oh dang. u know what im gonna make it both lol (mostly aruani tho. yes.)
two miserable people meeting at a wedding au
Armin frowned, leaning his elbow against the cloth-covered table. The wedding hadn’t even officially started yet, but he already wanted to be home. While it was his boss’ wedding, and he was happy for her, he just wasn’t feeling up to any celebrating today. Of course he had to forget taking his allergy medicine today. The spring flora around the outdoor reception was making him miserable.
His irritated eyes glanced up at the groom. He was a short man, but his stare could kill. Armin didn’t know him very well, but Eren and Mikasa did. They said he cared a lot more than his tough, outward appearance showed. Armin would have to
try to talk to him later.
He sighed and glanced at his watch. The actual ceremony wasn’t supposed to start for another half hour. The consequence of arriving early. Speaking of which, he saw Reiner and Bertholdt arriving now. And… someone else? Yeah, a blonde girl, so short he could barely see her behind the two taller men. Who was she? A relative of Reiner maybe? He’d never seen her before. She was pretty though, he could tell even from this distance.
His heart skipped a beat as she started walking towards the same group of tables he was sitting at. He made a conscious effort not to stare at her as she came closer, and sat on the opposite of the pavilion. She… looked miserable, too, slouching in her chair.
Well… he could at least introduce himself, right? Maybe they could share comfort in each others misery. With a sniffle, he stood up and approached her. Her icy blue eyes met his, and again he had to make a conscious effort to take those last few steps. “…Hi.”
