The evening set in across the plain. Rays of sun now slipping away as the clouds began to sweep across the sky, roars of thunder heard in the distance. I'll be waiting for you. The words, spoken without hesitation, now imprinted into the wind of the open field. It was time to go. Droplets of cold water began to descend from the sky, now battered against the stretched fabric of the umbrella. He pulled the ebony haired woman in close, her fingers grasped at the loose hangings of his jacket. Warmth still radiating from her cheeks through the icy wind. They reenter the forest, following an old trail, now cover with leaves and branches that crunched under their feet as they moved along.

A shallow outline of a person appeared off the edge of the worn path, slowly fading into recognition. The girl, sixteen at present, peered off into the distance of the forest, lingering slightly as the leaves of the trees danced behind her. She was unaffected by the rain, as it pierced through the dark umbrella she held, not a single rivulet of water strained upon its surface. The figure looks over at the shivering woman in his grasp. A familiar smirk painting its way across her ghostly face. She nods once, her eyes meeting his in a sign of approval, before fading away into the fog.

This was my submission into :icongamingloveinterests: "Caught In The Rain" Contest.

As always, enjoy. :)

Is the sixteen year old Miranda? When she ran from her father? Thought I'd take a gander on who it might have been. Wonderful picture btw.

Haha, no, but nice guess! She's from Shepard's past. Her identity and relation to Riley will be properly disclosed in future works. :) 

(Though, if you're feeling observant, her name can be spotted in one of my more recent pieces)

I'm glad you like the picture. :D

I am so confused by what's going on in this pic or story but I really love this picture and the wording.

It's basically my Shepard's origins reaching into his current life. I haven't yet disclosed who the younger girl is, though I'm sure several people have guessed. The location they are at is referenced from the picture of Miranda looking up at the stars, at the end of Mass Effect 3.

I'm glad you like it. :)
