He turns to look at the orbiting ship, glad to see the gray hunk of metal. Several attempts at radio contact have failed. His capsule finally docks with the ship,and in his space suit he slowly makes his way past several pods. Gathering himself he see's no signs of life, an uneasy feeling slowly blooming in his stomach.
'Empty.' Was his only thought as he pulled off the suit. He makes his way to the corner room where the computer terminals rest. Noticing a large screen on the wall with Mihara's face, he presses a button and watches the video.
"Kurogane, it was so good of you to come. I need to tell you something while I still have time.I would guess by now you know about me, and if not, get Syaoran or Yasha to tell you. I'm not crazy, if it happens to youyou'll know what I mean. Just know that the only way to make it stop, in my opinion, is to destroy Solaris." Mihara paused in his video, talking off screen to someone, but the screen freezes, ending the film.
Kurogane leaves, searching for the crew that was stationed here. The man goes into a dimly lit room, he sees Syaoran in a desk chair, legs propped up onto the metal and plastic desk in fornt of him.
"Syaoran, did you hear my transmissions?" The younger male turns, slight fear shining in his eyes as he looks at the dark haired man.
"What happened to Mihara?"
"He's dead, he killed himself."
"What happened here?"
"I can't say, I'm too tired to talk about it now."
"Then where's Yasha?"
"His room, but he refuses to come out." Syaoran turns, hazel meeting garnet. "He won't let you in, I've tried."
Kurogane doesn't say anything as he turns and leaves the lounging kid. Thoughts of his friends death causing that uneasy feeling to grow a little larger. He makes it to Yasha's room, knocking calmly on the metal door, he states simply. "Let me in."
"What do you want? You're only here because of the company in charge of this damn project."
"I'm here to salvage the mission, to check this crew's mental health, and bring all of you home, now Syaoran told me about Mihara, but I want to hear your side of the story."
"The same thing will happen to you, Kurogane, and his body's in the lab, maybe she's gone now." The stoic voice was rambling and Kurogane was becoming more confused by the minute.
'She?' There were no females part of the crew."Who are you talking about" Yasha doesn't answer.
"I'll go home once I figure out what has happened and how to stop it."
Kurogane leaves after checking Mihara's body, passing Syaoran on the way. A hand grasps his arm, their eyes meet again as the male smiles at him.
"Kurogane-san, I find it's better to barricade the door when I sleep." They parted ways after the cryptic message.
