Shepard- A pleasure to meet you Mrs. Williams.
Mrs. Williams- Quite. Now Ashley if you and your sister would excuse us for a moment, I have something to discuss with the commander.
Ashley- But mom we are in the middle of….
Mrs. Williams- Don’t but mom me, Ash.
Ashley takes her sister by the hand and leads her to a spot near the cafe’s counter. Mrs. Williams clears her throat.
Mrs. Williams- I understand that you and my daughter have become reacquainted. Is that correct?
Shepard- We are taking it slow, ma’am.
Mrs. Williams- As slow as you did the last time, commander, before you died and left my daughter bereft only to come back allied with a terrorist organization?
Shepard- I was listed M.I.A. ma’am and as far as Cerberus is concerned I ended my relationship with them the moment they betrayed humanity.

Shepard- They’ll have to through me first, ma’am.
Mrs. Williams nods an leaves. Sarah walks by the table.
Sarah Williams- Ash was right, you still have a great ass.
Ash facepalms in the background.
