Day 4 of Prompto Week: Alternate Universe ★ Fears/Insecurities
Both because I love to hurt the boy.
Prompto had hoped that the others would get out of their funk after working out their frustrations out on the voretooth they were hunting, but, if anything, it got worse.
When Prompto tried to surge forward to catch a voretooth off guard while it was focused on Noctis, but Gladio grabbed a fistful of his jacket and threw him back several feet.
“Stay back!” Gladio yelled, “We don’t want you messing up our strategy. Just stay back and pick off the stragglers.”
Red-hot shame burned in his cheeks and he obeyed. He scrambled to his feet, readying his gun and tracking his shots. He noticed one about to pounce on Ignis and took it down with a well-placed shot.
Gladio whirled around, eyes glinting in anger, “What the hell do you think you’re doing?” He demanded, turning back to deal with yet another voretooth, “You could have shot Iggy!”
“B-but, I… “ Prompto stammered. The voretooth had been in between him and Ignis, sure, but he wasn’t so bad a shot that he could have hit Ignis. Gladio should have known that. But instead of saying anything, Prompto bit his lip and lowered his gun.
