Two pairs of snow boots heavily trudged uphill on slick and slushy terrain. The sun was shining brightly in the clouded sky, but beneath it was deceiving- trees without leaves, snow and ice filtering the ground, crisp flakes soaring and swooshing about with the wind. It was cold, the skin on Ethan’s arms erupting in goosebumps under his coat while he held firmly to his snowboard. A smirk lifted on his lips listening to you moan and groan.
“Go to Colorado, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.” You huffed, stepping around a few more boulders, twigs crunching under your feet. “I knew I should’ve tagged along with Grayson, instead.”
Lance heaved his body forward, gaining as much momentum as possible. Once he had enough leverage he flopped over the edge of the tank and landed with a loud thump. Lance paused for a second, hoping he hadn’t awaken Shiro or Keith.
He didn’t want to wake up the pair as they hardly got much sleep. They deserved a rest.
Lance slipped into the water with ease and sighed as the kinks he had gained from the tank slowly eased out, Lance stretched out and dipped down beneath the waves.
He smiled as he spotted a school of unfamiliar fish swim by, he sped down to them and glided through the school. They parted for him and Lance laughed when they began nudging him questioningly.
He swam with them, laughing in joy as they circled before leaving to the bottom, where the corals were. He examined the reef excitedly, looking at the species that were never in his area. He played with the tiny fish, crustaceans and other things living among the reef.
Lance giggled as some of them nibbled on his fingers, but, as he played, a dark shadow was cast over him. He looked up quickly and the sight that greeted him was a manta ray, willowing along gracefully, a few meters back was two more manta rays. Lance squealed in excitement, although they were common in his area Lance always loved them so much. They were so cute.
Lance swam up to greet them. “Oh aren’t you guys just the cutest?” Lance squealed as one of them flopped on top of him excitedly. Lance rubbed it’s belly, they swam circles around Lance before leaving on their way.
The moonlight filtered through the rippling water, illuminating Lance and his surroundings. He knew he should be heading back soon, but Lance was having fun.
