Lance's P.O.V.
I've been avoiding Keith and Shiro all this morning, it hurts to think about them, let alone speak to them. I'm just so heart broken over everything that happened.

Finally the bell goes and I take a seat at my desk. I can feel Keith giving me worried glances but I try to ignore it, I don't want to feel worse then I already do. The teacher walks in and there is someone behind her.

A boy with long white hair and a very attractive face. He looks classy and rich, from here I can smell he's a prime alpha.

"Good morning everyone, I hope you're ready for Monday." Mrs.Smith states "Now we have a new student, this is Lotor Galra."

She turns to Lotor and he smiles.

"I'm Lotor Galra, I'm an exchange student from Galra High." He says "I hope we can all be good friends."

"You can take a seat next to Lance." The teacher states

I put my hand up to show Lotor who I am and he takes a seat next to me. Galra High is basically our "rival" high school. I'm guessing since his last name is the same as his school his father is Zarkon Galra, the principal. Just like Allura's last name, Altea, is the same because her father is the principal. After the teacher takes attendance she tells us to talk amongst ourselves.

"I don't think I've ever seen someone as beautiful as you." Lotor says, looking at me

"Are you talking about me?" I ask shocked

"Of course, I don't see anyone else with those beautiful blue eyes." He replies "Like the ocean on a clear day, stunning."

I try to hold back a blush at his words but they make me happy. I can't believe someone would say such nice things about me.

"I can see I've made you blush." He says and places a hand on my cheek "It's adorable."

Lotor's sweet words make me forget a little of my heartbreak. I get a short release from my pain. I probably shouldn't be so quick to fall for sweet words but at this point I feel so desperate. It's stupid but my heart can't take being alone anymore. I guess this is the curse of the omega.

**Time skip to lunch**

Keith's P.O.V.
I watch as Lotor slides closer to Lance on the long benches of the school cafeteria. He's been here for less than a day and he's already getting too close to Lance. Shiro must have noticed it as well.

There isn't much we can do, Lance will barely talk to us at this point. I don't know if we did something wrong but he won't meet our eyes. We were really hitting it off. At lunch we were getting to know one another, we always spoke and messaged each other, then suddenly he stopped after yesterday.

I don't know why, it's a little frustrating but mostly confusing, I wish I could understand what's going on inside his head.

"Keith, who is that?" Shiro whispers

"His name is Lotor, he arrived this morning." I reply "Who does he think he is putting his hands all over Lance?"

I watch as Lotor whispers something in Lance's ear and he softly smiles. It should be us whispering sweet things in Lance's ear, it should be us making him laugh and smile. I don't know why but I just get a really bad vibe off of Lotor. Maybe it's my instincts but something tells me that we should be careful around him.

Everyone else is sitting here as well but they don't seem to notice the fact that Lotor is basically eye fucking Lance. God I just want to protect Lance, but if Lance really likes Lotor then I guess I have to let him go. But I don't want to let him go.

**Time skip to a week later**

Lance's P.O.V.
It's been a week since Lotor arrived and we've become pretty close. He is always very polite, sweet, respectful and funny towards me. He's never asked about my secondary gender or let on to any idea he only likes me for my prime omega status.

Around Lotor I feel like I don't have to pretend to be happy. He always knows if I'm lying about how I feel. It was a little annoying at first but it's nice to have someone here for me.

'He'll leave you, just like Shiro and Keith'

Shiro and Keith didn't leave me, they were never mine in the first place. I don't really like Lotor the way I like Shiro and Keith but he's filling up an empty space in my heart. I know it's bad and I'm using him, but I don't want to let the feeling go. It's been so long since I last felt loved and I can probably grow to love Lotor as well.

'Feel loved? Like you did with Shiro and Keith, right before you saw them kissing in the bathroom?'

Yes loved, why can't I just feel happy about this?

'Because your heart will get broken again, do you really think you could handle another heartbreak?'

Well no...

'Then why are you setting yourself up again? It all ends the same, with you crying while they love someone who's better than you'

No stop...

'Stop what? Saying the truth? You know it's true, I know it's true. What do you think Shiro, Keith or Lotor would say if they found out how pathetic you really are?'

They're my friends, they would care for me!

'Then why haven't you told them? Where's Lotor now? Has he already left you?'

"I'm going to the bathroom." I say quickly standing up

I need a moment to clear my head and maybe splash some water on my face will help.

Keith's P.O.V.
I watch as Lance quickly hurries away. He looks really worried about something but he won't talk to Shiro or I so I don't want to push it.

"Hey have you guys noticed how close Lance is with Lotor all of a sudden?" I ask

"It's because Lotor's showing him affection." Pidge says, looking up from their laptop

"What do you mean?" Shiro replies

"Lance may act flirtatious and seem like he's always really happy but he's not." Hunk says "He is always really worried no one will love him."

"He used to be really depressed and anxious." Pidge states "He's gotten better but I think he's still worried that he'll never be viewed as 'the soulmate' by anyone."

"Wow, that was really insightful." Allura says looking a little shocked

"Well Lance is one of my best friends." Pidge replies "I know almost everything about everyone."

"Remind me not to get on your bad side." I say

"Either way I'm still worried about Lance, he's seemed so distant lately." Shiro says

"I've been friends with him for years so I can confirm that, he's been acting really strange." Hunk states "But maybe Lotor will be good for him, he's seemed happier over the past week with him."

That hits my heart like a knife, it's painful to imagine Lance with someone other than Shiro and I. But if it really makes him happy then I won't stop him.

"I don't know, Lotor gives me a bad vibe." Shiro says "He seems...threatening, I get a dangerous sense around him."

Shiro is a prime alpha, they have impeccable instincts and are in tune with their warning signals. If Shiro is picking up bad vibes then it can only mean dangerous things.
