A/N: Thank you to @stilinski-jpeg for proofreading this. I am sorry for uploading this a day late, my weekend has been incredibly busy. I hope this part is worth the wait. I love you guys. Thank you for being kind and understanding.
Mitch Rapp, the man I have given myself to both physically and emotionally, is a trained killer — was the only thing running through my mind all of last night. There was no amount of counting sheep in the world that would be able to make me stop thinking about the imminent danger inside of my own home and fall asleep. My brain pounded painfully inside of my head as the tears continued to roll down my cheeks. I had already grown tired of crying at this point, but my eyes still did anyway. Whatever energy I had was drained from my body and it took all the effort I had to pull my numb self out of bed and into my bathroom. I closed the door behind me and all of the events from last night came crashing down as I stared at it.
“Well, Rosalie.” He sighed. “You’re a queen and I’m an assassin.”
Garrus observed the glass near the apartment entrance, they did a great job at setting the traps up last night. Zaeed suggested microfilaments, 5 by 5, a great idea… 12 by 12 was better, more impact that way. The man was right about the kitchen, there were a lot of vantage points that they set traps up in, no clone would–
“Please tell me you didn’t,” Garrus turned around to see Nia with a raised brow and the slightest hint of a smile on her lips.
Clearing his throat, Garrus began. “And what exactly did I not do?”
“‘What exactly did I do?’,” she mocked. “Asking me like you don’t know.”
Garrus tilted his head and watched Shepard with squinted eyes. What were all the places they booby trapped again?
Rolling her eyes, Shepard sighed and chuckled. “You two fucked with the coffee machine.”
Garrus let out a breath. “Not fucked, per say. More… improved.”
“So why was your improved coffee machine beeping a few minutes ago?”
“Waiting music?” Garrus smiled sheepishly.
“You and Zaeed are lucky I know you so well, Mister I HEART GARRUS,” she shook her head with a grin.
“In retrospect, I should’ve told you the password this morning…” he mused. “You got your coffee at least,” he pointed out the mug in her hands.
“Vakarian,” she started in a warning tone. “If I died getting my morning coffee, I would come back and haunt your ass for the rest of your life and still after that.”
“No, that worked last night but not again. You fucked with my coffee,” she cut him off.
