Episode 1: Who's That Blonde?
A single black metallic door laid closed in front of me. A calming breath filled my lungs. This was it. The moment I had been waiting for.
My hand found the cool metal of the door's handle and pushed down, opening what lay inside for my eyes to feast upon.
The room was filled with people talking in soft murmurs. Most stopped their chatter when I entered, but a few, oblivious to the fact, continued talking.
Not that it bothered me, they were all here of their own free will. And I was there, dripping with excitement to meet them.
I first came across a young blonde who was roughly the same height as me. His bright hair and fair skin clashed greatly with the dull brown of his uniform.
But it was his quiet demeanor that gave it away. "Armin?" I questioned. I hadn't really expected to see him here. It was a pleasant surprise.
I thrust my hand at him, "Alexa Ella at your service!" His own hand slowly slid into mine, "Armin... Arlert." His blue eyes darted in every direction. Crap. I was scaring him.
I blurted the first thing that came to my mind, "How's it feel to be outside Wall Maria?"
Did I just..?
I think I did. *face palm* Armin cringed slightly but a small smile still lifted his lips. "It's amazing," he answered genuinely, "The world is so much bigger than I had imagined."
My own smile and excitement returned. It was best if I left before I said anything else weird. Who was I kidding? That was just me.
