for Eigla and Malia?"
