This is the first chapter to my fanfiction about Keith and Allura from Voltron. Whether the characters look like they did in the old show or the new show is up to you. I feel this first chapter is kind of sad but I promise if you keep reading onto the next chapters they will be better.
Allura sat quietly on her bed as Nanny shouted viciously at her. She was totally oblivious to what Nanny was trying to get through to her. Allura had been out till midnight the last night with Keith, which was what Nanny was so upset about.
It had been an innocent walk that the two of them had gone out on. At least innocent is how it started.
The entire conversation she and Keith had shared echoed in her mind as Nanny continued the pep talk. They had discussed their feelings for each other. How their love would never come to an end.
Allura had been waiting for that moment ever since she and Keith had met. The image of his handsome face appeared in her head. His blue eyes twinkling as he said he loved her.
"Allura! Allura! ALLURA ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME!" Nanny shouted at the top of her lungs bringing Allura back to reality.
Allura sprang from her seat startled and exclaimed, "I…I'm sorry…I-"
"What kind of a world do we live in?" Nanny sobbed. "The princess doesn't even listen to her caretaker. Why princess? Why would you do this to me?"
Nanny slumped down onto her knees resting her head on Allura's lap weeping bitterly.
Allura rolled her eyes.
"It's…o…k," she said patting Nanny on the back.
"No it's not princess!" Nanny sniffled.
Allura glanced at the clock. They had been in her room for over an hour and she was starting to get hungry.
"Nanny, don't you think-"
"What on earth urged you to do something like this?" Nanny sobbed.
"It wasn't that bad," Allura said.
"Wasn't that bad? You almost kissed him!" Nanny cried.
Allura slipped off the bed setting Nanny down softly and said, "Nanny, I don't know what you're so upset about. Keith is-"
"A fighter pilot!" Nanny practically shouted. "He is not of royal blood. Therefore, it is not permitted for the two of you to be anything but friends."
"I don't want to hear another word about this!" Nanny growled. "Understand!"
"But I love him. I-"
"Not another word!" Nanny exclaimed and with that she turned around leaving Allura standing speechless.
Keith stood silently staring into space through the large window. He had been doing so for the past hour thinking of what he had said to the princess the last night.
It was true; he loved her and would give his life for her but he was only a fighter pilot. He wasn't worthy of her. He longed to hold her tightly just like he longed to place a ring around her finger, but he knew that was only a fantasy. A fantasy that he didn't think would ever come true.
He wished the last night would have never happened. For one, Nanny wouldn't be hamming the poor princess with her words and possibly wouldn't be out to get him, which he knew she was.
Hearing footsteps approaching Keith hurried himself away from the window and hastily swung open a small closet door. After leaping inside, he closed the door franticly. He then placed his ear against the door listening carefully.
"I have to admit, you've out done yourself with the new technology you installed on the lions," Keith heard Lance's cheerful voice say.
"Well you can thank king Alfor for leaving the blue prints for it behind," Pidge's voice came next.
Keith sighed in relief. He had honestly thought it was Nanny coming with a chainsaw ready to teach him a lesson.
He began opening the closet door to see his two friends standing there.
"WHAT THE FRICK!" Lance exclaimed startled by the closet door suddenly opening.
A smile made its way over Keith's face.
"KEITH!" Lance exclaimed angrily. "What the heck!"
"I thought you were Nanny," Keith said shrugging.
"Nanny?" Pidge asked. "What did you do to her?"
"Since when does a sixty year old woman scare a "tuff" fighter pilot like you?" Lance asked smirking.
"Don't tell me you've never hid in a closet from her," Keith said.
Lance frowned thinking back to the hundreds of times he had hid in the very closet Keith had just come out of from the old woman.
"Never mind that," he said crossing his arms. "You have to check out the new technology Hunk and Pidge just installed in the lions."
"Already checked it out," Keith said. "Well done Pidge."
"Thank Hunk. He did most of the work," Pidge said.
"We should probably practice with it before Lotor decides to strike again," Keith said.
"We might have to do it without the Princess," Lance said. "Nanny's been scolding her for the past hour. She's practically trapped in her room."
"What is that about anyways?" Pidge asked.
"Beats me," Lance said.
"It's nothing," the three guys suddenly heard Allura's voice say from behind them.
"You're free!" Lance said. "Let's go round up Hunk so we can get some practice time in."
Pidge followed him out as Keith stayed behind staring at Allura.
"Keith," Allura said smiling, "I'm so sorry about Nanny. She makes me so mad sometimes!"
Keith peeled his eyes off the beautiful princess and turned to face the window.
"Allura, I," he sighed. How was he supposed to tell her he wanted to remain friends after what he had said the last night?
"What is it Keith?" Allura asked making her way up to him placing her hand on his shoulder.
Keith turned around to face her once more taking her hand in his.
"I think…I think it would be best if we remained friends," he said immediately regretting his hasty words.
Allura stared at him for a moment and then glanced down at the floor.
"Keith please, Nanny is-"
"Nanny is right," Keith said. "I'm just a fighter pilot and you're a princess."
"Keith wait!" Allura called after him as he exited the room.
