Work Harder #1
“Lance, what were you thinking?” Shiro questioned him. His arms were shaking as he stepped towards the smaller boy. “You could have gotten one of us killed!"
Lance shivered under the harsh glare of the elder, "I understand that but the Galra were surrounding Keith and if I didn’t go there he would have die-”
"He would have been fine!“ Pidge interrupted. They crossed their arms and pointed at Lance with a furious stare that rivaled Shiro’s. "Keith was perfectly fine on his own! He’s capable of defending himself and obeying orders, unlike you.”
Lance frowned, “Okay, I get that but-”
Pidge shook her head, “Obviously not.” She sighed. She turned around, “Maybe you could actually do something right for once?”
“It’s not my fault.” The moment Lance had opened his mouth and said those words he regretted it.
Pidge blew up. “Of course it’s not your fault. It’s not your fault that you’re not strong enough. It’s not your fault that you’re too stupid to actually analyze and see what the outcome might be. It’s not your fault that every mistake that happens in this team is somehow related to you. It’s not your fault that we probably would have defeated Zarkon months ago if you weren’t involved. It definitely isn’t your fault that you’re the most useless paladin on this team. Why did blue even chose you to pilot her? You’re the worst paladin ever!”
Lance stopped. He couldn’t move.
“Pidge that was too much,” Lance heard Keith say to the smallest of the group.
Hunk nodded his head, “ I agree with Keith.”
Shiro shook his head, “She does have a point though. Please take things seriously, Lance.”
Keith sighed. If you can’t beat ‘em agree with them to some extent, “I guess.”
Hunk frowned, “No, he-”
“It’s okay, Hunk,” He heard Lance speak out. Lance gave a small sad smile. He turned to his ‘team mates’, “It’s all true.”
Lance turned away to walk back to his room.
No one chased after him. Maybe if one of them did, none of the following events would have happened.
