Allura twisted her wrist out of Shiro’s grasp, laughing uncontrollably at his attempts to slow her down as they raced down the long castle corridor.
“You can’t beat an Altean at her own game! Nice try, mithnir,” She taunted, narrowly avoiding another one of his side-swipes.
“Who are you calling a mithnir, you mithnir?” Shiro grinned from ear to ear and his fingertips brushed her waist before she darted once more out of his reach. Allura bit off her giggle at the misinterpretation and put on another burst of speed. The two sped past the training room, where the other sparring paladins stopped short in bewilderment.
Pidge peered out the doorway, “Are they calling each other… cuties?”
You guys know that thing that Dad lions do to their children when teaching them how to fight and hunt? How they’ll go overboard and make a big scene that they’ve been vanquished when really the lil baby cub has just given them a tiny little nip?
Headcanon that Shiro totally does that with any of the paladins. Like they’re training and Shiro just falls down after one tiny graze to his side like “OH ya got me. Ooooooh, everything’s going so dark now…” and the kids are just like “Omg Shiro get up”
