"As long as it keeps my body intact, that's fine by me. Is this another Cerberus invention?"

Permalink

"Salarian, actually. Cost us a pretty penny to steal it from them."

Permalink

Romy smirks a little at that. "All right, fine, I'll agree with you there. Salarians keep more secrets in their pinky fingers than the entire Alliance black-ops."

The mention of it pangs at her heart a little bit. Naoki would be fine adapting to all of this. What she wouldn't give for his advice right now.

Kaidan enters from another room, his hair wet - obviously just coming from a hot shower.

"Salarians have pinky fingers?"

Permalink

"The one on the end is always the pinky, right?" 

When he comes close enough, she flicks one of his wet curls. "Couldn't even blow dry your hair. What kind of production is Cerberus running?"

Permalink

He shakes his wet hair on her. "I'm an environmentalist. No need to waste energy when there is a Romy that needs watering."

Permalink

Romy yelps and twists away. "Not on the armour, you gremlin!"

Then she winces, and touches a scar on her face.

He reaches out and brushes off some water. "How are you feeling?"

Permalink

She reaches out to him blindly, before she's able to tug him closer, to rest her head on him. 

"I don't wanna think about it."

Permalink

"Yes, well, you can not think about it in the regen chamber. Everything is ready and time is of the essence." She settles into position. "Freedoms Progress is a typical human settlement in the Terminus System. They had a small military force for protection supplemented by mechs and security drones. Average. Completely unremarkable... until the disappearance."

Right. Get to work, Shepard. Deja vu.

 “Lead the way, Lawson.” 

Permalink

She leads the way.

Permalink

Kaidan walks close to Romy. He doesn't think she's on the verge of breaking down - she's Shepard - but he's at her side for anything.

Permalink

She’s not gonna breakdown, she doesn’t do that on the job. But this is going to be a very, very long job.

 “When we get going, I wanna hear about Jas,” she says quietly, just to Kaidan. 

Permalink

He nods, keeping an eye on Athena.

"It's... not good. After?"

Permalink

“Is she safe at least?”

Permalink

"Safe as someone like us can be."

Permalink

"That isn't reassuring, K."

Permalink

"Last I heard she was on Earth. So in a safer place than us."

Permalink

"I suppose anywhere is safer than the Terminus." Romy scratches at her face. "Hale's with her?"

Permalink

"No idea. Hale's hard to put an eye on in the best of times."

Permalink

"God, ain't that the truth. Though you could usually find one by finding the other."
