Hilda wondered what the other districts were like. She’d read about them in school, but it wasn’t much information, and it wasn’t the same as living in any of the other districts or even just visiting. “Even just going to other districts in Wall Rose seems exciting.” she said. Until being conscripted, she hadn’t ventured far from Krolva. The farthest she’d traveled until recently had been her uncle’s farm, which was only a couple of hours away from Krolva.

“Sure. Do you want to ask about volunteering after we’re finished studying, then?”
she asked, having forgotten that they were supposed to be studying. It was the illustrations of berries on the pages of the book in front of her that reminded her. “Do you know who we supposed to see about volunteering, anyway?”

“Maybe, if they’ll let us go into town one of these weekends...” Hilda murmured. That would be nice. She wanted to see more of Trost- she hadn’t seen much of it on the trip here. “It’d be nice just to have a change of scenery. Anyway, does your father travel to the other walls?” The idea of traveling seemed exciting to Hilda. She knew there were a lot of restrictions on getting to Wall Sina, but she was certain that merchants would be allowed to sell their wares there, though they probably had to be approved.

“Okay, let’s do it.”
she nodded. “How soon do you want to volunteer?”

“I wonder what the markets here in Trost are like.” Hilda said, wondering what kind of things unique to Trost she would find that she couldn’t get back home, as well as what things unique to Krolva couldn’t be found here. “Does your father sell things at a market, then, or does he own a store?”

“Maybe we can volunteer for kitchen duty?” she suggested. “That way we’ll be guaranteed to get it at the same time, and we’d probably get it sooner.” She normally wouldn’t volunteer to do chores, but she knew she was going to have to do it eventually anyway, and this way she wouldn’t have to worry about getting kitchen duty with someone she didn’t like.

Hilda sat back in her seat. “So you’ve been to a lot of markets in Utopia?” she asked. She hadn't been to very many outside of the local market back home. She could almost smell the delicious scents that wafted from the stalls, and she never left without buying something to eat, whether it was candied fruit or a warm pretzel.

“Potato dumplings it is, then.” she smiled. “It feels like ages since I’ve had that.” It hadn’t been that long, really, but time here seemed to pass more slowly than it did back home.

“We don’t grow plums either, but sometimes they had them at the market in town.” Hilda stretched out. She could still picture the market, and the plums sold there- both red and black. She preferred the black plums- the red ones were a little too tart for her taste, though right now she’d take even a red one.

“So, are you thinking bread and potatoes separately, or potato bread?”
she asked. It sounded like separately, but she wanted to make sure. “Or maybe we could make potato dumplings...” If they had the ingredients for bread, and they had potatoes, then they could probably make potato dumplings.

“Do plums grow in Utopia?” Hilda asked. They weren’t particularly abundant in Krolva, but there were enough for her to have eaten some, though not very often- a rare, special treat.

She sat up straighter at Mara’s suggestion. “That’s a good idea! What do you think we should make? Hm...” she paused. “Maybe we should see what ingredients we’d have before deciding on that...”

“I think everybody wishes that.” Hilda said wistfully. “Like, the way they do when they die, just turning into steam and evaporating, so we’d know they were dead and gone for good.” She sighed, knowing they wouldn’t be lucky enough for the Titans to all suddenly die at once.

Pushing the thought of Titans away, she turned the page of her book then, glancing down at a drawing of a plum. “It’s been a long while since I’ve had a plum. Even a drawing of one looks good right now.”

“Maybe, I guess some of them have had to deal with Titans recently. Maybe I’ll ask about who actually studies Titans in class.” Hilda frowned. It seemed that everything had changed in these past months. She knew she was luckier than others- she hadn’t lost her home or her family like so many from Wall Maria. But here she was, which was a huge change in and of itself. Now it felt like nowhere was safe- that colossal Titan could strike Wall Rose at any moment. Now joining the Garrison or even the Military Police was no guarantee that you’d never face a Titan.

“I’d imagine seeing a Titan in real life, most people are going to either think how can they can escape from it, or how they’re going to kill it.”
she said with a rueful smile, releasing the ends of her hair from her fingers. Her natural instinct would probably be to flee rather than fight, but now that she was conscripted, fleeing probably wasn’t going to be an option for her.

Hilda supposed it would be a difficult subject to study in the real world, as part of work, to try and figure out all the whys and hows of Titans, but as far as classes in training went, it was actually one of the easiest subjects for her, partly because she found it so engaging.

"I'm not sure if I'd actually be going into that kind of work since I'm leaning towards the Garrison. I'd guess the Survey Corps would handle that since they're the ones who are more proactive with Titans and all."
Hilda said, twisting the ends of her hair between her forefinger and thumb. "Reading about them is fascinating, but... I don't know how I'd handle it if I saw one in real life!" She shuddered at the thought of it.

“That sounds really nice.” Hilda murmured. “I love the smell of fresh basil.” She bit her lip when Mara guessed that her family would be selling more potatoes in her and her brother’s absence, not quite sure what to say. Being away from home, wondering what everyone did while she was gone felt strange and sad, and she wondered if it was the same for Mara.

“I guess my favorite is Titan lore and anatomy, especially the lore.”
she answered. “I mean, Titans are terrifying to think about, but they’re such a mystery that it’s interesting to know more about them and try to figure out just where they came from and why their habits are what they are.”

"What did you grow?" she asked, curious. She was guessing vegetables and herbs. That's mostly what grew in the small garden out in the backyard at home. "Picking fruit sounds a lot better than most of the stuff we're doing here." she said with a wry smile. "I guess we might get to do that in survival skills classes."

All this talk of food was hunger-inducing, and dinner wasn't for another couple of hours, so she decided to change the topic. "So, which class do you like best so far?" she asked.

Hilda wasn’t so sure it was fine, but she didn’t argue the point. She just kept on pacing back and forth, trying to distract herself with other thoughts, thoughts that kept inevitably turning to the fact that Utopia was overrun with Titans, which turned into thoughts about how much worse the situation could get. So she ran over the possibilities of who was doing this and how and why- her mind was going to keep coming back to this, but trying to figure it all out was a lot less nerve-wracking than thinking about the outcome of this, and if there was anything to catch Hilda’s attention it was an unanswered question. She was so preoccupied with her thoughts that she nearly jumped when she heard the sound of her name.

“Uh, yeah, sure.” she nodded at Nack’s suggestion that she keep an ear out. Presumably for the person- or worse, people- responsible for this. She wasn’t so sure that just one person did this. With her blades ready in case someone burst out at her, she listened carefully for any strange noises that might indicate someone had gotten in or was already here and lurking nearby. The latter possibility in particular made her skin crawl. It would be terrible either way, but the thought that someone had been watching and waiting to strike the entire time was especially creepy. She shook that thought off, as it wasn’t a good idea to keep dwelling on worst case scenarios like that, especially when she was supposed to be listening out for any potential intruders.

Her ears were open, but all she heard was Farran and Nack working on the brake, until finally, the damaged gear was removed. She sheathed her blades as Farran spoke to her. “I-I  guess you could say that.” she stuttered, moving over near where he was standing. It made her incredibly nervous.  So many lives were partly in her hands. It was incredibly daunting, and made her stomach feel a little queasy just thinking about it. She looked over at the gear, before her eyes darted back to Farran, waiting for the go-ahead to get started.

"Mostly pies and tarts, sometimes she'd use the preserves in thumbprint cookies." Hilda answered, stretching her legs a little. "I always liked getting to help make the thumbprint cookies." What she wouldn't give for one of those cookies right now.

"It'd be so nice to have blackberries here."
she sighed. "They'd certainly liven up breakfast." The meals here were so plain compared to what she was used to at home, and it was always the same stuff. "Did you have any fruit bushes or trees near your house?" she asked.

Hilda’s face fell at Nack’s answer to her question as to whether or not he and Farran had made any progress in removing the damaged brake. She knew better than to think they would have succeeded in removing it by now, but she had dared to at least hope that they had made even a little progress, but then again, it seemed that Nack had been trying to do it on his own, and Farran didn’t seem to have made much headway in his attempts to remove it earlier.

Still, seeing how hopeful Farran was at the sight of the replacement brake gave her a brief moment of hope herself, before she reminded herself that the damaged brake had to come off first, and until then, the replacement wasn’t any good. She let out a sigh of frustration. “I’m sorry I wasn’t able to find a spare crowbar.” she apologized. There should have been one, but maybe the one being used was the spare and a replacement hadn’t come in yet.

But she felt a little better once Farran stepped in to help with a hammer. But it didn’t stop her from pacing around nervously, as she tended to do when she was worried. She supposed there were worse ways to deal with the fear surging through her right then. The fear that Utopia would fall, taking her and her friends and other classmates with it.

And it wouldn’t stop there. If Utopia fell, it was likely that all of Wall Rose would be invaded by Titans in the same way Wall Maria had just a few short years ago. Everyone at home… she stopped herself there, it wasn’t a good idea to follow that train of thought, even in a terrible situation like this. She took a deep breath and wiped her hands on her thighs again. She might not be able to do anything until the tampered brake was off, but she still needed to keep her cool. A cool head was essential in a crisis like this, after all. At least it was for her. She took looks over at the brake to see the progress Nack and Farran were making, but said nothing, as she didn’t want to distract them.

When it came to reading for fun, Hilda preferred to do so with no interruptions or distractions to pull her from the story she was immersed in. But she didn't mind company at all when she was studying. Having someone to study with kept her focused, and of course it always helped to have someone around to discuss the material with.

She looked up from her book at the sound of Mara's voice. "Yeah, I ate them a lot back home." she said with a little smile. "We have blackberry bushes in our backyard. Picking blackberries so my mother could use them in desserts or preserves was one of the few chores I didn't mind doing." Maybe she'd ask her mother to send some blackberry preserves in her next letter, because now she was kind of craving them.
