It was the final year for seniors of Wall Rose High, the spring air was cool yet warm at the same time. The time itself was ticking down for those who were 18 or if their birthdays were in place 19. The school floors were bustling with activity while they were setting up for the spring culture festival.
Angelique Candide, part of the senior portion of the student council was crossing the hallways with a clipboard in her hand, checking to see how the progress was going with everything. Sighing she paused as she looked out the window to a steadily flowering Sakura tree sitting outside, branches still bare but holding buds until the time was right.
“Eren, if we don’t hurry up with these boxes of decoration supplies, Mikasa’s going to have our heads.” a blonde boy spoke as he walked at a fast clip. “I told you not to carry so much, you can hardly see where you’re going!”
your sister is throwing this huge sleepover in your basement and as i look around your kitchen for snacks you come down the stairs wearing nothing but a pair of low sweatpants
It wasn't the first time she’d spent time with Mikasa out of school, but it was the first time she’d been to her house. The raven almost always insisted that they go to Armin’s house because of her brother, but after this incident, she had no idea why she hadn't come sooner.
Mikasa had sent her upstairs to get some popcorn and some more drinks, but as she was looking through the refrigerator, Armin stopped in her tracks and stared. Why has Kasa been hiding this beautiful creature from me? It was a good thing she didn’t drop the food.
There her brother was, also looking for food, but since it was his house too, he didn’t seem to care what he was wearing. No shirt and a pair a sweatpants that it looked like he just threw on in case someone were there. They hugged his hips in a nice way, securely, but lazily. Adverting her eyes from his hips and well sculpted chest, for his age anyway, she finally made eye contact and his eyes were just as beautiful as his body.
Armin was so stuck in shock that someone like this existed and was right in front of her that she just stood there, with her mouth slightly open, unable to do anything. She couldn’t talk, nor did her legs remember how to move so that she could escape the embarrassment.
Armin sighed as he was finishing making the display for the day, making sure it was nice for the public whenever they walked into the quaint flower shop. He had been able to make it today, and so he close to flood the display with beautiful hues of blue and white. Though displays weren’t always too much, he loved the gradient he made with the colors, white at the top fading down to the darkest of blues. Eyes darted to his watch to check the time only to widen– it was a minute until opening!
Rushing around, he went and made sure everything was presentable, him being the only employee here right now, as he opened the store up. A soft sigh escaped his lips, looking around at the mall that was brimming with a little bit of people. It wasn’t noon yet, it’d be busy then. Well, the food court in the mall this quaint flower shop was in would be, then people would trickle by and then business would really be booming. While he waited for the hustle and bustle of lunch-rushers, he sat in the chair behind the counter, taking out a novel he began to read with a hum, glancing out the window every so often at the tattoo parlor across the way.
He wouldn’t admit it out loud but he saw a really cute worker there. Armin didn’t have the guts to try to approach him, no, what if he thought he was weird? No, he’d stay behind in the little shop, only leaving when his shift ended or during his lunch break, and he would either go home or to the food court for food during those times.
