1 Love and War on Sun Apr 30, 2017 2:24 pm

First topic message reminder :

"I swear to even the Asari goddess that when I get out of here, that lizard Kandros will wish I was an exile for what I'm gonna do to him!" Quinn Talos raged as she was unceremoniously shoved into a holding cell on the operations deck. The dark haired woman paced for time, thinking it was would all be straightened out once Tann got wind of what Kandros had done. She should have known better. As far as she believed, human's still weren't exactly favourites of the other alien species. On earth Quinn had an excellent service record within the Alliance, just as most members of her family did, but she had wanted more. She wanted to explore, to see things no human ever had, which was why she signed up for a place on the Andromeda Initiative. The only problem was, she wasn't the pathfinder, and her superiors didn't believe in security personal leaving the Nexus. As well as she performed her job, the call sign 'Cutie', thanks to her unfortunate initials, meant she wasn't exactly taken seriously. Quinn was slumped on the floor with her back against the wall now, glaring at the Turian guard outside the forcefield. She had fought her hardest for the safety of everyone on the Nexus, and this was her reward; being called a traitor and about to be dumped on some godforsaken planet with the rest of the exile scum. All because Kandros feared losing what little power he had to her. The asshole can keep it, she thought bitterly.

Quinn folded her arms across her chest as she glared up at Ardwin, not that he would see it. "Promises, promises."

"Maggie?" Kandros had no idea his lover knew everything now. "Maggie... you didn't come back from your meeting with Tann... I got worried." He called through the door.

Ardwin kicked Quinn's legs out from under her and dropped down on top of her. "You'd better learn your place here. You're nothing special here. Like on Earth you are nothing but meat." 

Maggie sat with her back against the door, her oxygen mask pressed to her face. She'd cried until found herself unable to breathe. Luckily for her it kept her from the hurtful things she wanted to say.

"Nothing special, and yet you need me." Quin replied once she could breathe again.

"Maggie... please let me in, I know you're there." Kandros pleaded. "I feel foolish talking to a door... and I think your neighbour is listening..."

Maggie tried sending her sister a message. It was something she often did when she found herself unable to breathe and beginning to panic. But this time she got no answer. The comm simply beeped loudly in the deadly silence of another world. "I need no one." Ardwin hissed. 

Maggie did her best to ignore her lover's pleas, telling herself that once she was able to speak she was going to give him a piece of her mind.

Yet again Quinn thanked herself for keeping her helmet on as she slammed her head forward and into the nose of the man pinning her to the ground. That done she kicked him away from her and fled back into the slums.

Maggie would hear Kandros sigh heavily, but not the footsteps of him walking away. "What if I took you to her?" He finally asked.

Maggie looked down at her omni tool, noting that her sister didn't answer. She didnt really expect her to. She knew the younger girl hated her. This was probably the chance she needed to get away but... to be betrayed by those she trusted...
"You...can't leave..." She gasped out, pulling off her mask for a moment to answer the inter com. "We both know...that..."

Ardwin cursed under his breath but let the woman go for now. Out of spite he shot the little asari girl in the head and dumped her body in the street.

Quinn was cursing as she ran, the beep of her communicator fading in and out. Answering was out of the question until she found a place to hide herself away. Ardwin wasn't going to just let a broken nose go. It was in what seemed to be a junkyard that Quinn finally stopped for breath, wondering how she constantly got herself into these situations.

"You think I wouldn't break the rules... For you?" Kandros breathed. "Maggie... If I keep this up, everyone will know about us, and... I'm well aware that's the last thing you wanted when we started this."

Quinn was making enemies fast. Kros had loved his little asari. Discovering her death sent him into a rage. He was already calling for her death.

"I wanted?!" This was all it took to have Maggie at the door. "You are the one who said it wasn't proper!"

Quinn wasn't as reckless as people often claimed. The young woman knew when to fight, and when to hide, and right then she had crawled into a pile of old ship parts and scrap metal. If she could shield the signal, maybe she could finally answer her comm.

"You opened the door." Kandros replied with an almost boyish grin.

Maggie's heart melted at the grin and the gentle look in her lover's eyes. She stepped aside to let him in, promising to scold herself for being so weak later.

Kandros was thankful, but wise enough not to push his luck by kissing his lover right away. He knew when she was mad, even if he had a moment of reprieve. "You didn't eat lunch, did you?" He asked gently, intentionally not drawing any attention to the oxygen mask he could see.

"I spent my lunch in Tann's office and then the rest of the day in the credit office wiring money to my sister on her omni tool. The banker told me that would be safer than trying to send her a chip." She admitted. "How did it go with Kesh?"
Maggie adored Kesh. The female krogan was her closest friend besides her sister. 
Kesh, Quinn, and Maggie had been on the rescue ship that saved Kandros and his crew from the Kett. 
Maggie herself was the reason the security chief was still alive. She'd found him covered in his own blood and dying from his wounds. She had done all she could to stop the bleeding and then never left his side, speaking gentle words of comfort to him. Even when Quinn told her he was going to die she had refused to give up on him.
On the the Nexus she'd been there every day in the med lab, pushing him to get better. She had been the first to confess her feelings for him. To this day Krandros told her they were merely because she felt sorry him.

What happened with the kett was part of Kandros's dislike of Quinn. She had given him up for dead when there was more than a chance he was going to live. He still claimed it was because she wanted what little power he had.
"Oh, you know... I had to carry her home, like always." Kandros chuckled.

Maggie laughed softly, placing the mask over her mouth for a moment. "Tell me she didn't sing."

105 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 6:02 pm

"I don't know... I couldn't really hear much over my own singing." Kandros teased, lifting both Maggie and her oxygen mask up into his arms to carry her back to her bed. "You should rest, and i'll bring you something to eat."

"I'm waiting for my sister to answer me." Maggie said quietly, grabbing his arm before he could leave her. "Can you just...stay...?" She pleaded, not sure why she couldn't seem to stay mad at him in that moment.

"I'll stay... after I get you something to..." Kandros was cut off as Maggie's omni tool suddenly started beeping incessantly.

"Quinn..." Maggie's relief was evident in her voice as she held up her arm. "Tell me you're okay..."

109 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 6:33 pm

"I'm fine." Quinn assured her sister. "Are you... alone?" She asked uncertainly, knowing her sister rarely was, given how many friends she had.

110 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 6:46 pm

"No." Maggie admitted, wishing she could lie to her sister. "Kandros is here making lunch. He's a bit tipsy though..." She added gently. "Did you get the credits I sent?"

111 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 6:54 pm

There was a long pause from Quinn before she sighed heavily. "Mags... you have to get him out of there. Do not trust that turian, do you hear me?" She didn't want to go into detail, thinking it would only worry her rather sheltered elder sibling even more.

112 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 7:06 pm

"Quinn... I'm fixing this. Okay?" Maggie's eyes burned. The reminder that Kandros had betrayed her was like a stabbing pain in her ribs. "I'll have you home soon. Now did you get the credits I sent? It was everything I had but it should get you a place to live...somewhere safe."

113 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 7:19 pm

"Stop worrying about me, I can take care of myself, okay?" Quinn breathed, pausing when she thought she heard a sound nearby. "Just look after yourself, okay? Don't trust Kandros... He had someone down here watch me, they made a deal so he could keep you."

View user profile

114 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 8:03 pm

"Don't be silly, Quinn. Kandros doesn't want me like that. You know turians don't approve of human relationships." Maggie shook her head. "This is just a thing to him. Remember?"

115 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 8:22 pm

"Maggie, I'm serious!" Quinn insisted. "After everything Kandros has set in motion... I may not get the chance to speak to you for a while. There's a man here, Ardwin. He think Dad owed him something, I've managed to give him the slip, but I'll have to keep moving. Please... promise me you wont trust Kandros?"

View user profile

116 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 8:27 pm

"He knew dad? Then you'll be okay?" Maggie was starting to hurt again, panic taking over. "Did you get my credits? It was all I had...please tell me I can take care of you for once."

117 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 8:30 pm

Quinn hated to lie to her sister, but more than anything she wanted Maggie to stay on the Nexus far away from trouble. "Yeah, you took care of me, and at least I wont be alone down here if there's... and old family friend, huh?"

118 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 8:46 pm

Maggie gave her sister a weary smile. She looked relieved. "I'm so glad." She laid her head back against the pillow and closed her eyes for a moment. "Maybe you can hang on until I come get you. had my medicine on you...i don't have more...what are we going to do about that?"

119 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 8:49 pm

"Shit..." Quinn groaned, resting her head back against the piece of scrap she was leaning against. "Maggie... You know I can't come back there, and you can't come down here. You need to find someone to trust, someone like Kesh. Speak to her, and have her synthesize the vaccine for you."

120 Re: Love and War on Wed May 03, 2017 8:56 pm

Maggie didn't dare glance toward Kandros, knowing he could hear everything. He would have questions. "I'll try." She whispered. "Stay safe. I'll see you..." She wouldn't get to finish. Something grabbed Quinn by the neck and jerked her out of her hiding spot. The channel went dark.
