In the Thick of it - Chapter 5In the Thick of it - Chapter 5 by Midnight-Blackened
As soon as they turned the corner just off the airlock, Shepard - still closely trailed by Joker - collided with Garrus, who was walking in the opposite direction.
"Shepard! Good! I was looking for you," he told her.
Joker felt her hand quickly slipping off his grasp, as she hurriedly tucked hers behind her back, straightening herself up to face Garrus.
Her body language screamed of someone that has been caught raiding the cookie jar.
Joker crossed his arms, shaking his head in amusement at the odd scene in front of him.
Her voice came out more business-like than she'd intended; "Yes, Garrus?"
"T'soni asked me to fetch you. She said it's regarding some intel from a contact within Asari High Command."
Shepard let out a sight, and with a hint of exasperation asked; "Can this wait?"
"It sounded like it was urgent."
"Right!" she said. "I'll go see her now."
"There's something else she mentioned..." Garrus promptly added, giving Joker a quick glance before his eyes returned to Shepard.
“Never before have so many come together--from all quarters of the galaxy. But never before have we faced an enemy such as this. The Reapers will show us no mercy. We must give them no quarter. They will terrorize our populations. We must stand fast in the face of that terror. They will advance until our last city falls, but we will not fall. We will prevail. Each of us will be defined by our actions in the coming battle. Stand fast. Stand strong. Stand together.
Shepard: How about a dip in the pool?
Garrus: You obviously haven't seen turians swim. It's a lot of flailing and splashing interrupted by occasional bouts of drowning.
