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.”

Chapter 4: Bittersweet Welcome.

Levi could feel the rabid and vertiginous heartbeat fluttering like the wings of a hummingbird against his own chest, her hair waving around at the rhythm of their footsteps with an indescribable grace. Mike’s footsteps reverberated against the soil as well, his mouth intervening with a bunch of unrefined profanities with the intention of getting Levi back to the forest and leave the girl all alone in the middle of the night. Of course, Levi never showed any sign of stopping, unwilling to hear his pathetic pleas.

He was never a good soldier when it came to following other people’s orders. From way back, he left fear behind.

Hanji followed suit, her soft hands inspecting Mikasa’s little body for bruises or anything that could tell her the girl was in a severe state, any reason justifying the way they found her back in the forest: lying on the grass, completely on her own. The torches of Shiganshina embraced Levi’s face as they entered downtown like some tragic heroes who returned from the shadows after searching for a terrible bear, completely conscious of knowing they certainly were an easy bait, but fearless. The crowd that waited for the soldiers screamed with joy at the sight of the strongest soldier—for then, hunter—of humanity, carrying within his arms the bait that is supposed to bring victory to the village. Their voices got lost in the cold night, the wind howling like a sad wolf and suddenly, for an instant that felt more like an eternity, they were speechless. He could not hear any laugh, any shriek; Levi could not see any smile because almost all of the four hundred eyes there present were glued on the thirteen-year-old girl unconscious in his scarred arms.
