Sam Traynor whistled when she saw the Commander. “Ya look good, Shepard.” Liam fixed one of the cuff links. “Yeah, well big date tonight, so will you do me a favor and not let anyone call me? Send everything to Kaidan and Jayce, please?” Sam nodded as the Commander headed back to the elevator.
Liam poked his head out of the elevator on deck three. “Alright, Daddy is going out don’t burn the house down,” he teased his sister before riding the elevator to deck five. “Wow! Loco!” James clapped Liam on the back. “Taken him out somewhere?” Liam smiled patting the younger man on the back. “If he can pull himself away from work long enough, yeah.”
“You’ve got it all wrong; I can pull myself away from work just fine.” Steve stated, not having looked away from the screen he was working on, “The problem is getting it to stop sinking its teeth in me and not letting me go.”
[ As much as someone might not expect it, down below was one of the Commander’s preferred haunts. Something about it just naturally gravitated Shepard toward it, but he wasn’t complaining. There were guns and mods, and even good company if he caught the crew at the right moment. Giving up, he set the gun down on the table with a sigh. Biotics and tech were his thing anyway— not shooting. ]
Cortez, are y’still workin’ on that damn shuttle?
[Steve looked over his shoulder, not minding even remotely the sparks that flew by his head as he did so. He was always making conversation with someone while working and hadn’t managed to hurt himself. The day when he got something in is his is the day when he’d worry about it.]
As long as I’m going to be carrying the best chance the galaxy has at winning wars in the Kodiak, I’m going to keep it in the best shape I can imagine, Commander.
Of course! I mean, you like eating sushi right?
No, of course I do. I guess I never really saw you as the type to like anything outside of big, hearty, manly meals.
“That should go without saying. The only one who probably missed you more was Liara.”
“Somehow, I doubt that,” Mark doesn’t go into detail on his response, trying to push it to the back of his mind, “Sorry. Y’know. For leavin’. Guess I should apologize t’everyone.”
“No need for an apology here. Like I said, I knew you were coming back.”
