The Price Of Solitary

Chapter 9

Hello, Readers! This is the last Chapter for this great installment! I know, disappointing, isn't it? Anyway, here it is!

"Is he ok?" Samara asked Dr. Chakwas as she stood from her seat in the mess hall.

"Yes, he is, Samara," Karin told her.

She sighed a relief, "May I see him?"

The Doctor nodded, "He's asked for you," then she stepped to the side.

Samara nodded back, "Thank you," then she walked past Karin and into the room.

Steven looked over and smiled, Samara closed the distance between them. She smiled back.

"How are you, Steven?" She asked.

"Back still hurts, but I'll make it," he replied.

Samara nodded, then moved to sit beside him. Their hands found each other.

"Tired?" He asked.

"Yes," she answered.

"I figured so," Steven said with a grin.

"What are we to do now?" She asked.

"I think I'm going to turn the Normandy over to the Alliance," Steven said to her.

She nodded.

"I'm guessing you're going to return to Asari Space, bringing Justice?" He asked.

She smiled at him, "You read my mind."

He chuckled, "It's not hard to figure out a Justicar's mind."

She moved her fingers about in response.

Then, Steven thought about something. Something he hasn't said in a very long time.

"Samara, I have not said this in a long time, but, I love you," came his mind's talking as he looked at her.

She looked at him in amazement? Her expression was of one he hasn't seen before.

She let out a heavy breath, "You do not know how great that makes me feel," she said as she gave another smile.

He smiled back, "You make me feel even better."

She gave a quiet chuckle as both of them shredded distance between, and their lips sealed.

I probably should have added this to the end of Chapter 8...

Welp, That's it for this one! Thanks for Reading, & leave a review, please!

I have a good feeling this one will not continue on to ME3. I have too many stories on hold, and I probably won't be able to get around to it.

I have one more story to finish for the Mass Effect category, then I will write a couple of Skyrim Fanfics! As well as for those who are following this story, and read 'The Only Family', I am going to continue that one! Well, I might write one more for Mass Effect, I've had this idea going around my head for awhile...

I thank 'Brandon66' for requesting, and allowing me to write 'The Price Of Solitary'! And to those who has contributed their support!
