Levihan week day 5: Blue
“My favorite color is blue.”
“I said my favorite color is blue.”
“Where the hell did that come from, shitty glasses?”
“I simply felt like saying it. Blue is the color of the sky and supposedly the color of the ocean. It makes me dream of the world outside the walls and a life with no titans.”
“I thought you would cry in a world with no titans.”
“With no titans to study I would just observe the world itself, along with other creatures, and the ocean.”
“Why the hell do you even have a favorite color when we could die any day?”
“For just that reason, I could die at any moment so might as well die with a favorite color.”
“I knew you would say that. But next time you see blue just look at it for a moment and maybe you can see why I like it so much.”
But he did. As he walked through a field one day to clear his head he passed a cluster of flowers. Then he hesitated, before bending down and peering at a small blue flower.
It had beautiful shades of azure, turquoise, and aqua, all shimmering and glistening in the sunlight.
Carefully folding his fingers around its delicate stem, he plucked it from the earth.
Turning around, he headed back towards where Hanji was, flower in hand.
