You, on the other hand, actually liked working with Erwin. You found it a pleasant change; it was quieter and more methodical than working with Hanji and less stressful and strenuous than being with Levi. It was actually nice to work sitting down. Moreover, Erwin was far better company than Levi, and you dared admit, Hanji.
You frowned. It was far better like this, anyway; Levi could spend more quality time with Petra without your intervention...or you seeing them. Erwin respected you far better than Levi, was taller than Levi, was more respectable than Levi--
