“Meeting your soul mate is like walking into a house you’ve been in before - you will recognize the furniture, the pictures on the wall, the books on the shelves, the contents of drawers: You could find your way around in the dark if you had to.”
― Jandy Nelson, I’ll Give You the Sun
Before the clock strikes noon and his morning coffee turns cold, Eren makes a mental list of all the things he has learned about Mikasa after he spent the night in her bed.
There’s her surname on top of it and he finds it kinda funny, but she’s horrified when he points it out. There’s the fact that she comes from Charleston (“I wouldn’t take you for a Southern Belle,” he says to her and she snorts into her tea. “You mean, I’m not a lady?” she asks with a playful glint in her eyes, which leaves him biting his tongue in a hurry to assure her that yes, of course, she is, indeed, very ladylike). She admits that she had to move to Chicago because her career required that, he tries to show restraint by waiting a full minute before asking what she does for a living.
“Professional gymnastics.” She bites on her lips and blushes a little when he whistles, impressed.
“I knew you were fit,” says Eren triumphantly and she laughs at that, scrunching her nose up adorably. He wishes he could bottle up this sound and keep it always in his pocket, for rainy days.
