The initial hike overall had been relaxing for Floch. He didn't mind getting out once in a while to enjoy nature and get some fresh air. It beat ODM training, and hiking wasn't exactly something Floch struggled with. So it had been fun. The cadets were being taken up to some smaller lake. Tents were brought along so he could only assume it was an overnight thing.

Upon reaching the lake, Floch had stopped to take in the view. It wasn't as large was The Great Lake, but it was still nice in its own way. He had watched as the cadets split up, starting to do their own thing. Floch had stayed away from the main group, watching from afar. He wasn't close with any of the cadets here. His only friend had been Sandra and she was absent from this hike. Needless to say, he was uncomfortable without her by his side.

He knew standing around wasn't going to accomplish anything or help settle his nerves. He started to walk towards the group, eyeing them silently. Axel and Cass had settled down to fish around the lake. And it seemed Axel had wanted to turn it into some sort of competition. Could be fun to join in if he were any good at fishing. He's only tried it once before and had little success. So he'd rather not try again and scare off the fish for the others.

"Be careful around the lake. We don't need you two falling in." Floch called out to Axel and Cass. Not that it really mattered if they did, they were close enough to the edge where they could easily climb back up. And if neither of them could swim, perhaps it would be a problem then. They could swim, right?

Pushing those thoughts away, his gaze traveled over to Sylvia. Another cadet he knew little of. All he knew was she came from a rich family. That, and she stared at Reiner far too much. How the guy remained oblivious to her crush was beyond him. But he knew that wasn't his place to intervene.

I bet you five mushrooms that you don't.

A quiet chuckle left Floch and he made his way over to Sylvia. "Are they poisonous?" he asked, a faint smirk tugging at his lips. He crouched down beside her, watching as she gathered the mushrooms. It was impressive how well she knew fauna and could tell different plants apart from each other. It was knowledge he certainly lacked in.

She believed him. Eren was capable of doing it; all he needed was a little bit of confidence and he'd be able to master the ODM gear, no doubt about it. Her eyes followed the hooks, then looked right back at him. "You got it." It seemed he had it in the first half, Mikasa looking at him with a proud smirk.

"Eren!" She fired the hooks at the wall once again, reeling herself towards him, focused. It didn't take long for her to get to the spot where he was and stopped right below him. "Are you okay?"

She had a feeling he'd be pissed off if she'd grab and pull him down with her.

Bertholdt was soft-spoken, with the sort of voice that didn't seem all that capable of anger or upset, at least in Eren's opinion. There were plenty of cadets in their year who had seen death march towards them as they struggled out of Wall Maria. With that came several types of people. Those who were so overly emotional that they could break out in tears within seconds, like Eren. Others who seemed hardly to shed a tear and were seemingly incapable of feeling it, and others yet that kept it contained within them, a storm brewing and waiting to be released.

Eren's tears settled quickly. He'd found that since the fall of the Wall. He'd always been very emotional but it was to a new height. Perhaps it was his body's way of coping?

Whatever the reason, he listened in silence and let himself calm down, knowing the tears would stop flowing. Then the ride of emotions would return. It was inevitable, really.

"It's just frustrating," he said, half-replying and half... just spilling his guts. "Knowing how much people give up but everyone is too wrapped up in their own lives to give a damn about everyone else. And everyone's always judging the Scouts for dying for them, as if that's really what they're doing! It's not fair... it's not fair how much the Scouts give up for everyone else and only ever get shit in return."

More than that, it wasn't fair that people could be so selfish. How could anyone be content with being trapped in the Walls?

Eren drew in a sharp breath. "We're not meant to be caged up in here. I know we're not! Why can't anyone see that?"

Reiner nodded the once, giving him a reassuring smile. "I know, Eren. It's fine." he said. If it hadn't been an accident, they wouldn't be having this conversation right now. As much as he liked the guy, he would have quickly responded by throwing a punch Eren's way if it was the boy's intention to start some shit between them. Thankfully that wasn't the case. He scoffed a bit and smirked. "I would have been worried about you if you were trying to start a fight. You know I would have kicked your ass." he said. His tone was light and playful, but there was a hint of a warning in there as well.

Reiner chuckled at the protests from Eren. He lightly batted the broom away from him as Eren prodded him in the stomach with it. "You should. I'd love to see you try and take anyone down with it." he said. It would be an amusing sight if nothing else, though Eren would gain nothing from using a broom in combat training.

A mischievous grin broke out on his lips. "Better yet, you should take on Annie using it." he suggested, eyeing the boy. Annie was undefeated so far. Eren didn't stand a chance before, he certainly wouldn't now. Not unless he had been memorizing her moves and had figured out counters to them.

"After all, she was trained in combat without weapons. She wouldn't know what to do if you charged at her with that broom." he teased, lightly ruffling the boy's hair.

He was alright. Phew. And, by the touch on his shoulder, Reiner wasn't planning to murder him for smacking him in the face. Yet, anyway. Unless it was to get his guard down? But nah... Reiner was his friend.

"It was an accident, I swear," he assured him, still apologetic, and more than a little panicked still. Of all the people he could accidentally hit, it was kind, bear-like Reiner. Honestly, he wouldn't be surprised if Reiner got him back for it later in combat. As much as the guy was friendly to him and seemed to look out for him, he was strong. Maybe stronger than Mikasa.

Eren relaxed, finally, at the glint he saw in his eyes. He broke into a grin and then protested, "H-hey!" Looking at the broom, he picked it up and playfully prodded him extremely gently in the abdomen. "Careful. I might take you up on that!" the boy joked, setting the broom against the desk so it wouldn't accidentally end up hitting either of them.

She did it so easily! Part of his childish self wanted to rage on watching her climb the height of the Wall with hardly a struggle, as if she wasn't even focusing on what she was doing. As he stood there, gazing up the nearly endless Wall, he saw her rise and rise and grow smaller as she distanced himself from him. It felt like that might well be the furthest they'd ever been from one another.

His chest spiked with anxiety and he calmed himself as she swung back down to him. Just in time.

With round eyes, he looked at her for a moment and made something between a 'pfft' and a scoff sound, trying to make it look like he was completely confident in himself to manage it. "Yeah. Ok. Easy." It didn't feel like it.

He aimed his hand controllers and settled into the stance they'd been told to, trying to make it look as casual as she'd aimed. He didn't quite nail it. Eren swallowed. Okay. He could do this. He drew a breath, then fired his hooks and started reeling them in before kicking in his gas. Keeping his balance was easy enough, but keeping momentum seemed harder for him. As he managed to reach the height where his hooks were embedded he struggled to retract the hooks quickly enough.

There was a brief moment where it felt as though he were floating in the air - his gas dying down, his hooks returning to their controllers. Then he started going down.

"No, no, nonono!" he yelled, panicking as he tried to fire the hooks again. Only one released, meaninglessly bumping off of the wall. He kept falling, and then the second hook darted out and slammed into the Wall. He kept falling, the ground closing in, and then it went taut.

Training helped her focus. Not only that - it was a form of therapy. It felt as if all of her frustrations were gone as soon as she could just do things. Training with the ODM gear was probably her favourite part; embedding the hook, then letting the ropes do the rest. It felt as if she was flying.

Even though other cadets began to leave, she didn't plan on going just yet. She needed more practice to protect Eren. Sure, killing titans was on her list as well, but the real reason she had joined the Cadet Corps was him after all.

Looking up the Wall, she heard her name without paying attention to the rest. "Huh?" she mumbled, subconsciously holding onto her red scarf; it took her a few seconds to figure what he had asked. "Of course." She aimed, then fired the grapple hooks at the wall and activated the gas mechanism. She reeled herself without the slightest effort, closing her eyes while doing so. It felt so freeing.

Not paying attention, she managed to get to the top of the tall wall before swinging herself back towards Eren.

She landed on her legs and removed a lock of hair from her face. "Now you do it."

[ late summer 845 ]
[ training grounds ]

Mastering the ODM gear was a lot, lot harder than Eren had thought it would be. Not only had he struggled to even hold his damn balance (though he'd pointed out to everybody it had only been thanks to the malfunctioning equipment, people still teased him about it), he was having a hard time nailing the basic training for it. It seemed as though he struggled in everything.

Mikasa was strong. Armin was smart. What was Eren..?

He didn't give up for one moment. The current stage of their training involved practising reeling up a sheer wall. Though they weren't expected to climb up the total height of the Wall outside the training grounds, he'd determined that only once he did would he feel successful. The class had ended, most cadets filing away to lunch, but Eren remained suited up. He stared up the grey Wall, examining hundreds of spots where hooks had been embedded in. None of those made by the cadets surpassed halfway. As for his own attempts, he hadn't even managed a quarter.

"Mikasa," he said, turning - knowing she would be there. They had the lesson together, after all. "Can you show me how you do it?" He found it easier to watch and learn based off of that, and while he glowered with how perfect Mikasa seemed to do every manoeuvre, he was grateful for it as well. Now that they were near enough alone, he could focus better. It was hard watching one person's actions amongst thirty.

No matter what, to be a Scout, he had to nail the omni-directional mobility gear. If that meant copying Mikasa until he was as good as her, so be it.

Provided he could even manage that. She was a graceful dancer in the air. If his eyes weren't already green, they'd turn green with envy.

Reiner chuckled softly at that. Perhaps the food is what won Annie over in the end. If that's all it was, then good for them. "I'll have to keep in mind that food is a way to gain her friendship." he murmured with a soft smile. Maybe he could use that to his advantage if she was ever angry at him again. Which would undoubtedly happen.

Reiner smirked at that. He could only imagine how much of a fuss Sylvia probably put up at the change of lifestyle. It wasn't a life of nobility that was for sure. He was glad she was used to it now. Or at least she appeared to be. "Things will get better. I'm sure of it." he said. After all, they had been alright for the most part before Wall Maria was abandoned right? They had more room for their farms and such.

Feeling her hold on him tighten, he released a slow breath, relaxing fully. As much as he wanted to continue the hug, he could tell she was growing uncomfortable. After all, she almost fainted when they just held hands. This was probably pushing it.

Reiner pulled away from her, giving her a grateful smile. "Thank you, Sylvia." he murmured. He glanced away from her for a moment. "I...suppose I should get going. Let you get back to your book." he said. After all, she probably needed time to herself to comprehend everything that happened today. They could always meet up again another day.
