The elevator opened, and Wrex looked up to see Shepard walk through the doors. He'd heard about what happened on Virmire. She walked over to him, her face calm and serene, but he could see the anger in her, the hurt, the pain and shame of loosing one of her own. They'd always had so many great talks, about stupid things, about serious things. She'd almost put a bullet in his head back on the planet...hell, he'd nearly done the same. But he looked at her, this small, fragile human, and all the anger he'd felt melted away. He opened his mouth to speak, but there were no words. Nothing could express the loss of a comrade, of a friend. He nodded to her.
And suddenly, his arms had wrapped around her, she was so small, as small as a krogan child in his arms. He felt her chest heave as she sobbed against him.
