Day 2— Your favorite Mass Effect Love Interest:
Lieutenant Steve Cortez
"Well, it’s fries, with cheese curd, and a special gravy poured over them." He winced. "It doesn’t sound all that great, but assuming you don’t have a heart attack, it’s the very food of the gods."
He chuckled and shook his head. “I think I’ll have to take your word for it. I consider myself pretty open minded but… maybe not that much.”
Well, I do like round marks…
[ He scratches his chin in consideration. ]
I am the opposite of opposed.
Give me a day and this bad boy will be the most feared thing on the Normandy.
I might paint it blue, too.
"Oh, good. Thought he was just a dense person whose only redeeming quality was his looks." A wink was shot off before he looked out where Steve was pointing and his grin grew wide. "About damn time!" And with that, he easily pulled Steve over to the stand.
Steve couldn’t help but laugh at Boss’ enthusiasm. He hip checked him and moved right along him, ordering for the commando when they got the vendor’s attention.
"We’ll take a…" he looked over at Boss, "what color?"
" You got a concussion?
You got a harder head then I thought! “
James kissed back as much as he could and was very much pleased with the gentle kiss. The smile on his face turned sweet as he simply gazed into the other when they pulled away. His expression broke, however, into a smile when he heard the comment.
" Some people say I’m part Krogan.
That could be it! “
"Well, that’d definitely would explain the snoring." Steve grinned and lightly pinched James’ side.
He nodded in the direction of the stove. “You might wanna check on that.”
But just how far do we go?
That depends. Would you be opposed to adding some real fire power to it? Enough for it to be used at long range… and might leave a round mark when used at close range.
”…One being extremely annoyed?”
"One meaning I couldn’t care less. I’ve got better things to worry about than people being in disbelief over my eyes."
The smile widened as he saw the other come closer and felt his arms around his neck. In response he let his arms slink around the others waist and pull him. Although he may have pulled him too close as he suddenly felt their noses collide and a small ‘ah!' slipped from James.
Just as Steve laughed, as did James and he erupted into a small fit of giggling.
" You did that on purpose! "
"Trust me, I didn’t mean to give myself a concussion."
Once his laughter died down, he leaned in again- this time more gently- and pressed his lips to Vega’s. He pulled back sooner than he really wanted to but it was the perfect timing to say what he was thinking.
"I think your skull might be made from tank armor."
I don’t know. I don’t pretend to understand Spectre business.
