“I thought you were dead.”
Lance blinks and then he turns his head towards the voice, wincing subtly when his neck pops at the movement. His mouth twitches upward happily when he catches the frame of his boyfriend on the door.
“Well, that makes two of us, huh?” Lance tries, shrugging his shoulders playfully before dropping them in defeat when Shiro doesn’t react.
“Please, don’t joke about that, Lance.” He whispers, taking a step into the room and closing the door behind him, “For a second there we thought – I thought…”
“Hey.” Lance calls softly when Shiro doesn’t continue, moving around on the bed until he was half sitting before raising his healthy arm carefully towards his boyfriend, “Please, come here?”
The brunet easily notices the second of hesitation in Shiro’s posture but soon enough, the leader is making his way towards the bedside.
Shiro settles himself on the edge of Lance’s bed, body half turned away from the brunet but that doesn’t stop Lance from taking Shiro’s hand into his own.
“Mi rey, it’s over. What’s done it’s done. We survived, I survived.” Lance says firmly, his mind trying to block the sadistic echo of the druid’s laughter and he has to suppress a shiver when his body twitch involuntarily as he feels their phantom hands over his body, twisting and scarring as they please.
Lance shakes his head stubbornly. “It’s over.” He repeats, sighing and relaxing his shoulders before focusing once again on Shiro. “It’s over now and I need you to look at me, cielo.”
Shiro bites his lip and turn his eyes further away from Lance.
“I - I’m sorry, I just…”Shiro pauses and Lance waits patiently, rubbing his thumb against his boyfriend’s hands in comfort, “I thought I lost you, Lance. I thought – I’m just… scared that this is a dream and I will wake up and you will be gone and I can’t – I can’t face that, I’m not strong enough.”
Lance’s eyes soften and then he’s leaning closer to his boyfriend’s side, trying to catch Shiro’s dropped gaze.
“Hey.” He calls, pouting when Shiro doesn’t look up, “Cielo, hey ~ ! Just tell me how this feels, okay?”
Lance then untangles their intertwined hands before he picks Shiro’s and places it on his cheek.
“How does it feel, Shiro?” He asks quietly and he leans towards the touch when Shiro starts rubbing his thumb against his skin.
“Soft.” Shiro answers just as quietly.
“How about this?” Lance asks next, placing the hand on his neck.
Shiro gulps and his lip quivers as he answers. “Warm.”
“And this?” He whispers gently, putting his boyfriend’s hand right above his heart.
“Alive.” Shiro chokes out emotionally, a few stray tears falling from the corner of his eyes but Lance’s there to wipe them off.
“Exactly.” Lance beams, eyes bright and smile wide, “Exactly, mi amor. Alive, right now, you and me.”
He leans closer, nuzzling his face against his boyfriend’s playfully before he continues. “And that’s enough. That will always be enough: us, right now, right here. So, please, let yourself feel and hope, mi rey, because I’m right here and I’m not leaving.”
Lance would pat himself on the back if he could when he sees the watery smile growing on his boyfriend’s face at his words. “I will hold you on to that, kitten.”
Lance blows a small raspberry playfully before grinning. “I do feel pretty much alive right now, you know.” He says, poking himself curiously on the cheek before poking his boyfriend’s, “What’s even better is that you too feel alive.”
Shiro snorts and bites his lower lip to fight back the smile that threatens to grow.
“And I’m so grateful for that.” Lance whispers warmly, caressing Shiro’s cheek lovingly.
“Me too.” Shiro whispers back, leaning his head until his forehead is pressing against Lance’s gently, “So damn grateful.”
Lance just hums, dropping a quick eskimo kiss on Shiro’s nose.
