This chapter is dedicated to Sanctias character Claire. Its the story behind her, Garrus and Michael.)
It was almost 4 years ago, the night before the collector base attack. Michael and Garrus where in the main battery room, discussing guns, strategy and women.
"Tali and I are headed to the hold later. you manage to get a date?"
Michael asked Garrus. He knew he was with no-one, but who knows.
Garrus chuckled. Michael smiled
"have fun with that. Shes got an ass that makes any one salute."
they both lauhged loudly. Michael headed off to see Tali. Garrus grabbed the wine and headed up to Shepards.
after about 2 hours Micheal was walking around the Normandy when he spots Garrus, he desided to suprise quiz him on his sex. When he walked into Claires room. Garrus had no reason to lie about bedding Shep...So, why was he in Claires room? Micheal walked in behind him, he was pretty stealthy for a big dude.
"Hey there Garrus."
Claire said walking over to him
"Claire, Im sorry Im with Shepard...We cant be together."
she laughed. Michael was confused.
"We could all be dead in an hour. It hardly matters."
Garrus looked like he was torn. Michael hoped he would say No.
"I suppose...your right."
She kissed him. Michael watched as his best friend cheated on his girlfriend.
he had never liked Claire, there was something about her that made him...uneasy. know he knew what. She was the kind of person that liked to get her way no matter the cost. Garrus could have been very happy with Shepard. But know she had made him make quite possibly the biggest mistake of his life. After they had finished, Garrus left and Michael stepped out of the shadows.
"Fuck me Mikey...you scared me."
Claire said. she was fully dressed.
"I think Garrus beat me to it."
he said. She looked at him.
"you saw that..?"
"Every. Little. Moment. Ive even got it on vid."
She looked at him.
"but im not going to show Shep. She needs to trust you today. And as you said, we could be dead tomorrow."
she looked at him
"Im not saying i wont show it to her at all. im just gonna wait and see what Garrus dose. Was it a fling or a bad decision. Or maybe he loves you and not Shep. Either way."
he left. She stood there.
she punched the wall. Michael had headed to engineering and had turned the tunes up. (link1) Tali didnt ask any questions. If he wanted to talk about it he would. she walked over to him and gave him a hug.
"you know where i am"
he nodded. Picking up his gun and checking it over.
Shepard sent Claire back with the crew. Michael was kinda happy to see her go. Garrus didnt do anything.
(thats it. Thanks!)
