Faster. You had to run faster
There was no telling what he would do when he got his hands on you, he was almost as scary as Titan and you cursed your luck because today had to be the day where you delivered paperwork to Erwin's office at 3 AM and of course, today HAD to be that one day in the month where Eren literally tracked you down while he was sleeping and decided to terrorize you
You kicked the door open and dashed in carrying a large stack of papers ignoring everyone's confused looks when you yelled "Leave me alone!" to a sleepy Eren who STILL hadn't given up on chasing you
"No! Let me love you!" he lunged forward wrapping his arms around your waist knocking you down. Your arms were outstretched with the stack of papers still in tact when Hanji started cackling at your misfortune while a glaring Erwin took the papers out of your hands (He wasn't glaring at you but at Eren, why? you had no clue) and Mike tried to pry Eren off of your waist. Keyword here being "tried"
"You were right ________, Eren really does track you down in his sleep!"
"I told you so! HELP!" you tried to crawl away from him but he stubbornly hung on while swatting Mike away with his free hand
"Hanji get him off of me!" you wailed while Hanji fell over cackling louder than ever as Eren started sniffing your hair
"Mmmmm Strawberries" He mumbled snuggling his face into your neck and you blushed as red as a Strawberry and Eren finally let go of you allowing you to stand up and just as you were about to dive behind a smirking Mike, Eren scooped you up and made his way to the door with a squirming you still in his arms until you yelled
"TITANS, THEY'RE EVERYWHERE!"
Eren dropped you and you landed ungracefully on your butt as he flailed his arms running away screaming "TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!"
Everyone watched him leave before all eyes flicked back to you still on the floor
"Well there goes any chance of me getting any sleep...Can I go- Hanji, are you alright?"
The brunette was rolling on the floor shaking in silent laughter as you all stared down at her. Mike sighed turning to you "Dismissed"
"Thank you" You saluted and walked out closing the door but just as you were about to leave you heard Mike talking to Erwin mentioning your name
"Are you sure ________ is your ________, she could just be a look alike"
"No" Erwin disagreed and you pressed your ear closer to the door "It's definitely her"
"I even did a background check, it says that _________ had an accident when she was 8 and so she can't remember some bits of her past, the rest she can remember" Hanji sounded serious for a person who was cackling a minute ago
"Meaning that she forgot about me"
"...Erwin...are you pouting?"
"You know what Hanji, I think he is"
"Did you know when _____ was 5, she used to say that she'd marry me so that she could stay with me forever?"
"She was 5. Every little kid says that" Mike was trying not to laugh
"She's my cute and innocent, sweet little girl."
Here Hanji giggled
"She's my pride and joy! And I am NOT going to lose her to anyone"
"That explains why you were glaring at Eren"
"Well be civil to him Erwin, Levi gives him a hard time enough as it is"
"Don't get me started on Levi. I was THIS close to throttling him. How DARE that midget? _________ better still be pure otherwise we're going to need to arrange a funeral service and this office is going to have the midget's head mounted on my wall, right there"
You'd heard enough and as quickly and as quietly as you could, you ran back to your room ignoring Eren screaming about Titans
Needless to say, you didn't get any sleep at all
When Hanji entered her office around noon she was shocked to see her office cleaner than it had ever been with the papers on her desk neatly organised with little sticky notes on them saying what they were, all the stains on her desk scrubbed off and it was left clean and smelling like lemon polish, the floor had been scrubbed down and mopped and also smelling of Citrus fruits. Her bookcase was arranged alphabetically (For the first time in forever), dusted down and polished. Even that annoying wobble of her desk was fixed and Hanji looked down at the stacks of papers that were directly in front of her that were labelled with two cute sticky notes saying "What you need to do" and the other "What has been done"
Luckily, the stack that had been done was a LOT bigger than what she needed to do and that was when the scent of Coffee caught her nose and she looked to the windowsill where a large cup of coffee sat with a sticky note attached to it and next to it was a plate of cookies
"Good morning Hanji!
Yep, I cleaned your office and did most of your paperwork because you were in the lab and since you skipped breakfast, I brought up some cookies that I baked (they're Chocolate chip!) and some coffee. I hope that the coffee is still warm and the chips are still gooey when you read this because they taste better like that.
Anyway, I'm off to 3DMG practice so I'll talk to you later
~Your favorite minion _______"
Setting the note aside she sipped at the coffee which was lukewarm and just the way she liked it and once she bit at the cookie her eyes grew wide
On the opposite side of the castle, you looked up from your soup and everyone looked at you. A minute later Hanji appeared at the door and made a beeline to you jumping over tables and benches with a plate of cookies in hand and hugged you putting it down
"Thank you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much for cleaning my office, the cofeee and cookies and for doing most of my paperwork for me! YOU'RE THE BEST ASSISTANT EVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!"
"You're cutting off her air. Again"
"AAAAAH! SORRY ____________!"
You were released from Hanji's "Super tight hug of doom"(as you dubbed it) and gasped a quick thanks to your savior Mike before Hanji turned on you
"I didn't know you could bake cookies ________"
All eyes were on you
"...It's not important-"
"Of course it is! Now listen closely my favourite little minion, I order you to make me a while batch of Titan shaped cookies!"
"Is it necessary?"
"Yes. Now off you trot"
"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" You fell to your knees fake sobbing while Mike patted your head sympathetically and glared at Hanji who sighed
"Fine, you can take a few minions with you to help"
"Yes, you can have the test of the day off from the chores that Corporal Shorty gives. Pick three!"
"Ok I pick Mikasa, Annie and...Sasha"
Hanji giggled clapping her hands together "Off you pop, shoo"
"I'm really sorry about this guys, you can go out through the back door of you want" You apologized as you measured out some flour
"You kidding me? Not doing chores is the best thing that's happened to me since that loaf of bread that I ate today, mmmmmm"
"It's alright" Mikasa said softly while Annie got straight down to business with a "What do you need us to do?"
After a good few hours of measuring, mixing, baking and decorating, you walked away from the oven where the last batch of Titan shaped cookies were being baked in with Reiner following you around, a lecherous grin on his face
How he got in here?
He convinced Hanji that you needed his help and Hanji agreed after looking over the muscular hulk of a soldier but to date, the blonde had been of no use at all. Heck even Sasha was more useful than him (After you, Mikasa and Annie had swatted her hands away from the icing, the batter and the chocolate chips multiple times)
While you were lost in your own world, you didn't notice Annie and Mikasa glaring at the smirking blonde before they both smacked his hands away from your butt for the millionth time in that kitchen.
You, being your oblivious self, were completely unaware of Reiner's lecherous grin this as you skipped around humming to a song only you could hear swaying your hips to it as you mixed the icing until smooth before swatting Sasha's hands away from the bowl before pouring it into a piping bag and icing a Mikasa shaped cookie
You'd done one for everyone, even Commander Erwin, Mike, Levi and his squad as well as Hanji's. You just hoped that they'd like it and that the cookies looked like them but from Mike's descriptions, you had them spot on. You were quite proud of your creations which you had dubbed "The Cookie Corps""Are you doing me now?" a hot breath ghosted over your earlobe making you shudder.
"Shoo Reiner, I've done you already" You shooed him away but he just placed his chin on your shoulder so he could see what you were doing
"Am I making you...uncomfortable?"
You tried to stop yourself from blushing and stuttering as he smirked but you hardened your resolve and smacked him away. Annie, a thousand blessings on her head, yanked Reiner away from you glaring at the blonde as she dragged him to a corner and hissed something to him once she saw him
Mikasa, on the other hand, followed you around to make sure that Reiner didn't creep up on you again, speaking of which, the blonde was working with Sasha while being supervised by a scowling Annie
A good few hours later you sat in an arm chair completely and utterly exhausted when a wild Jean appeared smirking
"________, sweetie! It's so good to see you" he paused for a moment to sniff your hair and licked his lips "You smell as delicious as cookies"
You shot Jean the dirtiest look you could muster in your tired state as Mikasa and Annie walked in "What do you want Jean?"
"I was just wondering when you started smuggling oranges out of the kitchen?"
He gestured to your chest and then you clicked on and flushed a bright red before lunging at him and beating the heck out of him
When you were done, he was to be confined to the infirmary for two weeks. Luckily you weren't punished for it and Annie and Mikasa looked pretty proud of you
"SHORTY KEEPS STARING AT __________! AWWWWWW IT LOOKS LIKE LIL RAVIOLI HAS A CRUSH ON _________!"
All eyes flicked to you in surprise as you blushed profusely and covered your face with your hands before you ran off and made a beeline for your room and instead of locking it, you dived straight under your bed burying your face in your arms
' Oh my God...How could you Hanji?'
It wasn't until about an hour later when the door opened. From your space under the bed right against the wall you saw two pairs of boots
"She HAS to be in here" that was Eren's voice so the person with him had to Armin "We know you're in here _________"
"Come out, we're all worried about you" Armin called out looking in the closet while Eren looked in in the bathroom
"Well she's not here...Wait, we haven't checked under the bed yet"
'Damn you Jaeger'
Sure enough, they knelt down and looked under the bed to see you
"There you are!"
"What do you guys want?" You asked cutting to the chase
"We wanna talk because all of the girls are having a private meeting and Mikasa and Annie ordered us guys to look for you"
"And you've found me so shoo"
"Nope" Eren had wore a shit-eating grin that matched Jean's "Now scoot over"
"We're not leaving until you come out from under there" Armin declared "So we might as well get comfortable"
So there you lay under the bed squished between Armin and Eren in silence until
"This is cozy"
"Yeah?" He turned to you, turquoise eyes locking onto yours in the dim light
Eren pouted and Armin snickered
"Dammit I gotta take a leak"
"What the hell Eren?!" you scooted over to Armin's side fixing a blushing Eren with a disgusted look "Get in the bathroom and don't make a mess!"
While Eren was in the bathroom you turned to Armin and smiled "Let's do a runner"
"But what about Eren?"
"I hear Hanji put in more books in the library..."
So you two were in the library when you heard Eren's angered yell of your names
Armin grabbed your hand and rushed out of the library with you in tow passing a confused Erwin, an annoyed Levi who poked his head out of his office and a giggling Hanji before you looked back to see the brunette hot on your tail
"HE'S GAINING ON US!" you yelled picking up speed and so did Armin and you are so close to the exit when Eren tackled you two to the ground
"What the hell was that ________?"
"You have to admit that it was fun" You giggled from your spot under Eren when he turned to Armin who was sitting next to you
"She told you the were more books in the library, didn't she?"
"Yeah...they were so good"
Eren only rolled his eyes before letting you up and you were about to do another runner when he flipped you over his shoulder
"HEY! PUT ME DOWN EREN! THIS IS NOT HOW YOU TREAT A YOUNG LADY!"
Eren ignored you and walked back to your room passing everyone again who looked confused as you talked to Armin who stayed a few paces behind Eren to talk to you until he set you on your bed
"Well it's almost curfew so we gotta go before Corporal Windex has our heads so Goodnight _________"
It was time for combat practice again when Hanji took over in overseeing the training when you looked around wondering where the Corporal was, luckily, you didn't have to ask the question since Eren asked it for you
"Oh, he'll be around later because he's in a meeting with Erwin right now so I volunteered to take over" Hanji rubbed her hands together "OK my miniature minions, let us begin"
You had been paired up with Mina, a friend of Annie's, and had beaten her thanks to the moves that the Corporal had taught you last time before things got...kooky
"Hey ________" You looked up to see Reiner calling your name
"You wanna train together, I can make it worth your time" Here he waggled his thin eyebrows and fingers. Knowing him out was something perverted but before you could respond someone unexpected stepped in
You glanced at Marco in surprise as he smiled at you "I think training with Reiner is a bad idea, he’s so big he’d crush you. If you wanted to train with me however that would be fine, I’d go a lot slower and gentler than him, I promise.”
"Ok then" Hanji interrupted "You're all free to go now, shoo. Oh! And Commander Pixis is here too so all of you be on your best behavior. _________ come to my office in two hours, I need to talk to you"
You nodded and dispersed with the rest and went back to your room but little did you know, someone was watching you with furrowed eyebrows as you trained
"Erwin, are you stalking little girls now?" a surprised voice asked
