For Endmaster's Manifest Destiny contest.
The following is a depiction of true events which took place between July and September, 2262, verified as fact by the Luna-Mars United Archival Project.
(The finished version will contain two more paths and be more than twice as long, watch for it after the contest is judge. Note that this happens after major past events in the main character's life and it's meant that some of it will need to be pieced together. This is the first story in a "series" but chronologically one of the last.)
