So a lot of people are interested in a Hanahaki AU
And that just makes me ridiculously happy. A few people have messaged me for more, and so here’s Part 2
So while Lance is waking up in the hospital after the surgery, Keith is just silently fuming with the others while they eat. Everyone’s avoiding the elephant in the room. Who was Lance in love with?
Keith didn’t know who she was, but there was a girl out there who almost killed Lance because she was too blind to how amazing he is and made him go through the pain of an unrequited love that almost killed him.
Then Shiro texts and says Lance is awake and Keith almost leaves everyone at the McDonald’s because they were taking too long to get in the damn car but they arrive at the hospital and everyone floods into Lance’s room just as the doctors leaving. Everyone’s hugging and crying and just making a mess of themselves because they’re so happy Lance is ok.
Then Lance looks over at Keith
And his smile dims a bit and he looks confused. “Uh, who are you?”
Everyone in the room freezes. Keith can’t breath. He tells Lance to stop joking around because he’s not funny, but Lance is genuinely confused and a little annoyed because this complete stranger just waltzed into his hospital room and now he’s insulting him? Fuck him… who ever he is.
Thats when the reality of the situation starts to hit Keith. It was him. Lance was in love with him. His world was falling apart.
“Why didn’t you tell me?! You idiot, why didn’t you tell me?!” Shiro has to drag him out of the room to calm down but he can’t calm down because Lance was in love with him and he broke his heart.
Inside the hospital room, everyones trying to get over their shock and explain to Lance that no, Keith wasn’t a stranger. They ask if he can remember anything about Keith, but nothings there. He can remember getting into a fight on the first day of school with …. someone. He can remember getting birthday gifts, but can’t remember giving them to anyone. He can remember an empty space between Shiro and Lance, just enough for another person to stand. Keith’s just became an empty space or a blurry face in his memory.
Once outside the hospital Keith makes a confession to Shiro. He’s at the first stage of Hanahaki himself and takes medication to keep the flowers from blooming. He’s been in love with Lance for the past year but it was unrequited. And now Lance doesn’t even remember him.
(Now he needs to start over and make Lance fall for him one more time)
