It was four in the afternoon and most of those that had initially fled to the Uppers for safety had left for their homes. The cafeteria was still functioning as a hospital ward, but it was only the s...erious cases that remained.
Most of those Susan had treated were already gone.
The faint smell of smoke sat in the air, a burnt tinge that threatened to lash at her nostrils if it got stronger.
Nothing had changed on the wall-screen. Smoke still billowed from a crater hidden from sight behind the crumbled remains of the embankment. To the right, the view looked surprisingly normal, with the bodies of cleaners still lying crumpled on the hillside, but the left half of the massive wall-screen appeared hellish in its fury. The ferocity with which the smoke rose, rushing up and enfolding on itself, made Susan wonder if there might be more tremors to come. Whatever happened, it wasn't finished. She struggled to think what could make so much smoke. What fire or furnace could burn with such violence without burning itself out?
