Ficlet: Heirs to the United King and Queendoms of Galra and Altea
Day 7 of the VLD
Drabble Challenge – Royalty AU
Shiro and Allura decided before they married that the child they would
eventually bore wouldn’t inherit the United King and Queendoms of Galra and
Altea. Shiro came into the union with two adopted sons, Lance and Keith, both
strapping young warriors who would make them proud as rulers.
Lance was the diplomat, gifted with words and tone that charmed every
maiden and lad of the court. He spent hours helping to smooth disputes with his
smile and sharp mind rather than his sword and brute. That was where Keith
excelled, fast with the tongue but faster with his blade, and he ended any
potential threats before they came to fruitions.
To choose one to carry on Galra and Altea’s proud heritage proved
difficult. Shiro couldn’t choose between either. He loved his sons equally, and
each proved himself worthy of the heavy burden. Shiro called them to the Grand
Hall to discuss the matter, though Lance always had a perchance for resistance.
