“One for Voltron, zero for the Galra!” Lance shouted into his mic. He heard the groans of a few of his team members (Keith stood out most since his groan was accompanied with a “Stop.” ) Though some of his team chuckled lightly.
“Yeah yeah, ” Lance mocked, “you groan now but if I were to leave you would miss me. Admit, you’d miss me.”
Lance laughed loudly, “See!”
Lance’s laugh halted, “That was uncalled for Keith.“ His head was filled with the amused laughter of the other four paladins.
Lance made a quick dive, landing on a platform sticking out the side of a Galra ship. "Okay,” Lance spoke into his microphone, “I’m in."
"Lance, go down the hall and take the first left.” Pidge’s voice advised him. “Once you get there, there is a guard standing, well, Ya know. Guard.” Pidge chuckled to themselves, “Anyway, take him out. Come back to me when you finish him.”
Lance pressed himself against the wall. He grabbed his Bayard and lifted it onto his shoulder with the safety off and his trigger finger ready to pull. He took a deep breath and ran down the hall. He was able to quickly take down the unsuspecting guard.
“Okay, Pidge. What now?” He spoke into his microphone.
“You have about two minutes to shut down the ship and get the crystal before the other guards are alerted,” Pidge replied. Faint typing could be heard from her side. “I’ve deactivated all alarms so you can grab it.”
Lance nodded to no one in particular and rushed over to the desired item. He wrapped his hands around the fragile crystal. He pulled it off, waiting a moment for any sign of disaster. After it seemed clear her but it in a sack that Allura had given him that controlled and maintained the crystals power.
Lance quickly turned around to get out of the room. He made it to the door when he heard shouting from down the hall. He quickly grabbed his Bayard and shot at the people chasing after him.
He rounded the corner and made his way to the door. Lance turned to look behind him to see if anyone was following. While doing so his foot got caught in a small pothole causing him to lose balance and fall back. He released his hold on the sack which was tossed into the air and landed Foot steps got louder as they neared. He looked at the crystal and then to his Bayard. He took a breath and gulped.
Ten Galra filed into the room. They pointed their guns and Lance who summoned his shield to block himself. Lance felt a bullet graze his back and muttered a curse. He rested his Bayard on his shoulder and shot at three of the soldiers, wounded them greatly but not enough to kill them. He gunned down two others, they weren’t as lucky. Lance watched as three of them retreated. He shot one of the men running straight towards him. He used the moment of silence to grab the crystal and climb into his Lion.
“Lance, you okay?” Keith’s voice came through his helmet.
“Awww,” Lance cooed, “is someone worried about me?”
“Shut up,” Keith’s annoyed voice spat.
Lance was about to retort only to be interrupted by Pidge, “ But really, Lance, are you sure. It looked like of them got you.”
Lance shook his head, well aware no one could see him, “It was just a graze in my lower back. I think they’re holding out on us.”
“Speak for yourself!” Hunk shouted at him, “I think I might have a concussion from all the times I’ve hit my head on the back of my seat. It hurts, Ya know.”
Laughter from all the paladins filled his head.
“Paladins, please report back to the castle. The Queen of Oki and its citizens have arranged a party in thanks.”
“Of course, Princess,” Lance smiled to himself and muted himself.
Everyone was having fun.
Hunk was stuffing his mouth with something that looked horrible but tasted like chocolate pudding.
Pidge was having a chat with one of the engineers about a robotic pigeon that was able to alert, serve, and defend the person who it was programmed to protect.
Allura and Shiro were talking to the Queen and her three daughters. Lance was pretty sure the Queen was trying to marry Shiro and her eldest judging by Shiro’s slightly disturbed and confused face and Allura’s laughter.
Meaning Lance himself was sitting back and watching his friends chatter and relax. He grabbed a napkin and reached over to grab him helmet to wipe off his visor only to realize that he had left it back at the blue lion.
He looked at each paladin before shrugging. He couldn’t bring himself to interrupt them and it wasn’t like they would notice if he was gone.
