killerkumquat asked: Fic about May and Lan Fan being awesome ladies and kicking ass together and ~bonding~?
YEAAAAH! um i may have gone overboard with this.
“He collapsed,” May stared at the boy face down in the desert sand.
“He did,” Lan Fan sighed.
“How often does he do this?”
“Every few days.”
“What’s wrong with him?”
“He’s always been fairly sickly.”
“Ling Yao. Sickly.”
“Yes, he pushes himself a lot.”
“How did he get across the desert the first time?”
“I carried him part of the way.”
“You’re kidding me! This useless guy who has to be carried by his bodyguard is going to be the emporer! Who carried your things back then?”
Lan Fan looked down at her feet. “Grandfather did.”
“…Oh.” May cursed herself internally. So stupid, asking the question without thinking. “W-well, I…I’ll take care of our things this time…”
“You can’t even walk properly. And Grandfather’s body is too heavy for you. We’ll have to camp here for the day.”
Lan Fan went to set up their shelter. May sighed and poked Ling’s head with her finger. He’d made her fall over too, when he’d collapsed while supporting her. “Useless boy, being a burden on your help. I could steal the philosopher’s stone from you right now if I wanted to. You should be grateful that unlike you, I have morals.”
“Chang, stop poking him and come help me set the tent,” Lan Fan called.
“That’s Princess to you!” May said, but she crawled over.
