*bows dramatically* as you wish, my dear anon! :3 have some Shance!
It was hours before Shiro deemed Blue calm enough to approach. The door slid open, and he moved slowly, quietly, towards the still possibly volatile Lion. She was sitting cross legged in front of Lance’s pod, head resting on her hand with an elbow set on her thigh, eyes firmly on the dipping and climbing line across the glass that signaled Lance’s heartbeat, golden orbs rising and falling with every pulse.
Shiro didn’t speak, just sat next to her to watch the vitals as well. Her eyes flicked to him for a moment, but chose to merely chuff in acknowledgment and continue watching her Paladin sleep.
Several moments passed before she spoke up. “I’m not sorry for yelling at you.” Blue said quietly, drawing her knees up to her chest and trapping them with her arms, resting her chin on her knees. Shiro shook his head. “I wasn’t going to ask for an apology. You had every right to get angry at us. I didn’t realize I’d been putting him down and making him feel useless… I just wanted him to learn from his mistakes. He really is a good sharpshooter and an amazing Paladin… but I guess I just kept forgetting to say it aloud. As for the ignoring him part… there’s no excuse for that. We all should have paid more attention to how he was feeling. The other Lions did take up some of our time… but we should have included Lance more.” He explained, leaning back on his hands with his legs folded in front of him.
Blue huffed out a short, wry laugh. “At least you admit to the error of your ways… Though I understand the need to spend time on the Lion and Paladin bond, your team bond could use some work. I do hope you treat him better after this… he might be a little bitter at first, but to be fair you all kind of deserve it.” Shiro chuckled. “I won’t disagree with you on that… but I can promise that I’ll praise him and pay attention to his feelings more from now on.” He seemed to think something over, before caving and tilting his head to look at the overprotective mama Lion.
“I don’t want to lose him either. I was worried sick when you two got hit with that laser… even before that, I kept having nightmares about Lance disappearing or worse, getting killed… I can’t tell you how many times Black had to keep me from barging into his room at night just to check on him.” Shiro admitted, almost shyly. Blue raised an eyebrow, filing the information away to confirm with Black later. Sighing, he continued with a confession that shocked her to her core.
“I think… I might care about him more than I probably should.”
*loud evil cackling as I leave you all to drown with this cliffhanger*
