Lance couldn’t stop the tears from falling down his cheeks.
He hadn’t meant to mess up so bad in training, it’s just he hadn’t slept thanks to being kept up with nightmares of getting back to Earth and his family are long dead.
He had failed at even the simplest exercises and Allura had tried to be patient but even she had her limit and snapped at him.
Lance had managed to hold off crying until they were dismissed and he shut himself off in his room.
It hurt to be so useless, he could mess up and someone could die.
“Lance buddy?” Hunk knocked on the door “you missed dinner, is everything ok?”
Lance felt panic rise in his chest “I’m f-fine!” He said too quickly.
There was silence for a moment “that’s it I’m coming in” Hunk didn’t wait for Lance’s response and instead slid open the door.
One look at Lance’s tears stained cheeks and red eyes were enough for Hunk.
He pulled Lance onto his lap and wrapped his strong arms around him.
Lance melted into his touch hesitating for a moment before the flood gates opened.
He began to sob while Hunk ran his fingers through his hair whispering quiet words of comfort
An hour later Lance had calmed down and was fast asleep on Hunk.
Hunk kissed the top of Lance’s head “I love you buddy.”
Lance smiled in his sleep cuddling closer “love you too.”
