THE GREATER GOOD
CARRO's PL: 100 (ANTISENSE) || LEO: 200,000 (NOT PRESENT)
Crop Co's workday had ended hours ago. The towering, pristine headquarters' lights had long since turned off when its dutiful employees had headed home with their jobs well done. Central City's summer night was starless, and the moon was covered my murky clouds that blended in with the rest of the sky. The only sounds remaining in the Crop Co courtyard were the chirping of crickets, and a lone set of metallic footsteps.
Carro was incapable of rest, both as a machine that had no need for sleep and as a President whose work would never be done. He could hardly remember the last time he'd laid down. His legs were tucked close to his body as he sat against the sleek walls of the building, a clipboard pressed against his knees as he scribbled away at some blueprints, flipping between one of several neatly stacked folders full of notes beside him every now and then as well. The night brought with it an odd sense of peace to Carro, a slight respite from the paranoia that gripped him. Here, it was just him, the grass and the skies, his duties, and nothing else. If he could, he'd surely be enjoying the fresh summer air as well.
There was a lot on his plate, and finishing up the prototype for the design of the ki-projector he was making for Zriracha now was just the start. After he finished up a beta design for its wiring he'd have to try and get into contact with Kayen again, create some more structure to the defense system he was working on, and that was just the start of things he had to do today. The pressing weight of what the hell to do with the Dragon Balls never stopped weighing on him... Carro sorely wished to rest one day. But he couldn't, that'd be selfish. He knew his friends were worried for him- even though they shouldn't be, he had to worry about them, not the other way around! He could never close his eyes until Earth was surely safe and sound.
The android gave a breathless sigh, momentarily taking his pen off of his papers to look up at the skies. He was very tired.
