Here I was, sitting in the messhall sipping my tea peacefully, surrounded by rowdy squad leaders as Hanji excitedly spewed out pointless words about titans; even though none of her words were sinking in.
Everyone around me produced muffled background noise as I enjoyed the company of my own thoughts. I scoffed at their ignorance; ignoring them all, I remembered back to the first time I ever saw the dear General (f/n).
It was shortly after Erwin had brought me to the Survey Corps, at the time I had no real intention of sticking around. I had left my companions to do their chores as I went for a stroll around the compound; in search for something of interest.
When it occurred to me that I had already circled the area twice I found myself leaning against a wall in an area that was "out of bounds" for cadets. The wall faced a field of luscious green grass and in the distance I could see a single solemn tree covered in blooming flowers; the time of year was Spring, of course.
