Something beeped in Scarlett's coat pocket. Interested, she quickly dashed into a dark alleyway in No Man's Landing and slid out the communication device.
Hello, Resistance workers, this is RobotMay3. I know where Ariella Newheart is. If you want to know, come to these coordinates. RobotMay3, out.
Scarlett squinted her eyes. Ariella Newheart? I haven't seen in her in ages! But why would one of May's robots be tracking her?... Could there be something wrong?
Starting to get worried, Scarlett pressed the coordinates attached to the robot's message. She knew that place. It led to a dock in No Man's Landing. She smiled. Not that far off!
Stealthy as a cat, Scarlett made her way to the docks without alerting any automatons. Then she spotted the robot, waiting patiently nearby, fiddling with some sort of gadget on it's arm. She dashed over.
"Ah, I knew someone would come. Greetings." It said. Scarlett nodded in acknowledgement. "I understand you have the location of Ariella Newheart," she whispered lowly, keeping her eye on the nearby guards. "Is there a reason of why that was important? Is she in some kind of trouble?"
RobotMay3 shook her head. "I'm afraid so. It's her mind. She's stayed in the fog too long- it's obvious. She thinks she has to somehow make it up to the-" it stopped, looking around cautiously, "the Scarlet Man, for something. I'm not sure what, but she's on her way here right now. I gave her my Jetpack."
"Wait, if you gave Ariella your jetpack, how did you get here so quick?" Scarlett questioned, raising an eyebrow.
The robot winked. "I have my ways," it said mischeiviously.
Scarlett ignored it. What concerned her was Ariella. She sighed deep in compassion for the girl. She herself had been in that same place at one time- she had thought that after what she did for the Empire, the Scarlet Man would never forgive her, and she felt as if she had to make it up to him. But she didn't have too- he had reassured her that he had already forgiven her, and that he loved her, so, so much....
She had to get to Ariella, and fast, before she did something she would regret.
Sorry, this is my first time doing one of these!!!
