Your voice couldn’t find purchase on the blank walls and reverberated through the empty streets. You were on the phone with your worrywart of a father. Despite the fact you had moved out over three months ago, he always found it was necessary to call you regularly just to make sure you weren’t dead.
But you were twenty-two years old; you were perfectly capable of handling yourself! You knew he meant well, but gods above, sometimes you just wanted the man to leave you be. Currently he’d been talking your ear off about getting home safe. You’d only just got off work and the sun had long since set. Your father, bless his soul, had known all too well of the unfriendly part of the neighbourhood you lived in.
“And make sure you have your pepper spray ready! Do you have your pepper spray? The one I sent you?”
“Yes dad, you sent me like fifty of them,” you replied exasperatedly.
“Good, good!” he praised.
I was running. If they caught me my life would be nothing more than a living hell. You see I came from a noble family that lived in the inner wall, wall Sina. The youngest of five children all of which being male and I was the only female it was only a matter of time till my parents wanted to sell me off to the highest bidder. The highest bidder turned out to be nothing more than a man that was three times my age and the most abusive, vile man I'd ever met. So I ran.
The Military Police were notified as soon as it was clear that I was gone, which wasn't long after I ran. The disguise wasn't much but it worked for a short while. I'd disguised myself to look like a male, for once in my life I was happy to be flat chested. I hid my (H/L) (H/C) hair under a cap, swapping a dress for black pants, a white dress shirt and one of my brothers red waist coats. I don't want to go back, I don't want to marry him, I want a life, my own life to make my own decisions. Was it so much to
“Y-You’re not Eren!”
As if on cue, his hoodie fell and it revealed the last person you’d thought you’d see:
You immediately let go of his hand and back away frightened.
Reiner looked to you with menacing gold eyes and smirked. “What’s the matter babe? You look like you’ve seen a ghost?” He stepped closer to you; scarred face still smiling.
You didn’t respond. ‘How is he here?! I never showed him my home! Plus didn’t Eren beat him to a pulp days ago?’ As you thought, your body turned to run.
“Eh! Where do you think you’re going?”
Your sneakers smacked the dark pavement. Your breath became labored. You’d never think Reiner would come back. You took a cautious look back when you ran. To your dismay, Reiner was right on your tail. He reached for you and you screamed.
With a harsh shriek of your sneakers, you turned a harsh left.
To your relief you narrowly missed Rein
You tapped your pencil against the desk bored.
The impulse you chuck the pencil to your professor’s head was huge.
Currently Ms. Bhitch was teaching one of your most hated subjects in the world: Physics.
“And the velocity of the ball from point A at the base of the building is….” She rambled on and on.
“Uuuuugh!” You slammed your pencil down and when you felt like running out of the room someone came in.
The door was slammed open and immediately everyone in the class jerked up. Even the professor was startled.
You whipped your head around and you were stunned.
This guy… he was so handsome!
His raven black hair and pale skin was a perfect contrast. His gorgeous features and thug attire were enough to set off all the girls in the room. But that wasn’t what captivated you. It was his stern gray eyes.
He turned his steely gaze to you briefly before he went to sit in the back.
You shivered. He seemed to ha
