Hearts Over Minds

Chapter 1 - Someone to Meet

Hey guys! Here's the idea I've been talking about! It's a pairing of Jentha, The Blue Suns Commander, and The Great Commander Shepard! I think you'll like the way I get them together!

I found her unique, because of her hair, (As many people would agree on,) And I hope you like it!

Enough of my babbling, here's the beginning!

"Finally, They sent us people who looks like they can actually fight," A Batarian said as three heavily armed persons exited the skycar that just landed.

"Yep, That's us," said the leader of the group.

"Did they tell you what we're up against?" The Batarian asked.

"Enough to know what's going on," replied the leader.

The Alien nodded, "Find Cathka, he'll brief you on the plan we are to yet execute."

The Leader of the group nodded back, "Got it,"

The Batarian stepped to the side to allow the trio to pass.

"Sounds like a suicide run to me," said the colored soldier at the Leader's side.

"Maybe, but at least we'll get to kick some merc ass when we get to Archangel, right, Jacob?" The leader told him.

The soldier chuckled, "You got me interested, Commander."

"Just the way it should," The leader replied with a grin.

"How are we going to get out when we do get to him?" Asked the second-in-command, Miranda.

"Like I said, kick ass and take names," the leader told her.

"Sorry, I wasn't listening, Commander Wallace," apologized Miranda.

"It's Shepard, ain't it? Or did that change when I wasn't looking?" Wallace asked with another grin.

She shook her head, flashing a quick grin.

They navigated through the halls, stopping by the Eclipse Mech room as well, hacking a heavy mech's targeting. When they were done, they made their way through to the street.

"Commander, The Blue Suns Commander is in that room on the other side, you can speak with him for information about the attack." Came a comm from EDI.

"Alright, Thanks EDI, I'll check it out," Wallace said as he turned to his comrades, "go ahead and look for ways to hinder the resistance here. I'm going to go see what I can dig up."

Both Cerberus operatives nodded.

"Roger," replied Jacob.

"Got it," Miranda said as well.

They parted ways, Wallace made sure to dodge the shots being fired from Archangel as he moved past a barricade, then moved down to a door after a blue suns merc went in. The door opened, and he walked in, he got eyed at by two Mercs by the door. He went his way down the hallway about halfway to another door on the right. He walked in to see a meeting room of blue suns.

"Tell Cathka to get that gunship running! I'm going to need it!" Shouted a Batarian who seems to be the leader.

Wallace stepped into the room, he barely got two-thirds of a way in before;

"Someone deal with this freelancer! I don't have time for this shit!" Again, shouted the leader.

"Wow, what a nice, warm welcome," thought Wallace.

"Hey," came a voice from the left.

He turned to the side to see a really pretty girl of a Merc. Her hair was what caught his eye. She motioned for him to step outside.

"Sorry about that. Tarak is pissed, and I hope you understand why he's acting the way he is, I'm Jentha," she told him after the doors closed with a smile.

"Hey, Jentha, and I understand, what did Archangel do to get him that point?" Wallace asked.

"Nearly killed him in his home, I'm pissed at Archangel, but I'm more pissed at Tarak. For the way he's been treating me lately. Even before the attempt on his life," she told him.

He nodded, "But why is a beautiful, yet deadly girl like you doing in this Hellhole?" He asked.

She smiled at him for the compliment, "The Blue Suns has been my entire life, and I earned my place as a Commander..." She said as her smile faded away, looking at the ground to the side.

He put a hand on her shoulder, "I'm sure you did, Jentha, you believed in yourself, and look where it got you," he told her with a smile.

She looked up to see his smile, and did the same.

"You're a strong woman, Commander, don't let anyone tell you otherwise," Wallace said.

She nodded, "Thanks," she replied as the smile grew slightly bigger.

He patted her on the shoulder, "Alright, I've got to go, my team's waiting on me."

"Wait, what are you doing?" Jentha asked.

"I'm part of this infiltration team to go in after Archangel," he told her, "Why?"

"I was wondering...If we both survive this, can we meet up sometime?" She asked, wrapping her hands around each other.

Wallace nodded, "Sure."

"What is your name?" Came a question.

He paused, "Uh..." He thought, it probably wouldn't hurt.

"Wallace Shepard," he answered her.

Her eyes went wide, "Wait, THE Shepard?"

"Yes," he replied.

"But...what did Archangel do to you?" She asked.

"Nothing," Wallace told her before turning around, and leaving to catch up with the rest of the team.

She looked after him in confusion, if Archangel didn't do anything to Wallace, then...

Her eyes widened again after a revelation. Wallace was here to get Archangel out! That meant death for everybody that opposed him...

She wondered what to do...

Wallace frowned to himself while he walked away from Jentha. He knew she was going to be part of the force attacking them when they reach Archangel, and he didn't want to kill her in the event. Maybe, just maybe, he might have something that'll work...

And there's the first chapter!

Did I overdo it? I think I did. Did I? Nevermind.

I hope you enjoyed this one! Thanks for reading, and please, leave a review!
