One night in Omega, a man named John was drinking the night away after divorcing his wife and leaving his four kids in a orphanage. His hands were shaking and he was aching for a fight.
“Bartender, one more please”, he requested. “You’ve had ten drinks tonight, John. Enough is enough”, replied the turian bartender. “You’ll give me a drink or…” began John.
Just then, a asari approached John. “It’s okay. It’s on me”, said the asari. “Asari paying for your drinks, John? How low”, said the bartender. The bartender then poured a drink and slammed it into the bench. “Go get drunk in Afterlife”, he snorted. The bartender then stormed away.
The asari then sat beside John. “Thanks for that. What’s your name?” asked John. “Aria. I’m just a poor sap like you’, replied Aria. “You’re one of the few asari that I have met who does not work in Afterlife”, said John. “Unlike the other asari, I actually have some self-esteem and self-respect”, snorted Aria. “How long have you been here for?” asked John. “No more than six or seven months. I just drift from system to system looking for a home”, said Aria. “You can crash at my house if you want”, said John. “I appreciate that”, replied Aria.
In John’s home, Aria examined John’s statues, ornaments and heirlooms. “Your house is a masterpiece. Where did you get all this stuff?” asked Aria. “That would be telling”, chuckled John. Aria then sat next to him. “You must hate all the chaos that seems to plague this station. T’Loak isn’t doing anything about it. it must irritate you to know that people are getting shot down in the streets”, she said. “Yes, I am. I do hate the chaos, but I have learned to live with it”, replied John. “So have I, but I have also learned how to seek out people who interest me”, rpelied Aria. “What are you talking about?” asked John. “You know, meld and date people who interest me. Maybe, I can teach you how to open yourself”, replied Aria. “Thanks, but no thanks. I don’t share my bed with strangers”, said John. “I’m not talking about that. Melding is different. I can open your mind to pleasures that it hasn’t felt in ages”, replied Aria. “okay, you can try it if you want”, said John. “Excellent”, said Aria.
Aria then turned her eyes pitch black and John gazed into them. “Look into my eyes. Tell me you love me. Tell me you can’t resist me”, said Aria. John gazed deeply into Aria’s hypnotic eyes. He could not resist them. All he could see were those beautiful and drawing eyes. He paid attention to no one else, nothing else, but those eyes “I love you. I can’t resist you”, he repeated. “Good boy. Now we’re going to have some fun”….
