 "You really didn't have to come down here you know. I'm just making sure they've laid out the wires properly before they bring in the servers. Honestly, I'm a bit insulted they sent you along with me at all. I don't need a babysitter to set up new servers," Q tutted.

They were currently deep within a cave that sat beneath one of Six's many international outposts. A tiny little military base in the middle of nowhere, which was about to become one of four new data centres, to be used for backup should there be another disaster at HQ. Bond was here as his escort, an unnecessary security measure, in Q's opinion.

"You know why they sent me, Q. You're the agency's most valuable asset. Can't have you getting into trouble," Bond said, standing back to let Q work. MI6 had put a lot of work int the cave, setting up circulating fans to keep the servers cool, though the cave was an excellent spot the way it was.

Bond gave a nod and moved to follow Q out the exit, but as they crossed the cool, dry expanse there was a rumble and a crack and the cave roof before them came down, just on the other side of one of the fans.

"Oh, bloody hell...tell me there's a back door," he said.

Bond looked at him in disbelief, then tilted his chin.

"The electricians? Q, they can't do this. At best they'll go back to town and raise the alert. But some of this rubble is...it's not going to be easy to move."

"We're going to have to either try to move these rocks...or we can go deeper into the cave and see if there's another way out," Bond said. "Even a small opening. Perhaps a bat egress..." he said, turning to look into the darker recesses of the cave.

Bond pulled out his mobile but of course there was no signal underground. He sighed and looked at Q.

"Or we could split up. I can go look and you can stay here in case a rescue crew gets through. I'd rather we stuck together though."

"There's bound to be water deeper in. This is limestone, not granite. There ought to be water," he said, hoping they wouldn't be blocked off by some great underground aquifer blocking the way.

"It won't get much colder than this," Bond assured him. "What I'm worried about is light. My mobile's charged up, but the flashlight drains it so fast."

"All right. Then let's get to it," Bond said, leading the way into the dark. As they passed from the twilight shadows where the installed lights were shining into the darkness. He opened the app and the mobile lit the way...somewhat.

"What would anyone want with quartz?" Bond asked. Gold, silver, even copper he could understand, but quartz was nothing he would normally think of.

Bond made a small sound, a little grunt of acknowledgement, but he clearly could care less about amethyst or mining. He walked away from the cave wall and pressed into the dark.

"Come along," he said, as if Q was really foing to let him get far in the darkness.

"It sounds like it," he agreed, slowing a bit. The sound grew slowly louder until Bond's flashlight hit the surface of a pool that rippled with each slow drop.

"That will keep us alive," Bond said, though he didn't relish the thought of mineral pools.

Bond paused and then pointed. "This fork will take us parallel to the mountainside," he said. "If we're going to get out, we'll find it down here."
