"Hell yeah! Free food!" Joker shouts with a grin. "I’m holding you to that, kid." He turns the chair back around to focus on the ship and EDI.

Shepard finds herself lost in her memories of the brief time she and Kaidan had been able to spend together, hoping that she survived this long enough to see him again.

Gentaro stands outside the door to the Commander’s cabin, giving her ample time to herself before pressing the intercom. “Commander, I’m ready to show you what I can do.”

Shepard stands from her desk, wiping her face before moving to open the door. “All right,” she replies. “Let’s see what you’ve got. We’ve got a request to go out into the Terminus Systems to find a missing ship and her crew. Pretty routine stuff for out here. I’ll have Joker lock in the coordinates and we’ll start there.”

"Gladly." He shows his Fourze Driver. "Here’s my gear. I channel cosmic energy, but not biotics, through this. I promise you, I can help with your missions. Even though I look young, I’ve had my share of battles in space."

What are you doing under there?

"I’m helping with therapy for a former Dopant." A hand with red nail polish pokes out of the other side of the blanket fort, waving at JK. "Hi. Gentaro’s promised me some Disney movies and hot cocoa." She says.

Gentaro pokes his head out of the covers. “Want to join in?”

 

JK would shoot Gentaro a text laced with sarcasm almost two hours later. The job was done, and done well if the informant did say so himself. Two very well dressed parents were standing outside an abandoned alleyway. Of course in a more upscale neighborhood currently under construction. He remained hidden nearby, rolling his eyes as the wife ranted and raved about a giant robot blocking the roadway. Some people.

Gentaro and his friend arrive soon after, and the four of them head deeper into the alley.

It takes twenty minutes, and unfortunately requires showing the parents footage of their girl becoming the Wolf Dopant before they realize what she’s been through.

Finally, he returns, alone. “We did it. She gets to stay here. Thanks for your help, JK. Let’s go get something to eat.”

Gentaro pokes his head out of the covers. “Want to join in?”

JK shakes his head but smiles at the pair. Anything for his friends, thats how Gentaro was. “Nah, I’ve actually got plans of my own.” He pulls out his cellphone and shakes it a couple of times for emphasis. “But if you guys need anything, just shoot me a message.”

"Could I ask you to run interference?" the girl asks. "My family wants to send me to a rehab clinic overseas. I can pay you if you want. I just need someone to delay them until it’s too late for me to reach my flight."

"What did I just…I got date, lady." JK rolled his eyes. But then again. He had volunteered himself. In his defense, he had meant just bringing more snacks. The informant shrugged. "No offense, Gen. But if you’re keeping her from her parents, doesnt that make you a - y’know - kidnapper?"

"No. I’m keeping her from being sent overseas, to a group that knows nothing about Dopants or superpower addiction. Once there, she’ll most likely be treated as if her whole time as a Dopant was a fever dream, and the induction port is just a fancy tattoo. But I did tell them that she’d be with me today."

"They know that Gentaro’s a friend, and expect him to bring me to the airport in a few hours. I was hoping to avoid it, but once we’re done here, Gentaro’s going to speak up in my favor."

JK sighed before a smirk crossed his face. He looked over at Gentaro. “So…I just have to..” His grin widened. “Stop a flight from happening?” JK looked almost delighted at the thought. “Leave it to me and my network. No overseas flights for the next few hours.” Probably should just leave out all the details.

"No! No delaying flights." The girl pops out of the fort. "I was kidding! Gentaro’s got my back. I’m sure he can convince them to let me stay."

Gentaro lays aside the top layer of the fort. “JK, don’t do anything that can harm anyone, or get you in trouble with the police or SPD. Because I might be your friend, but I’m not going to stop you from getting arrested if you do something to deserve it.”

"Relax. Relax. I got this, alright?" He put up his hands in mock surrender and backed away towards the door. "Always gotta bring up the SPD. You know they havent forgiven me for the last time…" He put his hands into his pockets and turned to face the exit. "One traffic jam, coming up. And don’t question my methods.." JK pointed at Gentaro before taking his leave.

"I’d prefer not to know your methods, JK." Gentaro shakes his head and hands him a card with a license number on it. "That’s her parents’ car. Bring it to a neutral location so we can talk about their daughter’s future, all right?"

"Hello again, Persephone. would you care to join me for some baklava?"

"Sure, Gentaro. You came by at a good time. I’ve just finished my duties for the day. You know, spring goddess things."

"Isn’t Hestia the Goddess of the hearth? I bet she knows recipes that are so good, the other gods fight over who can learn them ." Three pieces of the pastry are added to the goddess’ plate. "Tell me how it tastes, please."

"Yes, that’s one of the domains my Aunt presides over. She’s also the goddess of the home and preparations of meals." Persephone informed him. "I don’t know many who would fight over her recipes per say. Most gods have people to cook for them."

Persephone quickly found a fork and finally took a bite out of one of the pastries before her. She contemplated over the taste of the baklava Gentaro made and after she was swallowed the piece, she gave him her critique.

"It’s a little dry so some more of the sauce would make this even more delicate. Other than that, it’s good. "

He nods and writes that comment down in a notebook. “Persephone says it’s dry, needs more sauce.”

"Thank you. Would you care for some tea?"

"H-how long have you been standing there?"

"4800 yens… You’re sure you can’t get the price a bit lower than that?" Luka asked, with her widest smile. "Please?"

Before the owner could respond, gentaro suggested he paid for half her donuts. Luka wasn’t the kind of person to refuse a deal like that.

"Oh, that’s so nice of you! But you really don’t have to!" She said. He didn’t have to, yes, but she still hoped he did it anyway.

"Oh, don’t worry about that, I’m aware of those kind of promotions!" The girl turned back to the owner, and gave her the first half of the package. "Thank you very much, ma’am!"

Gentaro finishes paying for the donuts and chooses a bench nearby to eat the desserts. “I’m happy to pay for half of these for you Luka. Besides, you did spend a bit on the dresses.”

"And your help is appreciated, Gen-chan~! It’s fine if I call you that, right?" The girl asked, sitting down at one of the tables with her donuts. "I think I still have enough to buy some drinks…. You want one?"

"That sounds good, Luka." He takes one of his donuts and takes a bite. "It’s been a good day, getting to know you."

"The rings of Saturn?! Try the exploding ruins of a derelict Reaper ship!" Joker replies, spinning his chair around to face the kid. Shepard smiles and shakes her head as she walks away, hearing Joker tell Gentaro of all the things he’d done during his time with the Alliance and Cerberus.

After listening to Joker’s stories for twenty minutes, Gentaro holds up a hand. “Ok, I believe all those stories except for the one about you hijacking an Atlas Mech. I’ve got buddies who pilot things like that. They’re in perfect health and piloting those things drains them in under three minutes. No way you could have done it.”

"To be fair, it wasn’t just me hijacking it," Joker admits. "EDI helped." Shepard walks over to her desk and sits in the chair for a few moments, letting her eyes wander. Her fingertips brush along the framed picture she has of Kaidan, sighing softly to herself as she wishes he could be there.

"Well, Joker, I’ve got to catch up with the Commander. But I tell you what. Send me a recipe for your favorite food, and I’ll try to cook it sometime soon. Sound good?"

"These are not all for me, though." She laughed. "One for me, one for Ahim, two for Doc, two for Gai, Joe won’t want one anyway but he’ll take a bite from one of Doc’s., and the rest is for Marvelous." She explained.

"5280 yens, uh… That’s a bit expensive. Are you sure you can’t get the price down a little bit?" Luke said, with a large smile. "Someone as pretty as you could do a little favor to poor little me, right?"

Luka wasn’t used to have to bargain for that kind of things, but she hadn’t really watched her expenses when she took the dresses, and was afraid of not having enough for everything she demanded.

"I can cut it down to 4800 yen for a package price." the owner says. 

"And I can pay for half of her doughnuts." Gentaro offers, placing the money on the counter. He then walks back to Luka. "Don’t be surprised if you get thirteen in the box. It’s a Earth tradition called ‘Baker’s Dozen’ where they add in one more for big orders."

"4800 yens… You’re sure you can’t get the price a bit lower than that?" Luka asked, with her widest smile. "Please?"
