You sat inside an abandoned building, cowering from the humanlike beasts that lurked outside. Your gear broke, leaving you helpless and alone. Every noise made you jump, every shadow made you shake with fear. You put her head on your knees and thought; you were going to die here.
You shook your head. If you were to die now, you would die fighting. It would be not only for yourself, but your whole squad who died imbued with the courage you never had. You pushed yourself off the ground and walked over to a window. The window was shielded by a heavy curtain which you grabbed with your trembling hand. As you pulled it away from the window, you froze. Looking in on the other side of the window was a titan. It looked at you with its dull eyes. The titan broke the window with ease. It gripped your waist and pulled you out of the house. You didn’t scream for help, knowing that no one would come for you. The titan lifted you up to its twisted face. It was at that moment you realized; they were just as human as everyone else. You shut your eyes to that deranged thought. You waited for the titan to eat you. ‘One…two…three…’ You counted. You stopped at eight. Why weren’t you dead yet? The titan’s grip loosened and within seconds you were on the ground. The titan was beside you, dead. You saw a shadow resembling a hand. You flinched before looking up. Reiner was standing there with his hand held out to you. “Thanks.” You said, taking his hand.
He pulled you to your feet. “I’m glad I found you when I did. If I hadn’t then you’d be dead. What happened?”
“My gear broke.” You didn’t explain anymore than that. You were angry that you hid like a coward and you weren’t about to tell Reiner about it.
You squeaked when he hugged you. “I won’t let you die.” He said.
You smiled, “Thanks, Reiner.” You blushed as he kissed your forehead. From that point on, you knew you were going to be safe.
