White light tumbled in at the Plaza's far end through an archway to the Spine. Emma continued through the Spine, only vaguely aware of the throbbing equipment around her.
To her right another airlock stood open. Emma was shivering violently now and pulled the door closed behind her to shut out the cold. This was in the north habitat module where Daan and Melina were pulling on survival suits.
"Yin and Yang are suiting up in the airlock while it pumps down, and they've called the construction bots." Ruby stepped into the habitat.
She caught sight of Emma.
"Did you bring the surgical kit?"
"No. Aye..." Her words slurred. Her lips and tongue felt sluggish and heavy.
"Idiot." Ruby pushed past her.
Emma staggered to the table where Daan and Melina were halfway into their suits. She suddenly felt sick. If she tilted her head, it was like she was falling end over end.
Her friends were in trouble and the best she could do was clench her jaw and not puke on the table.
"Hey, just sit still," Daan paused to help her into a chair.
"You can't fight gravity."
