Is it okay? Is it okay?
Is it okay for me to like this person so much?
Is it okay? Is it okay?
Is it okay for me to trust this person so much?
It’s okay, it’s okay.
If it’s the person you desire.
It’s okay, it’s okay.
If it’s the path you desire. [x]

Eren knows he might be pushing his luck a little with this one, but he keeps the smile firmly planted on his face in spite of Levi’s glowering stare.

“Who goes ice-skating in the summer?”

It’s a shame Levi can’t appreciate the icy delivery of his own question, given their current circumstance. Eren decides not to comment on it, for now.

“Don’t worry about that, we’re not ice-skating,” Eren says calmly, waving his hand. Levi’s eyebrow twitches, and he elaborates, “I tried once when I was a kid, and it ended… badly.” He shakes his head of the memory. “Anyway, I just like to come here and watch other people skate.”

If he’d thought this would make Levi less annoyed, the way he massages his temple lays that hope to rest. Really, Eren can’t help but feel he’s overreacting.

“Who in the hell goes to an ice-skating rink to watch other people skate?” he asks slowly, as if speaking to a child. Eren is tempted to reply just as slowly, but he’s trying to get Levi to work with him here.

“Me, obviously,” he says, plastered-on smile beginning to wobble just a bit. Levi rolls his eyes and casts a look around the place. There are only a few people skating, some cheery pop music playing over the speakers. He can’t help but think Levi looks quite out of place.

As the silence drags on, Levi still surveying their surroundings with a critical eye, Eren attempts to explain himself further. “I don’t know, it’s just… kinda soothing, somehow, to come here.” He pauses, heat prickling in his ears. Suddenly, this whole idea seems entirely stupid. “I mean, we can lea–”

“Shut up,” Levi interrupts, striding past him.
