    Summary

    Lance could see the pain behind Lotor’s eyes as he told his story. A flame that was no more than a few wild embers that burst from a dying fire.
    “You were just a kid,” Lance finally whispered.
    Lotor snorted as he turned his head to gaze into Lance’s eyes. “That clearly didn’t stop my father. Did it?”
    ___

    Sometimes pain runs deeper than any wound that can be left behind. Lance comes to know this when a mission goes awry and he ends up as a both a bargaining chip and a hostage by Lotor to be used against the other paladins of Voltron. But as Lance spends time as a hostage, enduring countless assaults on his mind, body and spirit; he slowly becomes aware that Lotor behaves nothing like the cold monster he assumed him to be. Not with the countless nights Lotor sits silently with him in his cell, or the nights Lotor brings him a healing salve for his wounds or the nights he swears he can see the faint shimmer of tears in the prince's eyes...or the heavy weight of trauma and pain that he can tell Lotor has buried deep in his heart. Sometimes one knows their enemy better than they know themselves and Lance soon finds that to be true.
