Sweet Addictions 7
“Here, heichou.” Petra set a steaming cup of tea in front of her commanding officer, who set down whatever paperwork he was reading through to look up at her.
“Thank you, Petra.” Levi picked up his cup and put the rim to his lips, sipping softly. “Mm…” he set the cup down as he tasted the bitter sharpness that hit his tongue; just a touch of lemon. “You made it different tonight.”
“I did. I added a squeeze of lemon…you hate it?” Petra cocked her head.
“Actually, I like this kind with lemon. And you know I prefer my teas bitter to sweet…so quit acting like you don’t know what you’re doing.” Levi raised his brows at her, only causing the redhead to giggle.
“Captain I don’t get how you can drink all this tea…” Auruo sipped away at his own cup. “It doesn’t have a whole lot of flavor to it…”
The whole squad stopped what they were doing and stared at the boy, including his captain. Eren only looked at Auruo, then Levi, then back at Auruo again, a look of panic crossing his face.
“Did you really just sit here and tell me tea has no flavor?” Levi rested his chin in his hand, giving his subordinate the stare down.
