Hold Your Colour ch.5"You, Sere, are an idiot
"Kolyat had never heard Fae address his father like that. He had just exited the showers, not meaning to eavesdrop, but hearing Fae and his father fighting had caused him to pause."You are not a doctor, Shepard; I am fine I assure you.""Yea, you're the picture of health. I completely forgot that only the healthiest individuals hack up their own organs.""It was a moment of weakness nothing more, it will not happen again
""Yea, not where I can catch you, you aren't sleeping are you?"It was true. In the two days Kolyat had stayed aboard the Normandy he had seen his father sleep maybe once. The rest of the time Thane either read books he had borrowed from Kasumi or slipped into his meditations.Thane didn't respond. Kolyat peered around the corner to find his father seated at one of the large dining tables, his head resting against the smooth surface. He was panting, as if he couldn't catch his breath, and Kolyat felt his chest tighten in response.
