That’s What Friends Do
Lance Week Day Two: Friends
Day two of Lance week is completed!! I really need to stop making these things so long. And in case you’re wondering, yes the title is the song title from the Spongebob episode where he and Patrick met Wormy. If you were not wondering, well now you know.
Lance was friends with a lot of people in his school. This was due to his ability to see the good in everyone. That included the “problem students”. The only reason people really had a problem with them was that they never got to know them. Instead, they chose to believe the rumors others would spread. But Lance knew the truth, they had his back since elementary school. The only times they would fight was when they were defending Lance. Hunk, Nyma, and Allura were like his protectors. Ever since that one time he was pushed off the monkey bars in second grade, they made it their mission to defend him at all costs.
Now in high school, his family had to relocate thanks to his dad getting a promotion at work. It wasn’t too far away, but it was far enough that he had to change school districts. And with the money, his dad was now making they could afford to send him and his sibling to better schools. They decided on the Garrison for Lance because of his interest in astrology, but they also had one of the best marine biology programs too in case that’s what he wanted.
At first, it was hard adjusting to a new school without his friends at his side, at least one of them always shared a class with him, but it wasn’t like he couldn’t see them anymore. They would video chat almost every day after classes, get one of their parents to drive them over to Lance’s house for the weekend, or just talk on a very confusing 4-way call. Lance always made jokes about how it felt as though they were his parents and he had left for college, but it filled him with warmth knowing that they cared so much for him.
