He’s doing this on purpose, Shepard thought when Kaidan walked in from outside with his shirt in his hand. Jesus—it was one time!
Admittedly, that one time had been her lingering in the doorway while he exercised in the backyard, his olive skin a perfect picture of glistening sweat and rippling muscles. He’d given no indication that he saw her, so she’d stood there for a moment or two—or three or five—enjoying the sight. When he’d looked up, she’d turned her obviously flushed face away. But at least she had the decency to keep her mouth shut. Small blessings, right?
Now he was just torturing her. This had to have been the fifth time he’d walked in shirtless in as many days. And he lingered around her too!
She wouldn’t let him win.
Shepard looked away from him and pointedly stared at the television she’d been watching before he came in. Kaidan pointedly moved closer and stood just inside her periphery.
“Whatcha watching?” he asked with a casual voice. Whatever had been on TV was currently interrupted by commercials, so it was an earnest enough question.
“Uh—” she started. Shit, I forget—how can I forget—it was just on a moment ago. “Uh,” she started again, “I’m not…sure,” she finished weakly.
He laughed. “You’re not sure?”
“I wasn’t really paying attention,” she mumbled, stealing a glance at him. He was grinning. A wolf’s grin. A triumphant grin.
Fucker, she thought.
“Wanna beer?” he asked, interrupting her thoughts. And her gaze.
“Uh,” she said and looked back at the TV with its still running commercials. “Yeah, sure.”
He left the room, shirt still in hand and grin still on face. “And feel free to put your shirt back on whenever!” she called after him.
“You love it!” he called back.
Whatever this was, just roommates or something else, she was losing the game they were playing.
I’ll have to step it up next time, she thought and scowled.

The main reason why using galaxy map in Mass Effect takes much longer than it should.
Amelise Shepard is an Infiltrator which means she can be kind of dangerous to date sometimes.
