Shepard Family Stories - Jack

Liara stares at herself in the mirror, the silky white dress hugging her slender frame. Kaycee's voice sounds from the bedroom, "Liara, sweetie? You almost ready? The babysitter will be here soon."

Liara sighs. "Are you sure this is such a good idea?"

She hears a chuckle from behind the door. "Really? That's what you're worried about? It'll be fine. It's not like she's never been around kids before."

"That's different. They were students, not our daughters."

She hears the click of the door opening, before Kaycee's arms wrap around her, chin on Liara's shoulder. Liara's eyes close as Kaycee places a kiss gently on her neck. "Liara. I trust her."

Liara grumbles something but falls silent, grasping Kaycee's hands in hers. Shepard smiles, "By the way, you look simply gorgeous." Liara notices Kaycee's outfit for the first time. "Wait….isn't that the outfit Kasumi got you?"

Shepard nods, "It's not like I have that many dresses sweetie. You know I'm not usually one to wear them, but since this night is for us, I thought you would like it." She reaches in front of Liara, picking up a small golden cylinder. Releasing Liara from the embrace, she popped the top off the tube revealing bright crimson lipstick. After applying the finishing touch to her ensemble, she turns to Liara, "Now then let's head downstairs. She should be here any minute."

As if on cue, the doorbell rings. Shepard makes her way downstairs carefully, still not entirely comfortable in the high heels. Jack stands in the doorway, clad in a white tank top and jeans, her hands in her pockets. Kaycee smiles at the sight. "What's the matter? Is the psychotic biotic actually nervous about babysitting a couple of little girls?"

Jack glares at Shepard, invoking an even bigger grin. "Will you stop smiling you little ---"


A blue blur streaks past Shepard's waist, coming to rest in front of Jack. "How many times do I have to tell you Ayrene? The name is Jack."


Jack's face softens, a smile spreading. She kneels down, arms out, "Come here you."

Aya giggles, giving Jack a hug before rocketing off back into the house. Straightening back up, Jack turns back to Shepard. "I see she hasn't changed. Still a bundle of energy?"

"Yep, she definitely takes after me in that way."

"So who am I looking after tonight? All four?"

"Actually, Velair and Rinyn are having a sleepover at my mom's house. So you'll be watching Ayrene and Syren. Speaking of whom….."

Jack looks down and sees half of a small blue face peeking out from behind her father's leg. Kaycee chuckles quietly, "Honey, it's okay. You remember Jack don't you?"

Tilting her head to one side, Jack gives the tiny blue girl a wink. Little Syren gasps and hides behind her dad's legs. Shepard sighs, reaching down to pick her up into her arms. Syren clutches her dad's neck tightly, watching Jack from the corner of her eye. "Hey now, it's fine. Jack's gonna watch you and your sister tonight. Your mom and I will be back later. Now then, why don't you say hello."

Jack thinks to herself, It's no surprise, she's nervous around me. The way I look. I'm just lucky she didn't start crying. Suddenly, she's looking into the brilliant blue eyes of Syren. "……..hi…….."

"Aww..that's my girl! Why don't you go get your friend to show Jack?"

Placing Syren back on the ground, she turns to see Liara at the bottom of the stairs, hand on the bannister. Jack gives a wolf whistle. "Wow! Aren't you a sight!"

"Hello Jack."

"Where you two going tonight anyways?"

"We're going to Elysium tonight for a nice dinner, maybe some dancing."

Jack bursts out laughing. "Dancing?!? How many times before people realize Shepard?"

Kaycee frowns in mock displeasure, punching Jack in the arm. "Who says I haven't been practicing?"

Liara looks at the clock. "Shepard, we better get going. Our reservation was for seven, remember?"

"Oh! You're right! Aya? Syren? We're heading out! Be good for Jack, alright?"

"Okay dad. Don't worry, we'll keep out of trouble."

Okay everyone, just want to say thanks for all the great support.

So here's part one......I hope you all enjoy.

It's was so much fun to write her like this. It's why I started writing the Shepard Family Stories (SFS for short). Show a bit of what they would be like outside war times.

Thanks for faving this!!!! :D

You have an amazing skill for writing :D!! keep on doing it :).

You are very Welcome!!!

You are Very welcome :D!!!!

it is very entertaining and it has sucked me in :D~~ I find the idea of Aria and Jack having a Child together very very interesting!! Aria is one of my favorite ME Character.
And the fact that they all have children is entertaining is well.

And just as a Note Ash is another of my favorite Characters so i cant wait to see what else you have planned for her ;)

Well she's Admiral Williams now that Hackett retired (in my universe).
She has a daughter, Elizabeth Williams. She's a single parent (long story :giggle:) and she has her own flagship in the Fifth Fleet.... The Gilgamesh (Dreadnought class).

Yeah, I had to give the others their own children. Makes a lot of sense.

Cassie, Gabe, Rampage, Kim, all of them are so much fun to right. I enjoyed coming up with interesting Zaeed/Aethyta or James/Kelly.

Dawn is one of my particular favorites. Makes so much sense for Jack and Aria to have a kid if Jack was there to help her take back Omega from Cerberus. (Thinking about writing a short series about Taking Back Omega).

I am so happy to hear that my work has done that for you!!! :D

Haha! I can imagine Shepard dancing! I hope she's learned to dance better. :D
I admire your creativity. This is such a nice story. :)

I can see her doing better with non-nightclub dancing :P like ballroom dancing etc.

I appreciate the wonderful comments and the continuing support! It means a lot to me :)!

I'm laying the groundwork for the next short. (Samara) O_O.
Gonna try to do at least one story for each of them :) (Might even throw in some holiday ones when the time rolls around)
Thanks again!
