A young boy thought he was killing the very last of these monsters that invaded the walls while the last thing he expected was one of them to come up behind him and swat him to the ground like a fly. He hit the hard ground roughly, groaning. His gear broke and he was too weak to get up and run away; not that hed have any chance to escape. The boy still rose his blade and faced the beast, he would not surrender.
“Never thought Id die this soon.” He chocked out and coughed out blood as the Titan reached down and lifted him in its hand, squeezing the boy and moving him closer to its mouth which caused even louder groans. “Fucking shit! Let go of me!”
Before he knew it, the Titans grip suddenly loosened and his body fell to the ground again, hitting the floor in an instant as his eyes shut in pain. The Titan fell after him, causing the ground to shudder with its impact.

The cadet wouldnt live, he understood in that moment. “Jean...” He whispered in a pained voice, staring down at the male beneath him.
“Youre g-gonna kick their asses for me, wont you? I believe in yo-you.” He said weakly before his eyes slowly closed and he breathed out, “I b-believe in you, Armin...”
Blue eyes widened in disbelief, tears dripping down his face, “I will...” Came a tiny whisper, the blond pressing their foreheads together and taking a deep breath, “I promise you, I will..."
