“We had a plan, Shiro, what the Hell were you thinking-”
“I told him not to follow me-”
“Why, so you could get yourself killed instead? You shouldn’t have run off on your own at all!”
“I was trying to protect you all-”
The question made Shiro’s blood run cold. He wanted to say ‘of course I was’, but Lance’s glare pushed the words back down his throat and made them taste like a lie. Shiro had never seen Lance like this, fists clenched, teeth bared, overflowing with rage. He could never have imagined the blue paladin’s voice so sharp and cold. The room was heavy with silence, and Shiro wanted to defend himself to them. But he knew he couldn’t.
When Lance stepped forward, Shiro felt like he had made an enemy, “Because if I learned anything from today’s mission, it’s that Keith is willing to die for you. And you would rather let him than admit you need help.”
