Planet Lance Part 3/6
“How dare she! How quiznaking dare she! I will skin her alive and feed her to a fish!” Lance was sobbing by the end of his sentence. He fell to his knees now screaming wordlessly. His friend was dead. Lance had told him to stop, to not do it but he didn’t listen. Why didn’t he listen?
Lance didn’t have the energy to struggle in Genus’ arms but he sure did find some when Culus started walking toward them.
“What do you think your doing?” Genus seemed to panic at the question so Lance took it upon himself to answer.
“He was just taking me to the next test.” Culus seemed to be content with that answer and turned to lead the way.
“The next test is to once again save the girl but this time you have to climb through the vents to find her while you are being attacked by what you earthlings call spiders.”
Sounds easy enough, right? Wrong. Lance was deeply afraid of both small spaces and spiders. He was barely able to pull Pidge out of the vents of the castle. The only reason he did was because his concern for her health outweighed his fear. But this time he had to ignore his pain as well as his fear. What also made it worse was it wasn’t mentioned that the spiders were 10x the size that they are on earth. Lance was scared shitless. All he had was a short rusted sword and his claustrophobia. He could hear the girl and she sounded scared. Focusing on her he quickly killed the overgrown arachnids and found her in a room surrounded by the creatures. So thinking like Keith he jumped into battle without a plan.
Lance was pretty sure if his arms hadn’t been broken before they definitely were now. His ribs were beyond doubt broken and he had split open the lashes on his back. He ignored it all as he picked up the small seemly helpless girl. His everything hurt and he was relived when he saw Genus running toward him. He was shouting something that Lance couldn’t hear. Then he was going down. Lance dropped the girl that had fired the shot and ran to his new friend.
