After quietly sitting in his spot, leaning against the back of the couch, with his head hanging low and his arms crossed, Joker finally found the inner strength to raise his head. He absently glanced around the room. It all looked so sparkling, shiny, new and... empty. The same place that had looked so inviting when they had first arrived seemed so dark and cold to him now.
His eyes rested on what seemed to be a state-of-the-art sound system. He walked towards it, mainly to see if his initial assumption was correct. Out of curiosity, he pressed the 'on' button on the device and the radio station stored in the memory system came up automatically.

“Hey, you do know how to fire that thing right?” Vega looking at Joker with a little worry.
“Yeah I do, be thankful! I'm not just a pilot ya know, we did have to take some armed basic back at the academy. And it was regulated with the Alliance military.

“Shut it you two, there's something down there,” Garrus said as he motioned for them to c
