"Oh shit you weren't kidding." Hunk whispered, peering inside the cracked open door. Lance scanned the dormitories lining hall, apparently nobody had heard/cared that a fellow college student had screamed like a child and barged through to the hallway. A decidedly apt commentary on his experience at university.

"Did you think I was lying?!" Lance said, his hands shaking as he placed a handful of fries into his mouth. Hunk had gotten him a large meal deal. He loved Hunk.

"No no" he placated, "I just thought you, I dunno, watched a horror movie in the dark again or something."

"Hunk I'm never doing that again, I don't hate myself."

After a few seconds of Hunk peeking into Lance's dorm, mouth open, he said, "He's just standing there."

"It's a he?"

"Yeah, I think so. Come look."

"No, fuck you."

"Come on, buddy. Seriously." Hunk tugged lightly on Lance's arm. He looked way too excited for this kind of situation.

"No Hunk, seriously." Lance replied, surprised at the sudden rush of emotion. His voice shook and his eyes became stupidly blurry with tears. God, he hated this kind of shit. "I'm like, super terrified right now."

"Alright yeah, fair enough." Hunk kept his eyes to the inside of Lance's door, but his face had softened. He turned to give Lance a quick smile and squeezed his shoulder.

It was times like this that Lance was overwhelmed with gratitude for having Hunk as a friend. The man came to his aid because Lance said he saw a fucking ghost, with no questions asked and armed with a large McDonald's meal deal no less. He's known the big guy for years, since high school, and even since the beginning Hunk had basically cared for Lance unconditionally. When the other students outcasted Lance for his severe ADHD which often came off as inattentiveness and overeagerness, Hunk was there asking if Lance would sit with him at lunch, and every lunch after that. Hunk had known him long enough to know that despite Lance's joking in the group chat, he was genuinely distressed, and despite the fact Lance was attempting to shovel an entire burger into his mouth, he still knew Lance was afraid.

"How are you so calm right now?" Lance asked, a little incredulously. "I thought you of all people would be shitting yourself along side me."

"To be honest if you weren't here, I would be shitting myself." Hunk chuckled timidly.

"Bro, do I give you strength?"

"Yeah bro."

"Bro."

"Dude, I know you're super scared but like," Hunk slid his body to the side, making room for Lance, "he's seriously not doing anything. He's just standing there, staring at the wall."

"That makes it worse!" Lance exclaimed, before covering his mouth, terrified that the ghost had heard. Hunk had the same idea and stared inside the room, only to sigh relievedly and make a 'its fine' gesture with his hand. Lance quieted before saying, "He's all, menacing and shit."

"He looks like a twink from the 80's."

"What?"

"He's got a mullet and everything."

"Ew, what?" Lance said, scootching forward to look through the door. Lance's heart froze, a shock running through his body that chilled his bones. It scared him all over again to see the translucent body, the streetlights shining through the window causing it to be almost invisible. It was difficult to distinguish its features from such a distance, but Hunk was right. The ghost most definitely had a man's figure. And was most definitely twinky. And most definitely had a mullet. He just stood there, in the centre of Lance's room, body phased through his shitty, blue, over-stuffed beanbag.

Hunk's phone chimed the same time Lance felt the familiar buzz of his phone in his hand. Hunk quickly put his phone silent before they looked at the message.
