“No, sorry Lance I can’t hang. I’m out of town for the week. Sorry dude.” Pidge sounded far away on the phone. That was alright, she was always busy anyway. He’d called Shiro then.
“Nope. Sorry Lance. Keith and I are out of town.”
“For how long?”
“About a week?” That was cool. They were probably sucking face anyway, he didn’t need to be there for that.
“Allura do you wanna go to-”
“Lance, stop calling everyone. They told you, we’re out of town.” She cut him off rather harshly. Lance could hear someone say her name in the background to which she responded with a “what?”
“Wait, where are you guys?”
Allura came back to the phone and answered him as if he should have already known. “On a cruise. We’ll be back in a week. Lance we’ve been planning this for a month so if you could–”
“WAIT YOU LEFT ME OUT OF A CRUISE?! WHAT THE HELL ALLURA?!” Lance yelled into his phone. “Put me on speaker.” His mind ran in circles over all the reasons they left him out of a trip.
“Lance, can you chill? We didn’t think you’d want to come.” He could practically hear Keith roll his eyes.
“What gave you that impression?” Lance caught his voice wavering with each word he spoke. He was upset they left him out of a cruise and didn’t even tell him they were going in the first place. They purposely did this to him.
“Well we’re going to Cuba and we know how much you complain about the heat and bugs so we just thought you wouldn’t want to go.” Keith answered.
Lance nearly dropped the phone. He was in complete and utter shock.
He put the phone back to his ear and started cursing them out in Spanish feeling his fingers cramp from clutching the phone so hard now.
“Woah- Lance slow down what are you saying?!” Shiro’s voice was clear.
“I WAS BORN IN CUBA YOU DICKS.” He finally said with the tears choking him. He wheezed and coughed. “I have family in Cuba! And you’re going on a fucking cruise?! You didn’t ask me!”
“Lance we didn’t know-”
“BECAUSE YOU NEVER ASKED. Hunk knew– Wait where’s Hunk?” Lance had realized Hunk was the only one who hadn’t spoken to him.
“I’m right here Lance. I asked them why you weren’t coming and they told me you didn’t want to. It was odd but I didn’t call you. I’m sorry.” Hunk tried to explain but everyone knew he was just as guilty as the rest of them.
“Some fucking friends you are.” He almost hung up before he heard Keith one last time.
“Why the fuck are you so upset? Look, we’re sorry, we didn’t know. You can’t blame us–.” Lance never hung up the phone so fast before in his life.
He was angry, he was sad, and most of all he felt abandoned. They didn’t know where he was from despite him always talking about it, they didn’t think he’d want to come because he’d complain?
It doesn’t matter. He’s got other friends he doesn’t need them anyway. He doesn’t…
