Kaidan hated waiting. He especially despised cooling his heels in Udina’s office while he waited to the Councilors finished up their meeting when there was work to be done. ‘About time,’ he thought to himself when he heard the door slide open.
“Oh, Kaidan, hey. So this is where you disappeared to,” Shepard said, stopping in her tracks just inside the door. He saw her lick her lips before she closed the distance to stand next to him, looking out over the balcony.
“Yeah,” he said simply, with a casual lift of his shoulder.
“How are you feeling,” she asked softly, placing her hand over his arm, glancing up at him with a warm smile.
“I’m much better,” he said gruffly. He saw the slight lift of her eyebrows at his tone. He frowned; there wasn’t any need for him to make an ass of himself with her. “Better now that you are here,” he said, shifting gears and turning to face her.
