“You can sit over there, Mr. Shepard."
Kaidan’s head snaps up. Shepard. He knew that name. Sure enough at the nurse’s desk, there stood Shepard comfortably perched against the wall nursing what looked like a broken shoulder
"C'mon, one round of pain killers won’t hurt. I’m in a lot of pain.”
The nurse sees through his lie just as easily as Kaidan does. She merely points with authority towards the waiting room seats. Shepard makes a show of rolling his eyes before walking over to Kaidan’s seat and surprises him by plopping down beside him.
Kaidan doesn’t really know Shepard, not really. They only have one class together: Calculus 3. The only thing Kaidan has ever thought about Shepard is that he didn’t look like he belonged in Calc 3. Among other things that he didn’t want to admit to himself. In fact Kaidan didn’t even know Shepard’s name. Only that it started with a J or something like that.
Shepard is a archtype. Buzzcut, bad boy leather jacket, fuck the world attitude. It’s a type that isn’t Kaidan’s. Well, not anymore. He’s gotten over that phase in his life. Or so he’d thought. He pretends not to notice his heart rate jump when Shepard looks at him, as if he likes what he sees.
