Keith nodded. “Yeah, what about it?” His frown seemed to be saying, why are you bringing it up now?
“Just,” Lance made a vague wide gesture with his hands. “I guess it’s been bugging me. Do you really see yourself like that? I mean, if we’re talking past that broody vibe you’ve got going on. Do you still, even now?”
Keith’s frown deepened. “I’ve been alone my whole life.”
— or: Lance had been watching Keith slowly pulling away from the team for months now and it wasn’t until Keith almost died that Lance realized how badly he messed up.
