The hallway beyond was short and ended in a flight of stairs leading up to what could only be described as a lobby of some sort. In a lot of ways it mimicked a landing pad of some kind, thanks largely in part to the lone, unobtrusive staircase that Whisper was currently occupying. To Whisper's left and right were two archways that appeared to lead into a portion of the command center that took up a majority of the cradle's top floor. However, unlike the sections of the cradle below, these quads didn't seem to be dedicated to any particular function. More than likely it was all constructed simply for the sake of efficiency, with the lobby in the middle acting as a nexus point for all of the command center's personnel.
At least that's the impression that Whisper would get, seeing as how it was as active as a New York City intersection at rush hour! Soldiers and other people in uniform of both genders and a variety of races were going back and forth, often at a jog. There was no way that the pride of the Diamond Dogs could get through there undetected. Not without a disguise or some distraction, anyway. Thankfully there was enough of a lip between the stairs and the landing that she could peek over without being spotted; but that would do her little good if someone sent a team to investigate the situation below.
"Status." Dalton's voice said, loud and clear in Whisper's ear. She could still hear the sounds of an intense firefight raging in the background, but there was something different about it. It seemed more... muffled than it had been before. Maybe they were forced to retreat back into the tree line? That must be it. After all, it would have been impossible to hold their particular position forever -- especially if enemy reinforcements had arrived between the time of her last transmission to her team and now.
