>Prayers: Be answered...... with a firm "No".
It appears that God does not, in fact, love you. The thing outside seems very capable of speaking, a trait reserved either for the moderately clever or the legitimately sapient.
Well even if it IS intelligent it doesn't seem to be investigating this room at least for now. Maybe it thinks you ran further down the hallway instead of coming in here. It walks down the hallway, moaning in pain and uttering odd phrases to itself. From what you can tell, whatever it's saying it doesn't have anything to do with you.
You think you'll give it a few minutes before you run the exact opposite direction though. Just to make sure you're in the clear before you make your getaway.
>CG?: Investigate the surroundings you find yourself hiding within.
You appear to have stumbled into some sort of storage closet. You only managed to get inside because you remembered that your pants happen to have pockets.
Checking those pockets you found a maintenance keycard which let you into this locked room. Thank the stars for critical thinking skills.
The room itself seems to be host to various cabinets and a swath of miscellaneous cleaning supplies. Nothing that immediately stands out to you though, like a gun or something.
>CG?: Rifle through cabinets with wild abandon.
You set upon the course of action that would be obvious to anyone in your situation and begin checking through the cabinets in search of useful tools and artifacts. Most of the stuff here are minor replacement parts and unweaponizable tools, none of which would be particularly useful to you at this juncture.
Just when you are about to give up the search, however, you stumble upon a somewhat interesting find.
>CG?: Open up interesting find.
It seems to be a MOBILE TV.
Within the box you find the namesake item alongside a headset to listen to the device with. Maybe you could get a signal out here and find out what's going on.
You go ahead and take a seat while setting the TV up on top of the box. Not the most comfy seating arrangement, but you aren't really going to complain in your situation.
You switch the TV on and set it to the first news channel you find.
>CG?: Watch the news.
ANCHOR: -ecent reports continue to stream in as the hours tick by, though sources indicate there is still a lot we don't know yet about the situation.
ANCHOR: Sources say that although the asteroid was successfully hit with the counter-measure warheads put in place by the US, Russia, and China, various meteorite fragments continue to rain down globally.
ANCHOR: While reports say that potential damage has been significantly lessened, astronomers remain baffled as to how we failed to see the asteroid so close to the earth.
ANCHOR: Sources continue to report that NASA has still not yet given a statement as to how this transpired.
ANCHOR: At any rate, governments globally continue to caution those travelling outside as the various meteorite fragments continue to rain down very sporadically.
ANCHOR: Scientists warn that these variations are very uncharacteristically erratic, especially those of the larger meteorites.
ANCHOR: That's all the time we have for this update for now and we will return when more information is available as this story develops.
ANCHOR: Now we return to our second breaking news story within the last 24 hours regarding the radio silence of multiple small cities in the US and Europe.
ANCHOR: Reports from government officials remain vague on the current situation.
ANCHOR: Military responses have been sent out to multiple townships and even one small city in the US alone but none are venturing answers for reporters at this time.
ANCHOR: Speculation on the situation remains sparse, with theories ranging from coordinated terrorist efforts to spontaneous radio phenomenon interfering with communication lines.
ANCHOR: The prevailing theory seems to be the former one, though that hasn't stopped some from providing various oddball answers to the situation.
ANCHOR: Some claim that various cultist factions, particularly those of the Twin Devil Brother factions or the Apocrypha Harbingers, both which have been known to have violent tendencies in the past, may be responsible for the sudden drops in communication.
ANCHOR: Others speculate that the recent meteorite landings have coincided with the loss of communications with these localities, though at this juncture we remain unable to verify these claims.
ANCHOR: Though these both remain popular theories at this time it is important to maintain healthy levels of skepticism, especially tensions being so high with the recent near disaster we experienced with the LK-616F8 asteroid earlier yesterday night.
ANCHOR: We urge our viewers at home to take a minute to take a moment's breath so that everything that's been happening recently can be adjusted to.
ANCHOR: We remain with you in these crises and will continue to do our best reporting on these world events and ones like them to keep you updated.
ANCHOR: LLC News will return after these sponsored messages.
