 :D (Big Grin) Wink/Razz The Chronicles of LiaraHug Huggle! Nod Bookdiva Reading 

"Your tea has been cold for a long time," Feron shook his head disapprovingly. "I brewed it an hour ago, and you did not even touch it."
       Oh, I got carried away, - distracted from the work of Liar and wearily rubbed the bridge of the nose.
      Since the archives of the shadow broker came to her, she simply could not tear herself away from them. Sometimes she even forgot to eat, not to mention the fact that she often fell asleep right in front of the monitors. She always liked to dig into something, painstakingly fishing something useful and interesting. Previously, at the excavations, she discovered many of the secrets of ancient civilization, she now found secrets among the zettabytes of information. Perhaps she will even be able to learn about the Reapers what Shepard will help.
      You need more rest, - Feiron's voice sounded excitedly, - and even though sometimes there is.
       I can not, I still have so much to learn. "Liara quickly glanced at him and returned to the monitor.
      Information will not go anywhere.
     You yourself know that Reapers are much closer than everyone thinks. I need to know if there are anything in the archives that could be useful to Shepard.
   Well, of course ... Shepard, "Feron said discontentedly, but Liara was too tired to focus on this. "A couple of hours will not change anything." Maybe we'll have dinner okay, but not on the go?
      I'm not hungry, "she answered, not taking her eyes off the tables on the screen.
      Feron sighed heavily and headed for the door. Before turning out, he turned round:
       If you need help or something, call me.
      Of course, - all also not looking at him, Liara nodded.
      She appreciated the care of Feron, but sometimes he was too intrusive. And, of course, some of his very unambiguous hints made him feel uncomfortable. Liara immediately indicated the boundaries in their relations, but he, it seems, still hoped for something. And even with Shepard sometimes it was impossible to even contact, let alone a personal meeting, Liara did not cease to love her. Never.
      As soon as she thought about Shepard, there was a sudden melancholy. They did not see, it seemed, for an eternity, even by the standards of the asari. A few months ago they beat off the base of the shadow broker, and since then Shepard did not have time for visits not related to her mission. Perhaps, without realizing it, Liara was buried in the work, in order to think less about how she misses her. For two years she considered her beloved dead, learned to live without her, sought herself in a world where Commander Shepard was not. But she returned. And once Liara had regained her, she had to be let go of the unknown. Of course, she understood the need for separation, because the galaxy was in danger, and Shepard fearlessly rushed to her ahead of everyone, but it did not get any easier.
       Shaking her head to drive away unnecessary thoughts, Liara again plunged into the study of the archives. She lost track of time and was not sure how many minutes, or maybe hours, when behind the back the door servos throbbed.
     Feron, I said I was not hungry, "Liara grumbled, not looking up from the monitor.
      She expected him to leave the room, and flinched with surprise when a stone about the size of a fist landed next to her on the table.
    Well, in vain. - From a familiar voice, caressing the rumor of more beloved Azarian music, a shiver ran down my back. "I would definitely ate a couple varren."
    Shepard! - Quickly unfolding the chair, exclaimed Liara.
      She blinked a couple of times, just in case, checking that it was not a game of her imagination.
     When did you last sleep? Shepard frowned in displeasure. "In a normal bed," she added perceptively.
    And you? Liara retorted, noticing that she looked no less exhausted.
      One-one, Dr. T'Soni, "Shepard grinned and, without another word, kissed her, and then she wrapped herself in a firm embrace. "I missed you so much," she whispered.
     So do I.

 Love :D (Big Grin) Wink/Razz   The Chronicles of Liara: continuationHug Huggle! Nod Bookdiva Reading 

Liara pressed against her, trying to make up for the lack of communication, touch, tenderness for the whole time that they did not see each other. To feel strong muscles, and not to represent them in my head was especially pleasant. Liara terribly wanted to immediately pull down the form of "Cerberus" with his beloved, touch the hot body with his hand, draw the tongue over the smooth skin, studying the new scars ... From his own thoughts, his cheeks immediately blazed with embarrassment.
      What are you doing here? She pushed back a little to look Shepard in the eyes, but she did not unhook her arms tightly around her waist.
    She flew by, "she shrugged with a smile.
     Past Sovilo, aha, - Liara's eyes narrowed skeptically. - It's a very busy movement, that's why the shadow broker chose this place for his base.
    Actually, we need Omega, but I thought that Aria could wait a couple of days.
     The queen of pirates does not like to wait.
     Spit. I wanted to see
- I do not care. I wanted to see you. "Shepard gently traced Liara's cheek with her fingers, and for a split second it seemed that the burden of galactic problems did not weigh on her shoulders. But the next moment she sighed: - But I can not stay for long. I only have a couple of hours. I must see Aria, and even Hackett has something important for me.
     - What? Liara asked excitedly. - And what about the Collectors? About the Reapers ...
    "Shh-sh-sh," Shepard carefully put her finger to her lips. "Let's not talk about this now." I'll tell you everything later, I promise. In the meantime, maybe, after all, we'll eat something and just spend time together?
     Shepard gave a playful grin and bit her lip, and her hand slid beneath her waist.
     "Of course," Liara nodded, barely restraining herself from simply not closing her eyes with pleasure and not disappearing into her arms. "Come into my room."
     "With great pleasure, Dr. T'Soni."Before leaving, Shepard took the stone brought from the table.- What is it? Liara looked at him skeptically.:reading: :reading:
     "I thought it would be wrong to come to you without a present," Shepard shook her shoulder in embarrassment and looked down, almost guiltily. - I did not find the flowers - only dry sticks stick out from the ground on the Tuchanka. But after all, with Ilos you dragged all sorts of stones, so I thought that your collection would not be prevented by a part of the krogan planet.
      "He's just wonderful, Shepard." Liara, with a smile, took the stone she had washed away from the mud. - Thank you.
      She kissed her beloved on the cheek. It was the most ridiculous, but at the same time the sweetest gift in the world. He will take an honorable place on the shelf among the protean relics.
     - Commander, - suddenly appeared from around the corner, Feron made both start. - Already leaving?
  - No, I have another couple of hours. Liara and I want to spend time together. "Shepard measured him with a stern gaze and added with displeasure:" If you do not mind, of course. "
     "Why should I be against it?" "Fero answered quickly, perhaps too much.
    - I do not know.
     "I'd better go." - From the heavy look of Shepard, he was obviously nervous and hurried off, without even looking back.
     Liara did not want to darken the brief time left for them to be alone, but she simply could not close her eyes to the behavior of her lover.
     - Shepard, so what was that? She asked.
     "I do not like the way he looks at you." As if ... As if he does not want to be just a friend.
     - You do not trust me? Liara crossed her arms over her chest.
     "To you, of course," Shepard answered hesitantly, "but I do not trust him."
    "He helped get your body off Collectors."
     I know. But I'm not sure he did it for me.
     - Shepard, he almost died, and one Goddess knows that he had to go through two years in captivity! - Liara's tone rose a little, but she was able to pull herself together and continue calmly: - He is very helpful to me. And I already told you that between us there is nothing and can not be. I do not understand why you are raising this topic again.
      "I'm sorry, Liara," Shepard breathed and clasped her palm, "I'm just afraid of losing you."
     "You're going to jump into the unknown through the repeater to where no one came back." I have to worry, not you! - Liara could hardly hold back the tears that had come, it was only worth thinking about what her lover was to do. She can no longer survive her loss."I'll come back to you, I promise," Shepard whispered.

Glyph drain their data banks.

...and then lower their morale. Sweating a little... 

On a side note. Considering Barla Von is a Shadow Broker proxy on the Citadel, I wonder if Liara has some giggles when dealing with him. You know, supposedly sending important messages to SB while being perfect Dr (Professor by now???!) Liara in front of him. Giggle
