(Warning! It's a sad open roleplay) -
Aria was at the castle when she realized Keith and Shiro weren't there. She flew her way to them, soon spotting sparks flying and destruction surrounding the two. Before Shiro could land another strike on Keith, Aria jumped in the middle. "Spare him! Fight me instead! I'm not as valuable as he is. I'll risk my life to keep him alive." Aria looked turned to Keith and smiled softly, hoping to give him reassurance. "It's time I prove my worth to the team and our name. Victory/Knowledge or death is the Galra way. I lived by it without knowing it. Return to the castle. I'll bring him back one way or another." Although Aria's voice should sincerity and determination, tears filled her eyes as she gave a final glance at the one person she cherished more than the team. "You'll thank me later, Keith."
