Chapter 5: A Tiny Love.
Eren blushed, flicking nervously and trying to find the courage to ask.
“Uhm, you… you’ll return tomorrow? You don’t have to do it, you just can—”
Mikasa smiled. She gave him a smile that made his heart stop unexpectedly. What the hell was that? A… heart attack? His father used to say that heart attacks happened when the heart stopped its beating. Eren could’ve sworn by all the gods and stars above, that his heart stopped breathing and living and feeling at the moment Mikasa smirked at him in the most beautiful ways. But a heart attack provokes death. And in that specific and caressing moment, Eren never felt more alive.
No. That couldn’t be a heart attack. It was something else, it was—
“I will always return.”
