    Summary

    “No matter what this world holds, it won’t shake me loose.”

    Keith looks up, away watches the fluorescent lights of the hospital room flicker. He wants to gather Lance into his arms, tell him that the universe is cruel and horrible and unloving. Wants to tell him that the world will damn well try its hardest to shake him loose, throw everything it can at him. That optimism isn’t worth shit to the world. That soon Lance will place his foot wrong and tumble down that hill just like everyone else. Instead, he curls further in on himself and crosses his arms over his knees. Stays silent.

    Lance continues, voice achingly confident and unwavering. “I’m not going down that easily.”

    Summary

    “Allura, where is this coming from?”

    “I called us boring, and now she wants to prove me wrong,” Keith explains, rubbing the bridge of his nose in hopes of stopping the oncoming headache. Coran looks exhausted at both of them.

    “You’re making me rearrange your meetings regarding the gala for Tralfan Helper Monkeys over a bet with the paladin?”

    Because they're both aliens who are bad at feelings, Keith and Allura hold a bet on who can set the other up with the best date.

    Summary

    “Do you really not remember me?”

    Lance’s back was turned, his face angled toward the sky, but the incessant tap of his fingers on the side of the swing told Keith that all Lance’s attention was directed at him, waiting for his answer.

    Keith clenched his jaw. He wanted to remember Lance. He wanted to look into those ocean blue eyes and swear that he had known them before. He wanted to say that there was at least something familiar about Lance, some flicker at the back of his mind, some dormant memory just aching to be awoken.

    But no matter how hard he tried, it just wasn’t true.

    “I wish I did,” Keith whispered softly. “I’m sorry.”

    -
    In which Keith gets Hanahaki disease, and has the operation to remove the flowers, along with any memory of Lance, the boy who he’d loved. There’s misunderstandings, there’s regret, there’s heartbreak. How will the boys deal with the aftermath?
