The nurses’ room looked like a hurricane had hit it. At least three mugs were in shards on the floor, and the table had moved from the place where I had seen it last. A pile of electronic clipboards lay on the floor in a puddle of coffee – the coffee maker was on top of them.
Two scared looking nurses were standing with their backs against the wall.
“An earthquake?” the taller one said with a shaky voice. "Is it possible?"
“Yes, it must have been,” the shorter one did not sound convinced either.
I found the explanation interesting, as we were on a plate – a big ball divided into two by a horizontal plane. On the lower part was all the technology necessary to keep nature alive and produce heat and oxygen, which filled the upper part of the ball. And in the middle was the disk-shaped Plate on which our society lived. So, there were no tectonic plates that could have caused an earthquake. And I had never heard that the machinery keeping the living conditions stable would have caused so much as a tremor.
